Hey Mr. AMG GUY!!!

Boy, you're really know how to put the "fun" in AMG.  What another pleasant surprise.

For those of you who don't know,The Palace of Fine Arts was built for the 1915 Panama-Pacific International Exposition. The Expositon honored the 400th anniversary of the discovery of the Pacific Ocean,the completion of the Panama Canal and the celebration of San Francisco's own resurrection after the shattering earthquake and fire of 1906.  The Palace is the only remaining building left from the Exposition and built in a beautiful Greco-Roman style.

It is one of perfect photo-ops scattrered around SF. 

By the way, remember the last major SF earthquake, back in 1989?  The videos and pictures that showed the city burning?  All that was in the "Marina" district, just blocks from the Exploratorium.  It all happened in The Marina because the Marina is built on land fill that was brought in for the 1915 Exposition.  Because the houses are not built on solid bedrock, their foundations started bouncing up and down breaking open the gas lines and bringing on the fires.  It's called liquifaction.

Anyway, make sure you look at the AMG Coordinator's Link to the Exploratorium.  Not only it it an interesting stop, but it's right next to the Golden Gate Bridge and the Presidio, two other photo ops you'll want to put on your itinerary.

Thanks, Dennis. This is quite a savings over the usual $14 admission.

The Exploratorium is a fascinating place, and the area around it is beautiful. It's a favorite place for wedding party pictures.

The Exploratorium is four miles from Golden Gate Park. It's a scenic but major uphill/downhill trek--not walkable except for the very athletic. The trip on Muni requires two buses and about a 7-block walk on either end. It's possible to do it with one bus (the #43-Masonic) if you walk an extra half-mile or so.

To get back to the hotel from the Exploratorium, you can take the #30-Stockton bus to within a couple of blocks of the hotel.

Just wanted to let people know so that they can pace their activities.

When you arrive at the Powell Street BART station from the airport, take the Hallidie Plaza exit, and look for the tourist office to the left of the escalator that takes you to street level. Ask for a map of the Muni system. It will help you navigate the city with your Muni pass. The tourist office also has street maps of San Francisco, but they're not as good as the AAA street map of the city.

I was also advised that the #28 bus can be taken from Golden Gate Park the to the Exploratorium.  There's a Muni Stop by the De Young Museum on the Park Presidio By-Pass and has a drop off just in front of the Palace of Fine Arts. 

Muni Passes and city maps will be supplied in your welcome bag. 

To get a head start in your planning, here's a link to the Muni system...http://transit.511.org/providers/maps/SF_411200714805.pdf

Oops! I missed that #28 bus on my Muni map. It looks like it takes a scenic winding route from the De Young Museum through the Presidio. That makes the trip easier than I had thought.

If you have time, stop off at the De Young Museum and take the elevator to the observatory at the top of the tower. The view is beautiful. Although there's an admission charge to the museum galleries, admission to the tower observatory is free. The museum also has a good cafe.

The De Young is a wonderful museum with very striking architecture. It opened a couple of years ago, replacing an older building that did not meet earthquake safety standards. The museum has an outstanding collection of American art. It's also next to the Japanese Tea Garden and close to a very beautiful arboretum, all within Golden Gate Park. The landmark Conservatory of Flowers is also very close.

There are a lot of great things to see and do in San Francisco. I wish people had the luxury of spending more time in the city.

I don't think 5 days will do San Francisco justice. There is so much to see & do! Are those Giant California Redwood trees anywhere near S.F?

I had some info on Muir Woods here, but decided to put it in a separate thread.
