Chock full of designer boutiques, art galleries, funky shoe stores, and great restaurants, it’s hard to imagine Hayes Valley once languished in the shadow of a major freeway. Its removal allowed for the creation of an attractive boulevard on Octavia Street with a community park at its center and dozens of trendy businesses to satisfy visitors looking for a stylish respite.
look on the internet before your visit to understand the history of what you will see, the Zen center history has largely influenced the founding of Esalen and many cultural figures, beginners are welcome and various lengths of stay can be arranged
Focuses on African American artwork versus the new history and culture Smithsonian which is more of a history and culture exhibit and while the art museum is a lot smaller then the history and culture it's very very good and definitely worth seeing if you have the time and it's right next to the Smithsonian Visitor Center so it's a...
Day or night, this spectacular sculpture is worth the detour to check out. The artist is Charles Gadeken and the piece has been at Burning Man prior to being placed where it is today. Squared sits in the epicenter of Hayes Valley, surrounded by a park and tables to sit.

Put Rich Table on your A list, hard to get...

Most authentic Brazilian steakhouse I’ve been to in the USA, all the way down to the beef ribs on the cart and the chicken hearts. We had about 45 min before repeats (I wouldn’t have minded a lower number here for the bacon wrapped tenderloin or the grilled pineapple
Drinks were great as well, yeah...

Great little hotel. Not fancy, but clean. Bed was comfy. Plenty of storage. Manager was extremely accommodating in getting us to San Jose airport. Only suggestion would be to get a room on the second floor ( no elevator). Floors are wood and we could hear every footstep and creak of the floor. Luckily the travelers above us were on...
