1. Ride across the Golden Gate Bridge
Blue sky and weather warm enough for a bike ride on such a winters day… It’s worth it a thousand times, such a enjoyable experience and the views… oh! Breathtaking!

2. Union Square Shopping
Apart from the one on the corner of Union Square (Powell St), there’s another store one block away from it and a lot less crowded (located at Stockton St x Market St).
3. Cable car ride
If you are staying for a few days it is worth it to get a weekly pass (they allow you ride most of public transport, including the Cable car, which one single ride can cost you US$6).
Creepy tour. But worth it and interesting. Book at least one week in advance, or you might miss it.
5. Fisherman’s Wharf
I heard from most locals to avoid this place because it is the most touristic place in town. Well, I was a tourist myself, so I had to check this out. In fact, I ended up coming here three our four times, since most of the tourist things to do started here (such as the bike ride, the Alcatraz cruise, etc.)
The whole waterfront of piers is a tourist sight. You can walk along it to see:
- The Port of San Francisco (where cruise ships come and go)
Pier 39 (Where the sea lions gather themselves)
Ferry Building Market
Alcatraz Cruise tour
There’s an Applebee’s on the left hand side once you get to the end of the piers.
You can get a cable car all the way back to the city
See, with so many things to do and see on Fisherman’s Wharf you won’t want to miss it.
6. Silicon Valley and Mount View Must Do’s
7. Conservatory of Flowers
It’s closed on Mondays. So make sure you don’t make the same mistake I did.

9. Disney Family Museum
10. California Academy of Sciences
