San Francisco 49 miles Scenic Drive -9

Now the drive takes you to south part of the city. Let me bring up the San Francisco map once again to give you an idea where you are driving right now. I did not mention this, but you can click the map and get the bigger image so that you may see it better or print it for future reference. Here I am putting up a little bigger map (below left) to show you south part of the city. But you can do the same to the map I uploaded in Part-1, though it does not show the south of San Francisco like this time.

We have driven down the ocean side "Great America Parkway", enjoying Pacific Ocean view to your right. Passing San Francisco Zoo to your left, you drive down to Lake Merced (Picture below left). Whenever I am driving either this 49 miles Scenic Drive or any other route, I am always amazed by the fact that San Francisco has a lot of places to relax. This lake has amusement of boating, fishing, and gun shooting. Or you can just relax your eyes like I usually do when I am there.

After driving to the south side of the Lake Merced, the Scenic Drive now turns to North in Sunset Boulevard. Sunset Boulevard runs North - South and one of main road of West San Francisco. In South Part of the Boulevard, there is campus of UC San Francisco, whereas lots of young people are hanging around. I believe San Francisco - Bay Area people are very much education oriented surrounded by famous universities such as Stanford, Barkley, UCSF, etc...

Now the drive brings you back to North part of the city.

Hi Shaw .. it's a really interesting drive .. as you see so much of the city and its facilities - especially the parks and spaces as you say ..

It's interesting to hear that Sunset Boulevard at its southern end is where the Uni campuses are ..

Route 49 scenic drive .. seems to offer tourists just about everything ..

Thanks for showing us round -

Hello Pete,

Thank you for your comment. South of Market Street is mostly residential area and tourist people do not go. There are some interesting part, still for people live here.
