In need of a local getaway? We suggest heading all the way west to the
beach-bordered Outer Sunset 'hood. Thanks to a bevy of multi-talented
surfers and creative types who call the oft-foggy area home, a couple
handfuls of shops and restaurants have popped up in the area just
recently, and have quickly made it the ultimate day trip destination.
Bonus: You don't even need a car to get there! Instead, it's all
accessible from the N Judah, which stretches from the ballpark all the
way to the ocean. And that's where you'll find gems like the utterly
scrumptious Outerlands eatery, the dreamy General Store boutique with
a to-die-for garden out back, some of the best java around at Trouble
Coffee (if you're not into coffee, try sipping juice from a coconut instead),
not to mention the awe-inspiring Ocean Beach itself. Just
click through our quickie must-hit list after the jump, and leave the
planning to us.
