This is a great city with lots to do. Here is a list of must do's when you are there -Alcatraz Island - Golden Gate Bridge Tour - Market Street shopping - PIers / Warf - SS Jerimiah OBrian - Cable Cars - China Town - Golden Gat Park Seagway Tour (AMAZING) Watch out for the homless people, keep moving don't stand still in the street.
At night where a puffy jacket and keep your hands in your pockets..
Please go beyond 2 nights. 3-5 nights is the minimum for you to enjoy San Francisco. The must visit places are Alcatraz, Pier 39 and Fisherman's Wharf (they said it's the 2nd most visited places after Disneyland), Golden Gate Bridge, and Union Square (for shopping paradise).
If you have limited time, please do hop on hop off bus tour on your first day so you have the idea what are the places you really want to visit. Try to ride on the cable car even only once. Tips for travelers: please don't think summer months (June-August) are hot in San Francisco because it's foggy. When the fog comes, the temperature drops. End of September to early October is nice since it's warmer. When it's warm (no fog) you'll be able to see the view clearly (Golden Gate, etc). Also, enjoy the free fireworks show every Saturday in October (you may go on evening tour on a boat to see the it with the city skyline as the background). When you have more days, go for a walk in Presidio Park and visit the museums.
Fun city, some cool things to check out. Get the CityPass if there for more than a few days, well worth the money- for $94 you get public transport for a week, Alcatraz, Exploratorium, California Academy of Science and the Aquarium.
San Francisco is a filthy city that is saturated with the homeless on nearly every street. Its buildings are decadent although some may find that appealing because it has "character.
" The city is occupied with a stench that makes driving down I-5 an aromatic pleasure. The city does have its positives as well. There are numerous types of cuisines available that cater to the frugal and the upscale diner. One will not have difficulty in identifying a restaurant that caters to their needs. The city has tons of venues that play live music. Addtionally, multiple sports franchises are located nearby.
The Chinatown within San Francisco is one of the oldest Chinese enclaves in the world. You can find eateries that offer surprisingly good quality cuisine at reasonable prices there.
I love San Francisco! There's so much to do and see (Golden Gate Bridge, Bay Bridge, Union Square, Fisherman's Warf, Alcatraz, Pershing Square, Chinatown, Palace of Fine Arts, etc.
..). I love the weather in SF and just love SF!
Taxi drivers are nice, though I heard that San Francisco has the most expansive taxi fare, even higher than New York City, so try to use other transportation as much as possible.
Nice city, great public transport, major tourist attractions are accessible by public transport. Good idea to purchase city pass to have unlimited travel on public transport.
Shopping is great
Nice place. Well worth a visit. Much more relaxed than New York. Has its problems,ie, its homeless population and we found a lot of the streets to be littered and run down.
Get out the city everything you need to see is outer sub areas witch are much nicer it's easy to just get in the car go for a drive out to find cheap parking everywhere.
Highly recommend the parks .
Downtown, near Aida hotel is so bloody filthy and dirty and the smell is terrible, there seem to be more, and more homeless hanging around that area, it's unbelievable.
San Francisco is amazing destination for who like metropolitan city as well as nature, many different shopping area and attractions especially in Fisherman Wharf areas
San Francisco is a food paradise, you may want to visit Fisherman's wharf to eat seafood, its fresh and price is reasonable, but expect to queue before eating.
Great places to see and lots to do. Make sure you hire bikes and ride from fisherman's wharf over the Golden Gate Bridge the get the ferry back great day
The best places to visit are Japantown, Chinatown, Nob Hill, Financial District, AT&T Park. Make sure to see the jewel of the city, Queen Anne Hotel.
Stay away from the Fisherman's Wharf, Haight Ashbury Street and O'Farrell Street. Keep in mind that the impression of the city will be dictated by the purpose of your trip.
I want to stay here with my family ! Great city with lots to do as a couple or a family. Close to nature, exciting city and friendly to new ideas
Walking around is so easy in San Francisco. Get a bus pass and hop on and off at your leisure. Most beautiful city in the USA in my opinion.
San Francisco is a diversified city, with fine weather and beautiful scenary. People are friendly. Public transport is convenient.
The fisherman wharf is lovely. Spring sale in department stores is attrative and worth for money.
SF is good, especially all the Piers. City cleanliness is not what i expected though (being a city of a well developed nation).
I've been traveling to San Francisco for the last 50 years it never gets old, I will continue to enjoy all it has to offer.
Ask taxi driver to tour you around and to visit different property area (remember to visit Hillsborough for comparision!)
THE DIFFERENT HOMES IN THE LOCATION IN DIFFERENT PARTS OF THE CITY. VICTORIAN, THE BEACH HOUSES, EVERYTHING WAS UNIQUE,
SAN FRANCISCO IS RELATIVELY SMALL. BUT ITS QUITE A DISTINCT CITY, WITH ITS CLOSE PROXIMITY TO THE SEA AND ITS HISTORY.
IT ALSO HAS INVESTED A LOT IN TOURISM AND THE TOURS SERVICES AND THE SITES THEMSELVES ARE WORTH SPENDING YOUR TIME IN. VARIETY IN CULTURE IS ALSO QUITE EVIDENT IN THE AMAZING CUISINES AVAILABLE
It's a beautiful city with a colourful history that can be seen while visiting the many attractions it has to offer.
There is so much to do and see, we absolutely loved it. Great restaurants, beautiful scenery and of course the Golden Gate bridge and Bay Harbour bridge which are amazing to see. Transport is plentiful and walking to various places wasn't so bad either. A very easy city to navigate around and a lot to do outside of the city as well.
Nice place to travel to for short sight seeing trips. Most of the nicer places to visit is outside of San Fran city.
Loved the city. nice laidback feel with rolling streets. everything is convenient and close by to the city centre.
alcatraz island and fishermans wharf are the must goes.
Go to fisherman's market and have some clam chowder at stand. You do not necessarily have to get in restaurants.
The tram driver was really friendly and told me a lot about San Francisco. It was another great experience.
Stayed on Market St. near the Civic Center. Bad smell (due to urine) and dirty streets. Walk at your own risk.
Premier city to visit - great opportunities for interesting cuisine, good nightlife, unique neighborhoods.
Much to see in the surrounding areas - Marin County and the beaches, towns of the Peninsula and trails/beaches there, Monterey and Big Sur also not too far away.
Need to stay more than 3 day for discover the places in San Francisco. The people was nice and helpful.
The important things was the traffic was not busy and you can drive you card to experience the "hill road" but need to watch out the road sign as in San Francisco has a lot one way road.
