Yerba Buena WAS the Original Name of San Francisco during the Mexican Period! The Gardens,is composed of more than 15 museums, performing arts facilities, and other cultural institutions; a 5.5-acre park; restaurants (thirsty bear); hotels (Mariott); movie theaters (Meteon); shopping; housing for a variety of income levels (many Filipinos live in nearby in Lapu-lapu, Rizal and Tandang Sora Streets); and one of the most heavily used convention centers in the world (Moscone). It is a nice place to hang around in Downtown Area since it is free!

Address: South of Market
Directions: Above the Moscone Convention Center, Beside Metreon- Yerba Buena Gardens covers two square city blocks bounded by Mission, Folsom, Third and Fourth Streets.
