Finding Funston

A getaway for beach-lovers and fluffy dog enthusiasts. In other words, me.

Part of Golden Gate Recreation Area, Fort Funston is tucked into the southwest corner of San Francisco. The park has cliffs, paths, views for days, and a sandy beach. That being said, it’s still SF – so a jacket is still definitely required.

When planning my move to SF, I combed through Instagram, rabidly seeking and following accounts of Bay Area photographers, designers and all around IG stars. I wanted my feed to be inundated with gorgeous shots – in part to get me excited for the trek, but also to do all that I could to avoid changing my mind or backing out. Let me tell you, it worked.

Many shots I came across were from this mysterious Fort Funston, so when my roommate suggested a trip out one Sunday, I was all in.

Did I mention it’s an off-leash dog beach? If you hate fluffy, frolicking dogs, don’t go here. If your heart is melting just looking at this little guy below, then this is a place for you.
