Most visitors are surprised by the sheer size of Golden Gate Park, which is 20% larger than New York City’s Central Park - and is the city’s lungs. Where else can you see great art, ride a carousel, row a boat, observe American bison, stand in a Chinese pavilion, smell exotic flowers, and sip Japanese tea all in one day? Spending a day in Golden Gate Park is easy, but given all the options, choosing what to do can be difficult!

Love modern art? Then this is mecca! The best of the best. The Nation's largest collection (sorry NYC!) Cost is $25, but worth it. If you have a BofA card, inquire on SF MOMA's website as some weekends are free to cardholders.

“At a time when America’s major orchestras are struggling to define their missions and maintain audiences, the San Francisco Symphony under Michael Tilson Thomas is an exception.” — The New York Times. Since its beginning in 1911, the San Francisco Symphony has been known for innovative programs that offer a spectrum of traditional repertory and new music. Today, the Orchestra’s artistic vitality, recordings, and groundbreaking multimedia educational projects carry its impact throughout American musical life.

Here's the deal with the MOIC: you have to be in it for the spectacle. It's not an art museum. It's not the exploratorium. The audience is children and people who want Instagram photos. You have to go in with that expectation. If you do, you'll enjoy it.

On the cutting edge of ethical fashion, everyone's favorite basics brand has made the leap from the interwebs with a shiny new flagship store on Valencia Corridor. So you're wondering, what's the big deal about this new store on Valencia Street? For starters, it's bigger. And obviously better, with offerings you can't even find in New York's Prince Street shop. The space is as you'd probably expect: minimalist and pleasant, with the Everlane aesthetic is apparent in thoughtful design elements like tiered geometric shelving, fair wood countertops, and sunshine pouring through lovely round skylights in every fitting room.

Taquilla Bar next to Tacolicious. Though the cocktail menu is quite short at this Mission spot attached to the restaurant Tacolicious, agave fans will be floored by the list of more than 300 tequilas and mescal served by the glass or carafe; a small selection of botanas (snacks) is another reason to vie for one of a few barstools in the narrow sliver of a space, where an arty arrangement of mason jars tiling the ceiling creates a warm glow.

If there's any area of San Francisco that evokes images of the long-gone '60s hippie culture, the Haight is it. Fragments of that flower-power, incense-burning, acid-dropping, tie-dye-wearing, peace-and-love-vibing era. But save for a few hippie relics, the Haight today is a whole new scene. Exclusive boutiques, high-end vintage clothing shops, secondhand stores, Internet cafés and hip restaurants have all settled in. Neo-punks, club kids, fashionistas, tourists and neighbourhood folks are equally at home here.

Along the streets, brightly colored rainbow banners flutter from lamp posts and flagpoles, welcoming visitors to San Francisco’s Castro District. The historic center of the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, transgender)community reflects a vibrant neighborhood popular with young families, tech workers, an artist community and filled with popular boutiques, bars and restaurants attracting a wide circle of patrons. The Castro District, then known as Eureka Valley, was an immigrant working-class neighborhood heavily settled by Scandinavians through the 1920s, followed by the Irish. It gained popularity with San Francisco’s gay community at the time Haight Ashbury flourished around another element of America’s counterculture during the 1967 Summer of Love. The name Castro was adopted from the landmark art deco movie house of that name. More can be learned at the GLBT History Museum on 18th Street near Castro Street, first of its kind in the nation.
