Why We Love the Bay Area

July 12th, 2016

The Plaza is known for its convenient location when it comes to the long list of events happening area. Since summer is in full swing, there’s seemingly endless opportunities at your disposal in regards to entertainment and fun. With this being said, here’s a look at why The Plaza is an excellent location for Bay Area lovers.

Bay Area Landmarks

The Bay Area has an impressive list of landmarks such as:

  • The Golden Gate Bridge – Being one of the most prolific bridges in history, The Golden Gate Bridge is an architectural wonder. Being built in 1936, The Golden Gate Bridge has accumulated a few world records since its creation (such as the World’s Longest and Highest Bridge Over A Body of Water). Long story short, it must be seen to be believed!
  • The Golden Gate Park – Golden Gate Park is known as one of the largest man made parks on Earth. Before it became the wonder it is today, the Golden Gate Park site consisted of sand dunes. It’s location was once beyond the city’s limits, but today the Golden Gate Park is known as an urban gem due to the concerts, museums, plants, trees and picnic spots that frequent the area.

Sports

If you’re a sports fan, the Bay might be the sports epicenter you’re looking for. Whether looking college or professional teams, you can easily find a baseball, football or basketball game within a stone’s throw away from the Bay. In addition to this, the Bay has also been home to many Olympic athletes (to a point whereas a hall of fame was created to keep track of them all).

Culture

Whether it be food, music or entertainment, the Bay area is light years ahead of most of the country. With the Haight and Ashbury being known as an integral part of the music scene in the 70s, it’s safe to say that you might see the next big act of tomorrow at a local bar today.

As for unconventional sports (such as surfing), feel free to ask around as the locals will gladly point you in the right direction. If you’re a motorcycle enthusiast, there’s plenty of long stretches of road to explore in a city that’s known for its consistent amazing weather.
