Every neighborhood in San Francisco has its own personality, from the hippie chic of the Upper Haight to the hipster grit of the Mission. The Marina district boasts trendy bistros and postcard-perfect views of the Golden Gate Bridge, while Noe Valley offers quaint and quiet boutiques. Wave hello to the sea lions at Pier 39, and sample local cheese and charcuterie at the Ferry Building. Sit in on a yoga session in Dolores Park or marvel at the Dutch Windmill across from Ocean Beach.

Stretching 4,200 feet and towering as high as a 65-story building, this well-known bridge is the gateway to San Francisco.
The Golden Gate Bridge is definitely worth seeing but I didn't find it spectacular. It is a very well known landmark of San Francisco, so if you are visiting San Francisco, it is worth seeing to say that you have been there and done that.

Park rangers conduct tours by recounting the prison's thrilling history along with intriguing anecdotes about Al Capone and other legendary figures that made a "home" here.
Wow. Excellent tour of Alcatraz. Exceeded my expectations. The free audio tour was awesome. The only negative was that you couldn't pause the audio tour device. Once you start the play button, it plays until the end. This was inconvenience because there were some times where you'd like to stay a little longer to look around at a specific area. Also, it can get crowded with everyone standing around at each location waiting for the audio tour to tell you to move to the next attraction spot.
After the audio tour you're free to roam around and see the entire island. My favorite was the recreation yard. Unfortunately, a lot of the old guard towers are gone now due to neglect.
I'd definitely like to do this again, maybe a guided tour or a night tour.

Since 1873, cable cars have run up and down the hilly city, though after the 1950s, these cars have been kept in operation more out of historic nostalgia. Seventeen miles of track remain and have been deemed a historical landmark.
These iconic cable cars are a must if visiting San Francisco, either one journey and a weekly pass a great way to travel up some of those hills.

Known as the "crookedest" street in the world, the steep hills and sharp curves of this one-way road pass by grand Victorian mansions and attract millions of tourists each year.
Definitely recommend getting an uber or the tram to Lombard Street. The walk up is very steep.
We had a very accommodating Uber driver on our first journey who kindly agreed to drive us down the zigzag.
The following day we had a less accommodating Uber driver who didn’t drop us where we hoped and had a very steep walk up to take photos of cars coming down the hill.
Literally a 5 minute visit is needed nothing more. Fun to see and whizz down with a driver who knows what they are doing.

From amazing views and a sea of sea lions to chowder bread bowls and California wines, your visit to San Francisco starts at PIER 39. Kick off your visit by exploring two levels of dining, entertainment, shopping and attractions, all surrounded by unbeatable views of the city and the bay. Take it from the world famous sea lions: a visit to San Francisco starts at The PIER.
By far the best part was watching the sea lions early in the morning. Inside the pier are a ton of shops and places to eat.We are so glad you enjoyed your time with the Sea Lions at PIER 39 and look forward to welcoming you back again soon!

Our family has toured several breweries, but this was our favorite. Lots of history behind the company and the tour is 1 1/2 hours long with ample beer tasting along the way. Our guide was great, answered all our questions and some of the staff ended up in the tasting room after our tour and answered more questions. Be sure to make reservations ahead of time. Cost is $25/person.

Historic Fisherman's Wharf is the classic San Francisco experience where you will find a range of hotels, specialty restaurants, famous attractions, unique shops, breathtaking scenery and entertainment for the whole family.
The only reason you might visit here is if it’s something on your bucket list but it’s best to scratch it off and not visit. It’s a pure tourist trap, nothing but less than quality restaurants, homeless people, and stands trying to sell you overpriced est on the run seafood.

At the northwestern corner of San Francisco, there is a series of stunning views at every turn in this wild and windy trail. Hillsides of cypress and wildflowers, views of shipwrecks and access to the ruins of Sutro baths, a San Francisco specials memory.
The beauty that is San Francisco awaits you at every step as you hike along the paths at Lands End. Be sure to bring a camera!
