When you’re ready to explore the area, make your first stop the Yerba Buena Gardens.
Part urban nature centre, part museum row, this spot in town is a city favourite. Feel free to stretch out on the soft grass in the sunlight or duck into any of the museums if the weather goes sour. The park is home to the Children’s Creativity Museum, Cartoon Art Museum, and the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts. If you’re in SoMa during baseball season, don’t miss a San Francisco Giants game. The ballpark is often considered one of the most attractive in the country, as homeruns splash down into McCovey Cove. You can even rent a boat and float in the bay, waiting for a homerun ball to fly into the waters. If you prefer paint splashes over sea mist, make your way to CounterPULSE. This funky theatre is a hot spot of art and activism, with eclectic art and dance performances throughout the year.
