Obviously one of the most iconic bridges in the US . You can see this from Crissy Field or Marina Green. You can bike across this too - but be prepared for a workout!

Enjoy fancy lattes and women in yoga pants in this affluent, residential neighborhood with well trimmed hedges and colorful flower window boxes. The neighborhood actually has an impressive marina, which is home to a couple of prestigious yacht clubs. Marina Green, an 8 block stretch of grass running along the edge of the bay, is a favorite place for jogging, strolling, picnicking, and kite flying.

The "crookedest street in the world": The best time to see and photograph the street from the bottom (from Leavenworth St) is in the morning because Lombard Street runs east-west and slopes eastward. The best time to see and photograph the view from the top (from Hyde St) is in the afternoon. At night there are great views of Telegraph Hill and Coit Tower. The wild parrots of Telegraph Hill frequently fly over head in the morning.

The main road along Grant Ave is a tourist trap, but there are some great restaurants and shops along side streets. Stockton Street is where most locals do their shopping for groceries; be sure to sample some of the dim sum and other specialties offered in the many bustling shops.

Constantly bustling -- people use the square mostly as a space to relax and soak up a bit of sun, and to wallow in the atmosphere created by the surrounding cable cars, hotels and shoppers. Great for people watching! There is free wi-fi provided by the city. Look under the leaves of the greenery in the planters, and you'll find a few power outlets for your laptop.
