San Francisco is not only known for the Golden Gate Bridge, Cable Cars, Alcatraz but also a plethora of other activities and dining opportunities. Here are some of our favorites and a few secret tips.
Must See

You are definitely going to want to take a spin on the Cable Cars. Spare yourself a hike up the hill and jump on a cable car instead. It’s a highlight!

Not a secret but definitely a GEM in the city of San Francisco. For only $7 you can enjoy spectacular views of this hilly city when visiting the Coit Tower.

Visit the iconic Victorian houses, the Painted Ladies! Bring a picnic and enjoy the views from the adjacent Alamo Park.

Visit the iconic Alcatraz Island. Explore this historical prison and its history with a tour or go see one of their exhibits.

The Golden Gate Bridge is a MUST SEE when visiting San Francisco. This is one of the most impressive accomplishments of engineering and has been named one of the seven wonders of the modern world. Secret tip: We recommend biking the bridge, so you can explore the view of the city from the other side.

Go visit the Sea Lions by the Fisherman’s Wharf. These seemingly lazy pinnipeds love lounging by Pier 39.
