The Ferry Building fell into disuse around the time when the Golden Gate Bridge and the Bay Bridge opened and well in the 1950s. After the Loma Prieta earthquake in 1989, revitalization efforts began and lead to the currently incarnation of the Ferry Building — one filled with local food producers, retailers, restaurants and a popular Farmers Market.
A unique part of San Francisco’s skyline, it stands atop Telegraph Hill. Built in 1933 with money donated by eccentric heiress named Lillie Hitchcock Coit to beautify the city she loved. Take public transportation to the top, or brave the Filbert steps and climb it yourself. Keep an eye out for the flock of bright green and red wild parrots known to live on Telegraph Hill.
One of the most famous prisons in the United States is located in the middle of San Francisco Bay. It has housed some very well-known criminals, including Al Capone. Plan ahead to visit Alcatraz because tickets are required in advance.
