If you are a hopeless romantic, you can show that side of you by taking your date or significant other for an afternoon fun in the sun to Stow Lake at the Golden Gate Park. You can go on a boat ride around Stow Lake by renting a pedal boat or a row boat. Pedal boat might be fun for younger couple but row boat is definitely more romantic. Pack your picnic bag, rent the row boat and enjoy a nice afternoon in the park.

The lake itself feels very peaceful and soothing. There are plenty of ducks around the lake, even small turtles. You will feel like you are falling in love all over again. A word of caution though. If you want to rent a row boat, you better have good hand coordination. Rowing a boat is not as easy as you think. If you don’t know what you are doing, you might end up going in circle and nothing kills a romantic moment faster than a silly moment like that.

The Strawberry Hill is located in the middle of lake. You can row under the bridge that connects the main park to the hill. The Pagoda of the Japanese Tea Garden is located next to the lake and you will also see the man-made falls, the Huntington Falls.

This is a must-do for all the lovers out there. You’ve seen a moment like this in the movie and I am sure deep down you told yourself I wish I can do something like that. Well, now you have a chance to star in your own romantic movie.
