View meteor showers from these low-light spots in the Bay

There's something so magical about watching the night sky explode with lights from a meteor shower. Unfortunately most of the Bay Area is riddled with light pollution, so you’ll want to grab a Gig and drive out someplace dark to take in the show.

You don’t have to go too far, really. Here are some of the best stargazing options in the area.

North Bay

  • Mount Tamalpais: Located just north of San Francisco in the heart of Marin County, you’ll be able to find a sweet spot at this park to witness the astronomical magic. The park closes after 7 p.m. – unless you're camping, so you’ll want to bring camping gear and snag a reservation or one of their first come, first serve sites.  
  • Point Reyes: Stargazing across the majestic Pacific Ocean is epic, and this beach is one of the best. You can pick up fire and camping permits at the Bear Valley Visitors Center.

East Bay

Don’t forget to bring your Gig Card to lock/unlock your ride outside cell service. If you haven’t received a card yet, you can request one in the app or pick one up at the Oakland Rockridge and Berkeley AAA branches.
