There are a number of weddings here for good reason. This building is gorgeous. There are tours offered but mid week only. Well worth it.

We got married in San Francisco City Hall in July . The process was pretty quick. Make sure to get there early enough even with appointment. The former judge who was performing ceremony was very pleasant and funny. It was a great choice for us.

This is a beautiful building from the outside. We didn't get a chance to go inside, but maybe on another trip. It is always interesting to see something in person that you've seen on TV and in pictures.

We were able to tour the City Hall while on a Public Library sponsored free walking tour (City Guides). It is a beautiful building and the site of several weddings while we were there.

Be prepared to witness wedding photo ops in this stunning location. It is quite majestic here and during the holiday season it is wonderful. Lower level rooms offer SF historical information.

Who would guess that a City Hall would have exhibits! Two rooms, one offering a small selection of artwork, the other with half a large room of SF memorabilia, including keys to the city, historic photos, even a vault. Also, a must see is the...More

Civic Center
Civic Center is the seat of power for all things
government and performance-related in the city.
Although its streets are best walked during daytime,
numerous cultural gems are within close proximity to
one another. The symphony, opera, ballet, and jazz
center offer year round entertainment within the
shadow of the city’s Beaux-Arts crown jewel: the gold
tipped dome of City Hall.

I agree that 'free parking' and "San Francisco" do not belong in the same sentence, sadly......
