City Hall and the Civic Center

Neighborhood: City Hall/ Civic Center

Description

After the original City Hall perished in the 1906 earthquake, San Francisco had a chance to think bigger the second time around. Civic Center is a campus that houses some of the city’s most important governmental and cultural institutions.

You’ll see — and be swept away by — the beautiful architecture, including imposing structures like City Hall, the Asian Art Museum, the War Memorial Opera House and the State Building.

Minimal walking — but maximum awe.
