Time Out San Francisco (Time Out Guides) by Editors of Time Out

A big city in a small package, San Franciscos status as a cosmopolitan cultural centre has been further boosted by a slew of museum collections reopening in brand new, purpose-built landmark buildings. The Contemporary Jewish Museum, the Mexican Museum and the California Academy of Sciences are all scheduled to open their doors in new premises in 2008. The city that begat the beat generation, hippies and radical politics, and was the inspiration for writers from Armistead Maupin to Amy Tan, continues to burst with creativity and a cutting-edge political consciousness: way ahead in the green stakes, San Francisco plans to be the first US city to ban plastic bags; meanwhile, the citys gay community, always keen to rebel against the mainstream, is in revolt against its own stereotypes with a burgeoning alternaqueer scene. And with growth in San Francisco itself restricted by the boundary of the bay, forces of regeneration and renewal are making themselves felt in once-gritty Oakland and other areas of the East Bay.
