The Sutro Baths is one of my favorite places to visit and take out-of-towners.
Whether you know the unusual history of the turn of the century pool park and it's creator or not, it remains an intriguing and beautiful site. Overlooking the crashing waves of the Pacific and adjacent to some of the best hiking trails in the city, it is worth the trip.
If you want to see something magnificent, go in the evening on the night of a full moon and witness the shear raw power of Mother Ocean as she blasts the jagged rocks below with monsterous waves.
For more information on the Sutro Baths check your local bookstore, you won't believe what it used to look like!
