What to do and see in Western Addition, California (CA): The Best Sights & Landmarks

January 26, 2022 Rosalyn Ihle

Every neighborhood in San Francisco has its own personality, from the hippie chic of the Upper Haight to the hipster grit of the Mission. The Marina district boasts trendy bistros and postcard-perfect views of the Golden Gate Bridge, while Noe Valley offers quaint and quiet boutiques. Wave hello to the sea lions at Pier 39, and sample local cheese and charcuterie at the Ferry Building. Sit in on a yoga session in Dolores Park or marvel at the Dutch Windmill across from Ocean Beach.

Glad Tidings Church

The GLAD TIDINGS Church that I see is a Church that impacts San Francisco with the message that GOD loves everyone no matter what. I see a Church where worship is so real and honest that it honors GOD and changes people who are a part of it. And that impacts each level and segment of our city: Black, White, Asian, Latin, rich, poor, young, old, educated and uneducated. I see a church that refuses to splinter off into common comfort zones, and strives to live beyond itself building a place that will look like heaven. I see a Church that is filled with people hungry to connect with this awesome GOD in a valid, honest way. The Church that I see has a message so clear that everyone understands that our shared purpose is to love GOD and make HIS love known. I see a church so focused that it refuses to be self-absorbed, rejects the lie that money is our goal, and is passionate about helping others. I see a Church so genuine, outward facing, and compassionate that it reaches out in the face of misunderstanding and overturns the judgments many San Franciscans have made against all churches because some churches have failed. The Church that I see is committed to raising, training and empowering a group of leaders who will look beyond their own needs and carry the GLAD TIDINGS of GOD's LOVE to hurting, lonely, disenfranchised people. THIS IS our quest. This is the dream at GT. This is our direction, and with GOD's help we will become this church.

Japantown

A small neighborhood with Japanese restaurants, shops and other attractions.

I enjoyed Japantown even more than Chinatown - there's a great mall, a nice and peaceful park, and cute shops.

Japan Center

Explore Japanese culture in the city's famed neighborhood. Japan Center's authentic architecture, shops, and food-plus the presence of the Peace Pagoda-make it one of Japantown's prized landmarks.

Reviewed By 747leahl - Beaverton, United States

I used to live in Northern California and went on Scool field trips to the museums, aquarium, art and science centers. What baffles me is we never visited Japan Center. I “discovered” it while looking for a Daiso (sort of like Dollar stores). When we got there and realized it is a wonderland for anyone interested or a fan of Japanese items. There are many restaurants and eateries, shopping and interesting things to look at it. We love it and even stayed in a hotel across the street so we could visit frequently during our five day stay. Highly recommend as a top thing to do in San Francisco.
