Downtown San Francisco map

pictorial, illustrated map of downtown San Francisco

The city of San Francisco lies at the northern tip of the San Francisco peninsula, with the Pacific Ocean to the west and San Francisco Bay to the east. Its most famous landmark is the Golden Gate Bridge, which spans the water where the ocean meets the bay.

This map of downtown San Francisco shows the location of many of the city's neighborhoods and important attractions. Bear in mind that this map reflects the year 2000. Some things have changed in the years since, and a few of the changes have been noted in red. Here's the list:
