After the Earthquake ... How Are Northern California Parks, Museums, Other Attractions?


After the earthquake ... how are northern California parks, museums, other attractions? When a 7.1 earthquake jolted northern California last October, museums, parks, and other visitor attractions rattled and rolled along with everything else.

Fortunately, most of these sites escaped major damage. We list the status--at our press time--of 62 attractions. Call for latest news and hours; unless noted, area code is 415. (If a location is not mentioned, assume that it's open, though it's still best to call ahead.)

Most old favorites--Fisherman's Wharf, The Cannery, Ghirardelli Square, Pier 39, the zoo--weren't badly damaged and are open. Other sites:
