Palace of Fine Arts(approx.20mins)
The monumental structure originally constructed for the 1915 Panama-Pacific Exposition in order to exhibit works of art presented there.One of only a few surviving structures from the Exposition,it is still situated on its original site.It was rebuilt in 1965,and renovation of the lagoon,walkways,and a seismic retrofit were completed in early 2009.In addition to hosting art exhibitions,it remains a popular attraction for tourists and locals and is a favorite location for weddings and wedding party photographs for couples throughout the San Francisco Bay Area and such an icon that a miniature replica of it was built in Disney's California Adventure in Anaheim.
Lombard Street is an east–west street in San Francisco,California that is famous for a steep,one-block section with eight hairpin turns.Stretching from The Presidio east to The Embarcadero(with a gap on Telegraph Hill),most of the street's western segment is a major thoroughfare designated as part of U.S.Route 101.The famous one-block section,claimed as"the most crooked street in the world",is located along the eastern segment in the Russian Hill neighborhood.The street was named after Lombard Street in Philadelphia by San Francisco surveyor Jasper O'Farrell.
Golden Gate Bridge(approx.30mins)
The Golden Gate Bridge is a suspension bridge that crosses over the San Francisco Bay,going from San Francisco to Marin County,in the U.S.state of California.It was opened for use in 1937.When the bridge was finished,its length of 9,266 ft(2824 m)made it the longest bridge in the world.Now there are several bridges that are longer,but for many people,it is still one of the most beautiful bridges in the world.
The Twin Peaks are two prominent hills with an elevation of about 925 feet(282 m)located near the geographic center of San Francisco,California.Only 928 foot(283 m)Mount Davidson is higher within the city.You can enjoy the city view of San Francisco from the top of hill.
The Chinatown centered on Grant Avenue and Stockton Street in San Francisco,California,is the oldest Chinatown in North America and the largest Chinese enclave outside Asia.It is the oldest of the four notable Chinatowns in the city.Since its establishment in 1848,it has been highly important and influential in the history and culture of ethnic Chinese immigrants in North America.Chinatown is an enclave that continues to retain its own customs,languages,places of worship,social clubs,and identity.There are two hospitals,numerous parks and squares,a post office,and other infrastructure.While recent immigrants and the elderly choose to live here because of the availability of affordable housing and their familiarity with the culture,the place is also a major tourist attraction,drawing more visitors annually than the Golden Gate Bridge.
