Sportsman’s Report: Free Saturdays at the de Young

By: Bill Hanson
November 8, 2019

Here is a great gift for you from the board of directors of the de Young and The Legion of Honor museums. “We’ve extended our Free Saturdays program to include all residents of the nine-county Bay Area. If you live in Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Solano, or Sonoma County, receive free general admission to the de Young and the Legion of Honor every Saturday. As part of Free Saturdays, you can enjoy a variety of free programming, sketching in the galleries, enhanced gallery tours, and more. Visit our website now to plan your next visit the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco: FAMSF  https://www.famsf.org”

This is the key for great fun and foundation building for the appreciation of the arts. If you have been to the museums you know the cost of lunch there, $25 per person is what you should expect to pay, for cafe food they get high marks. Packing a picnic hamper is a wonderful thing, at the Legion you can eat on the lawn or pick a bench and watch the shipping traffic pass through the Golden Gate. At the de Young Museum there is the main concourse with ample benches and plenty to see. Parking is $10 or more in the parking lot under the de Young. In Golden Gate Park street parking is free, the issue is finding a spot within walking distance. The Legion of Honor has free parking. For either venue, get there just before opening to get a premium parking space. The bridge fare is an additional cost and the drive from Rohnert Park/Cotati is usually fast on Sat. morning, under one-hour drive and parking time is a good rule of thumb. Their web site has decent directions, for the de Young make three rights at Cabrillo which equals a left off of Park Presidio, a few blocks towards town turn right on tenth, the parking lot is straight ahead. The Legion is a right on Clement just after the tunnel on Park Presidio, drive West to Lincoln Park Golf course and make another right. 

For a great fishing site visit Facebook and check out the group: Bay Area Fishing, the overview will list a few other groups, one being North Bay Anglers. The membership posts information on the group site which can be a real help in becoming familiar with local fishing. If you are a fisher or would like to become one, the bay area and the North bay in particular has great saltwater opportunities and some great freshwater locations to wet a line.
