Primary Care Neurology Update and Managing Depression - San Francisco, California

July 19, 2015 - July 21, 2015

Parc 55 Wyndham San Francisco Union Square

San Francisco is celebrating this year the Golden Gate Bridge 75th anniversary. Sitting within seven square miles on a peninsula in the Pacific Ocean are dramatic cityscapes and stupendous views that are known the world over. But much as plunging hills, cable cars, and – perhaps most iconic of all – the Golden Gate Bridge, represent the city, it is the energetic, free-thinking, can-do populace that really makes the place what it is. This city is so beautiful, exciting, diverse, and cosmopolitan that you can always find something new to see and do no matter if it's your first or fiftieth visit. Parc 55 Wyndham San Francisco.

Parc 55 Wyndham San Francisco - Union Square

Consistently ranked as America's Favorite City, San Francisco never ceases to entertain. Enjoy the cool blast of salty air as you stroll across the Golden Gate. Stuff yourself with dim sum in Chinatown. Browse the secondhand shops along Haight Street. Recite poetry in a North Beach coffeehouse. Stroll Ocean Beach, skate through Golden Gate Park, ride the cable cars to Fisherman's Wharf, tour a Victorian mansion, explore Alcatraz Island, go to a Giants ball game -- the list is endless.

Experience an unmatched level of luxury at Wyndham Parc 55 Union Square, offering unique and stunning accommodations in downtown San Francisco. The thoughtfully appointed guest rooms and spacious suites boast extraordinary comfort with breathtaking views of "everyone's favorite city." Witness the warm and beautiful sunsets over Golden Gate Bridge and the glittering waters of the bay. Watch cable cars navigate through world-famous hills and slopes. These restful accommodations are beautifully located in Union Square, providing direct access to the wonders of San Francisco.

San Francisco is a great city to visit for people of all ages, but especially for the younger set. San Francisco has great street performers and kids love to watch them.Kids with maritime interests can get them satisfied here. The Liberty ship Jeremiah O'Brien and the Pampanito submarine are open for tours, as is the Hyde Street Pier Maritime Museum. Alcatraz: This tour involves a long-ish boat ride in each direction and lots of walking around in places where running is not a good idea. If you or your kids like things weird and unusual, try Ripley's Believe it Or Not, the Wax Museum or an old-fashioned arcade games at Musee Mechanique.
