Things to Do in San Francisco

Adventure and Discovery Near Hotel Emblem

Hotel Emblem is just steps away from the most acclaimed things to do in San Francisco. From its emotive art galleries to its eclectic boutique shops, there’s always something captivating to discover in Downtown San Francisco, the fast-paced urban atmosphere surrounding Hotel Emblem.

For the art-lover, The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and its colossal collection of contemporary art spans ten floors. Spending an entire day seeing the imaginative, inspiring exhibitions is more than possible. Or, head to the Mission District to see the vivid Mission murals inspired by world-famous artist Diego Rivera in the 1930s. Don’t miss Balmy Alley with its murals dating back to the 1970s, many of which are dedicated to and inspired by trailblazing female artists like Frida Kahlo and Georgia O’Keeffe.

Ranging from the eclectic to the exotic, Golden Gate Park has it all. You won’t see the city’s famous Golden Gate Bridge here—that’s a few miles to the north—but free music, fine art, and everything in between can be found in the massive green space. See the Japanese Tea Garden, find the Dutch Windmill, and enjoy American fare with ocean views all without ever leaving the park. Further east in The Castro, Mission Dolores Park has a touch more spirit and sparkle, as it is located in one of the most out and proud neighborhoods in the world.
