    Golden Gate Bridge

    842 reviews

    Never gets old. The area around it gets incredibly windy, so dress accordingly. Don't be too upset if the fog blocks your photo because that's common.

    Such an interesting place! You learn so much about its history. And the view of San Francisco isn't bad either :)

    Golden Gate Park

    358 reviews

    Lovely place to meet friends, stretch your aesthetic sense at their many museums, dine finely in the basement of the California Academy of Sciences, play in a biodome surrounded by butterflies and birds, etc. There's always something going on, be it performance art, tour groups. Impromptu sports games, you name it. Also an excellent spot for runners. Make sure you ...

    Fisherman's Wharf

    407 reviews

    It's stinky. It's dirty. It's overpriced. It's touristy. But damn it, I just can't help myself when those crab stands sing a siren's song to draw me down to Fisherman's Wharf! I simply cannot resist a stop here when I'm visiting San Francisco. The stands are pretty much one and the same and all the prices are exactly the same. ...

    AT&T Park

    206 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

    203 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 ...

    A must do activity in San Francisco although you need to push your way to the front of the queue in order to be able to hang onto the outside.

    Lombard Street

    It's definitely unique. If you can ride shotgun, that's the best way to enjoy all the hairpin turns.

    Union Square

    208 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!

    Dolores Park

    139 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, ...

    Coit Tower

    121 reviews

    After a crazy night of partying, my friend gave me and my sis a tour around SF. Not sure what made him think it was a great idea to take us to the coit tower but I'm sure he did that on purpose...asshole. Anywho, it was a great memorable work out. We went up the entire stairs with out sandals, ...

    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 ...

    SF MoMA

    100 reviews

    SF's premiere modern art museum, both the collections here and the cool modern building that houses them are top-notch. Everyone will have a different favorite, but their collection of early modernist painting is particularly fantastic, with great pieces from Rothko, Kahlo and Paul Klee.
