San Francisco is full of world-famous tourist attractions.
The Golden Gate Bridge is almost synonymous with San Francisco. This iconic art deco suspension bridge is easily one of the most famous bridges in the world. Whether you walk or drive, crossing it is a must.
Fisherman’s Wharf is another of San Francisco’s most famous attractions. It might be considered a tourist trap, but there’s always plenty to do, whether you want to shop or visit one of the city’s more unique museums.
If you get hungry, the Ferry Building isn’t far away. The food at this gourmet market will satisfy any foodie’s craving.
San Francisco also boasts several beautiful parks. Dolores Park is small but lively, with a great view of the Mission neighborhood. Lincoln Park is much larger and more rugged, though the park is also home to a golf course and the Legion of Honor museum. There’s also the Yerba Buena Gardens, where you can see the Martin Luther King Jr Memorial Fountain while you enjoy the fresh air.
But the Presidio is the most impressive park in the city. The view of San Francisco Bay and the Golden Gate Bridge can’t be beat.
For the best view of San Francisco itself, you’ll have to make the steep climb up to the top of Telegraph Hill. But San Francisco’s diverse and vibrant beauty can be seen from anywhere in the city.
