1913 Bridgeway, Sausalito, CA 94965, USA

Just north of the northern end of the Golden Gate Bridge in Marin County, the little town of Sausalito has an enviable location sitting on San Francisco Bay. For much of its history, Sausalito had a somewhat raffish reputation first as the home of...

Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco, CA 94129, USA

There is perhaps no landmark of San Francisco, and perhaps even the entire state of California, more iconic than the Golden Gate Bridge. This much-photographed bridge spans the Golden Gate, the strait separating San Francisco (to the south) and...

Golden Gate Park, San Francisco, CA, USA
The San Francisco Rose Society puts on some beautiful shows in Golden Gate Park. It's great if you're interested in gardening, want to take some photos, or are just looking for a relaxing activity in the park.

Located within Golden Gate Park, the San Francisco Botanical Garden is one of the United States' most important botanical gardens and the largest of its kind on the West Coast. Thanks to the Bay Area's mild climate, with coastal fogs keeping...

75 Hagiwara Tea Garden Dr, San Francisco, CA 94118, USA
The Japanese Tea Garden has been a special place for multiple generations of my family. It may be small, but it feels like an entire world apart, a pocket of beauty and peace in Golden Gate Park and the ever-busy city. For me, a visit here always...

50 Hagiwara Tea Garden Dr, San Francisco, CA 94118, USA
I highly suggest visiting the de Young Museum at Golden Gate Park. Not only is it in a great part of the city, with great art to boot, they have an incredible observation deck at the very top! This was my first time at the de Young Museum and...

55 Music Concourse Dr, San Francisco, CA 94118, USA
The academy of arts and science museum in golden gate park offers a whole day of fun and learning. A planetarium, an aquarium and a rainforest is such a diverse experience under one roof which is designed with the environment in mind. The roof is...

151 3rd St, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA
This is a cool place to visit in San Francisco and if you buy a city pass you get free admission! You can find more info on the city pass by searching for it on google. Bring a camera and shoot away, but there are certain exhibits that you're not...

Taylor St, San Francisco, CA 94133, USA
As a San Francisco resident, I avoid Fisherman's Wharf like the plague. But when my friends come into town, I love showing them the sea lions who are always there taking naps in the sun or the fog. Well worth the crowds you have to brave to get...

There are several Chinatowns in the Bay Area, but this 24-block one is the oldest—not just in San Francisco, but in all of North America. The first record of Chinese settlers in San Francisco dates their arrival to 1848, but the gold rush a...

736 Mission St, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA

While San Francisco's Contemporary Jewish Museum dates back to 1994, it moved into its current location in 2008. The heart of the museum's new home is a 1907 Pacific Gas & Electric power substation, with additions designed by one of...

1100 California St, San Francisco, CA 94108, USA

San Francisco's first Grace Church dates back to the days of the gold rush, when an Episcopal church by that name was founded in 1849. Construction of the Grace Cathedral that now stands atop Nob Hill began in 1928, though the building was not...

It was a pain in the butt to get a decent shot of the island with all the fog and mist.
Save Place
Filbert St & Stockton Street, San Francisco, CA 94133, USA

Adjacent to San Francisco's Chinatown, North Beach was long the center of the city's Italian community. (Joe DiMaggio and former mayor Joe Alioto are among the famous Italian Americans who grew up here.) The symbolic heart of the neighborhood is...

1 Dr Carlton B Goodlett Pl, San Francisco, CA 94102, USA

Even if you aren't a San Francisco resident, you may recognize its City Hall thanks to its frequent big-screen appearances. (It has often played the role of the capitol building of various fictional countries.) This grand edifice has a dome taller...

200 Larkin St, San Francisco, CA 94102, USA

Given that San Francisco has frequently had one eye on the Pacific, and that generations of immigrants from Asia have shaped the city's history, it is perhaps not surprising that one of the world's premier institutions devoted to Asian art can be...

Save Place
333 Post St, San Francisco, CA 94108, USA

Somewhat as Times Square is to New York or Trafalgar Square is to London, Union Square is to San Francisco. This is the place where the city's Christmas tree is erected and the New Year rung in. Its role as the city's principal gathering spot...

Steiner St & Hayes Street, San Francisco, CA 94117, USA

An estimated 48,000 houses were constructed in San Francisco from 1848 to 1915 in the style typical of the day, with ornate woodwork characteristic of so-called Queen Anne design. Earthquakes and fires, most notably those of 1906, destroyed...
