1. Golden Gate Park
There isn't enough space on the Thrillist servers to adequately describe the extent to which GGP is the city's greatest asset, so I'll try to make this brief. The Academy of Sciences and the de Young. The Conservatory of Flowers and Japanese Tea Garden. Hippie Hill. Hippie Hill on 4/20. Outside Lands. Hardly Strictly Bluegrass. Strawberry Hill and Stow Lake. Two functioning windmills. Roller discoers. Swingers. An actual herd of buffalo.
So, yes, it has a lot of individual stuffs. But each of these is interesting enough to the SF population as a whole that they're deserving of a subsequent Power Rank of their own. So stay tuned for our next SF piece -- every buffalo in Golden Gate Park, ranked from "most likely to succeed" to "have a great summer, never change."
