Discover San Francisco, where Mother Nature shares the stage with urban living at its best. The San Francisco Learning Center is centrally located in the Financial District, just blocks away from the Transamerica Building. It is also within minutes from the Embarcadero, Chinatown, and Union Square shopping areas.
Though famous for Alcatraz Island, the Golden Gate Bridge, and cable cars, this is just a fraction of what San Francisco has to offer. Great international cuisine, Fisherman’s Wharf and verdant parks — all are within walking distance. Some of the finest wineries in the world are just a scenic drive away in nearby Napa and Sonoma — as is the natural beauty of Yosemite National Park and the Monterey Peninsula, making this location an inspirational place for students who dare to venture out and discover something new.
