Sutro Baths is an awesome historical ruin. For more information on the history of the building, go here!It's an easy place to get to since it's right on the outskirts of Richmond and follows the beautiful coastline with the Pacific Ocean directly to your left. When you get there, there's a decent sized lot. Right away you can go left to the water or right to the woods.

Towards the water, there's steps leading down to the ruins. It's a perfect mix between urban and wild. The buildings are overgrown with plants and wildflowers and flooded with water, yet concrete and rubble are everywhere you look, some with spray painted artwork.There's a lot to explore just be wary on rocks, it's easy to slip!

Going into the woods, there are beautiful trees as well as wildflowers. It's a well maintained path with a lot of lookouts. Make sure to bring your camera!
