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

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

click through our quickie must-hit list after the jump, and leave the
planning to us.
