    Clarion Alley

    Clarion Alley, San Francisco, CA 94110
    18 reviews

    This beautiful alley symbolizes everything that makes the Mission District great. The art is vibrant, often socially or politically relevant. It may appear a bit dirty, but it's authentic and real. What you get is unfiltered expression. The street art along these walls often changes, so it's also one of the city's more "alive" hidden attractions.

    By far one of the best venue for concerts. Most if not all of the seats has great view of the stage. Very comfortable and roomy seats. Sound might not be that great but for most parts it is sufficient. Very beautiful surreal architecture inside and out. Staff are very professional and worked diligently to prevent the excited crowd from ...

    NightLife at California Academy of Sciences

    17 reviews

    The Academy of Sciences' NightLife is a great opportunity to both party and experience the museum at a reduced cost. Long lines form for both the planetarium and rainforest, so it's advisable to head to those first. With live music, fun exhibits and a beautiful rooftop, it's a really fun experience.

    41 reviews

    I kept discovering everything hidden and mysterious about the house before the tour guide got to talking about it! She was nice about it, though. Probably happens a lot. It was definitely fun and educational, and made me become interested in the story of this crazy house.

    Coachella was never on my to-go-list. Didn't really care to go until my friend sold me his week1 ticket 1-2 weeks before the event for early bird face value. I thought it was a good deal plus my bf was planning on going. Definately an experience to remember with no regrets at all! Great people, art everywhere, live bands/djs everywhere, ...
