    Golden Gate Bridge

    843 reviews

    This is a must see place when you have chance to visit SF. Some people told me that If you got here first time and you can see the entire bridge (not foggy), you will come back again.

    San Diego Zoo

    475 reviews

    The San Diego Zoo is definitely one of, if not the very best, zoo in the country. The grounds are enormous, and there is plenty to see and keep a family or group entertained for an entire day. They offer tours that include pickup and dropoff at your San Diego based hotels, if that makes it easier than renting a ...

    Balboa Park

    362 reviews

    Balboa Park is a great spot for families and dates! There are a number of museums (there's at least 1 with free admission, the others have a fee) and the gardens and fountains are beautiful. I love the intricate architecture of the outside of the buildings. This is a great spot to spend a few hours walking around and exploring ...

    The largest and best known park in San Francisco is the 1,017 acre (411 ha) Golden Gate Park. Its history goes back to 1870 when the site was an area of wild sand dunes. At the time, the area, known as 'outside lands', was well outside the city's developed limits.

    Old Town

    257 reviews

    I thought Old Town was going to be the oldest part of town but it turns out it's kind of a historically preserved, tourist attraction. The entire thing is set up like the old wild west/traditional Mexico feeling. While your there you have to stop for some of the Mexican food and I recommend grabbing a margarita while your at ...

    AT&T Park

    206 reviews

    ATT Park is the best park in Major League Baseball. The consession stands are mini five star restaurants. The view will distract you from the game (like that's a bad thing).

    Riding a Cable Car

    201 reviews

    This is one of the few typical tourist experiences that surpasses expectations. Riding the cable cars up and down the impossibly steep streets with the wind blowing through your hair is something that just can't be replicated. An absolute must do.

    Lombard Street

    Driving down this street feels surreal! The houses along it are gorgeous and it's worth braving the traffic for the view alone.

    Union Square

    210 reviews

    Still on my bucket list to ice skate in Union Square but nonetheless it is a great spot for walking, shopping & sightseeing year long. Close to the ferry building and fisherman's wharf, it's a notable/iconic location in San Francisco with views of the water. Perks: great for people watching!

    If you are already visiting Disneyland but want to visit a park that's a little more adventurous and grown up, DCA is the place. You can find "wilder" rides here, with a real roller coaster and the free falling Tower or Terror. They also serve alcohol here! It's really an extension of Disneyland, but with all the variety offered here, ...
