420 Travel: Exploring San Leandro

San Leandro, Map, California

If you’re familiar with the San Francisco Bay area, then you’ve probably passed by San Leandro. This East Bay city of not quite 100,000 is adjacent to its big sister, Oakland.

San Leandro is known for its annual cherry festival, as well as being a generally pleasant place to live. And, given that recreational cannabis is legal in California, you can enjoy some quality 420 time there whether you’re a local or just visiting.

Take in Nature at Marina Park

San Leandro has some super nice outdoor spaces, and Marina Park is one of them. This popular destination is accessible via Fairway Drive and provides visitors with gorgeous views of San Francisco Bay.

Marina Park isn't just pretty things to look at though. It also offers covered seating areas, BBQ areas great for grilling tasty snacks. Have kids? There is an excellent playground where the little ones can run, laugh, and play to their heart’s content.

But maybe you are planning to spend the day without the littles. Marina Park is a great place to visit after enjoying cannabis at home and hopping on BART. The station is just a few miles from the park. You can Uber or enjoy the walk, just don’t forget the picnic lunch!

As for the cannabis in San Leandro to enjoy, we recommend Jeeter Juice Tropicana Cookies, a hybrid of indica and sativa. The high this weed vape gives you is great for being out and about, rendering you happy and functional but not sleepy. It tastes just like Girl Scout Cookies, too!

Look for Wildlife at Oyster Bay Regional Shoreline

Marina Park isn’t the only lovely outdoor space in San Leandro. To that end, consider checking out Oyster Bay Regional Shoreline. This respite isn’t far from Marina Park, either. So, you can plan to visit both places on the same day if you are able (but you don’t have to).

Oyster Bay Regional Shoreline is known for its abundant wildlife, which is why nature enthusiasts enjoy visiting this bayfront gem. Keep an eye out for birds in the sky, marine life in the water, and cute dogs accompanied by their human companions.

There are also lots of hiking trails at the park for walking, jogging, and biking, so if you’re in the mood for exercise, this is a place to get your steps in. You can also enjoy the people-watching, as it can be pretty entertaining.

Your trip to the Oyster Bay Regional Shoreline would surely be enhanced after noshing at home beforehand on Kiva’s Petra Mints in Moroccan Mint flavor. These tasty hybrid cannabis edibles are designed for folks with an active lifestyle, and can be precisely measured for the perfect dose. 

Enjoy Cannabis in San Leandro at the Farmer’s Market

Farmer’s markets are always fun places to visit, thanks to all of the sights, sounds, colors, and textures. The same is true for the farmer’s market in San Leandro. The city celebrates all-things local on Parrott Street from spring through fall. That’s right by the BART station, too!

The San Leandro farmer’s market has all that you would expect when it comes to produce and other staple food items. You’re also likely to find activities like wine tastings, cooking demonstrations, and live music events, to name just a few.

Another nice thing about the San Leandro farmer’s market is that it’s not far from other great shops, restaurants, and pubs in the downtown area. To that end, you could spend a whole afternoon exploring the area after hitting the market in the morning.

For your farmer’s market adventure, split a pre-roll of Dime Bag Durban Poison with a friend at home before you hop on BART to San Leandro. This sativa is perfect for folks who just want a lift and have a good time. We suspect you'll find the colors of the farmers market pop, just a little bit more as well.

Cannabis in San Leandro, Making Green Spaces a Little More Green

San Leandro is a prime example of a peaceful community that’s made an effort to preserve green spaces. Of course, spending time in these areas is always a little more fun when you’re safely and legally enjoying a cannabis high. So go forth and enjoy.
