1 Day San Francisco City Sightseeing

 

Discover one of America's most picturesque and culturally diverse cities - San Francisco. 

From the humble origins of a small fishing village known as Yerba Buena, San Francisco grew rapidly due to the California gold rush starting in 1848. Devastated by the 1906 earthquake, San Francisco was rebuilt quickly. Long enjoying a bohemian reputation, the city became a counterculture magnet in the second half of the 20th century. From Art Deco to The Grateful Dead, and the center of the dot-com boom at the end of the century, there has never been a dull moment in this picturesque city by the Bay.

Location

From the humble origins of a small fishing village known as Yerba Buena, San Francisco grew rapidly due to the California gold rush starting in 1848. Devastated by the 1906 earthquake, San Francisco was rebuilt quickly.

Long enjoying a bohemian reputation, the city became a counterculture magnet in the second half of the 20th century. From Art Deco to The Grateful Dead, and the center of the dot-com boom at the end of the century, there has never been a dull moment in this picturesque City by the Bay.

We’ll spend a day discovering San Francisco’s many facets, from the urban (San Francisco Civic Center), to the natural (stunning views from the Twin Peaks of Eureka and Noe), to the iconic (the Golden Gate Bridge, Lombard street), and everything in between.

Civic Center

The Civic Center in SFis an area of a few blocks north of the intersection of Market ST and Van Ness Ave. that contains many of the city's largest government and cultural institutions. It has two large plazas (Civic Center Plaza and United Nations Plaza) and a number of buildings in classical architectural style. The Bill Graham Civic Auditorium (formerly the Exposition Auditorium) is one of the few remaining buildings from the 1915 Panama-Pacific International Expo.The UN Charter was signed in the War Memorial Veterans Building's Herbst Theatre  in 1945, leading to the creation of the UN. The San Francisco Civic Center was designated a  National Historic Landmark  in 1987, and listed in the National REgister of Historic Places  on October 10, 1978.

Lombard Street

Lombard Street is an east–west st.in SF, California. It is famous for having a steep, one-block section that consists of eight tight harpin turns .The name of the street is said to originate with lombard banking (an early type of pawn shop) which itself has ties to the Northern Italy region of Lombardy.

The Golden Gate Bridge

The Golden Gate Bridge is a technical masterpiece that can only be described in superlative terms. When the bridge was completed in 1937 it was the world's longest and tallest suspension bridge. But above all this masterly example of engineering is a magnificent monument set against a beautiful backdrop.

Also we’ll spend time in Golden Gate Park, and see the Palace of Fine Arts, as well as visit the neighborhoods around Fisherman’s Wharf, Market Street, and Chinatown to glimpse the many lifestyles that flourish throughout the city. Also take ride a San Francisco Boat Cruise* to see the wonderful sights of the Bay.

Palace of Fine Arts

Originally built for the 1915 Panama-Pacific Exposition, the Palace of the Fine Arts and the surrounding tranquil lagoon are one of the most photographed spots in the city. Some say it's because of the reflection in the lagoon that makes the site uniquely San Francisco, but don't underestimate the Merchant-Maybeck designed dome. It will take your breath away.
