After-Work Buddy Walk--Embarcadero/Fi­lbert Steps/Lombard/Aquati­c Beach--Dinner!

Join us for a fun buddy walk after work. Together, we will explore different walking paths, steps & hidden gems this beautiful city has to offer & experience it in a fun way. We will view some of the most beautiful points of the San Francisco Bay. It's a great way to enjoy the city & see some of the city's best points of interest: Coit Tower, Lombard Street, Aquatic Park & Beach & Fort Mason. Have a great time socializing while meeting new friends & enjoy lots of fun & laughter. Members in the group are always nice & friendly. We always have a lot of fun whenever we all get together with a couple of other meetup groups also invited. So join in on the fun! We look forward to seeing you there!

We will meet at the "front steps" of the San Francisco Ferry Building for a quick meet & greet, then we will walk down the Embarcadero towards Levi Strauss Plaza & take the Filbert Steps up to Coit Tower. From there, we will head down then up the crookedest street in the city, Lombard Street, to view some of the beautiful plants & flowers around the beautiful homes of the famous street. Then we retreat to the beauty & tranquility of Aquatic Park & Beach surrounded by some of the most picturesque & breathtaking views of the San Francisco Bay as we head up the path towards Fort Mason Great Meadows Park where we capture more magnificent views of the S.F. Bay. It's quite a distance & a few hills, so you will get a pretty good workout. We end the walk at 7:45pm where we will head for some tasty Asian food in the local area.

• HOW TO FIND US: Meet at the "front steps" of the San Francisco Ferry Building. If you may be running late, you may meet us mid-way. On the bottom of the description is the route we will be walking to the mid-way point at Columbus Ave & Lombard Street. Please be no later than 7pm if joining the group late. Thank you!
• LEVEL OF DIFFICULTY: This is an intermediate walk. We will be going at a moderate pace with many steps & hills, but we will take some rest stops to re-group & to take photos.

• AFTER WALK: If 3 or more members will like to go, we can go for dinner :)
