    Seward Street Slides

    Seward Street & Douglass Street, San Francisco, CA 94114
    8 reviews

    These are concrete slides in a little park called Seward Park. They're free and fun, but make sure to take some cardboard to use for the slides, otherwise, your jeans/pants/legs will not be that grateful.

    101 6th St., San Francisco, CA 94103
    42 reviews

    Something here for everyone, with three bars on two levels, Victorian style craft cocktail lounge when you first come in with a new high end addition cocktail bar in the back. When you decide to venture into the mysterious rave cave downstairs in the club level, your brain can't help but dance the night away in the underground house scene ...

    The Embarcadero

    1 Embarcadero Center, San Francisco, CA, United States
    97 reviews

    One of our favorite places to visit is all along the Embarcadero. If you can keep your wallet in your pocket, you could spend a few hours just in the Ferry Building Marketplace, drooling over giant mushrooms or artisanal cheeses, or exploring the huge Sunday Farmer's Market. Bring a bicycle, a pair of inline skates, or just your feet and ...

    De Young Museum

    50 Hagiwara Tea Garden Drive, San Francisco, CA, United States
    85 reviews

    Everything inside of here is one of a kind and as close to priceless as it gets. On a clear day, you can see the entire city from atop the observation deck. And when the fog rolls in, it comes right at your eye level

    Fort Funston

    Skyline Boulevard, San Francisco, CA, United States
    25 reviews

    Ah, Fort Funston. Fort Funston is a short hop off off skyline drive and a nice stop along the 49 mile scenic route around San Francisco. At For Funston you can expect fantastic views of the Pacific and the faces of cliffs, dogs running wild, and guys on hang gliders and speed parachutes.

    Cable Car Museum

    1201 Mason Street, San Francisco, CA, United States
    19 reviews

    One of my favorite San Francisco museums. Quirky, fun, but moving social history of the cable car. You learn a lot about the city's history into the bargain.

    Twin Peaks

    85 reviews

    The view is amazing, parking is not that bad, and this place is really easy to find. A great place to relax, have picnic lunch, or just to get some air.

    Lands End Trail

    Lands End Trail, San Francisco, CA 94121
    65 reviews

    With Pacific Ocean shipwrecks visible in low tide and a rock-hewn meditative labyrinth, the 3.4-mile Lands End Trail is not your average hiking path. The trail is at the far edges of San Francisco's northwestern end, so the fog and wind can pick up quickly (especially in the afternoon), making this feel like even more of an adventure.

    Pier 14 is a pedestrian walkway that provides a great opportunity to view downtown San Francisco from a more impressive perspective. As you step out into the water, you'll be rewarded with beautiful views of the Oakland Bay Bridge, the Ferry Building and more.

    Lucky 13

    2140 Market Street, San Francisco, CA
    12 reviews

    This Market Street dive has its appeal for anyone: a large selection of local microbrews and rare imports on tap and by the bottle; strong, affordable cocktails; free fresh-popped popcorn; a pool table; a charming outdoor smoking area; and retro arcade games upstairs on the balcony. But I love its punk rock roots. Everywhere there are posters from shows the ...

    Corona Park gives one of the best views of the city. Fantastic for an afternoon hike. Hike up to the view then down to Randall Museum for some educational fun for the little kids.

    Alcatraz Island

    Golden Gate National Recreation Area Fort Mason, B201 San Francisco, CA 94123
    389 reviews

    This is one of the tourist requests from friends visiting and one visit is sufficient. I'm a firm believer of why pay to see a prison, when you can commit a crime and go for free. All kidding aside, this was an informative historical excursion and you experience first hand how claustrophobic each cell is minus the scary prisoners.
