 Lombard Street
The "Crookedest Street in the World" may be only a block in length but it is quite lovely. Between Hyde and Leavenworth streets, Lombard makes eight switchbacks along a brick pathway. Although the view coming down is lovely but you better keep an eye on the road. You wouldn't be the first to have lost a turn signal to the garden borders along the edge of the narrow road. For those who prefer to view than drive, steps follow the path of the vehicles along either side of the road safely behind the garden wall.


 San Francisco Museum of Modern Art
Works of Matisse, O'Keeffe, Picasso, and other greats as well as an impressive photographic collection. Can find an adequate lunch at the cafe, which is accessible from the street 151 3rd St. San Francisco, CA 94103
(415)357-4000

 Union Square
Since the days of the gold rush, this has been the heart of San Francisco commercial district. Street entertainers, statuary, shops, dining and various other vendors welcome you. Double-decker busses and cable cars are eager to take you from your hotel, to the Square. Union Square was locally known as Little St. Francis after the 1906 earthquake and fire because the residents of the nearby St. Francis Hotel sought refuge from temporary shelters that were erected here.
