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.
