    We have an ever-growing list of thrilling things to do in S.F. So, we’ll admit, there are times when we can be a bit indecisive. Picking between grabbing a cup of coffee, noshing a pastry (or four), becoming one with nature, peeping works by the Bay Area’s brightest artists or indulging in a little shopping can be damn near impossible.

    With all those options under one roof you’d assume you’d need a map to get around the place. Nope — Trailhead comes together and coexists in one astonishingly small space. Plus, with the shop being part of A Temporary Offering, Renoir Hotel’s collection of semi-temporary businesses, you can add cocktails at Rio Grande and great grub at FoodLab to the day’s plans. We promise you’ll feel like you accomplished a weeks worth of adventures in one fell swoop. We know a picture's worth a thousand words, so we'll let our camera do the talking. Click through our snaps of the shop and plan your trek to Trailhead today!
