Mechanics Institute Library and Chess Room, San Francisco

It doesn't matter how well you think you know a place—there's always somewhere new worth exploring. San Francisco is packed with secret hideouts. One of my all-time favorites has to be the Mechanics Institute Library and Chess Room—and the rather incredible staircase contained within. Check it out the next time you're down on Post Street.
