    Golden Gate Bridge

    4.5
    842 reviews

    A definite must see and most popular attraction when visiting SF. You can get nice views of the bridge from both the SF and Marin sides. The parking lots can get real busy on the weekends. I am always in awe when I see this bridge up close.

    Fisherman's Wharf

    407 reviews

    This is considered the touristy part of San Francisco. Some highlights include listening to the barking seals at the pier. A lot of shops dot this area, selling souvenirs and jackets (yes jackets!). Few people visiting the city realize how chilly it can get.

    Good place to explore but the food is very expensive! It's better to go to China town and get same kind of food with the reasonable price!

    Riding a Cable Car

    4.5
    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.

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

    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.

    Exploratorium

    4.5
    98 reviews

    If you're anything like me and wildly excited by hands-on-applications of SCIENCE then you definitely want to check out the Exploratorium. The exhibits are rotated frequently so no trip is the same. The tactile dome is an adventure in the dark (IE the place to go and make-out if you've a partner in crime).

    SF MoMA

    4.5
    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.
