“Golden Gate Park”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2013

The park is large with a lot to see. Especially enjoyed the Japanese gardens. There is a large museum there and many other attractions. I wish we would have had more time as the botanical Gardens looked lovely.

“Beautiful and full of things to see and do”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2013

We took the bus here and walked through the beautiful rose gardens on the way to the Japanese Tea Gardens and the deYoung museum. All great, but sorry we didn't know to spend the day in the Calif Academy of Science! Wow, what a place. $30 entrance fee (discounts are available) but we already paid for and spent a lot of time at the other two places, so not enough time to warrant the $60 for both of us. This is a MUST SEE! Also, we found out on day 2 that we missed the 3 day Outside Lands Concert! It's held in the summer and you need to buy tickets in advance. (Paul McCartney opened the concert!) A great time in the park.

“Confusing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2013

This is a lovely park but the really should provide hand held maps as finding your way around is difficult. I encountered more than one set of 'lost' visitors. In the Botanic Gdns plants are well signed but a guide to identifying the birdlife would be a terrific resource for those not acquainted with northern hemisphere species. It would enable a more holistic appreciation.
