I visited the DeYoung museum and the California Academy of Sciences buildings this day. The DeYoung was pretty affordable, but I didn't pay the $10 extra to see the Andy Warhol exhibit so it only cost me $10 to get in there. By the way though, if you want to skip the art housed there, you can still take the elevator to the top for the panoramic views for free.
The California Academy of Sciences was fairly expensive though, around $26 as I recall. The planetarium shows were already sold out for the day by the time I got there in mid afternoon.
Welcome to my travel blog. Thus far, I have shared a few of my recent trips, some highlights below :
1) Japan, Sep 2014. With the allure of a very foreign culture to me, non-English speaking, Hiroshima, Tokyo, Shinkansen (bullet trains), Tsukiji fish market, and Sumo wrestling, it was time for a two week break from life and traveled to Japan for the second half of September. Wow, what an amazing place, just loved every minute I spent there exploring.
2) On assignment in Berkeley, CA (Sep 2008 - Apr 2009). I explored the San Francisco Bay area in some detail during the weekends I was there ... full info
Outside North West EntranceLooking North from essentially the Great Highway, with the Cliff House up there on the left, the road bends around to the right just after it and takes you into the Lands End area, Ocean Beach is on the left, and the entrance to the Golden Gate Park in this area is just behind me to the right.
