San Francisco

San Francisco is a very nice place to visit. There are a great many things to do and see and I have only covered a few here. So, stay tuned for future San Francisco blogs in the future that cover other attractions. Today I am writing about a few things to do and see while you are in San Francisco.

San Francisco is rapidly getting to be plainly a standout among the most went by urban areas in the U.S. what’s more, it’s anything but difficult to perceive any reason why. “The City by the Bay” packs a considerable measure of fun into only a 7 mile-by-7 mile territory. With a varied blend of neighborhoods, there’s genuinely something for everybody in San Francisco. From the rough coastline and the redwood tree-filled parks, to the bustling boulevards of the city itself, there’s plenty to do.

View of Golden Gate Bridge from Baker Beach

Perhaps one of the most iconic sights in all of San Francisco, the Golden Gate Bridge is an absolute must see. There are a few good spots to view it from, but my personal favorite is Baker Beach. Not only do you get an awesome front row seat to the bridge, but you can dip your toes in the chilly Pacific. This is a particularly good spot to grab a meal from a local market, lay down a blanket and enjoy a picnic basking in the view of the famous bridge.

From Wikipedia; “The Golden Gate Bridge is a suspension bridge spanning the Golden Gate strait, the one-mile-wide (1.6 km), one-point-seven-mile-long (2.7 km) channel between San Francisco Bay and the Pacific Ocean. The structure links the American city of San Francisco, California – the northern tip of the San Francisco Peninsula – to Marin County, carrying both U.S. Route 101 and California State Route 1 across the strait. The bridge is one of the most internationally recognized symbols of San Francisco, California, and the United States. It has been declared one of the Wonders of the Modern World by the American Society of Civil Engineers.”

Visit the Musee Mecanique

Fisherman’s Wharf is one of the touristiest areas of San Francisco and the overpriced, crowded sights can be draining. But if you head down the water to Pier 41, there’s a unique attraction that’s relatively under the tourist radar: the Musee Mechanique. This interactive museum has one of the largest collections of antique arcade games in the world. Entry is free and it’s only a couple of quarters to play the games.

Eat at Spark Social Food Trucks

With such a diverse population, it can be difficult to decide what cuisine to enjoy for dinner. Luckily at Spark Social Food Trucks in the Mission Bay, you can try a little bit of everything! Not only is the food delicious, but the food truck has a community feel with weekly events and free s’mores.

Have Tea at the Japanese Tea Garden

If you’re craving some calm amidst the somewhat hectic streets of SF, the Japanese Tea Garden is perfect. Located in Golden Gate Park, the gardens are landscaped to look exactly like Japan. And you can enjoy tea in the traditional Tea House overlooking the pond. This is a great place to relax and stroll through the beautiful gardens. This is beautiful and if you get to Vancouver check out the Tea Garden there as well.

Soak Up the Sun at Dolores Park

San Francisco is known for its fog (dubbed endearingly by the locals as “Karl”) but certain areas of the city receive a surprising amount of sunshine, especially in autumn. If you catch the city on a sunny day, head to Dolores Park in the Mission. It can get a bit crowded on the weekends, but if you can squeeze in on a slice of grass, grab a scoop of ice cream from nearby Bi-Rite Creamery and enjoy.

See the Mission Murals

Although San Francisco has plenty of museums, you don’t need to pay entry to enjoy some art. The Mission neighborhood has plenty of street art and murals that reflect the culture and history of the community. My personal favorite is the mural on the Women’s Building. Don’t miss it!

    I have newer been in USA. But if I go there, San Francisco is one of the cities I have in my bucket list, yes, I have a bucket list 🙂
    I like the place you talk about. Of course I have seen the bridge in many movies but it´s different to see it live. And the Japanese Garden looks like I place I would love to go to.
    Being tourist for first time, with all the walking and transport that means, is Hotel Majestic well located?

      Hi Johann,
      I have conversely never been to Iceland but it is on my list of places I would like to visit. You have such great information and things to do and see regarding Iceland on your website, I encourage everyone to check it out.
      San Francisco is a beautiful place and on many people’s bucket list. The Golden Gate bridge is one of the most iconic structures in the world and is quite the spectacular sight in person. You also should take a ride on the cable cars.
      The Hotel Majestic is well located and it should be easy to get around from that location.
      Let me know if you would like information on other dates or have any questions.
      Sincerely,
      Xin

        Thank you Xin for nice words.

        And I like your site too, come here quite often, a lot of great ideas.

        I will for sure have this hotel in mind. The Golden Gate bridge is one of the reason I want to go there.
        Are I´m right too, that one street, like a mountain road looking at how high it is, are on San Francisco? Or it that in other city, may be I´m wrong.

          Hi Johann,

          San Francisco is an interesting place to visit. Some of the main tourist spots like Fisherman’s Wharf can get really crowded. I recommend that people venture off into some of the less crowded areas and get a real taste of this diverse city. It is like that in many cities I visit. Once you see the “famous” spots venture off into more obscure areas and see things most tourists never experience.

          Sincerely,

          Xin

    Always liked food trucks so this is going to definitely be a stop when we get to San Francisco. Never been to the Japanese Tea Garden but I researched it online and it looks amazing so I can’t wait to get there. My kids are also excited about seeing the Golden State Bridge as they’ve never seen it. Going to get that TripSpin account and take advantage of discounts to San Francisco or any other city that’s on our bucket list.

      Hello Natalie,
      The Golden Gate Bridge is so iconic that people really do look forward to seeing it. Did you know that one of the New York City bridges, I think it was the Brooklyn Bridge maybe, is a smaller version? I read that they wanted to prove the design and so they constructed the New York bridge first on a smaller scale. I will have to refresh myself on the specifics, but that was the story in a nutshell. By the way if you are interested in New York City, you can read my blog here.
      The Tea Gardens are a great place to visit. I enjoy these Japanese or Chinese gardens whenever I visit them. There is another great one in Vancouver, Canada. Vancouver is also a great place to visit and will the subject of a future blog on my part.
      The food trucks are great even though they have become trendy in many cities. Sometimes you need a break from expensive restaurants and food trucks can be a tasty, inexpensive option.
      I agree that the savings you can get on my TripSpin website are great and can allow you to travel more often of do more from the hotel discounts. On my last Las Vegas trip, just last week, we saved so much we saw an extra Cirque du Soliel show at the Bellagio Hotel.
      If you have any question on registering or booking travel, just let me know.
      Sincerely,
      Xin
