Your Go-To Guide to SF for the PBS Annual Meeting

Welcome to San Francisco, the perennial boomtown by the Bay! Merging an unquenchable thirst for progress with a deep fascination with its own multilayered history, the city in 2014 is undergoing one of its most dynamic periods in recent memory. World-class cultural treasures share the skyline with world-changing technology companies as well as world-renowned educational, scientific, and media institutions. Of course, as with any cosmopolitan metropolis, there's a lot to see and do.

Here you'll find KQED's insider guides to views, activities, tours, restaurants, bars, and much more. We love our city by the Bay and we've picked the best and organized them based on the distance from Mission & 4th Street.

And join in our #SFselfiePBS Social Media challenge for the best conference selfie!

Social Media Challenge: Show Us Your Best SF Selfie During The PBS Annual Meeting!

KQED challenges you to show us your best side with a selfie taken in our beautiful city that captures the unique experience of visiting SF. The very best photo, as determined by KQED's distinguished selfie experts, will win its creator a mystery SF-themed prize on the last day of the Annual Meeting.

To take part, just snap your selfie somewhere in San Francisco during the Annual Meeting and upload it to Instagram or Twitter with the hashtag #SFselfiePBS. Your selfie could show you:

* In front of an iconic (or lesser known) San Francisco landmark
* Red-faced after climbing one of our famously steep hills
* Connecting with a fabulous KQED employee at one of the Annual Meeting events
* Wearing the cheap "I Love SF" fleece you were forced to buy before freezing to death in Fisherman's Wharf

We'll be choosing our favorite on Thursday May 15, so make sure you send us your #SFselfiePBS (as many as you like) by 12pm noon PT that day. Be sure to follow KQED's @kqed Instagram to see if your selfie makes it onto our feed!
