Pinpoint: Sutro Baths

What would you do if you won the lottery?

I don’t know about you but my answer would certainly be: “I would travel.” Travel around the Earth without having to worry about my finances, explore new destinations, experience different cultures, discover new food, and take photos. Countless of them.

*sighs*

Hopefully one day… But let’s step out of the dreamworld for a second. Because the real world is not that bad. There are many perks of living in the Bay Area.

Whoops. Sorry, I didn’t mean to create another Traffic Jam Incident there.

But on a serious note, the Bay Area is full of scenic routes and trails; gorgeous destinations with the view of Pacific Ocean. Photography Destinations are going to be one of our post concepts for Sundays to show you some of these beautiful destinations and tell you a little bit about them. If you like photography or hiking, you’ll love these posts. Our first featured destination is….

The Sutro Baths

The Sutro Baths were a large, privately owned public saltwater swimming pool complex located in Outer Richmond built by San Francisco’s wealthy entrepreneur and former mayor, Adolph Sutro.

This sumptuous facility was built in 1896, had a 2700-seat amphitheater, a museum showcasing a sizable collection of stuffed animals and historical artifacts, club rooms and a ice skating rink in addition to seven pools and private dressing rooms.

It was sadly destroyed by a fire in 1966.

The area is within the Golden Gate National Recreation Area and the Sutro Historic District. The foundations are still visible at this historic area, and it’s still definitely worth seeing.

Bring binoculars with you. You might be able to see a dolphin–maybe even a whale, if you’re lucky. Point Bonita Lighthouse and Golden Gate Bridge are also within seeing distance.

Share your photos with us if you go and visit the Sutro Baths. Here’s one of mine from October 2015:
