Make the effort to go and see some of the city buildings. You will not be disappointed at all, full of grandeur from a time gone by. Very well represented from a historical point of view. A must if you can make the time.

There is a open yard outside the city hall. From the city hall you can get a good view of the (out side) of the building. The carving and the design is very beautiful. Good to take phots as it is good the keep memories.

i did not expect but it was not bad idea to drop by the city hall. I think the decoration does not represent the actual architectural era of the building. 별 생각 없이 들어갔는데, 생각보다 크고 잘 꾸며 놔서 나쁘지 않았다. 다만, 너무 유럽스타일 복사해서...More

When my partner and I decided to get married, there was no question about where we’re gonna do it. There’s no other place like at City Hall. “I do.”

Good place to visit when in San Francisco. Historical place. Good historical construction. You can spend 30 minutes. Walking around.

Apparently a place to get married - we saw eight wedding parties there on a Thursday afternoon. Gorgeous architecture.

Civic Center
Civic Center is the seat of power for all things
government and performance-related in the city.
Although its streets are best walked during daytime,
numerous cultural gems are within close proximity to
one another. The symphony, opera, ballet, and jazz
center offer year round entertainment within the
shadow of the city’s Beaux-Arts crown jewel: the gold
tipped dome of City Hall.

From what I recall some of the weddings were being done in the judges chambers but others were going on all over. I guess the best thing to do is to check with the individual judge.
