Can’t say enough about the San Francisco Botanical Gardens! It is a living museum within Golden Gate Park, offering 55 acres of both landscaped gardens and open spaces, showcasing over 8,500 different kinds of plants from around the world.

      It’s good for soft and romantic photos. we can spend hours there and will not cover all good locations.
