    Golden Gate Bridge

    843 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

    408 reviews

    This is a very touristy place. I'm not really partial to any of the eating places here as I feel that it doesn't have any soul. Having said that, it's a nice place to entertain the kids. They love watching the sea lions lounging on the deck, and the carousel ride.

    Union Square

    209 reviews

    Union Square is the nexus of SF's significant tourist economy: the swank hotels, the chic department stores and clothiers, the art galleries that neither you nor anyone you've ever met could possibly afford to buy from. It's a place absolutely saturated with all the trappings of upscale tourist zones the world over. Even so, there's a real beauty to walking ...

    California Academy Of Sciences

    142 reviews

    Nightlife at the Academy draws a big crowd every Thursday (really great date spot). It's hard to beat the aquarium, Eco-center, and omnimax theater combo, but I'm not sure why you'd want to. Those are top notch features - as is being able to watch legitimate scientist perform legit science right in front of you.

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 ...

    If you close your eyes, you can start to picture what Haight-Ashbury used to be. The reality is quite different, though. It's now a tourist trap. Go elsewhere for a taste of the 60s.
