San Francisco, CA

I just wanted to make a plug for fruit picking farms in Brentwood (the area just an hour east of San Francisco). There are 40 farms and many of them offer u-pick options for fruits like cherries, peaches, etc. Such a fun place to take the family - my husband and I can't wait to go this year! Most farms start opening this month. Some tips: - It does get hot so bring plenty of water and sun hats/sunscreen - Only porto-o potties - Bring a lunch to picnic under the trees with your bounty of fruit - Go early in the day to beat the sun & tour busses Here's more information about it if you want to check it out:
