    Golden Gate Bridge

    851 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.

    Alcatraz Island

    Good place for photograhper. You can get a ferry ticket online but have to wait in line. I went there over the weekend. It got crowded. If you have a chance to visit, you should get there 30 mins before ferry depart.

    AT&T Park

    211 reviews

    I sang the National Anthem here once, shortly after 9/11, and it was one of the greatest experiences of my life. The park is gorgeous, both from the field up and from the top down. As a concert venue, it's as functional as any stadium, albeit cleaner and with slightly fancier food options. The surrounding area is quite beautiful as ...

    Ferry Building Marketplace

    205 reviews

    Ok, i'm a foodie, so for me this was the best place in San Francisco. I was in SF for 5 days and I came back here about 3 times just to eat. The Ferry Building is a very large farmer's/organic/food market, where you just happen to take the ferry. There are a couple of days during the week when ...

    Riding a Cable Car

    202 reviews

    Definitely one of the best things to do in San Francisco. It can be very crowded at a cable car turntable, but I have enjoyed while waiting!

    Lombard Street

    213 reviews

    Lombard Street is a great sight to see. Very picturesque, especially in the spring when flowers are blooming alongside the zig-zag street. I wouldn't recommend driving down it yourself unless you're accustomed to driving on hills! Even a 5 minute visit here just to see it is worth it.

    Union Square

    215 reviews

    Great place in downtown San Francisco for free festivals and shows. Been to quite a few events hear from salsa to Korean art festivals. The hearts that they recently put up seem to be a real tourist attraction where tourists always take pictures of themselves with them.

    San Francisco's Chinatown is huge. There is so much to see and do, and it's quite easy to pick out a place to eat as the restaurant and street vendors are everywhere. Don't be afraid of hole-in-the-walls! I was there in late February, and it wasn't as packed with people as I've heard it can get.

    Japanese Tea Garden

    The Japanese Tea Garden is a pleasant place to stop in for a stroll. The gardens are very nice and peaceful, except perhaps on busy weekends when it is often full of people. Enjoy a break for tea and cookies then browse the gift shop.

    Coit Tower

    122 reviews

    Over the years, I have experienced Coit Tower in many ways - From the Filbert Steps, over from a Friend's apartment on Telegraph Hill, during a running event that ended at the Top, as a way to burn off calories after a North Beach dinner, relaxing on the back lawn, enjoying the architecture and parrots, watching the Blue Angels during ...

    I came here for Exploratorium After Dark with some coworkers. For $15, this is quite the experience! The space is large and there are quite a few things to check out, interact with, and learn about. It was kind of like a many things to look at! It got pretty crowded around 8pm. There's easy access to Pier 15 ...

    SF MoMA

    100 reviews

    The SF MoMa is my favorite museum in the city--it's a got a great (and varied) permanent collection and typically has interesting temporary exhibits too. Depending on your mood, it's an easy place to spend a couple hours or an entire day. And if you're looking for a unique gift/memento/impulse buy, the gift shop is a good bet.
