JUST ANNOUNCED: Jason Cale Band will be playing our Best Of event! Grab your tickets now before they are gone!

The De Young Museum, San Francisco

The De Young, in Golden Gate Park, is a bit of a schlep from the tourist hangouts of Fisherman's Wharf and the Union Square hotels, but it's well worth the cab fare. The museum's ninth-floor observation deck offers a 360-degree view of the western end of the city, including the upper-most spires of the Golden Gate Bridge. Scope out the sights through the floor-to-ceiling windows, then head downstairs to the rest of the museum. It's particularly strong in American art, especially art from California, and has a significant textiles collection. Upcoming: "Modern Nature: Georgia O'Keeffe and Lake George," Feb. 15- May 11.
