Things to do in San Francisco
San Francisco is filled with eclectic neighbourhoods to explore, while San Francisco's down-town area is always bustling with life. It is also surrounded by many of the city's attractions.
For incredible postcard-perfect views to make you swoon, Nob Hill and Telegraph Hill are superb scenic delights. Channel your inner hipster in historic Haight Ashbury. Find records, enjoy a drink at a café or listen to a band at one of the local venues on the historic street.
The quiet neighbourhood of Hayes Valley is great for accommodation; and it provides peace and quiet when you've worn yourself out. Wherever you choose to stay in this magnificent city, you can easily move from district to district and check out new parts of San Francisco each day.
Alcatraz Island is a must-see attraction when visiting San Francisco. The notorious prison is just a ferry ride away. Enter Alcatraz just as the prisoners did and take a tour of the imposing "Rock", a prison no one escaped from.
The Golden Gate Bridge is another must when visiting the city. Cycle, drive or walk across the 4,200 ft Art Deco suspension bridge. The views from the bridge are amazing and the perfect place to take iconic photos.
Ocean Beach is often cited as San Francisco's best beach. It offers visitors amazing panoramic views as it takes up the city's entire west side. You will get peace and quiet in the five mile sandy stretch as it is the locals' favourite refuge when the city gets too crowded. Visitors will find coffee shops dotted around the sands to warm you up on the cooler NorCal days.
Located in the heart of the city, Aquatic Park is an urban beach. Close to Fisherman's Wharf and Ghirardelli Square, Aquatic Park is easy to reach from apartments, homes or offices. The Aquatic Park's waters are very soft on the skin and the sands will be easier on your feet than the ocean beaches in San Francisco.
The city has other, more secluded ocean spots to lounge upon. Stinson Beach and Bolinas Beach are a bit out of the city, but offer just as much as the others. Visiting them gives travellers a chance to see the local area and experience a more rural piece of Americana.
