Before Sunset: Palace of Fine Arts + Marina Green

Take your camera, step back in time, and stroll along the idyllic setting of the Palace of Fine Arts. After taking some time to unwind (catching up on your favorite read or with your favorite company), continue on a short walk along Marina Blvd. passing by beautiful Spanish Colonial homes all the way to Marina Green looking towards the hills of Marin County and Angel Island to delight in views of the bay, get a glimpse of the Alcatraz, and even the silhouette of our famous bridge. By the time the sun sets, you have just spent a relaxing day exploring one of the chosen neighborhoods of the fascinating Panama-Pacific International Exposition.

. . . you can easily find a peaceful spot in one of the benches, or lay a picnic mat and relax in this idyllic park. . . . Designed by Bernard Maybeck, a California Architect, this Roman and Ancient Greek-inspired structure evokes awe and grandeur as you stroll around the artificial lagoon—complete with graceful swans drifting—the magnificent rotunda, curved colonnades, and sculptures—like the statues of weeping women atop the columns symbolizing ‘the melancholy of life without art’.” —An excerpt from the post: December in San Francisco: Weekend Itinerary ~ Friendships are Blessings.
