Fort Funston is effectively a gorgeous, oceanfront dog park. Scamper down the steep, sandy slope to find dogs and owners alike splashing in the surf. (Be careful, though—the undertow is no joke.) Alongside pups and strolling couples, you’ll see horseback riders from nearby Mar Vista Stables. Climb up the southern sand ladder to watch experienced hang-gliders soaring off the side of the cliff; Funston is one of the best gliding spots in the country, particularly in March and October.
