The Palace of Fine Arts: A San Francisco Original

Classical, colossal and monumental, The Palace of Fine Arts has stood for 98 years in the Marina District of San Francisco. This Classical Greek and Roman-influenced outdoor structure is one of the more photographed sites in San Francisco, especially as it is reflected in its surrounding pond with swans, ducks, a walking trail and a park with benches.

Get a Real Feel for the City on Your Next Trip

Have you ever visited a big city and wondered what it would be like to live there? Being a tourist is a blast, and sure, hotels can be nice, but they do lack some of the comforts of a home – your own gourmet kitchen, private patios, board games and books, toys for the kids, and unique neighborhoods, to name a few.

San Francisco Chocolates to Melt Your Heart

There’s no shortage of superlatives to describe San Francisco, but the city’s chocolate tradition definitely deserves a spot at the top of the list. If your travel plans take you to the City by the Bay this Valentine’s Day, indulge yourself and your sweetie with a modern take on this 2,000-year-old treat. The Latin name for the cacao plant translates to the “food of the gods,” a fitting designation for such an ethereal flavor. Chocolate earned its place as a symbol of romance after Hernán Cortés brought it back to Spain following his conquest of the Aztec Empire, and with its reputation as an aphrodisiac, it remains one of the most popular Valentine’s Day gifts. read more »

A Love Affair With San Francisco Cable Cars

I was born and bred in the Bay Area, which means I grew up ignoring San Francisco’s cable cars. I don’t even remember my first and only time on the trolley. Even though riding the carousel at Pier 39 is an indelible childhood memory, the cable car is not. That’s right: Pier 39 trumps the cable car for as long as I can remember. Ouch. read more »
