Popular Attractions in San Francisco

An experienced attorney, Geoffrey “Geoff” Scovil practices habeas corpus law out of his own solo office in Albuquerque, New Mexico. When not busy with his duties as an attorney, Geoff Scovil enjoys traveling both around the world and domestically, and he has visited such US cities as Los Angeles and San Francisco.

Recognized for its unique architecture and scenery, San Francisco has a wide range of attractions that draw in a variety of visitors from around the world. Some of the city’s most popular attractions include:

Palace of Fine Arts: Featuring a classical European-style lagoon and Roman rotunda, the Palace of Fine Arts is a remnant from the 1915 World’s Fair. It regularly serves as the site of various cultural and musical events, but many individuals enjoy simply relaxing on the grounds.

California Academy of Sciences: Located in Golden Gate Park, the California Academy of Sciences features a living roof covered in native plants and hilly terrain. Home to a natural history museum and aquarium, among many other attractions, it is often regarded as an architectural marvel.

Ghirardelli Square: Surrounded by a host of galleries, shops, and restaurants, Ghirardelli Square draws in everyone from shoppers to entertainment seekers. Built within a restored factory that formerly housed a chocolate company, the square was the first in a series of projects that sought to bring life back to the abandoned complex.

Chinatown: Although many cities have their own Chinatown, San Francisco’s is both the largest outside of Asia and the oldest in North America. Visitors can find everything from temples and workshops to tea houses and antique shops, and they can attend elaborate Chinese New Year celebrations.
