I actually found out about this from my boyfriend, after telling me he wanted to go to all the POPOS. I was dumbfounded of course, so I did my research, & was excited to write about it here because this is one of those hidden easter egg that not even the locals know about. POPOS stands for Privately Owned Public Open Spaces, and are located around the Downtown San Francisco area. There are about 68 secret spaces that offer alluring vistas of SF, & intimate indoor or outdoor settings. Maps are available to all 68 secret spaces with a helpful guide to get you there, such as where to go to avoid security guards, find unmarked doors, & hours of operation. I can’t wait to find some of these hidden spots with my boyfriend!
