Only in San Franciso


I love the tourism slogan, 'Only in San Francisco' because it's so true. Where else in the U.S can you find attractions like Chinatown, the Golden Gate Bridge, Alamo Square, or even Alcatraz? These are the things that make San Francisco special.

If you're going on holidays to San Francisco this summer, one of the hottest not-to-be-missed attractions is the musical stage production of J. M. Barrie's, Peter Pan. Performed in an outdoor pavilion theater, the 2 1/2 hour show features a montage of puppets, music, magical flying, plus 360 degree video projections, the first of it's kind in the world. Visitors are invited to view the '100 Years of Peter Pan' exhibit as well as to enjoy refreshments from the concession stands. The last date to see Peter Pan in San Francisco is September 5th.

The Summer 2010 San Francisco Art Bash is another event to be enjoyed as it offers five different art exhibits at different venues throughout the city until early September. The San Francisco Museum of Art (SFMOA) introduces the Fisher Collection which includes works by Warhol and Calder while the de Young Museum features The Birth of Impressionism Masterpieces from the Musée D'Orsay in France. At the Contemporary Jewish Museum, you'll find Various Illuminations of a Crazy World by Maira Kalman; the Shanghai exhibit at the Asian Art Museum; and Techno-Craft by Yves Behar at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts.

Also in September, you'll find the most well attended event in Chinatown, the 2010 Autumn Moon Festival, September 18-19. Signifying a holiday on the Chinese Lunar calendar, Chinatown becomes even more alive with performers, dancers, music, and drummers, as they celebrate this important event.
