Yerba Buena Gardens – SOMA

July 23rd, 2009 · 3 Comments · San Francisco · By: Casi

Saturday was such a lazy day for Greg and I. We laid in bed until 2p.m. doing nothing (for once)! We had planned the day before to head over to the SOMA area and visit the SFMOMA (that’s San Francisco Museum of Modern Art to all the Noobs out there), Yerba Buena Gardens, and to go check out the Twitter Head Quarters (Yes, we are stalkers). Two out of three aint so bad!

We figured since SFMOMA closes at 5:45 and we would have to pay $10 to get in, it would be better to wait for a not so lazy day where we could get out there early and leisurely walk through the museum instead of speed walking past everything. But, we got some good pics of the outside from Yerba Buena Gardens!

The Yerba Buena Gardens wasn’t exactly what I thought it would be. I imagined tons of flowers and small dirt paths, maybe a little pond in the middle. It was more of a concrete garden if you ask me. There is a beautiful waterfall, great views of the city, lots of big trees, some nice art sculptures, a big grassy area in the center, a restaurant and tea house above the waterfall, and tons of birds! Even though it wasn’t exactly what I imagined it was still a very nice place to sit around and have some lunch while people watching. We didn’t get a chance to check out the restaurant or tea lounge but I definitely want to go back and try out some tea.

Twitter HQ wasn’t as exciting as we thought but there was another cute little park across the street where we saw some locals playing bocce ball (we imagined them to be some Twitter executives trying to clear their minds before they go back to make the next big web phenomenon).

We had a great time walking around in SOMA and can’t wait to come back for the Museum!
