Hotel Majestic, San Francisco, CA - September 2017 Summary
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!
