Just blocks from the SF Museum of Modern Art (SF MOMA), next to the Contemporary Jewish Museum, and out the back door of the Marriott Marquis, are the Yerba Buena Gardens. These gardens offer a nice place to relax and soak in the greenery amidst...More

It's kind of nice on a sunny day, but a lot of homeless dudes hang out there and one can be overwhelmed by the scent of old pee wafting past they nostrils.

Nothing stands out but an urban open space with terrace and fountain for locals to hang out. The buildings sorounding the garden are gorgeous. Some photo shooting angles exist.

Coming from New Hampshire, it was great to get some sun in December. Sit on the benches just above MLK memorial and listen to the waterfall or relax on the lawn with a view of St. Patrick's Cathedral. Nice change of pace for some coffee...More

Nice park even on a rainy day. It's not huge, but good for a short break from the grey and concrete of the city.

Yerba Buena Gardens always amazed me when ever I ride by it or walk through this huge park. There's always children and adults, each doing their own things! Adults could be sleeping, children running around, adults chatting on the bench,. with the Martin Luther King...More

South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated
vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs
and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to
find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter
for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able
to do more than just business - museums, top quality
restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call
this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized
