To be honest this is one of my favorites in the city in between all the skyscreapers, I took a book, lay down on the grass and admire the architecture around you.

This is a very nice park with plenty of open greenspace and an attractive waterfall feature. We know folks who work in the area and often take their lunch in the park. The park is very close to the Museum of Modern Art.

South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated
vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs
and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to
find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter
for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able
to do more than just business - museums, top quality
restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call
this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized
