If you like karaoke, there are several lounges in San Bruno where you can throw your name in the mix to entertain the crowd. There are also live music performances at some local bars, and you can hear everything from rock to jazz. City of San Bruno Free Concerts in the Park takes place every August, where you can relax on the green and hear some blues. Take a lawn chair and a cooler and get ready to enjoy some lively tunes. Head into San Francisco, and check out the historic venue the Fillmore if you want to hear more music.
A Bird's Eye View
Up a winding road lies San Bruno Mountain, the largest open urban space in the United States. It is 3,300 acres of verdant emerald grass and tranquil beauty. There is a spectacular view of the San Francisco Bay from the top, so put on your hiking shoes on and make the trek. San Bruno Point Park is right on the water, and you can sit at a table or on the grass and gaze out at the shimmering dark blue depths. A clean, kid-friendly park, it is a favorite spot of both residents and visitors.
Adventures in the Art
Whether you are looking to browse or buy, there are art galleries in San Bruno and nearby South San Francisco that fit the bill. Vivid Italian oil paintings and richly hued clay pottery pieces are on exhibit, and every item has a story to go with it. Classical music lovers can enjoy melodic strains of such composers as Brahms and Schumann at Davies Hall. The acoustics here are second to none and the hall is both elegant and cozy. An added bonus is that these locations are easily accessible via the Civic Center BART stop.
