Shakespeare Garden relaxing in sf
Golden Gate Park

STROLL THROUGH THE SHAKESPEARE GARDEN

Start your day with a stroll through one of Golden Gate Park’s best-kept secrets. With coffee in hand, peruse the garden’s lush plants and flowers, many of which are referenced in the bard’s work. It’s so tucked away that most people miss it, so look carefully for the grove right off Music Concourse Drive between MLK Jr. Drive and the California Academy of Sciences.

MEDITATE WHILE TAKING A SOAK

You’ll want to reserve a couple of hours at Onsen to truly unwind. The new Japanese-inspired bathhouse has a communal soaking tub, steam room, sauna and private massage tables. (They also offer acupuncture treatment services.) In other words, it’s got all the things that will take you from stressed to Zen over the course of an afternoon.

GET A PEDICURE

Once you’re centered, continue to pamper yourself by polishing your tootsies with a pedicure at Mizu. The service focuses on intense hydration—which makes sense since mizu means water in Japanese—and is perfect before winter, when we tend to bundle up our feet and forget about them until spring.

HAVE A SPOT OF AFTERNOON TEA

After all the relaxing, you’ll need a little midday pick-me-up. Head over to the delightfully nostalgic 20th Century Cafe—think antique teacups, aproned servers and no laptops—and order yourself a slice of Russian honey cake with an Earl Grey.

dinner and a movie relaxing in sf
Alamo Drafthouse

TREAT YOURSELF TO DINNER AND A MOVIE

Order a burger and fries right from your seat at Alamo Drafthouse, and your server will deliver your meal while the opening credits roll. Sip a post-meal cocktail or save room for a boozy milk shake (we hear they’re to die for) to top off the most perfect you-day ever.
