Bookstores, bicycles and street art galore! Nothing embodies the ever-changing aura of SF like Mission. As multicultural as it gets, find mouthwatering tacos next to tropical fruit stalls, and cones of artisanal ice cream (hey there, Bi-Rite). Rent a bike and ride from hip Valencia to Dolores Park, where many a sun-kissed afternoon can be spent.

The hustle doesn’t quit downtown. From the early hours through midnight and on, this district is alive and kicking.

You can shop and eat on every corner and take the trolley to any area.

The oldest Chinatown in North America—and the largest Chinese community in the US—blends tradition with tourism. Look around and see what you find. Indulge in dim sum, shop exotic balms, and inspect the live chickens. Stop to smell the Chinese five spices (fennel, cloves and ginger anyone?), and let the chaos of Stockton Street envelope you.

You’ll have plenty of company as you pick through the sights and sounds of the family-friendly Fisherman’s Wharf. Street performers, eclectic cafes and bowls of chowder all fight for your attention. The sea lions of Pier 39 are an all-ages affair, as is the Maritime Historical Park at Hyde Pier. Ferry your way across to the notorious Alcatraz prison.

Ride a cable car to Nob Hill, where Bay views are endless. Victorian houses, designer boutiques and organic bakeries set the tone. The “Painted Ladies” and Gothic Grace Cathedral bring architectural charm from the past. Regardless of its hilltop heights, this neighborhood feels a cut above the rest.

San Francisco buzzes with an energy that guarantees everyone a good time. From hip neighborhoods and historic buildings to beautiful beaches and pristine parks, The Golden City is full of things to do and see.
Start with a shopping spree in Union Square, where luxury boutiques line wide streets and vintage cable cars continue rumbling. Then head over to nearby Chinatown – eight blocks packed with sights for a fun-filled afternoon.
The Embarcadero runs along the waterfront between Bay Bridge and Fisherman’s Wharf, and is famous for landmarks like Pier 39 and the Ferry Building, with its great restaurants and food stalls. Boats depart from this scenic boulevard to Alcatraz Island, just over a mile off the coast. This former federal prison was once home to notorious inmates like Al Capone and "Birdman" Robert Stroud. You can hear stories about their lives, crimes, and escapes on an audio-guided tour of the island.
Back in the Bay Area, the Golden Gate Bridge dominates the landscape. Whether crossing in a car, on a bike or by foot, the natural beauty on the other side is well worth the trek. Muir Woods is an isolated canyon full of ancient redwood trees, and the seaside town of Sausalito offers charming boutiques and sweeping views of the San Francisco Bay.

well it was during covid 19. So that says it all. It was the saddest,dirtiest,homeless every where on every street .It was trulyheart breaking to see so many down and out. Filth everywhere you look. Nothing open. No bathrooms to use any where had to drive 45min. Out of town to go bathroom. Very very sad.
The city is having an identity crisis between wanting to be a hub for the ultra rich or have a heart and keep to it’s roots. It shows. In a variety of ways. Especially during this pandemic. Scenic views wise: Wonderful. A visual treat. Some of California at its finest.
I went to San Francisco for the first time in 2010 and I fell in love with it. I was practically ready to move there. I went back in 2018 and I couldn't believe I was looking at the same city. It's become filthy, questionably safe, and even more expensive. The city has some major issues and the city government is not trying to solve them but rather put a bandaid on them, for example, by allowing people to go to the bathroom on sidewalks or decriminalizing theft under $1,000. If someone breaks into your rental car, the police won't even write a report. The city has some great sights to see but I have absolutely no interest in going back until things improve.
I did not come for a vacation. I only traveled in the city by Uber. I enjoyed seeing all of the lovely homes with little balconies. A couple of drivers took a different route through a lovely park which in my upset state was appreciated instead of the constant stops, starts, of the hills.
It's just the best city in the world. No matter where you from no matter what your culture no matter. Your socialism skills doesn't somewhere for you to fit in. And there's always the type of food that you like. In the weather Doesn't get too hot or cold.
First time in San Francisco, couldnt do much since I was catching my next flight within hours... but it was awesome. Do your research before you go there. It has a little bit of everything and everyone. To liberal tho... but its California
