Tilden Park Merry-Go-Round

Tilden Park Merry-Go-Round is located at Tilden Regional Park near Berkeley. It was built in the year 1911 C.E and is one of the few antique carousels left in the United States. It was constructed by the Herschel-Spillman Company of Tonawanda, New York and the carousel was used at amusement parks in San Bernardino, Ocean Beach, and Los Angeles. It was added to the National Registrar of Historic Places on September 29, 1976.

Lombard Street

This picturesque stretch of Lombard Street has eight tight turns on a single block. They twist at very acute angles, making for very slow going if you are in a car. Although, oddly enough, cars were the reason for designing the street this way back in 1922. The idea was that this design would make it easier for them to negotiate the steep 16% grade. The drive is usually bumper-to-bumper and in the summertime, there is almost always a line of cars waiting to take the drive down. That being said, going for a stroll along this landmark is a good option, especially when the hydrangeas along the sidewalk are in bloom.

Cupid's Span

Cupid's Span is located on the waterfront near the Bay Bridge in the magnificent Rincon Park on the Embarcadero. The structure is 60 feet high and is made up of painted fiber glass and stainless steel. Designed by two Swedish artists, Claes Oldenburg and Coosje Van Bruggen, this eye-catchy piece of work is a major attraction in the park.

Dutch Windmills

The Golden Gate Park windmill is located close to the Pacific Ocean and is ideally suited to use the strong ocean winds. Standing 75 feet tall the windmill was used to pump well water for irrigation purpose. The Queens Wilhelmina Tulip Gardens that surround the windmill adds to the beauty of the Golden Gate Park. It also makes it the most picturesque spot in the park and is also referred to as the North Windmill.

Tin How Temple

You reach Tin How Temple, the oldest Chinese temple in San Francisco (founded 1852) by climbing three flights of steep and narrow stairs in the heart of Chinatown. Once there, after catching your breath, your breath may very well be taken away again. The west wall of this tiny temple is an expanse of intricately carved gilded wood housing the shrine to Tin How, the goddess of Heaven. From the ceiling hang hundreds of paper lanterns, each bearing the name (in Chinese characters) of the person for whom it is intended to bring long life and happiness.

Wave Organ

This piece of artwork in the Marina also plays music. The sea-powered organ is a set of pipes that run along the waterfront and extend into the waters of the bay. The organ was built by scientists from the San Francisco Exploratorium. Place your ear against one of the pipes and listen to the music created by the sound of the waves. It's a unique way to enjoy nature and this is, perhaps, one of the few places in the world that you can.
