This is a popular wedding location, not as famous as Vegas but close. The building is actually a beautiful one and it is worth your time if you are in the city.

Hmm...it's big, many people get married inside, probably interesting from historical or architectural point of view. I am glad the asian art museum was close and my main reason to visit the area.

I wanted to see the City Hall so badly, to have a look where Harvey Milk worked. The buildng is majestic but the area all around...oh boy. I was really scared, it was quite impossible to walk around...alcoholic and drug addicted everywhere.

The City Hall is really an amazing building, take the time to go inside to see it. The doom is a great view, also take the grand staircase to the second floor.

I've gone to City Hall many times and for many reasons and it feels good and grand every time! It's a beautiful building, nicely restored and maintained, with a rich and storied history.

Neighborhood Profile
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.
