If you don’t think too hard, you can imagine you’re skating figure eights in perfect time to the holiday music. The Union Square Holiday Ice Rink epitomizes big-city Christmas like not much else.

San Francisco (CNN) — An icon of the San Francisco Bay Area, the Golden Gate Bridge is more than a means for drivers to cross between the city of San Francisco and Marin County to the north.

A grand presence in California since it first opened after four years of construction in 1937 at a cost of $27 million, the bridge has made its appearance in film (“The Maltese Falcon” and “Invasion of the Body Snatchers”) and poetry (“The Changing Light” by beat poet Lawrence Ferlinghetti) and contributed to local folklore.

Environmentalists, rejoice – not all new hotels mean the destruction of what’s come before. Just ask Rob Wallace of Architectural Resources Group, whose latest project, Lodge at the Presidio, takes this design maxim to heart: “When a building is re-adapted for use, it’s much greener than building new.”
