Part of the challenge (and fun) of visiting San Francisco is deciding what to do first. What SF city blog wouldn’t be complete without their take on the many wonders their host city has to offer.
Taking a ride on the cable cars is almost a mandatory thing to do when visiting. Must like visiting Alcatraz, seeing the golden gate bridge, or the all too famous twist drive along Lombard Street. But really, its a great way to catch a glimpse of what the city has to offer at a slower pace, and kind of fun if you haven’t tried before. Consider the F line if going for a trolley ride, which takes you past the Wharf, down the Embarcadero and over to Market Street.
A favorite among visitors and locals alike can be Fisherman’s Wharf down by the bay for a leisurely stroll and sight seeing. Check out the sea lions at Pier 39 and then walk over to Stockton St. at North Beach for the best breakfast in town found only at Mama’s.
If you’re more inclined to get a cultural fix, consider taking in the San Francisco ballet, probably the longest running professional ballet company in America.
Our next stop is the golden gate park, home to a million trees, and probably just as many flowers. Be sure to find your way over to the Conservatory of Flowers as well while there.
No doubt you’ll want to take in all the sites, and part of that includes seeing the city from the bay. It’s a great way to rest your tired feet and see SF from a different view.
There’s an impressive array of restaurants to choose from that will keep you table hopping during your stay.
A trip to San Francisco should include a stop in China Town. Seeing is believing, just go.
And if you enjoy football, what could be better than taking in a game and watching the SF Giants (or Oakland A’s) play? You can often get yourself cheaper tickets if you pick them up on the day of game play. Note this might not hold true with games that are closer to finals.
