City Sights Built on 43 hills, covering 49 square miles and

surrounded by water on three sides, San Francisco packs an incredible number of sights into a small and compact area. From the Golden Gate Bridge to the “crookedest street”, from Fisherman’s Wharf to Golden Gate Park, there are more admission free attractions in San Francisco than any other destination in California. If you find the City’s infamous hills intimidating, ride on a historic cable car to take in some must-see sights. Remember to explore San Francisco’s unique neighborhoods to see what makes The City by The Bay one the most vibrant places in the world to live or visit.

r GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE (SF Map: D1) The Golden Gate Bridge (Highway 101 North) links San Francisco with Marin County. Before its completion in 1937, the bridge was considered unbuildable because of foggy weather, 60-mile-perhour winds and strong ocean currents sweeping through a deep rugged canyon below. At a cost of $35 million, the 1.2-mile bridge took more than four years to build. Eleven men lost their lives during construction. Often shrouded in thick fog, the bridge sways 27 feet to withstand winds of up to 100 miles per hour. The color of the bridge, known as International Orange, was chosen because it blends well with the bridge’s natural surroundings. The two great cables contain enough strands of steel wire (80,000 miles) to encircle the equator three times. The concrete poured into its piers and anchorages would pave a five-foot wide sidewalk from New York to San Francisco. Pedestrians and bicyclists are allowed across the bridge on pathways with sweeping views of the City, Alcatraz and the Marin Headlands. The bridge toll for vehicles is $6 collected electronically at the toll plaza when entering San Francisco (no cash payment). Electronic options include

9

Vantage points from the San Francisco side include the Toll Plaza and Visitors Center (before crossing the bridge), where you can take a virtual picture of yourself atop the bridge towers or cables, and at Fort Point (under the bridge). The first exit on the Marin side of the bridge, Vista Point,provides outstanding views of the San Francisco skyline. The best way to see the bridge is to walk across it which takes about an hour round trip. When walking the bridge dress warmly whatever time of year. Free parking is available on the north side at Vista Point, paid parking is available on the south side at the Visitor Center near the toll booths. The postcard-perfect panorama seen here was captured from the Marin Headlands (the last exit in Marin County before crossing the bridge) For more information go online:

City Sights There were 14 attempts to escape Alcatraz during its 29-year tenure as a federal penitentiary. Most attempts ended with escapees being recaptured or killed.

r ALC ATRA Z (SF Map: L0) Alcatraz Island has served as a harbor fortification, military detention facility and maximum-security federal penitentiary. The West Coast’s first and oldest operating lighthouse is also located on the island. Today Alcatraz is one of San Francisco’s top tour attractions; over one million people visit Alcatraz each year. Most curiosity surrounding Alcatraz focuses on the period when the island served as the infamous maximum-security prison for notorious Mafia criminals and high-risk convicts. In 1934 control of Alcatraz shifted from the US military to the Department of Justice who found itself ill equipped to deal with the violent crime surge that followed the Great Depression. Citizens lived in fear as mobsters and thugs ruled the streets in many metropolitan cities. Alcatraz proved the perfect solution for incarcerating the country’s most violent of criminals. A foremost security expert was commissioned to design a 600-cell escape-proof prison where a ratio of one guard to every three prisoners was maintained. The first prisoners on Alcatraz were handpicked from other penitentiaries and were among the nation’s most unmanageable convicts. Al Capone, Machine Gun Kelly and Robert “Birdman” Stroud were among the first group of inmates to arrive. Crimes committed by the hardened criminals who resided on the island ranged from bank robbery to rape to murder. Upon arrival at Alcatraz new prisoners were assigned to a private cell and provided with only life’s most basic necessities: clothing, food, water and medical care; anything above and beyond this was considered a privilege. Inmates were required to observe a strict silence policy, only being allowed to talk during meals and recreation. Historically, many prison riots had been started because of the poor quality of prison food so Warden James Johnston vowed that the Alcatraz cafeteria would be the best in the prison system. Prisoners of Alcatraz dined on a menu of salads, fresh fruit, diverse entrees and even desserts. Although the island is only 1.25 miles from shore, there is no evidence of any successful escapes across the icy Bay. The prison was the only one in the federal system that touted hot showers—a luxury designed to keep prisoners from acclimating to the cold water.

Frank Lee Morris and Clarence and John Anglin made the most famous escape attempt in 1962. The movie, Escape from Alcatraz, starring Clint Eastwood, was based on their elaborate plot. Using homemade tools to break out of their cells, the inmates made their way off the island using rafts and inflatable life vests made from prison issued raincoats. Many still speculate whether or not the inmates survived the cold and rough waters to reach land and the US Marshals continue to hunt for the escapees. In 1963 the decision to close Alcatraz was made by US Attorney General Robert Kennedy. Alcatraz desperately needed repair from extensive saltwater and air corrosion at a time when budgets were being cut. At three times the operating expenses of other penitentiaries, Alcatraz was simply too costly to keep open. The isolation (and hence lack of natural resources) that had made the island such an attractive site for a maximumsecurity prison ultimately sealed its fate. “The Rock” is now a popular tourist attraction. The 12-acre island is part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area and is accessible only by Alcatraz Cruises boats which depart daily from Pier 33 near Fisherman’s Wharf on the Embarcadero. To avoid disappointment, purchase Alcatraz tickets well in advance. In summer months and on holiday weekends, Alcatraz sells out as early as 3-4 weeks in advance. On days when the Alcatraz tour is sold out, consider a bay cruise which passes close to the island for photos. Be aware that to reach the cellhouse visitors must walk up a steep hill. The distance from the dock to the cellhouse is approximately 1/4 mile and equivalent to a 13-story climb. Visitors unable to make this climb may take advantage of an hourly electric shuttle. A self-guide brochure of Alcatraz Island (printed in English, Spanish, Italian, Spanish, German or Japanese) is available at the dock for a fee. For more information go online:

Atop Telegraph Hill is the 210-foot Coit Tower, built with funds left to the City by philanthropist Lillie Hitchcock Coit for the beautification of San Francisco. Due to Coit’s admiration for the fire fighters who fought the 1906 earthquake fires, many believe the tower was designed in the shape of a fire hose nozzle.

Other activities at Fisherman’s Wharf include shoping at Anchorage Square, bicycle rentals and wine tasting.

neighborhood. The Haight Ashbury community is universally recognized for its creativity and diversity expressed by the hybrid mixture of shops, residents, and its landmark place in history. The style and ingenuity that started in the sixties still rings true today.

r LOMBARD STREET (SF Map: L3-4) Located in the Russian Hill district, Lombard Street is known as “the crookedest street in the world” because of its eight sharp turns on a 40-degree slope. The turns, known as switchbacks, were built in the 1920s to allow traffic to descend the steep incline. The street zigzags around beautiful flowers and shrubs and offers a nice view of the bay. There are stairways (without curves) on either side of the street for pedestrians. The descent begins at Hyde Street.

r VIC TORIANS (SF Map: J5 & G9) Nearly 514 blocks of San Francisco, including much of Nob Hill and Van Ness Avenue, were destroyed by the 1906 earthquake and fire. Many beautiful examples of nineteenth-century Victorian architecture were lost in the disaster.

Today some 14,000 Victorians have been preserved west of Van Ness Avenue in the Cow Hollow, Pacific Heights and Alamo Square districts. Distinguished by their design features, the three styles of Victorians include the Italianate, the Stick and the Queen Anne. The Italianate which flourished in the 1870s is identified by a flat roof (often hidden behind a false front), slim pillars flanking the front door and bays with side windows that slant inward. These narrow row houses were patterned after Roman Classical ornamentation. Outstanding examples of the Italianate can be found at Bush and Fillmore streets. The Stick, which peaked in popularity during the 1880s, added ornate woodwork outlines to the doors, frames and bay windows of the Italianate design. Other additions included the “French” cap, gables and the “three-sided rectangle” bays. View classic San Francisco Sticks at Laguna near Bush streets. Designs changed dramatically with the Queen Anne Victorians in 1890. Turrets, towers, a steep and gabled roof, arches, spindles, glass art windows and sections of shingle siding distinguish the Queen Anne from her predecessors. Tour a

Postcard Row is possibly the most photographed spot in the City. These colorful Victorian houses or “Painted Ladies” with the San Francisco skyline in the backdrop have graced many postcards and movie scenes. Capture the view from the center of the park on the edge of Alamo Square at Steiner and Hayes streets.

r THE EMBARC ADERO (SF Map: N-Q6-7) The Embarcadero is a waterfront boulevard lined with elegant palm trees, historic pier structures, hip eateries and luxury apartments and condominiums. San Francisco’s eastern waterfront has emerged as one of the City’s most exciting new neighborhoods. The Ferry Building serves as the marker from which piers are numbered, odd numbers are located to the north and even numbers to the south. Located inside is the Ferry Building Marketplace which consists of gourmet shops and restaurants. An outdoor farmer’s market is held Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday mornings. Riding a Muni F-line vintage streetcar is a fun way for visitors to view the San Francisco Bay, Coit Tower and famous Fisherman’s Wharf. The fleet of restored streetcars includes international and domestic trolleys from the 1920s and ’30s. The popular F-line runs a total of five miles beginning at its western terminal in the Castro district, down Market Street to the Embarcadero and ending at Jones and Beach streets in Fisherman’s Wharf.

A historical visitor center and retail venue featuring historic displays and videos about this landmark building. Located at: 600 Montgomery St. (Clay St. side) San Francisco Open Mon – Fri 10 am – 3 pm (415) 500-6637.

Now open at Pier 15 on the Embarcadero is the magnificent new home of the Exploratorium, a hands-on interactive science museum.

r C ABLE C ARS The cable car was introduced to San Francisco on August 2, 1873. Wire-cable manufacturer Andrew Hallidie conceived the idea after witnessing an accident in which a horse-drawn carriage faltered and rolled backward downhill dragging the horses behind it. The first cable car to descend down Clay Street on Nob Hill was an immediate success. Besides creating a vital link in San Francisco’s public transportation system, the cable car opened the door for building on steep hills which until this time was thought to be impossible.

car routes and a total of 52.8 miles. Cable cars remained the primary mode of transportation until the 1906 earthquake. The quake and the fires that followed destroyed most of the cable car system, and as the City rebuilt, few lines were restored. A municipal railway replaced most lines. San Francisco’s beloved cable cars are the only vehicles of their kind still in operation and are designated National Landmarks.

r CHINATO WN (SF Map: M - N5-6) As you pass through the dragon-adorned Pagoda Gates on Grant Avenue at Bush Street, your senses will be tempted by the aroma of ethnic cuisine, bright neon and the sound of foreign languages. The heart of Chinatown is Portsmouth Square where San Francisco’s first Chinese immigrants settled in the 1850s. Today, Chinatown is home to more than 10,000 of San Francisco’s Chinese residents.

garment factories, fresh produce markets, seafood and poultry shops, and many fine restaurants. Visit the first Roman Catholic cathedral built on the West Coast, Old St. Mary’s Church (660 California/Kearny) built in 1854 by Chinese laborers.

r NORTH BEACH (SF Map: M-N4) North Beach, tucked between Chinatown and Fisherman’s Wharf, is a favorite gathering spot for visitors and locals alike. Waves of immigrants have created a diverse ethnic mix in North Beach which is often compared to Paris’ Left Bank. Today, the area is predominantly Italian and known as Little Italy of the West.

Visitors will find traditional herb pharmacies, temples, fortune cookie factories, garment factories, fresh produce markets, seafood and poultry shops, and many fine restaurants.

It’s the restaurants, however, that draw the crowds to North Beach, and you won’t be disappointed with any selection that you make. Traditional cafes, Italian delicatessens selling homemade ravioli, and bakeries offering tempting pastries line Columbus Avenue.

Most local Chinese commerce remains along Stockton Street where visitors will find traditional herb pharmacies, temples, fortune cookie factories,

One of the City’s oldest structures is Mission Dolores, the sixth Franciscan mission along El Camino Real. Valencia Street has become the epicenter of the gentrified Mission District. The desirable neighborhood commands high rents and is home to many of the City’s “must-try” eateries, hippest boutiques and coolest bars and clubs. Just a couple of blocks away, and parallel to Valencia, is Dolores Street. From the top of the hill, Dolores Park offers a spectacular downtown view and is a favorite local gathering spot, especially on sunny days.

r C ASTRO / T WIN PEAKS (SF Map: F - G13) The neighborhood known as Eureka Valley was named for one of the Twin Peaks (the other was called Noe). In the 1880s, a village of dairy farms and Victorian houses flourished as Irish, German and Scandinavian immigrant families homesteaded on the slopes of Twin Peaks. When the Castro Street segment of the Market Street Cable Railway opened in 1887, it became a desirable neighborhood referred to as “Little Downtown”. Following World War II the neighborhood’s Victorian homes attracted a new group of migrants, San Francisco’s gay population which was steadily rising after the war. “The Castro” we know today, an international symbol of gay pride, evolved from the activism of the ‘60s and ‘70s under civil-rights leaders like Harvey Milk. Milk’s former campaign headquarters is located at 575 Castro. Twin Peaks Bar, located at the intersection of Market and Castro, was the first gay bar in the city, and possibly the United States, with windows to visibly expose patrons to the public. The most recognizable attraction in the neighborhood is the Castro Theatre, a movie palace built in 1922. The Castro offers an eclectic mix of shopping and dining. Nearby Twin Peaks offers the best panoramic views of San Francisco. A vista area at the parking lot offers stunning views beyond the City to the Golden Gate Bridge and to the East Bay.

r CLIFF HOUSE/ OCEAN BEACH (SF Map: A7) Once a posh playground for San Francisco’s elite, former presidents and writers such as Mark Twain, the current Cliff House and Sutro Bath ruins overlook Ocean Beach and Seal Rocks. Ocean Beach is a three-mile stretch of Pacific coastline and a great spot to view a sunset.

r BAY BRIDGE/ TREASURE ISL AND (SF Map: R7)

The San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge opened in 1936 and links San Francisco with the East Bay. The new East self-anchored suspension span of the bridge is 2.2 miles and allows pedestrians and bicycles (currently ending short of Yerba Buena Island). A toll of $4-$6 is collected westbound where pedestrians are prohibited. The Bay Lights is the world’s largest LED light sculpture, now adorning the West span through 2015. r

The park is home to 50 species of birds, blacktailed deer, steelhead trout and hundreds of other “wild inhabitants.” U.S. Congressman William Kent and his wife Elizabeth had purchased the land to preserve its beauty and restful wilderness, and in 1908 they donated it to the federal governent to protect it from development. President Theodore Roosevelt declared Muir Woods the 10th national monument on January 9, 1908. Visitors are invited to explore the paved main trail which offers educational exhibits on the majestic redwood trees– some known to be 1,000 years old. There are six miles of walking trails and no cars are allowed in the redwood grove. Cool, shaded and moist year round, the park opens at 8am 365 days a year, though closing time varies seasonally. The park is. Daytime temperatures at Muir Woods average between 40 and 70 degrees Farenheit. Be prepared for rain if visiting the park from October to May. Eight miles north of San Francisco across the bay is the tiny bayside community of Sausalito. Arrival or departure by ferry is the best way to experience this Mediterranean-style community that is often compared to the French Riviera. Sausalito’s many attractions include Bridgeway Avenue, a quaint shopping district. After a day of touring, return to San Francisco by ferry. The Blue & Gold Fleet departs Sausalito for Pier 41.

Dine & Drink San Francisco’s love affair with food dates back the Gold Rush when exotic flavors sailed into the City from around the world. Italian fishermen sold a seafood stew known as cioppino. Miners headed to the gold country lined up early to purchase a tangy bread known as “sourdough”. The recipe for Irish Coffee was mastered here. Eat your way through San Francisco by exploring our ethnic diversity, you’ll discover culinary treasures in every price range. With close access to farm-fresh ingredients and proximity to the world’s top wine producing regions, it’s no wonder San Francisco is home to many of the culinary world’s Top Chefs.

The quaint towns of Yountville and St. Helena are known for both their wineries and their many fine restaurants. SonomaValley, with its perfect climate and fruitful soil, was the birth place of the California wine industry. Here missionaries planted the first crops of grapes used in making wine for the Holy Eucharist. Later, cuttings from Europe were imported and the first European varieties of wine were produced in America. Sonoma Valley will provide vistors with an introduction to a wide array of wines from Chardonnay to Pinot Noir and Syrah. Historic Sonoma Plaza is the largest plaza in the state. It’s surrounded by many historical adobe buildings, including the 25th and last California mission built, Mission San Francisco Solano. A picnic lunch on the quaint Plaza lawn, complete with wine, is one of the best ways to experience the heart of Sonoma. Healdsburg, Glen Ellen and Kenwood are small towns in the Sonoma Valley that are home to many awardwinning boutique wineries.

toric Cannery Row and the wharf area. At the end of the stretch is Monterey’s biggest attraction, the Monterey Bay Aquarium. The aquarium is home to more than 6,500 specimens of marine life indigenous to the Monterey Bay. The natural beauty of the Monterey Peninsula can also be explored at one of the area’s state beaches. Here tidepools, filled with anemones and starfish, are hidden among the rocks. 17 Mile Drive™ is the scenic route between Monterey and Carmel. The road winds along the rugged coast and curves through groves of Monterey Pine and Gowen Cypress trees past the famous Lone Cypress and Pebble Beach Golf Course. An admission to the route is charged but the scenic views are well worth the price. South of Monterey is Carmel, the town where actor Clint Eastwood was once mayor. The seaside scenery has a calming effect on this quaint village. Carmel resembles an 18th-century European village with narrow streets lined with antique shops, art galleries, boutiques and restaurants.

r YOSE MIT E Just a four-hour drive from San Francisco is one of the most beautiful spots on Earth, Yosemite National Park. So beautiful is Yosemite, that it was the first land ever set aside by the U.S. Congress for protection in 1864.

Nightlife & Entertainment San Francisco knows how to party!

The City comes alive after hours at swanky lounges, live music hotspots and high-energy nightclubs. A magnet for some of the greatest musicians of the Sixties, San Francisco has preserved a thriving music scene. If the arts are more your style, be sure to get tickets for our world-renowned ballet, symphony and opera. Many smash hit theater productions actually debuted in San Francisco before making their way to the Broadway stage. Whether you want to dance the night away, sip a cocktail with a view or be immersed in beatnik history BBB_BayCityGuide_2013-MAY.pdf 1 at a North Beach saloon, San Francisco’s nightlife is as diverse as our population.
