Points of Interest[edit | edit source]

Angel Island
Angel Island is an island in San Francisco Bay that offers expansive views of the San Francisco skyline, the Marin County Headlands and Mount Tamalpais. The entire island is included within Angel Island State Park, and is administered by California State Parks. Angel Island is also the location of the San Francisco chapter of the Legacy - a secret society devoted towards investigating cases of the supernatural. The Legacy is headquartered in a "Legacy House" owned by the group's prefect Derek Rayne. [1]
Bay General Hospital
In 1996, a vampire physician of Clan Ventrue used the children's wing of the hospital as his personal feeding grounds. Caitlin Byrne, an investigative reporter and senior editor of the San Francisco Times began putting together a piece exposing the Doctor's actions. Julian Luna, the vampire Prince of San Francisco, recognized the doctor as a fellow Kindred and knew that he had violated Kindred law. He sent his Nosferatu ally Daedalus to the hospital to execute the doctor. Afterward, he burned his remains in the incinerator. Daedalus also befriended a terminally ill young boy named Abel. [2]

San Francisco at night.

Halliwell residence
An ancestral family home, it was once owned by Penny Halliwell. Following her death, the house was willed to her grandchildren, Phoebe, Prue and Piper. The three sisters discovered the Book of Shadows, an ancient tome that had been handed down through the family for generations. Reciting an incantation from the book, the sisters developed supernatural abilities and became known as The Charmed Ones. [3]
Golden Gate Bridge
The Golden Gate Bridge is a suspension bridge located in San Francisco, California. It is a three mile long bridge that carries US 101 between the city of San Francisco and the San Francisco Peninsula in Marin County. Nearly every film or TV series that uses San Francisco as a setting includes a shot of the Golden Gate Bridge. In the 1986 horror film Neon Maniacs, a group of teenagers went out to the bridge at night, never suspecting that it was inhabited by a horde of bizarre death monsters who tried to kill them. The Golden Gate Bridge was also featured in the opening credit montage of the WB Network television series Charmed and can be seen in every episode of the show.
The Haven was a trendy lounge club owned by a Toreador vampire named Lillie Langtry. In addition to live music and over-priced drinks, it also served as a sanctuary for the Kindred. [4]
Nighthawks Diner
This was a classic-style diner located some distance from the downtown area of San Francisco. Police detective Frank Kohanek used to come here for private meetings with vampire leader Julian Luna. [5]
Suncrest was a psychiatric hospital. The vampire serial killer Starkweather was remanded here after getting into a bar fight at The Haven. He killed a doctor, smeared the words "Blood Brothers" on the wall in his blood and then escaped. [6]
