scenes of the city
Did you know that early preservationist John Muir's shares his birthday with Earth Day (April 22)? It's no coincidence! We're lucky to have the sanctuary of Muir Woods right in our back yard to celebrate, thanks to him.
This week, we tagged along on an art lover's dream tour for an up-close view of Diego Rivera's first mural in America, Allegory of California, located in the City Club in FiDi.
For this week’s Scenes of the City, Burning Man cofounder John Law, who referred to himself as the "Quasimodo” of the Tribune Tower, takes us to the top of downtown Oakland's 305-foot Tribune Tower, which is steeped in history and mystery.
Contractors began the six-week process of dismantling the upper deck of the old Bay Bridge two-mile eastern span.
For this week's Scenes of the City, we decided to check out some of the more stunning architectural gems of downtown San Francisco. So, we toured the FiDi and took in buildings, young and old.
We went behind the scenes at the new Santa Clara Levi's Stadium to bring you a glimpse into this mammoth, state-of-the-art ode to 49ers football. The (staggering) $1.2 billion stadium seats approximately 68,500. It also features 165 luxury suites and 8,500 club seats.
This week we escaped north to the rustic seaside Howard Creek Ranch Inn and B&B for some glamping, piled-high country breakfast, and super strong cowboy coffee. Perched up on the hillside in Westport, we stayed in the dog-friendly Seaview cabin complete with a outdoor kitchen, charcoal grill, enclosed outdoor shower, and massive quilts.
About an hour northwest of San Francisco, past bustling east Marin, you'll find the Nicasio Valley, where cows and horses rule the hills. Despite it's small town vibe, the valley has plenty of activities to fill your three-day weekend.
