Golden Gate Park

Where San Francisco - - Editor's Itinerary - Get go­ing! Ex­plore the city at where­trav­eler.com.

Get a feel for the park just walk­ing or bik­ing along John F. Kennedy Drive on the eastern side. First you'll spot the gor­geous Con­ser­va­tory of Flow­ers, a Vic­to­rian struc­ture con­tain­ing a col­lec­tion of ex­otic plants. Con­tinue to Mu­sic Con­course, a large oval plaza with foun­tains and pol­larded trees that's bor­dered by the stun­ning cop­per de Young Mu­seum and the Cal­i­for­nia Academy of Sciences, rec­og­niz­able by its hill-in­spired liv­ing roof. It's free to go up the Ha­mon Ob­ser­va­tion Tower in the de Young and ad­mire the view of the city, and if you're a speedy walker, you can take a de­tour to the ro­man­tic Shake­speare Gar­den.
