I just got back from Bluff Park. It’s juuust outside of BS, and it’s a great place to hang out. There’s a big, grassy area with plenty of shade trees. There are benches, water fountains, a walking path. You get a beautiful vista of the beach below, with the ocean stretching out beyond. And in the distance, you can see DTLB and The Queen Mary.
I guess there are some
crazies people who don’t like the beach. Bluff Park is a great alternative. You get the views, plus a lovely breeze. If you’re going for a walk, starting at 36th Place, and heading west toward the museum, you can walk almost a mile. People work out there. It’s a great place for a picnic, too. Or just being lazy and soaking up some rays.
It’s never really crowded, and I’m not sure why. Maybe I shouldn’t have shared what a gem this little place is…
