  • Positioned roughly in the middle of Market St. (easily reachable by tram BART that "F") this imposing structure is the San Francisco City Hall. You can tour the facility internally as well (there is first a security check to overcome) by climbing upstairs (when we visited us there were several weddings). The area where the Civic Center (especially on the side of Market St.) is not exactly the best of San Francisco so if you can, avoid it in the evening (and avoid staying in the adjacent and degraded area of the Tenderloin) while instead of day not wher Reste have any kind of problem.

  • Stop by a view for the architecture. Inside and out you will find something interesting. The Plaza outside is open space to enjoy the sun and a hot dog if you are there around lunch time.  more »

  • THe civic center market is one of the most convenient markets in the city. Whenever I miss the Saturday Ferry building market, I go here. Get the kettlecorn!

Where to stay in San Francisco

From inexpensive hostels in quiet residential areas to high-end hotels near the city center, San Francisco has accommodations for every budget. Key consideration is what kind of neighborhood you want to stay in. You'll find luxury hotels in Union Square, which has prime shopping, is near theaters, and is on the cable car line. Many hotels are in the northeastern portion of the city, near the tourist-driven neighborhoods of Chinatown and Fisherman's Wharf, both easily explored on foot. To get away from the tourist crowds, consider the smaller inns and family-run bed and breakfasts in some of the city's more charming neighborhoods, such as Noe Valley or Pacific Heights. There are also boutique hotels scattered around town. Avoid staying in the Tenderloin. If you plan to have a car with you, ask about parking availability and fees. Parking is often difficult and expensive.
