Financial District
Quote:
The District is home to the city's largest concentration of corporate headquarters, law firms, banks, savings & loans and other financial institutions, such as the corporate headquarters of VISA, Wells Fargo Bank, the Charles Schwab Corporation, McKesson Corporation, Bechtel, Gap, the Union Bank of California and salesforce.com among others. The headquarters of the 12th district of the United States Federal Reserve are located in the area as well. Montgomery Street ("Wall Street of the West") is the traditional heart of the district. There are several shopping malls in the area including the Crocker Galleria, the Embarcadero Center, the Ferry Building, and the Rincon Center complex.

I love Golden Gate Park - and the Japanese garden which you have pictured is a real treat.

the weather is amazing, interesting and beautiful. Many people think the weather is bad there but they dont understand how it works. I absolutely love the weather there and around the bay, even though it's different from area to area. I remember one time coming back from Napa to The City (yes, in caps) one early evening on 101 just north of Sausalito the fog was so think against the mountains that huge drops of water were pelting the cars and in 30 seconds it was over and you were out of the fog and could see the clear sky again..........and it wasn't a rain shower as the sky was clear

Thank you for all your comments. To answer your question about the weather, San Francisco has a little different weather with the rest of the Bay Area. While the summer is around the Bay Area now, San Francisco has a "little winter" here when you need a sweater to go out. The real summer in the city is around September and October.
