City Sights submarine museum and memorial is open to the public at Pier 45. PIER 39, a renovated cargo pier, is home port to the Blue & Gold Fleet and offers two levels of specialty shops and destination dining including Pier Restaurants and Hard Rock Cafe. Aquarium of the Bay, RocketBoat (seasonal) and Turbo Ride (a simulation theatre) are popular family attractions. The famous sea lions make their home on K-Dock (seasonal). Fisherman’s Wharf is famous for its Italian seafood restaurants with waterfront views. Vendors along Jefferson Street sell Dungeness crab from steaming cauldrons and clam chowder in a sourdough bread bowl, a signature San Francisco dish. Boudin Museum & Bakery exhibits an array of historic photos and artifacts that detail the history behind the original San Francisco Sourdough. Other activities at Fisherman’s Wharf include bicyle rentals and wine tasting.

r ALC ATRA Z (SF Map: L0) Alcatraz, Spanish for pelican, was named Isla de los Alcatraces after the birds that were the island’s only inhabitants. The island served as a military fortification in the 1850s and an incarceration facility for war prisoners during the Spanish-American War.

In 1934 Alcatraz became the infamous maximum-security prison for members of organized crime and high-risk convicts. Famous island residents have included “Machine Gun” Kelly, Al Capone and Robert “Birdman” Stroud. Although the island is only a mile 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 cold water. A federal penitentiary until 1963, “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.

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-mileper-hour winds and strong ocean currents sweeping through a deep rugged canyon below.

City Sights 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.

Headlands (the last exit in Marin County before crossing the bridge). 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.

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 when entering San Francisco.

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.

Vantage points from the San Francisco side include the Toll Plaza and Visitors Center (before crossing the bridge) and 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 postcard-perfect panorama seen here was captured from the Marin

r COIT TO WER (SF Map: N4) Atop Telegraph Hill is the 210foot 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.

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 beauti-


City Sights ful 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.

The Conservatory of Flowers, built in 1879 and beautifully restored in 2003, is modeled after London’s Kew Gardens, a glass Victorian displaying a paradise of flowers.

r THE HAIGHT (SF Map: E - F11)

The Japanese Tea Garden is a four-acre refuge of traditional Japanese architecture, koi ponds and bamboo trees.

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, residents, and its landmark place in history. The style and ingenuity that started in the sixties still rings true today.

r GOLDEN GATE PARK (SF Map: B - 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 park’s main attractions include two newlyrebuilt museums, the deYoung Museum and California Academy of Sciences which features a living roof and indoor rainforest.

r CHINATO WN (SF Map: M-N5-6) As you pass through the dragonadorned 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. 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, fortune cookie factories, garment factories, fresh produce markets, seafood and poultry shops, and many fine restaurants.

City Sights miniums. San Francisco’s eastern waterfront has emerged as one of the City’s most exciting new neighborhoods.

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 nineteenthcentury Victorian architecture were lost in the disaster.

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 and Saturday mornings.

Today some 14,000 Victorians have been preserved west of Van Ness Avenue in the Cow Hollow, Pacific Heights and Alamo Square districts. 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 condo-

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.

City Sights The “main street” of the Cow Hollow District is renowned for its preserved Victorians (and Edwardians) that now house art galleries, antique stores, boutiques, fine dining and world-class spas.

r C ASTRO (SF Map: F - G13) At the upper end of Market Street is the lively Castro District, an area that caters to its largely gay and lesbian population. The neighborhood, marked by the Castro Theatre marquee, has become a symbol of gay and lesbian pride throughout the world– somewhat of a gay Mecca. Visitors are always welcome in this friendly neighborhood which offers unique shopping and dining.

r CIVIC CENTER (SF Map: K9) Van Ness Avenue, the widest street in the City, is home to San Francisco’s city government. The gold- domed City Hall (extensively renovated in

1995-1999) was modeled after St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome. Tours of this “beaux-arts” building (the tallest dome in the U.S.) are available. San Francisco’s Main Library is located at the corner of Larkin and Grove Streets. The magnificent Asian Art Museum is one of the largest museums in the western world devoted exclusively to Asian art. The museum’s holdings include nearly 15,000 treasures spanning 6,000 years of history. Nearby Hayes Valley offers an eclectic mix of restaurants and boutiques.

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

SOUTH OF MARKET (SF Map: N8)

The area south of Market Street continues to be transformed from vacant warehouses on industrial lots into a fashionable neighborhood. The South of Market district (SoMa) has emerged as the art and nightlife center of San Francisco and offers a collection of restaurants, cafes, galleries, bars and nightclubs.

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.

Yerba Buena Gardens, the city’s urban redevelopment plan, includes the Center for the Arts, a visual and performing arts complex, 5.5 acres of gardens with an outdoor performance area, the Martin Luther King Memorial, the Zeum (an arts and technology center for children), an ice skating and bowling center, and San Francisco’s historic Charles Loof Carousel. The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) is now the second largest modern art museum in the United States.

r BIC YCLE RENTALS

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 Alcatraz. Today Alcatraz is one of San Francisco’s top tour attractions that often sells out.

Both Sausalito and Tiburon are easily accessible by bicycle via the Golden Gate Bridge. Bicyclists will encounter only gradual inclines followed by a downhill coast into Sausalito when riding from San Francisco. Rental companies will provide directions, maps, helmets and locks. After a day of touring, riders return to San Francisco by ferry. The Blue & Gold Fleet departs both Sausalito and Tiburon for Pier 41. Golden Gate Transit departs Sausalito only to the Ferry Building.

Eight miles north of San Francisco across the bay is the tiny bayside community of Sausalito. Arrival by ferry is the best way to experience this Mediterranean-style community that is often compared to the French Riviera.

r MUIR WOODS Muir Woods is located 17 miles northwest of San Francisco just off Highway 1. Cathedral and Bohemian Groves contain the largest Coast redwoods – up to 252 feet tall and 14 feet across. 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. The park is home to 50 species of birds, black-tailed deer, steelhead trout and hundreds of other “wild inhabitants.” $43 Muir Woods/Sausalito Tour Buy online and save on city tours, wine country, more!

Sausalito’s many attractions include Bridgeway Avenue, a quaint shopping district, the Bay Model, a scale model of the San Francisco Bay and Sacramento Delta, and the Bay Area Discovery Museum.

r TIBURON Just 20 minutes north of San Francisco is Tiburon, a charming town resembling an authentic New England seaport village. Tiburon’s Main Street offers unique shops, galleries, cafes and waterfront restaurants with unsurpassed views of San Francisco.
