Can you guess where this shot was taken from? If you’re facing the Ferry Building walk to the left (North) a few steps from Taylor’s Burgers, toward the Mexican restaurant and out toward the water. This is a somewhat new area to explore and has great views of the Bay Bridge, Treasure Island and more. It’s a fun way to see the bay side of SF, which is only steps away from the Embarcadero. Keep heading North and you’ll discover a few new food spots and the Hornblower Yachts dock too. It’s all good.
The Bay Bridge is beautiful and in some ways, even more interesting than the Golden Gate. For one, it’s lite and the Golden Gate isn’t. Also, the Bay Bridge can be seen from many parts of downtown and the GG can’t.
If you are near the Ferry Building (the foot, or East end of Market Street), you can see it from many angles and in many different lights. If you walk South toward the baseball stadium, you’ll walk under the bridge, maybe stop at one of the bars or burger places along the way, you’ll be in South Beach (there’s no real beach there, it’s just the name for that part of the city. It’s an overlooked part of SF. If you want to take the Muni (the light rail) back, it’s simple and only $1.50 per person, but they don’t make change; so have it right before you get on. BTW, three dollar bills is fine for two people.
