Never long enough

3.5 of 5 stars based on 8 votes

You just never get enough time to see everything in San Francisco, that's why we keep coming back

  • 1. Biking the Golden gate birdge
    http://www.goldengatebridge.org/ http://www.blazingsaddles.com/

    It's a must do thing!!! it's way much cooler than just walking it.Just rent the bike and do it. While you biking over the bridge look out for the signs there and you will get kick out of it. On the end you will be rewarded by the great view of SF bay area if you get lucky and there's no fog :-) You can get back to the SF by the ferry, or just pedal back to the city, once yu ren the bike ride around the beach and embarcadero :-)

  • 2. The Exploratorium
    The Exploratorium, San Francisco, California

    San Francisco's famous science museum has this cool maze called tactile dome. It's one the most coolest and freakiest thing i ever experieced. Basically it's a maze in total dark, it's small you will get through that in less than 5 minutes but it made you, crawl, slide, climb it's really fun first time. Definitely try it when visiting SF, If you go early in the weekdays you won't need to book it. But if you go on weekends or school holidays call up and reserve your space it gets full every time. Have fun

  • 3. Coit Tower
    Coit Tower, San Francisco, California

    It's all the way on the telephragh hill, so many steps to walk up but the view is amazing. The elevator in the coit tower is funny is very old and shaky and the women that was riding it barely speaks english lol but it was fun. Tickets are cheap and as i said the view is amazing.

  • 4. Trolley Ride

    Now that's another must do thing while you in San Francisco, take the old shaky trolley take powel mason line all the way to the fisherman's wharf and enjoy the view. I don't think you really want to walk all those hills. Get a day pass which $11 as one single ride on trolley is $5!!!!! and you can ride the street cars later on too.

  • 5. In & out

    California famous burger place, it's really, really good, there's one on Jeffesrson street in Fishermans' wharf so good. There's always a line. And before you go check out online their secret menu and get some it's worth it

  • 6. Ferry building & Farmers market
    http://www.ferrybuildingmarketplace.com/farmers_market.php

    Opens up at 11 am every day go there for early lunch, so many choices :-)

  • 7. Alcatraz
    Alcatraz, San Francisco, California

    Ok this one is touristy but you can't leave without experiencig, go at the night tour, this one is really cool as you can see how foggy and cold it's gets on the alcatraz island makes it impossible to excape from there without a boat and bring some sweather with you

  • 8. Golden Gate Park
    Golden Gate Park, San Francisco, California

    As I said there's never enough time while you in San Francisco especially when it comes to exploring GG park, it's huge and amazing place but definitely check it out, if you happen time walk to check out the SF zoo too :-)

  • 9. Muir Woods National Monument
    Muir Woods National Monument, Mill Valley, Marin County

    If you have a car drive over there it's a day trip if not take a shuttle or tour bus, it's nice for relaxing, hiking with friends, gives you a break from the city

  • 10. Yosemite National Park
    Yosemite National Park, California

    Ok this one is little bit further, it's like 3 and half hours of driving from San Francisco, there are tour bus going there too. But it's definitely worth it's not called one of the most beatiful national parks for no reason, doesn't matter which season you go, it's beatutiful any time :-) Going by the car gives you more freedom to explore, bus it's way much cheaper option but your time is limited. Either way it's worth to go there.
