Summer days are here, and it feels like the world is your oyster with so many fun things to do and adventures to be had. Many travelers will be heading to HI Marin Headlands hostel to hike along scenic trails, hang out with locals and their dogs at Rodeo Beach, and explore Sausalito sitting pretty alongside the Golden Gate Bridge. If you’re joining them, you might also be looking for some hidden gems and insider tips to sweeten the trip, and we know just the person who can point you in the right direction.
Anyone who enjoys traveling and yoga knows that while you’re on the road seeing new places and making new friends it’s not always easy to keep that fitness routine going. Plus, there’s all the different foods to try and spontaneous adventures that aren’t exactly conducive to a solid schedule of vinyasa flows and long hatha sessions. If you happen to be visiting HI San Francisco hostels though, you’ll find that there are ways you can incorporate your wanderlust with your yoga practice with classes taking place in the city’s sweet outdoor spaces.
Summer is here, and though San Francisco can sometimes seem like it’s a little late to the party, there are plenty of glorious hot days throughout the rest of Northern California perfect for bathing by a beach and cooling off with a swim. Check out these secret beaches and freshwater rivers and lakes conveniently close to HI USA hostels in Northern California where you can take in some pretty stunning scenery and spend the day splashing about.
On the surface, the city of Sausalito might seem like a standard tourist hot-spot with waterfront eateries, pricey boutiques, and not much else for the traveler who likes to go off the beaten path. But the truth is, if you venture off the main road, you’ll find the places where the locals hang out and the bayside city’s laid-back, artsy character is revealed.
At HI USA, we believe in the power of travel to open minds and the power of community service to open hearts. Above all, we believe that these experiences should be rewarding – not costly. That's why, for the sixth consecutive year, we are offering groups across the country free overnight stays at HI USA hostels in January and February 2016 through our Great Hostel Give Back (GHGB) program.
