As a kid growing up in the Bay Area, I was lucky to have so many amazing places to explore with my friends. We spent our days hiking in the redwood forests, playing in the waves at the beach, and discovering the best parks and coffee shops.
Looking back, I am grateful for all the amazing experiences I had growing up in the Bay Area. These photos of my favorite places are a reminder of the incredible beauty and diversity of the region. I still have a lot of items in my bucket list to visit!
