K.l. Hamilton Saturdays are the STEM classes which are about 30 minutes long. Attend five classes and get a free pass to something else. Exploratorium in SF, Lawrence Hall of Science at Berkeley. Sundays are open biking on Canada Rd, from 9am to 3pm without being encumbered by auto traffic. The beach at Pacifica. Rent a boat on Stowe lake in GG Park. The Hiller aviation museum in San Carlos. Walk through nature at Sawyer camp trail or San Bruno Mountain, or just stretch your legs to the top of Sign Hill (always a good view). Take the ferry for a ride on the Bay! Check with SSF Park and Rec, they still have some stuff open till the end of summer.
