We love summertime here at Sunset View Cemetery & Mortuary! In Oakland, Berkeley, and the surrounding areas, great weather combines with family fun for incredible opportunities. There’s so much to experience as far as outdoor activities go, and our staff loves to spend the warmer months exploring the area with family and friends. Here are our favorite family fun summer activities in the Bay Area.


Pier 39

With unique shopping, first-rate dining, and exciting attractions, Pier 39 is one of the Bay Area’s most happening places to go when the weather’s warm. Visitors can hop on the carousel, check out the Mirror Maze, and visit the Aquarium of the Bay. While you’re there, don’t miss the sea lion show by the water. Click here for more information.


Golden Gate Park

With the gorgeous Japanese Tea Garden, peaceful lakes, and a variety of sporting facilities, Golden Gate Park has something for everyone. Visitors can take a Segway tour around the park’s 1,000 acres or enjoy a picnic lunch in the grassy Elk Glen surrounded by trees. Golf, baseball, horseback riding, and biking are just a few of the many outdoor activities your family will love here. Learn more about Golden Gate Park events here.


Muir Woods

See stunning redwood trees up close at one of our country’s most beautiful national parks. Muir Woods is a peaceful redwood forest that feels like a refuge from the hectic pace of everyday life. Apart from the redwood trees, expect to encounter a variety of flora and fauna as you roam the many wooded trails and secluded spaces. Children 15 and under get in free, making it a great family outing. For more information, click here.
