Chinatown San Francisco

San Francisco’s Chinatown begins at the dragon-crested gate at Grant Avenue and Bush Street, a gift from the Republic of China in 1969. San Francisco’s oldest street—Grant Avenue—runs eight blocks through the center of America’s ethnic capital to over 1.5 million people of Chinese descent. Don’t miss the open markets on Stockton Street and all the little alleys between Grant and Stockton or you’ll miss some of the most interesting parts of Chinatown.

The Links at Spanish Bay

Spanish Bay recalls the original Scottish concept for the game of golf, established over five hundred years ago. This was the intention of the design team, Robert Trent Jones Jr., Tom Watson and Sandy Tatum, in their creation of a true links golf course. Links is an old Scottish word for sandy wasteland, usually near the sea, with bristly grasses and ever prevailing wind. The Links at Spanish Bay are so authentic that even the Monterey coastline mirrors the rugged, natural beauty of Scotland.

Shrine Drive-Through Tree

"One of the most unusual drive-through concepts in the U.S. is tucked away among the ancient redwoods of Northern California." Lightning struck this particular giant redwood hundreds of years ago, creating a hole in its enormous trunk that’s big enough to accommodate a car — and a lot of tourists.
