    359 reviews

    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.

    Fisherman's Wharf

    408 reviews

    This spot has a little bit of everything, no shortage of things to see and do! You have lots of restaurants, though choose wisely because most of them aren't so great. You have Boudin's for amazing bread, Musee Mechanique for a really unique arcade experience, and the cutest sea lions you've ever seen hanging out on Pier 39! Blue Bottle ...

    I'm not a big fan of Giants baseball team. The stadium is big and not far from downtown. Planing your trip to get there because it always get crowded.

    Ferry Building Marketplace

    4.5
    204 reviews

    This is a GREAT place to wander about. Personal favourites include the former Taylor's Refresher, Cowgirl Creamery , the bookstore, the wine place, and of course the view. It is a bit Yupscale and pricey. However, I knew that walking in and still had a great time. Great Bay view too.

    Riding a Cable Car

    Worth the high price just for the experience. Although the wait can be long at times, it is nice to slow down and just enjoy the anticipation. I like to stand on the side since it is more exciting.

    Pier 39

    4
    234 reviews

    Perfectly touristy pier that's also perfectly relaxing. I came here for the sea lions but didn't see any except for the signature statue, but the pier itself has the charm of a festive square and is filled with ticket booths for various local cruise companies and restaurants of all kinds for a light meal before cruises. We casually strolled around ...

    Union Square

    210 reviews

    I can still never resist a good shopping trip in Union Square. Often super busy, with some event or another going on. Still, I'm always down for Union Square. Definitely a staple of SF, you have to take family there when visiting.

    Palace of Fine Arts

    4.5
    145 reviews

    The Palace of Fine Arts is a great place to relax after walking around San Francisco for a couple of hours. The geese are nearby and it's calming to see them as they swim around in the pond. There's this huge roman-style monument that's in the center of the Palace of Fine Arts. That's where the 1995 Sean Connery movie, ...

    Dolores Park

    4.5
    140 reviews

    For those of us who simply can't be bothered to ride MUNI all the way over to GG Park (and, honestly, who can?) The Mission's own Dolores Park, with its gorgeous views out over downtown and the Bay Bridge, is just the place for a spot of urban lounging. With an entire summer season (and sometimes more) of free performances, ...

    Yes, they get crowded as hell, but if you can manage to dodge the masses by coming early or coming late, this specimen of classical oriental landscaping, complete with picturesque pagodas, bridges, and water features is the best the city has to offer.

    97 reviews

    Remember the nervousness you feel in museums trying to not touch anything? Go crazy at Exploratorium, interactive science is exhibited here. Everything from trying to pass your fingers through sparks (then brag about it to your friends), learning how the motion picture works, trying different techniques to compete to create the biggest bubbles, so much fun even for adults! It's ...

    The MoMA is one of my favorite modern art museums anywhere. See Wharhol to Jasper Johns, Matisse to Magritte. The layout is beautiful and the exhibitions are usually amazing.

    Not for everyone, but... If you have a taste for the alternative, let the shops (and unique people) along Haight Street captivate your imagination! Steampunk apparel at Distractions? Herbs for whatever ails you at The Happy High Herb Shop? Galleries, interesting shoes, Ben and Jerry's, LOTS of great vintage shopping!

    I've gone biking along the Embarcadero. It's a beautiful spot to take in new years eve fireworks, july 4th festivities or for a bike/jog/walk. You'll see such great places like the Ferry Building, Bay Bridge and the Financial District.
