The neighborhood that the San Francisco City Center Hostel calls home is a true melting pot, and in our Meet the Neighbors series we've talked with the people behind the many businesses that give this 'hood so much flavor.
Cultural experiences are things that travelers often check off a list like they're shopping for groceries. Monument of historical significance. Check. Museum of some kind of art. Check. Bread and butter. Check and check. In San Francisco, a relatively new city by global standards, those who hunger for a socio-cultural sandwich can experience contemporary art, literary ephemera, and historical artifacts (all organic, of course) in one building at the brand new San Francisco History Museum.
Old buildings are relics of bygone eras -- three-dimensional structures that can evoke the past through an accessible art form. In the character of a building -- an adobe hut, a Roman column, a castle on a hill -- a whole history can be revealed.
In honor of the California Museum's new exhibit, Riding Concrete: Skateboarding in California, we're offering a Skater Special! Show your board at check-in and save $5 per night at the Sacramento Hostel.
