Best Waterfall 

Huntington Falls

Yes, it's man-made and flows into the bird-filled Stow Lake rather than some Yosemite basin, but there's something about the kitschy Splash Mountain vibe of Huntington Falls that draws us back each time we stroll through the park. We often forget the falls were established far before Disneyland; the water has been flowing since the early 1900s, when Golden Gate Park designer John McLearn was inspired to create the structure after meeting with John Muir. Climb the stairs adjacent the falls, cross the bridge, and wind your way to the top of Strawberry Hill; the view is grand, just like the designer's vision.
