The most important part of Yerba Buena is its gardens, called Esplanade, an area where visitors and locals come to relax and unwind. Depending on the time of year, various events and concerts are celebrated in Yerba Buena.

What to see in Yerba Buena

There are a number of good places to visit in the gardens themselves as well as in the neighboring streets:

  • Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial: Next to the Esplanade Gardens you will see a large waterfall. Behind it is the monument to the memory of Martin Luther King, Jr.
  • Charles Looff Historic Carousel: Hand-built in 1906, it is preserved in perfect condition. It is an attraction that will delight the garden's youngest visitors (and some of the older ones as well).
  • Museums: The most important ones are the SFMOMA (the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art) and the Contemporary Jewish Museum.
  • Buildings: Some of the most representative buildings in the area are the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts and the Moscone Convention Center.
