Sometimes the most exciting adventures are found being a tourist in your own city. Take the 5 Fulton bus west towards Golden Gate Park, get off near Crossover Drive, and head towards Stow Lake. Since 1893, the lake has given San Franciscans a place to escape the city and enjoy natural vistas and hiking trails. Stow Lake is an opportune spot for a picnic or a paddleboat ride. Escape the sun under the bright red Chinese pagoda – a gift given to the park from San Francisco’s ‘sister city’ of Taipei. Some say the lake is haunted by the White Lady, leaving only the courageous to journey there after nightfall. She is said to appear after dusk when the statue in her honor comes to life.
For us the best places are found when you venture off the paved pathways to see the Stow Lake from above. We love to hike to the top of Strawberry Hill overlooking the rolling neighborhoods of the city. As the sun sets over Ocean Beach watch the paddle boaters race to get their skiffs to the boat house before it closes. During festival season music revelers filter through the park to pack into Polo Fields. If you are looking to relax away from the crowds pack a blanket and some wine to listen to the echoes of the music above Stow Lake.
What's your Stow Lake story?
I really like both the Farallon and Stow Lake shirts that I purchased. I'm a 38"" bust, 35"" waist and 42"" hip, so I have a really hard time finding button up shirts that fit well. Either they are too tight in the bust or too generous of a boyfriend cut. The Tradlands shirts fit VERY well. Slimish and feminine, with enough room for the girls. The Hammerhead shark fabric is very unique and I've been getting lots of compliments. I'm already a big fan of chambray and swiss dot, so the Stow Lake was a gimme for me. Well done Tradlands. I look forward to wearing these shirts for year to come.
You all have just won me over!!!!!! I try, try and try again to wear men's stuff all the time, because I have a body that doesn't have many curves, but it still looks like a men's shirt on a woman. It's such a bummer, but now, I have no reason to be bummed out. I have found Tradlands. The XS fits me impeccably. I really appreciate that your shirts are made in SF and are done so well. I will be a lifetime customer, I am sure. Button downs are my "go-to" shirt for work and play. Thank you so much for creating a shirt so needed and done so well. Best, Suzie Rudloff
My new Tradlands Stow Lake shirt is the Number 1 favorite item in my wardrobe. Not only is it beautifully made and the perfect fit, but it looks great with everything and is really comfortable. I'm a convert!
