    I went to this place for watching the firework on 4 July. It's amazing. You can see San Francisco city on top view.

    A lot of my friends seem to love Bullitt but I cant really see all the hype. Its an extremely small bar that always seems to be packed. One plus is that they have cheap beer on tap!

    Neat dive bar in the Russian Hill part of Polk Street. I prefer the bars more south, but this is a keeper given the douchiness of some of the other bars nearby.

    Great beer, superb bartenders, reasonable prices. This is a new spot opened by the people behind Cervecería de MateVeza in the Mission. The concept is great beer, Yerba Mate and delicious empanadas (from El Porteño). The place is small so it can fill up, but it's rad! They do a number of special beers at any given moment. The night ...

    San Francisco is known for its foggy days, and so I would go to Fisherman's Wharf on a sunny day. Fisherman's wharf of cousre is down on the water with tons of great restaurants serving fresh seafood.

    Pier is a main tourist attraction with a big draw. Its host to may restaurants and shops. Keep an eye out for the Sea lions and a nice view of the bay and Alcatraz.

    Noisy and lively neighborhood in SF. It's the largest Chinatown outside of Asia, so definitely worth walking through and maybe get something to eat. My Tip: you can get fruits and vegetables a lot cheaper in Chinatown than somewhere else ;)

    I wasn't able to go up the tower & see the murals as they were closed for restoration. The view from up top must be great though.

    Nice spot to wine and dine and take a date for whiskey mixes. It's. Speakeasy, so put the phone away. It's a speak easy so stay cool. It's a speak easy so speak easy and hold eyes with your pair. Bourbon and Branch is a bit of a mystery - trap doors, passwords, and a secret library. Call ahead and ...

    Also known as "Little Italy", the North Beach neighborhood is thriving with cafes, restaurants, and nightlife. Close in proximity to Fisherman Wharf and Chinatown, this is a great place to come enjoy some authentic Italian food. Pictured here is Saints Peters and Paul church.

Put in a quarter and watch the German monkeys play instruments in the style of Herb Alpert. If that's not worth 25 cents then I don't know what ...

    Amazing place with great food ambiance. It dosn't get crowded on a Friday night which is a change and is a good place to switch up the scene from Jones across the street. Looking forward to coming back again after work.

    I came here mainly to view, admire and photograph the architecture and design. I am actually Buddhist, with a great respect for all religions and spiritual paths. With that said, this is a beautiful cathedral. From the steps, to the apparent French Gothic building architecture, to the stain glass windows in the church. I grew up Catholic and when I ...

    Be sure to choose this tour if you want to dock at Alcatraz. There are so many other "tours" out there but this is the only one that can actually dock on the "Rock". It's a quick 15min ride to the island. I came in Oct and neither the ride there or back was over crowded. Snacks and drinks can ...

    Definitely a great place to visit to get a better appreciation of how the cable cars work. It is free, it will only take a couple minutes to visit, and it is well worth it!
