It’s International Picnic Day on Saturday. Nothing beats spending some time under the sun, a basket full of goodies by our side. Le Tote’s marketing team shares their fave picnic spots…
My go-to picnic spot would probably be Memorial Glade. I suppose you could call it the Dolores Park of Berkeley. Right in front of Doe Library, this huge field has a great view of the Campanile. I love going there to sprawl out on a blanket and catch up with my friends over Thai takeout on a sunny afternoon. From time to time, there are also events there like concerts or movie screenings at night. All in all, it’s a great place to have fun and to take a break from the busyness of life.
Sheep Meadow in Central Park is a great spot for relaxing and people watching!
Potter Lake is the perfect picnic spot during summertime. It is a huge space that overlooks a lake filled with tons of lily pads. You get an incredible view of The University of Kansas and there are plenty of walkways to explore other areas close by.
Nothing beats the chill vibe of Dolores Park. It’s the pulse of San Francisco and no trip to this city is complete without a Dolores Park picnic. Take a bottle of rose, a magazine and some sunscreen, put your phone away and soak in the sun for some me-time. Alternatively, go with a bunch of friends — lay out a blanket and get ready to spend a day you won’t forget in a hurry.
My favorite picnic spot is Blendon Woods. Blendon Woods is an enormous park in Columbus, OH, and though it’s not the most scenic place I’ve ever picnicked, it’s filled with memories. From post-cross country practice pig outs to grad parties, Blendon Woods has been home to too many good times to count. It truly feels like you’re cut off from the outside world and I think that’s key for really being in the moment with the people you care about.
