I arrived at the Welcome Center on a Sunday morning. The crowds where light and parking was easy to find. Parking is .25 cents every 15 minutes. The fog in the morning provides a breathtaking view of the bridge and it is a easy walk...More
Skip parking in the upper lot, use the lower lot and walk to the Welcome Center. It’s a 3 minute walk with additional views of the bridge. The walk across the bridge is very nice on a clear day. It can become a little busy...More

The Financial District lies just east of Chinatown but can seem a world apart given it’s San Francisco’s version of Wall Street. The rush of business people make up a hectic weekday and add to a frenetic pace of life, but visitors who spend a few hours walking the narrow streets will be rewarded with fine examples of historic and contemporary architecture, including the iconic Transamerica Pyramid.
