Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book.

It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages,

The Palace of Fine Arts

This elegant dome-like structure sits on the edge of the Marina, close enough to the ocean that you can hear the mournful blare of the foghorns in the distance. The wide green lawn in front is the perfect place for a picnic on a warm autumn afternoon; from a shady spot beneath a tree, you can admire the groups of wedding parties that inevitably float by like colorful birds, photographers in tow. Or visit at night, when the pillars are lit from underneath, casting a seriously flattering glow on everyone around... You won't be able to escape without some serious smooching.

The Golden Gate Bridge


But we never get tired of this striking, soaring sculpture, rising above the water like a vision in red.

The Golden Gate Bridge is the ultimate symbol of freedom and joy and the power of a’s true. Just wait until you see it. Park down by Chrissy Field and hike up on to the bridge; brave the wind and walk across; peer over the edge. Take in the view: the windsurfers, the sailboats, the iconic downtown skyline. Breathtaking.

Golden Gate Park

Golden Gate Park is so enormous – over 1,000 acres, with over a million trees and nine lakes – that you can’t discover it all at once. You’ll have to make several trips and leisurely enjoy each separate part of it. You might start with the Japanese Tea Gardens, where stunning architecture is accented with imported plants, bronzes, goldfish and stunning statuary. Or spend a long afternoon at the Strybing Arboretum and Botanical Gardens, where several botanical “zones” have been created, full of gorgeous flora and fauna, and conveniently peppered with benches along winding walkways where you can sit and read or share a picnic. One of the most beautiful buildings in the Park, The Conservatory of Flowers, has recently been renovated, and will re-open in the fall of 2003 for the first time in eight years. The building looks like a Victorian greenhouse, and is filled with exotic plants from all over the world. We can’t wait!

There’s so much to experience in Golden Gate Park –you’ll just have to go and see for yourself!

On a cable car

You're in San Francisco!
You simply must!

For a mere $3, you can jump on a one of those charming cable cars and take in the sights as it merrily clanks up and down the streets. Stop off at Union Square for a bit of shopping or a bite to eat; venture through Chinatown for dim sum and souvenirs. Hang off the side pole, wave at the passerby, or just enjoy the view.

Over an Irish Coffee at the Buena Vista…

At the far edge of Fisherman’s Wharf, a bustling café sits along the cable car line and serves up a drink that has become a tradition for many San Franciscans… hot coffee with a generous splash Irish whisky, topped off with a layer of cream. The bartender lines up the glasses and pours a whole row of them at once. The café claims that they invented the drink, and introduced it to America; and why not? It’s a perfect tonic for one of those days when the fog is pouring off the bay and the wind makes you pull your jacket tighter…
