While at Haight Ashbury, you'll be transported back to the 'Summer of Love,' thanks to the area's vibrant murals and hippie-themed fine art work.

You'll get a bird's-eye view of the bridge, Alcatraz Island, and the San Francisco skyline from an open-top bus ride. Take a selfie at North Vista Point, or walk across the bridge to get a bird's-eye view of the bay.
The Civic Center is an excellent place to catch a glimpse of San Francisco's City Hall, the Opera House, and Symphony Hall. Explore one of the world's largest urban parks, Golden Gate Park.
