Has visiting "The City by the Bay" always been on your travel bucket list? By booking one of the hotels near the Civic Center in San Francisco, Travelocity can help make this California travel dream a reality. Before you know it, you'll be taking cable cars up the hills of the city, visiting famous landmarks, and embarking on a bay-side adventure.
Just north of Market Street, the Civic Center's classical-style buildings and historical significance have wide appeal. Made up of two plazas, Civic Center Plaza and the United Nations Plaza, this area holds the Supreme Court of California as well as the grand City Hall building. The Charter of the United Nations was signed in 1945 at the War Memorial Opera House, and art and performance lovers flock to the Asian Art Museum (which houses art from more than 40 Asian countries) as well as the symphony hall and theaters. Travelocity's affordable packages to San Francisco allow you to visit the Civic Center all year long and never miss a show or exhibit. Once you've toured the Civic Center, hop aboard a cable car and ride up to Fisherman's Wharf to enjoy fresh seafood, shopping, and sea lion viewing on PIER 39. Next, wander down the Embarcadero to the Ferry Building Marketplace. Sit outside at one of the cafes and people watch, or pick up some gourmet shop offerings. Not far from the hotels close to the San Francisco Civic Center is Golden Gate Park. A frequent host to concerts and other events, the park also features the Japanese Tea Garden, trails, lakes, and museums. If you are traveling with kids, they'll clamor to visit the park's Steinhart Aquarium. Of course, hotels in San Francisco near the Civic Center are also near the famous Golden Gate Bridge and the boat launch for tours of Alcatraz prison.
