SoMa



South of Market, also known as "SoMa," is two square miles of hot nightclubs, fashionable restaurants, experimental theaters, discount shopping outlets and art galleries, plus the nation’s most beautiful ballpark. Bordering SoMa to the east is another emerging area known as the City Front District, encompassing the Steuart Street area north of Justin Herman Plaza and the Ferry Building.

* The Yerba Buena Center for the Arts is a $44 million entertainment and art complex located at 701 Mission Street. Performances and exhibits showcase San Francisco's cultural diversity. The center adjoins Moscone Convention Center, The City's premier convention and exhibition facility. Moscone West, which opened in June 2003, is immediately adjacent to the main Moscone facility.
* Pacific Bell Park — San Francisco’s “Miracle On Third Street” — is home to the San Francisco Giants. Guided Insider’s Tours are offered daily at 10:30 am and 12:30 pm. See the sights only players and staff get to see: sit in the dugout, experience a big league clubhouse, walk on the field, and visit other places in the park not available to the general public.
