Where to stay in San Francisco

About San Francisco

Home to the iconic Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco is known for its hilltop homes, diverse culinary scene and postcard-worthy photo opportunities. The city’s long list of attractions offers something for everyone, whether it’s your first visit or your 50th.

Things to do

For remarkable city views, drive down the famous zig-zagging Lombard Street. If you prefer the cool, salty breezes, take a bike ride over the Golden Gate Bridge to photograph one of the world’s most-famous bridges from its best side. Telegraph Hill offers a similar wow factor with unforgettable views of San Francisco’s skyline.

Explore the city’s unique past by visiting Alcatraz Island. This retired high-security prison was where notorious criminals were once imprisoned, but also offers panoramic city views. For a totally different vibe, pay a visit to Haight-Ashbury, a district with vintage shops, gourmet eateries and 60s hippy culture.

Foodies can indulge in a range of Michelin-starred establishments and also tap into the city’s culinary identity at one of the many farmers’ markets. Sample fresh seafood at Fisherman’s Wharf or tempt your taste buds with authentic Asian cuisine in one of the USA’s best Chinatown areas.

Live like a local and enjoy a picnic at Dolores Park or walk along the kilometre-long sandy shoreline at Baker Beach, home to sea lions. Full House fans should visit Alamo Square to photograph the six candy-coloured Victorian homes called the “Painted Ladies”. A 25-minute drive across the Golden Gate Bridge takes you to the seaside town of Sausalito for seafood and a relaxed vibe.

Getting Around

It’s best to explore San Francisco on foot or use local transportation. Most attractions are within walking distance to the city centre, while buses and the BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) subway system are quick and affordable. For a more iconic way to traverse the city, hop on one of the famous cable cars to see the sights at a slower pace. Ferries are also great for getting out onto the bay and enjoying unique views of the city.
