San Francisco 49 miles Scenic Drive -10

Taking Sunset Boulevard North, you will drive back into northern part of San Francisco. Sunset Boulevard will go across Lincoln and come into Golden Gate Park. This Park may be comparable to New York's Central Park or Hyde Park in London. The park is full of green trees and lovely flowers. Golden Gate Park is something like residents' relaxing and recreational center. There are museums, Japanese Garden, Outdoor Theater. People can enjoy events here. In the weekend, you will be able to greet to the jogging people or people ride on bicycles. Or you can lie on the green and just relax. Driving in the park surrounded by green makes feel good. Feel better apart from fears, anxieties, or angers from daily life.

After coming out of east gate of Golden Gate Park, the drive will head toward south again. Driving up the hill, you will reach to quiet neighbour residential area on the top of the hill. This is Twin Peaks. You can pull up the car around the top of the hill and enjoy the view of the central San Francisco as picture right.

Driving south east of the city along Castro Street, ride on Interstate 280, highway, the drive will take you to Business District and eventually to the starting point, San Francisco Civic Center.

I hope you enjoyed San Francisco 49 miles Scenic Drive. When you are in the city, take one day to try this drive. You will not regret it.

Hi Shaw .. it's great that the Golden Gate Park is such a great place .. with museums, a Japanese Garden - the Japanese are obviously very important in San Francisco - theatre etc ... Hyde Park in London has wonderful crocus displays in the early spring ..

The tour has been really fun .. thanks so much and I look forward to taking the ride sometime ..

Hi Shaw

Thanks for the refreshing my memory of the Golden Gate Park. The first time I was there was 24 years ago. I have forgotten a lot about it. SO, thank you :-)

Thank you for your coming and thank you for your comment. Golden Gate Park is not really close to the bridge itself. But it is beautiful place as you remember. I am glad I could refresh your memory.

Thank you again.
