Our “My Spot” series shares personal experiences with special places in California.
For Josh Elmore, San Francisco's Sutro Baths holds a special place in his heart.
“I took my now, long-term girlfriend on our first date to the Sutro Baths,” he says. "It was after a long day. We had gone to a Giants game, to a karaoke bar for a friend’s birthday and then, I thought the perfect place to top off the night would be the Sutro Baths.”
Built in 1896 by former San Francisco Mayor Adolph Sutro, the baths once held seven swimming pools, five of them heated. It also housed a museum containing Egyptian mummies, as well as an ice skating rink, multiple swings, trampolines and slides.
