Months ago, I signed up for my first of many 5K races this year and was completely psyched – I even compiled the perfect playlist for running. However, upon waking up this morning, I was greeted by steady rain, constant winds, and a dreary forecast: Of course, the easiest alternative plan to take for such a catastrophe would be to spend the first Saturday of the month indoors, in fleece pajamas, sipping hot chocolate while binge-watching House of Cards on Netflix. However, if you’re desperate to get out of the house today, there’s a variety of activities you can look into that won’t involve having to be outdoors to bear the cold weather and has your brain constantly engaged, leaving no room to be depressed over the climate. Here are a couple of suggestions on what to do on a rainy Saturday in California, for your consideration:
You’re in one of the most popular, most artistic, and most culturally diverse cities in the country for a week, and you have no idea what to do or where to go. While there are countless of places you can check out for sure, most of them will require having more than that secret $20 you have wedged in between your library card and gym membership card you never use. Let’s face it – when you’re on a week-long trip and on a tight budget, your options are quite limited… JUST KIDDING! Sure, the city by the bay may in fact be one of the most expensive places to be in, but you don’t have to look under a rock to find things to do in San Francisco on a weekday for cheap. In fact, you can even find stuff to do for free! If you happen to be in the bay area this week to bid adieu to February and say hey to a (hopefully more climate-bearable) March, you can do so by enjoying a couple of these events with your friends or on your own.
