One hundred and fifty years ago, this 1000-acre park was a windswept sand dune. To this day, its autumnal music festival, Outsidelands, is an homage to its former moniker. These days, you'll find the same serenity with a myriad of attractions -- art museums, a Japanese tea garden, a Shakespeare garden, even a buffalo paddock. Or, get active -- hike, ride horseback, learn archery or feed ducks at any one of three ponds. What Central Park is to New York, Golden Gate Park is to San Francisco. Stretching from the Panhandle to Ocean Beach, Golden Gate Park is over 1,000 acres of gardens, lakes, and cultural institutions. The deYoung art museum and family-friendly Academy of Sciences can be found near the Japanese Tea Garden, an elaborate maze of sculpted landscape leading up to a tea house. Rent a paddleboat at Stow Lake, or watch members of the San Francisco Model Yacht Club race their handmade boats around Spreckels Lake. While there are a number of homeless encampments throughout the grounds, it doesn't take away from the park's beauty. Just look at the Conservatory of Flowers, the blooming plantlife at the Botanicals Gardens, and the ocean views from the top floor of Beach Chalet.

Holiday Inn San Francisco - Golden Gateway, an IHG Hotel
[San Francisco | Attractions] I went to San Francisco three times and told you how to be fun.
A lot of people may have been to travel to get a card, and punching will not go again, but in my mind, San Francisco is really a place to go.
In addition to the famous Golden Gate Bridge, Fisherman's Wharf, and Nine Quhua Street, where else can I go? Here are the others.
Japanese Gate Garden (Golden Gate Park)
Golden Gate Park is free, Japanese tea garden is a fee, this is a small courtyard with more than 100 years of history, super Beauty, the charge seems to be 12
Twin Peaks overlooking the night scenes of San Francisco, blowing the cool breeze, really comfortable
It is a sacred place recognized by gays around the world, the rainbow flag can be seen everywhere, and this area is a relatively safe area of San Francisco
Union Square (Union Square)
Union Square is located in the heart of San Francisco. There are many famous shopping malls and specialty stores around, such as Macy's, Saks Fifth Avenue.
Bathing for a few days in California sunshine, its rare to be cloudy. I must have pumped my brain before I ran to Golden Gate Park. Not only did I have no blue sky to make a background, but I was frozen and half dead. At night, I was laughed at by someone. San Francisco is lower than Silicon Valley all the year round. About 10 degrees, you actually don't know?" Ok, okay! I know it now and in my life.
