After breakfast, we hopped back on to a bus and headed to the Palace of Fine Arts. I had seen it the previous day and had made a mental note to come back. This highly underrated 'hidden gem' is a must see. It's beautiful in a picture postcard way and the perfect place to lay out a blanket and read a book on a sunny day. It was a solid 4/5We went back to Pier 39 to see friends for lunch and spent the rest of the day lazing around on the open top tour bus, waving to pedestrians and taking photos.
But I made my way dryly to the Palace of Fine Arts and back to Fort Mason Center to drop the bike off.
Originally built for the famous 1915 Panama-Pacific Exposition to display the beautiful art works present, the eccentric Palace of Fine Arts is one of the best tourist attractions in the city of San Francisco. When illuminated fully, the building is a treat to the eye beholding its sublime beauty and presenting it in charmingly and seductively making it one of the must visit places in San Francisco.
It is a monument structure originally constructed for the 1915 Panama-Pacific Exposition in order to exhibit art works and till today, it remains as an icon for weddings too!
Gorgeous place to stop by! Nice for a stroll, it's in a residential area away from a lot of the businesses.
