San Francisco Travel Tips

  • A trip to San Francisco is an unforgettable
    experience. Whether you visit the city for
    business or pleasure, there are lots of ways to
    make your visit memorable and less expensive. One
    way to do that is to include on your itinerary
    many of the free activities and activities that
    are within walking distance. This will give you a
    chance to see the side of San Francisco Bay Area
    residents love.

  • If you are a first time visitor to San
    Francisco, there are some things you must make
    time to see. They include the Golden Gate Bridge,
    Fisherman's Wharf, Alcatraz, and Chinatown.
    However, the time of day you visit these places
    can significantly impact your experience. Many
    people say between midday and early afternoon is
    the best time to see the Golden Gate Bridge
    because the fog will be gone. Others say sunset
    if it's not too foggy.

  • For Fisherman's Wharf, on the other hand, early
    in the morning gives you the most authentic
    experience. You can watch the fishing boats make
    their way to shore and unload their catch. If you
    are more interested in street performers,
    vendors, and large crowds, then evenings and
    weekends are the time to visit. No matter when
    you go, the food is fantastic.

  • When visiting Alcatraz, the Early Bird trip is
    best if you want to explore the island. However,
    in the late morning and early afternoon there are
    more guided tours and lecturers. Lunchtime or
    later is always a good time to visit Chinatown.
    That's especially true on Saturdays. That's the
    day the locals do their shopping at the markets
    on Stockton Street near Columbus. This deep,
    immersive cultural experience will make you feel
    you've been transported to China. It's magical.

6
  • But there's much more to see. Visit the San
    Francisco Botanical Gardens with its 8,000
    different plants and hundred-year-old redwoods.
    Take a hike on the Presidio. See the Painted
    Ladies of Alamo Square. Take a sports fishing
    excursion. Peruse the many museums in the San
    Francisco Maritime National Park. You can even
    visit the Yerba Buena Gardens, Gold Rush sites,
    and Haight-Ashbury.

7
  • When you're tired of the tourist trail, take a
    moment to stroll along the shores of the Pacific
    Ocean and enjoy myriad peaceful sights and
    sounds. Waves crashing on the shore, seabirds
    run-hop-flying along the beach plucking snacks
    out of the sand, surf, and sea, and the brilliant
    sky above. Walk down to Fort Funston and sit on
    the wooden deck. Explore rocky Lands End where
    the ocean meets Golden Gate. Watch the shorebirds
    in the marsh at Crissy Field or stand on the pier
    and observe the sea lions.
  • Breathe deep and smile. Welcome to San
    Francisco.
