San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA): SFMOMA is home to works by Ansel Adams, Frida Kahlo, Andy Warhol, Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, Jackson Pollock, Paul Klee, and more. The museum’s iconic building was designed by Mario Botta and opened in 1995. 151 Third Street, 357-4000, www.sfmoma.org.

The Castro Theater: Located at 429 Castro Street, the Castro Theater was built in 1922 with a Spanish Colonial Baroque façade that pays homage — in its great arched central window surmounted by a scrolling pediment framing a niche — to the recently rebuilt basilica of Mission Dolores nearby. Its designer, Timothy L. Pflueger, also designed Oakland’s Paramount Theater. www.thecastrotheatre.com

Golden Gate Bridge: More than 10 million people visit the breathtaking Golden Gate Bridge each year. It was the longest suspension bridge span in the world when it was completed in 1937, and has become an internationally recognized symbol of San Francisco and California. Considered one of the world’s most beautiful bridges, it is a must on every visitor’s list. You can walk across the Golden Gate Bridge, bike, or drive — it’s up to you. www.goldengatebridge.org

Coit Tower: If you want to get a good workout and enjoy excellent views of San Francisco, then Coit Tower is a must. Walk up Telegraph Hill to Coit Tower, then take the elevator up to the observation deck to enjoy the views. But before you do so, check out the Depression-era murals in the lobby. It’s free to explore the lobby and vista points, but it costs $3.75 to ride the elevator up to the observation deck. 362-0808. Hours: 10:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m.

The Mission District: The nexus of the Latino community and a neighborhood of artists and hipsters, the Mission is home to many colorful Latin American-themed murals and a thriving cultural scene as well as many excellent and reasonably-priced restaurants. In addition, the Mission’s geographical location insulates it from the fog and wind making it warmer and sunnier than the rest of the city.

North Beach: Located between two of San Francisco’s busiest areas — Fisherman’s Wharf and Chinatown, is North Beach — San Francisco’s Little Italy. The area is home to excellent restaurants, clubs, and cafes, and well as churches, parks, festivals and many beautiful San Francisco hotels. www.sfnorthbeach.org.

Golden Gate Park: At 1,013 acres, Golden Gate Park is San Francisco’s largest park and bigger than New York’s Central Park. The park is home to more than 1 million trees, a lily pond, several fly casting pools, and nine lakes. The Strybing Arboretum and Botanical Garden is located here as well as the Conservatory of Flowers and the 9-hole Golden Gate Park Golf Course. www.parks.sfgov.org/site/recpark_index.asp

Chinatown: Established in the 1850s, San Francisco’s Chinatown is one of the largest and most prominent centres of Chinese activity outside of China. Occupying an area roughly 1 mile long by 1.34 miles wide, it is filled with historic sites as well as souvenir shops, herbal medicine shops, and—not surprisingly—home to some of the City’s finest Chinese restaurants. www.sanfranciscochinatown.com.

Cable Car Museum: Home to a collection of historic cable cars, mechanical displays, and images dedicated to the preservation of cable car history. Open from 9 am to 5 pm, the Cable Car Museum is located in the WashingtonMason powerhouse and carbarn on Nob Hill. 1201 Mason Street, 474-1887, www.cablecarmuseum.org.
