Things to do in San Francisco

It’s been a while since my last post describing things to do in California… there are now only 22 days left in the californicatemeter countdown, so let’s get hands-on with the activities!

San Francisco is a major city in California, the centerpiece of the Bay Area, well-known for its liberal community, hilly terrain, Victorian architecture, scenic beauty, and summer fog.


Things to do in San Francisco

  • See, walk through, take an “I’ve been there” photograph and maybe jump of… Golden Gate Bridge.
  • Visit The Castro, the flagship San Francisco gayborhood, known around the world by self-identified gay and non-gay people as the unofficial ‘Capital’ of ‘Queer’ identity.
  • Visit Alcatraz ($25 depending on the tour), the renouned prison a.k.a The Rock. Get tickets well in advance!
  • After the visit we may have lunch in a seafood restaurant in the Fisherman’s Wharf (it’s where you take the ferry to Alcatraz Island)
  • Or we may keep it out of the beaten track and have lunch in China Town. I love boba milk tea. There are also eating tours…! ($40 or $80)
  • See the views from Twin Peaks. Remember the tv serial? Crazy. This Twin Peaks is not the actual location of the serial… sorry.
  • Go the tourist way with the CityPass ($54); includes five attraction admission tickets and unlimited cable car rides.
  • Or pay $75 for a 3 hour segway tour.
  • Find a rare book in the City Lights bookstore
  • Go clubbing to the South Market (SoMa).

  1. Ryan this picture of the Golden Gate Bridge at Night is fantastic. I sure would love to get permission to use it. Can you tell me where you obtained it please?

  2. Hey sorry but I don’t remember. I usually do a simple search in Flickr.
    If it’s here then surely has a creative commons license. Strange I didn’t put the original source though….
    I guessed that by Ryan you meant Naoise
