BABIES: Stroller tours

DuckyBugaboo, the trendy, uber expensive stroller company, has done up a list of stroller tours, fun, baby-friendly walks through various cities, including San Francisco. We have no quibble with that — we like Golden Gate Park too and the Japanese Tea Garden is particularly lovely. (Added factlet, GG park does free, guided stroller tours at 10 a.m. on the first and third Wednesdays of the month — exercise, fresh air, meet other parents, and no one will turn up their nose at your cheap but eminently practical, non-Bugaboo’d umbrella stroller.)
But we’re wishing someone would conjure up some cool stroller tours for the East Bay too. Turns out “Self-Made Mom”, a Chicago area blogger, had a similar idea. Well, no, not about the East Bay. She made up her own Windy City stroller tour and this one actually has parking and navigable cafes — Bugaboo apparently has exalted views on its stroller’s ability to climb staircases and thread through tiny, crowded venues. Hers is a real-world stroller trek, complete with playground, cafe and shopping recommendations. Big fun. We need some of those too. Where do you stroll? Iron Horse Trail and then …?

    Our favorite Oakland stroller tour: along the Lake Merritt shoreline to the Grand Lake Farmers Market on Saturday morning. Afterward, you can stop for Peet’s, roll through Silver Moon children’s resale or Baby Gap, and when the little one gets antsy, visit the nifty little toddler town at the pocket playground on Grand Avenue, just past the new tea bar.
