Yoda Fountain & Palace of Fine Arts Center

Getting there:

Take bus 70

USD4.50 for one way but ticket is valid for 4hrs.
To be honest, these locations would be better suited for a driving journey pit stop.

Yoda Fountain at ILM

Home to industrial light and magic and the iconic Yoda fountain. Why visit here? Just because it is Starwars. Perhaps it was a Sunday, hence the main doors were closed, else the main lobby could be explored.
Palace of Fine Arts

From Wikipedia*The Palace of Fine Arts in the Marina District of San Francisco, California , is a monumental structure originally constructed for the 1915 Panama-Pacific Exposition in order to exhibit works of art presented there. One of only a few surviving structures from the Exposition, it is the only one still situated on its original site. It was rebuilt in 1965, and renovation of the lagoon, walkways, and a seismic retrofit were completed in early 2009.

It remains a popular attraction for tourists and locals, and is a favorite location for weddings and wedding party photographs for couples throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, and such an icon that a miniature replica of it was built in Disney's California Adventure in Anaheim.*


As the title implies, a Farmers' Market. A place where mostly locals go to get their locally produce. Loads of free samples and a day to enjoying this small family family. only available on Sundays. The place isn't really a go to location but it is a good stop of point when taking a drive.
Although Fort Mason Center Farmers' Market wasn't a huge tourist success, but it led to the discovery of a weekly event called Off-TheGrid, occurring on Fridays. Off-The Grid from what I've heard from others, is a Roving band of popular food trucks. Offering great food and a carnival like atmosphere. They held their event at Fort Mason on Friday earlier that week.

  1. It's a fantastic place! I attended an amazing event here, loved the ambience and the staff was super friendly. At Los Angeles event venues we faced absolutely NO problems with anything.
