Yerba Buena Gardens
There are plenty of attractions near SoMa, and the Yerba Buena Gardens is at the centre of it all. Not only are the gardens a spectacular place to enjoy some sun, but there’s also plenty to do in its surrounds. Whether you fancy ice-skating, bowling or a visit to a museum, this area has it all. Visit the Yerba Buena Centre for the Arts for your cultural fix, or the Cartoon Art Museum if you’re after something a little different!
A visit to SoMa is incomplete without stopping by the stadium, which is easily one of the top attractions in San Francisco. With a range of restaurants and sports bars around the stadium, you can make a day out of your visit.
This neighbourhood is known for its exciting cultural and arts scene, and 111 Minna is certainly a highlight of the SoMa arts tour. This is well worth a visit during the day, when the art gallery is open for browsing. However, stay until sunset and 111 Minna becomes a buzzing nightclub. Unsurprisingly, this is the perfect hipster hotspot; so get involved if you’re after a unique night.
San Francisco Flower Mart
SoMa is famous for the San Francisco Flower Mart, which is a delight for the senses as soon as you enter. Take in the bright colours and fresh scents of the botanicals, available at wholesale prices. Pick up a bouquet for your home-away-from-home, take some snaps for your Instagram or simply wander around and absorb the sights and smells.
