Can't ask for anything better then a beautiful hike and a cold beer waiting for you at the end. The Nature Tourist Club is one of a kind. Hidden amongst the trees in Muir Woods it has a beautiful location, great German beers (and wine), and board games to play. Make sure you check their website to see when they're open to the public. They have a Mayfest 5/18 you can buy tickets for on their website.
Make sure you check the calendar as the Tourist Club is only open to the public (non-members) certain days/times. If you're planning to go - head out early and enjoy a picnic with beer. There is limited space for entrance and seating, so going early has its rewards. Bring food in - there are only a couple options (chips, beef jerky). This is a really chill, fun weekend destination!
