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 ALC ATRA Z

City Sights (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 escapeproof 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. 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. 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 salt-water 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 maximum-security 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.

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.

City Sights

The color of the bridge, known as “International Orange”, was chosen because it blends well with the bridge’s natural surroundings and provides enhanced visibility to passing ships. It’s a popular misconception that the bridge is painted “end-to-end” each year. In 1965, due to advancing corrosion, a program to remove the original lead-based paint from the bridge began. The bridge requires routine maintenance on an ongoing basis by a staff of 28 painters and 13 ironworkers. US-manufactured steel was used to build the bridge and shipped through the Panama Canal to San Francisco. 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 collected electronically at the toll plaza when entering San Francisco (no cash payment). Electronic options include FasTrack® and pay-byplate (toll invoice). A toll invoice is mailed to the registered owner of the vehicle. Vantage points from the San Francisco side include the Toll Plaza and Visitors Center (before crossing the bridge), 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. A postcard-perfect panorama of the skyline can also be seen from the Marin Headlands (the last exit in Marin County).

r F LINE 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, San Francisco’s first street car (1912) and “The Street Car Named Desire” acquired from New Orleans in exchange for a California Street cable car. 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.

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. Throughout the 1890s, eight transit companies operated 600 cars which covered 21 cable car routes and a total of 52.8 miles. Cable cars remained the primary mode of transportation until the 1906 earthquake and the fires that destroyed most of the cable car system. 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 COIT TO WER

(SF Map: N4)

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. The view from atop the east side of the tower spans 360 degrees. Inside, you’ll find a history museum and murals that depict working life in 1930s California.

r THE HAIGHT

(SF Map: E-F11)

The history of the Haight is as colorful as the Victorian architecture that lines the streets of this neighborhood. The Haight Ashbury community is universally recognized for its creativity and diversity expressed by the hybrid mixture of shops and restaurants, residents and its landmark place in history as the birthplace of counter culture. The style and ingenuity that started in the sixties still rings true today.


City Sights 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. Descent for the one-block brick paved section of Lombard Street begins at Hyde Street and ends at Leavenworth. The speed limit is 5mph. Tour buses and taxis are restricted. The best place for a photo is from Leavenworth Street looking up.

r MARINA DISTRIC T

The waterfront of the Marina is anchored by the majestic Golden Gate Bridge. Locals use Crissy Field and the Marina Green as their front lawn and beach, where acres of grassy areas lead to the yacht harbor

with stunning close up views of the famous suspension bridge and Alcatraz Island. Join cyclists, joggers, dog-walkers and kite-flyers for a breathtaking walk along the northern waterfront. Perhaps San Francisco has no spot more romantic than the Palace of Fine Arts designed by Berkeley architect Bernard Maybeck. Reflected in a pretty lagoon populated with swans and ducks, the monument was part of the 1915 Panama-Pacific International Exhibition built to celebrate the opening of the canal and re-launch San Francisco after the 1906 earthquake. The only surviving remnant of the event is this single palace.

r VIC TORIANS

(SF Map: G2)

19

(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.

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 a postcard and movie scene. Capture the view from the center of the park on the edge of Alamo Square at Steiner and Hayes streets (park temporarily closed for repair).

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.

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. Most local Chinese commerce remains along Stockton Street where visitors will find traditional herb pharmacies, temples, produce and seafood markets and many fine restaurants. The fortune cookie factory located on Ross Alley is a popular stop on many walking tours of Chinatown.

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. The Beat Generation of the 1950s is rooted in this eclectic San Francisco neighborhood. Upper Grant Avenue maintains the flavor of its Bohemian past. Poet Lawrence Ferlinghetti’s City Lights at 261 Columbus Avenue, the first paperback bookstore in the country and Allen Ginsberg’s publisher, was at the movement’s center. Facing City Lights on Jack Kerouac Place is Vesuvio, a saloon worth a visit for its Beat Generation memorabilia. It’s the restaurants 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. At the heart of North Beach is Washington Square, a grassy piazza where the Church of Saints Peter & Paul is located.

r GOLDEN GATE PARK

(SF Map: A-D9-11)

Golden Gate Park is among the world’s greatest urban parks. Approximately three miles long and a half mile wide (1,017 acres), this treasure is covered with grassy meadows, wooded bike trails, secluded lakes, open groves and gardens. The Conservatory of Flowers, built in 1879 and modeled after London’s Kew Gardens, is a glass Victorian displaying a paradise of flowers. At Stow Lake, paddle and row boats can be rented for a trip around the lake. The park’s main attractions include two newlyrebuilt museums, the de Young Museum and California Academy of Sciences which features a living roof and indoor rainforest. The Japanese Tea Garden is a four-acre refuge of traditional Japanese architecture, koi ponds and bamboo trees.

r PRESIDIO (SF Map: C-E1-4) The Presidio served as a military station for more than 200 years. Union regiments trained here during the Civil War. The Presidio is part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. Approximately 1,600 acres of parks and beaches are located in this northwest corner of the City. Located at the Main Post, the Walt Disney Family Museum tells the fascinating and inspiring story of Walt Disney through more than 1,000 artifacts.


City Sights r MISSION DISTRIC T

(SF Map: H - K13)

Immerse yourself in the rich cultural traditions of Mexico and Latin America on Mission Street, where visitors can enjoy lavish murals, savory foods and a dazzling range of traditional and avant-garde art. 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 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 DISTRIC T

(SF Map: F - G13)

The Castro, an international symbol of gay pride, is a thriving neighborhood of restored Victorian homes, bars, shops and restaurants. Community activism, born in the ‘60s and ‘70s under gay-rights leaders such as Harvey Milk, remains strong. Milk’s former

21

campaign headquarters is located at 575 Castro. The most recognizable attraction in the neighborhood is the Castro Theatre, a movie palace built in 1922.

r CLIFF HOUSE/OCEAN BEACH (SF Map: A7) In 1881 the Cliff House was a posh playground for San Francisco’s elite, former presidents and writers such as Mark Twain. The current Cliff House overlooks Ocean Beach and Seal Rocks. North of the Cliff House are the remains of the Sutro Baths, once the world’s largest swimming pool. Seven indoor pools were housed here until the structure burned in 1960.

r T WIN PEAKS

(SF Map: F-G13)

Near the geographical center of San Francisco’s 49 square miles, two hills known as Twin Peaks rise 925 feet, offering one of the city’s best views. A vista area at the parking lot offers stunning views beyond the City to the Golden Gate Bridge and to the East Bay. r

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.

Wine Country & Beyond While the City is often shrouded in fog on a summer day, just 50 miles north you’ll find the warmth and sunshine

of the Napa & Sonoma Valley. With views as captivating as its varietals, the Wine Country features sprawling vineyards and boutique wineries. Guided wine tours depart daily from San Francisco and include wine tasting fees allowing you the luxury of drinking without driving. Take a trip south of the City to visit the quaint coastal towns of Monterey and Carmel or venture east to experience the majesty of Yosemite National Park. Be sure to plan at least one of these day trips to make your San Francisco experience complete!

r NAPA & SONOMA The Napa Valley, a rich and fertile stretch of valley a little over 35 miles in length, is home to almost 300 wineries, most of which line Highway 29. Many of the large wineries offer guided tours of their facilities including the underground limestone caves and storage casks. There is typically a nominal tasting fee at most wineries ($5-$20 per person). This fee often includes a souvenir glass and the opportunity to taste three to six wines. Some wineries will credit tasting fees towards your purchase of wine. The quaint towns of Yountville and St. Helena are known for both their wineries and their many fine

restaurants. Both offer a charming downtown for shopping, dining and strolling. Literary legend and one-time Bay Area resident, Jack London created one of the most memorable images of the Sonoma Valley from an Indian fable. He called it the Valley of the Moons as the moon appears to rise several times over succeeding peaks in the Valley. Healdsburg, Glen Ellen and Kenwood are small towns in the Sonoma Valley that are home to many award-winning boutique wineries. With its mild sunny climate and fertile soil, Sonoma was the perfect setting for the missionaries to plant the first crops of grapes used in making wine for the Holy Eucharist. Later, Count Agoston Haraszthy imported cuttings from Europe and produced the first European varieties in America.

r MONTERE Y & C ARMEL With its wild, rocky coastline and brick cannery buildings, Monterey still maintains much of the flavor of John Steinbeck’s Cannery Row. Today boutiques, restaurants and antique stores line historic 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 tide pools, 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 an 18th-century European-style village where narrow streets are lined with antique shops, galleries and boutiques. The seaside scenery has a calming effect on this quaint village which has long inspired artists and attracted celebrities.

Educational exhibits on the majestic redwood trees and the park’s wildlife are located along the trail. Park rangers offer free ecology tours at intervals throughout the day.

MUIR WOODS

The park opens at 8am 365 days a year, though closing time varies seasonally

Muir Woods National Monument is made up of over 560 acres of redwood forest. Many of the spectacular Sequoia sempervirens in this mature growth forest, only 12 miles from downtown San Francisco, are more than 1,000 years old. Cathedral and Bohemian Groves contain the largest Coast redwoods – up to 252 feet tall and 14 feet across. Muir Woods attracts 900,000 visitors from around the globe each year. Organized bus tours are available daily from San Francisco. Once inside the park guests are free to explore at their own pace on well-marked walking trails. Visitors are invited to explore the paved main trail path which is one-half mile and easily accessible to all.

More ambitious hikers can follow signs to longer intermediate trails. There are six miles of walking trails and no cars are allowed in the redwood grove. Keep an eye and ear out for possible sightings of Northern spotted owls, jays, bats, black-tailed deer, Coho salmon, butterflies and more wildlife among the animal community inside a sun-dappled canopy created by the towering redwoods.

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 United States Congress for protection in 1890. The granite building blocks of the Sierra Nevada, El Capitan, Cathedral Rock, Three Brothers, Royal Arches, Half Dome and Clouds Rest are among the nation’s most spectacular treasures. Nowhere else in the world are there as many big falls in such a small area including the 2,425-foot Yosemite Falls, the highest fall in North America.

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 at a North Beach saloon, San Francisco’s nightlife is as diverse as our population.
