San Francisco—Where Do I Start?

San Francisco is a unique and special city, and with proper research, you can conquer the metropolis with no problems. The tip is to start at the beginning.

For instance, the most famous part of San Francisco is Fisherman’s Wharf. Some call it hokey, but most enjoy the attractions. You can stroll on Pier 39 and watch the sea lions, sip an Irish coffee at the Buena Vista Café or stroll the neighborhood and look out for Bushman.

And you can do all this while waiting for your adventure to Alcatraz Island.

Then, after a short research session, you can choose to follow our Day 1 itinerary and ride a bike across the Golden Gate Bridge. Or, if you’re not into exercise, you can follow Day 2 and head to Haight-Ashbury, the hippie part of town. You might smell marijuana or see homeless people, but the neighborhood offers so much more, including the history of the Summer of Love and the gateway to Golden Gate Park.

You also can see a pro sports game, visit a free museum or walk the streets of San Francisco and soak up the cultural street art.

Truthfully, in San Francisco, almost whatever you can imagine, you can do.

The public transport is not hard to manage, either, and the lookouts are scenery you’ll find nowhere else. Even if you need a late night snack, we’ve got you covered. If you review our Advice section properly, we can help you conquer San Francisco in style.

Not convinced yet? The city also offers parrots in the trees, an unusual cold weather pattern in summer and events such as Bay to Breakers and the Folsom Street Fair.

All these things together can provide a lasting impression of San Francisco for you as a traveler. The trick is to know what’s available and to be prepared.
