Visible from virtually any point in town (and for that matter from a good way down U.S. back around the Cape), the impressively regal Pilgrim Monument rises 252 feet above town.

Los Olivos Wine Shop
A wine shop that sources from a number of wineries around Santa Barbara County and often pours and sells unusual, hard-to-find bottles, Los Olivos Tasting Room is right in the heart of this charming town in the Santa Barbara Wine Country and specializes in the region's most acclaimed varietal, Pinot Noir. For the $10 tasting fee, you can sample a nice range of wines, many from vineyards not otherwise open to the public. It's an excellent source if you're hoping to gain a sense of the region. Page 22.

440 Castro - 440 Castro Gay Club - Daddy's San Francisco - Best Castro Leather Bars - San Francisco Bear Bars - 440 Castro Lounge - Underwear Parties
Known for many years as Daddy's, 440 Castro has for years been a stalwart among gay neighborhood bars in the Castro. Back in the day, it drew a predominantly leather-and-Levi's crowd, and it's still definitely a go-to if this is your scene. But 440 has steadily broadened its reach in recent years, and on any given night you're liable to find all kinds here, from buffed gym dudes to rugged bears. One thing you can count on is a cruisy vibe, especially on Monday Underwear Nights. Page 6.

Blackbird Bar San Francisco - Blackbird Castro - Blackbird Gay Bar San Francisco - Blackbird Market Street - Blackbird Wine Bar - Gay Cocktails Castro
Part of the new wave of more eclectic and sophisticated gay hangouts that have steadily been gaining in prevalence and popularity in the Castro, the dapper and convivial Blackbird Bar is along the hip Church Street corridor (right at the intersection with Market Street). Inside what was for many years the Expansion Bar you'll find handsome space filled with a mixed crowd of gays and straights, hipsters and wine lovers, and generally friendly and stylish sorts. Cocktails here are simply stellar. Page 4.

Blush Wine Bar San Francisco - Blush Castro Street - Gay Wine Bars - Castro Street Best Restaurants - Blush San Francisco Bar Menu - Blush Wine Lounge
Amid the countless gay bars and taverns around the famed intersection of Castro and 18th streets, Blush is a bit of a departure. This low-keyed, intimate wine bar and small-plates restaurant sofas and small wood tables is a great spot to sample wines by the bottle or glass (there are roughly 50 varieties by the pour) and snack on well-prepared tapas and light cuisine. The crowd is mixed, but given the location, you can well-expect a good many gays and lesbians sipping and noshing here each night. Page 5.

The only San Francisco outpost of Ian Schrager's celebrated Morgans Hotel Group (others around the country include the Royalton in NYC, St. Martins Lane in London, Ames in Boston, the Delano in Miami, and the Mondrian brand with several locations), the Clift San Francisco is one of the scene-iest and swankiest properties in the entire city. This dramatic paean to haute design, its lobby graced by a 35-foot fireplace and artwork by Masters of the Surrealist movement, is spectacular if snooty. Page 29.

Edge San Francisco - Edge Gay Bar 18th Street - Edge Gay Club Castro - Best Gay Happy Hours San Francisco - San Francisco Edge Bar - Edge Castro
A classic gay neighborhood bar that's part of pretty much any Castro bar crawl, the Edge is sort of a catch-all guys' hangout, tending to draw a somewhat older (30s, 40s, and 50s) bunch of local guys. The best qualities are stiff drinks, a fairly popular happy hour (and Sunday-afternoon crowd), and fun retro music. Page 13.

Harvey's Castro - Harvey's Gay Bar San Francisco - Best Gay Brunch San Francisco - Oldest Gay Bar Castro - Elephant Bar - San Francisco Gay Restaurant
Named for the legendary, late gay activist Harvey Milk, the quintessential gay brunch restaurant Harvey's - which opened in 1996 on the site of the old Elephant Bar (which has burned in a fire several years earlier) - is also one of the most popular queer bars in the Castro. Whether for evening cocktails or dinner, or to partake of the delicious brunch (served until 3 pm daily), Harvey's is a must-see for gay visitors. Inside the warmly decorated space are many photos of Harvey Milk. Page 26.

Lexington Club San Francisco - San Francisco Lesbian Bars - Lexington Club Lesbian Bar - San Francisco Mission District Gay Bars - Lexington Club SF
The number of popular, full-time lesbian bars in the world has shrunken steadily over the years, but the very cool, welcoming Lexington Bar - with hardwood floors, a funky old chandelier, a pool table, and ruby-red walls - pulls in a diverse (if somewhat youthful) crowd. Join the crowd in watching TV's L Word on Sunday nights, and partake of the steady mix of themed music and revelry nights. The Lexington bills itself

Midnight Sun San Francisco - Midnight Sun Gay Bar - Midnight Sun Video Bar - Castro Gay Video Bars - Midnight Sun Castro - Gay Cruise Bars Castro
Midnight Sun has been the definitive gay video bar of the Castro for many years now. It recently underwent a refurbishment (which explains the rather unfortunate exterior appearance from the photo I snapped here in spring 2010). This is a favorite stop when gay-bar-hopping in the Castro, and it's especially popular for happy hour, and for catching the latest queer-popular TV shows - American Idol, Project Runway, and plenty of old retro favorites (Queer as Folk among them). Page 7.

The Cafe San Francisco - Delicious Lesbian Nights Cafe - Boy Bar Cafe San Francisco - Gay Latino Clubs San Francisco Castro - Castro Lesbian Dance Bar
Bars come and go in San Francisco's Castro, but The Cafe, which occupies the expansive upper level of a building on Market Street (near the corner of Castro Street) has held its own for many years, serving an eclectic mix of lesbians and gay men of all ages. There's a somewhat younger scene here compared with other Castro gay bars, especially on Friday Boy Bar and Saturday Delicious parties (lesbian), and Thursday Pan Dulce (Latino) nights. The Cafe has a great little patio, a pool area. Page 8.

Pilsner Inn Castro - Pilsner Inn San Francisco - Pilsner Inn Gay Bar Church Street - San Francisco Gay Bars With Patios - Cruise Bars in the Castro
The Castro's loveably raffish Pilsner Inn celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2006, but this slightly divey gay neighborhood joint has really come of age in recent years, becoming a favorite destination of low-keyed, amiable, and individualistic San Francisco gay guys (and a handful of lesbians) who eschew the

The portion of the bay that's closest to the park's right field wall is known as McCovey Cove, after Hall of Fame slugger Willie McCovey. The park itself opened in 2000, providing Giants fans with a far more scenic and comfortable venue for watching baseball than its chilly and windy predecessor, Candlestick Park. In 2011, the Giants became the first MLB team to produce an

San Francisco Bernal Heights Neighborhood - Bernal Heights View Photos - Bernal Heights San Francisco Gay Scene - Bernal Heights Park Directions -
A look toward downtown San Francisco from the funky and rather GLBT-popular neighborhood of Bernal Heights. This photo is taken from Bernal Heights Park, a mostly bald twin-peaked promontory that forms the neighborhood's northern boundary. Walk a couple of blocks south, and you'll find Cortland Avenue, which is lined with offbeat, slighly hipster-esque cafes, shops, and neighborhood businesses. Page 38.

Twin Peaks Gay Bar - Twin Peaks San Francisco Tavern - Twin Peaks Castro - America's Oldest Gay Bars - Gay Fern Bars - Twin Peaks Gay Lounge
One of San Francisco's venerable gay-nightlife icons, Twin Peaks Tavern is said to have been the very first gay bar in America to have clear (as opposed to opaque or covered) glass windows, something unheard back when it opened in the early '70s. Two lesbians opened the bar, but it's had a mostly male following over the years, and these days it tends to draw a somewhat seasoned bunch of guys, and a few women. Page 12.

Mix San Francisco - Mix Gay Bar - Mix Castro - San Francisco Gay Sports Bars - Mix Gay Sports Bar Castro - Castro Gay Neighborhood Lounges - Mix SF
The laid-back Mix bar is one of the Castro's friendlier and more locals-oriented gay hangouts - it's a nice spot on a warm day, as there's a patio out back, and Mix sponsors a local GLBT softball team and cultivates a bit of a following with sports fans. It's a good spot to shoot pool, chat with locals (it's not especially loud), and people-watch. Page 17.

Moby Dick San Francisco - Moby Dick Gay Bar - Moby Dick Castro - Moby Dick Bar 18th Street - San Francisco Castro Gay Scene - Gay Lounges Castro
Since 1979, the popular gay neighborhood bar Moby Dick has been a Castro fixture - one of several nightspots that figure in any queer-bar tour of the neighborhood. Set on the ground floor of a turreted gray Victorian house, this popular corner bar is most famous for the huge saltwater fish tank over the bar. This is a reliably good early-evening bar, and on weekends it remains quite crowded into the wee hours. Page 24.

Q Bar San Francisco - Q Bar Castro Street - Best Gay Bars Castro - Bar on Castro - Best Castro Happy Hours - San Francisco Gay Male Dancers - Q Bar
Opened in the centrally located space that used to house the Bar on Castro (which moved and became the Bar on Church, or BOC), Q Bar is a terrific, attractive, and modern gay bar just across the street from the venerable Castro Theatre. Generally packed during happy hours and drawing a cute, stylish crowd of San Francisco gay A-listers, Q Bar has a number of fun theme nights - go-go boys on Wednesdays, an afternoon beer bust on Saturdays. Signature cocktails include the Tranny Chaser and Q-Jito. Page 21.

SF Badlands - Badlands Gay Bar San Francisco - Castro Badlands Video Bar - SF Badlands 18th Street - Most Popular Gay Bar San Francisco - Gay Badlands
Among the dozen or so gay bars within a stone's throw of Castro and 18th streets, SF Badlands is arguably the most popular of the bunch. It's packed to the rafters on weekends and quite busy on other nights, catering to a relatively youthful (20s and 30s) bunch of guys. There's a bar and seating areas up front, and a mid-size dance floor in the back. SF Badlands is perhaps most famous for its well-attended Sunday beer blast, and happy hour specials are also quite a deal. Page 10.

Toad Hall Gay Bar - Toad Hall San Francisco - Toadhall Gay Bar - Toad Hall Happy Hour - San Francisco Gay Hangouts - Castro Gay Scene - Toad Hall Bar
Toad Hall is a laid-back gay neighborhood in the Castro, part of the big clutch of gay hangouts near the intersection of Castro and 18th. For many years, this space held the Pendulum Bar - it became Toad Hall in 2009 and has become popular for its good-size patio - it doesn't hurt that such neighborhood hot spots as SF Badlands and Edge are close by. Toad Hall has one of the better happy hours in the Castro. Page 32.

Good Vibrations Sex Shop - Good Vibrations Mission - Good Vibrations Downtown San Francisco 2010 - San Francisco Sex Shops - Women's Erotica Stores
The sex-positive erotica shop Good Vibrations opened in the Mission District in 1977 and has become a model for similarly women-owned, community-oriented, and queer-embracing sex boutiques in cities around the country. Even Good Vibrations has developed additional stores, with a second branch on Polk Street in 2003, another in the greater Boston neighborhood of Brookline, Mass., in 2006, and a stylin' and spacious new flagship Good Vibrations store in downtown San Francisco in November 2010.

Parker Guest House San Francisco - Parker Guest House Gay Hotel - Best Gay Inns San Francisco - Castro Gay Hotels - Parker Hotel San Francisco
A superbly run, handsomely furnished, upscale inn that's just steps from the gay buzz of the Castro and the many swish restaurants and lounges of the Mission, the Parker House is San Francisco's definitive gay accommodation, occupying a pair of stately, adjoining Edwardian mansions connected by a leafy courtyard. With 21 rooms, the property offers the modern comfort of an upscale boutique hotel but the personal touch and friendly welcome of a fine inn. Page 9.

One of the city's historic and iconic, which have been running since 1873 - the fare is $5 per ride, or you can buy an unlimited day pass for $11. The city has three cable car routes, all of them traversing the downtown area, and running either north or west from there. They don't reach the city's main neighborhoods of gay interest (well, although the California line does extend fairly close to the Hayes Valley/Civic Center neighborhood). Page 22.

San Francisco Twin Peaks Park - Twin Peaks Mountain San Francisco - Twin Peaks Photographs - Castro View From Twin Peaks - Downtown Skyline Vistas
The San Francisco skyline, viewed from the famous Twin Peaks mountain park, which rises high above the Castro neighborhood in the center of the city. You can reach this viewpoint by driving southwest from downtown and the Castro on Market Street, then bearing right onto 17th Street and continuing west a few blocks, before making a left onto Twin Peaks Boulevard. Follow the signs to the top, where there's a decent-size parking area (it fills up on weekends, so you may have to wait for a spot). Page 31.

San Francisco Ferry Building Marketplace - Ferry Building San Francisco - Farmers Market at Ferry Building Marketplace - Ferry Building Photos
The imposing, historic Ferry Building Marketplace, which contains a trove of fantastic cafes, eateries, food stalls, and markets, is a must-see for foodies and gourmands visiting San Francisco. Behind the building, the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market is held on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays from morning until early afternoon - it's a perfect spot for a delicious lunch. Page 3.

Taylor's Automatic Refresher San Francisco - Taylor's Refresher Ferry Terminal Building - Taylor's Garlic Fries - Ahi Burgers - White Pistachio Shakes
Taylor's Automatic Refresher is one of the most popular - for good reason - restaurants inside the foodies mecca that is San Francisco's Ferry Building Marketplace. An outpost of the original Taylor's in the Napa Valley town of St. Helena, the San Francisco Taylor's is famous for pretty much the same classic short-order California fare: huge and juicy burgers, milkshakes (try the white-pistachio one), rare-seared ahi burgers, and delicious garlic fries with parsley and melted butter.

The convivial garden seating at Cafe Flore, a longtime gay San Francisco fixture in the Castro - a must for people-watching and inexpensive food and drink. The establishment opened in 1973 and is one of the best spots in town to grab coffee with friends, but there's also a full bar, live music some evenings, and an extensive menu American fare, from Kahlua pork hash at brunch to fish tacos and mac-and-cheese at dinner. Page 23.

Castro Theatre Photos - Castro Theater San Francisco - San Francisco Gay Theaters - Historic Theaters Harvey Milk - Castro Historic Sites - Gay Castro
The Castro Theatre, which often shows films of queer interest, is one of the true landmarks of the city's longtime gay 'hood, The Castro. The ornate Spanish Colonial building, which dates to 1922, sits right along a prime stretch of Castro Street, and it enjoyed a prominent appearance in Gus Van Sant's eloquent biopic Milk (Harvey Milk's camera shop had been located just up the street, at 575 Castro, which is also the name of a film by queer filmmaker Jenni Olson). Page 18.

Lucky 13 San Francisco - Lucky 13 Bar Market Street - Castro Dive Bars - Best Mixed Bars San Francisco - Lucky 13 Castro - Best Juke Box San Francisco
Not every nightspot in the Castro is a gay bar, with Lucky 13 a very good example. However, pretty much every bar in the Castro has at least a GLBT following, and a mixed crowd, and the lovably dive-y Lucky 13 lounge definitely fits into this category. This low-key, hipster-favored spot just off the Church Street Corridor carries more than two-dozen beers on tap (the specialty is Belgians), plus a good mix of cocktails. Music tends toward the unpredictable - from reggae to punk to rock. Page 35.
