And we want you to love it too. So our staff at Hotel G San Francisco sat down and put together a list of quintessential San Francisco experiences. Stuff you don’t want to miss. So head out. Have fun. Let us know what you think.
Three Bay Area classics you must experience while staying at HOTEL G SAN FRANCISCO. First off, we never get tired of driving down Lombard Street. It’s a crazy crooked street and most definitely worth checking out. Next, ride the cable car. Cliché? Sure. But even though it’s a cliché, it’s still awesome. After that, head to Coit Tower, where you get an incredible 360-degree view of the city. See why we think it’s the most beautiful city in the world. Take someone you love with you.
Moscone Convention Center
As the city’s premier meeting and exhibition facility, Moscone Center echoes San Francisco’s inimitable sense of style in the drama of its design and its undeniable sense of place.
The Ferry Building
Okay, local food movements seem to be, um, sprouting up everywhere, but the Ferry Building near our luxury San Francisco hotel hosts an incredible marketplace that is the place to go if you want to be in on the San Francisco culinary scene. Tons of local artisans with homemade cheeses, cured meats, herbs, pastry and spices. The farmers market is renowned as being one of the best in the US. Massively impressive.
Established in 1965, American Conservatory Theater is a Tony Award–winning theater and training institution whose work is energized and informed by a profound commitment to developing the next generation of theater artists. A.C.T. is the largest theater company in the San Francisco Bay Area and employs more than 800 people each season, from teachers and artists to technicians and administrative staff. During the past four decades, more than 300 A.C.T. productions have been seen by close to 7 million playgoers in the company’s magnificent Beaux Arts–style theater located in the heart of San Francisco’s Union Square theater district.
Off the Grid
Yum. Yum. Off the Grid is a series of traveling food trucks that hook up at 23 weekly markets. Think of it as a roaming food extravaganza. The idea: a shared food experience as a way to connect communities. So share a Bao. Sample a chocolate taco. Try the Huli Huli Chicken or Kalua Pork and get transported to Hawaii. (Well, not, literally. But the food’s that good.) And you’re not going to find anything like it in any restaurant, so chow down while visiting our San Francisco design hotel.
Founded by Florence and Elias Katz in 1983, Creativity Explored in San Francisco is currently celebrating 31 years of assisting artists with developmental disabilities to pursue both their artistic passion and their quest to become working artists. Creativity Explored has two locations: the main gallery and studio in San Francisco’s Mission District, and a second studio in nearby Potrero Hill. Gallery programming now includes six exhibitions per year, with more than 15,000 people visiting the gallery and studio annually.
Golden Gate Park
Here’s the lowdown. Golden Gate Park is one of the most beautiful, amazing parks you’ve ever seen. Hands down. Gardens in every flavor: the Japanese Tea Garden, the Botanical Garden, the Rose Garden, Tulip Gardens. The DeYoung Museum. You could spend days at the California Academy of Sciences. And if you’re traveling with kids to our Union Square hotel, Golden Gate Park is perfect for families. Incredible. Amazing. Must go.
