What to do in San Francisco

Visit San Francisco

San Francisco is a city of diverse cultures, beautiful beaches, and unique architecture. Explore neighbourhoods filled with the iconic Victorian houses that the city is famous for. Visit Fisherman's Wharf to browse the stalls and eat at one of the many restaurants with views across San Francisco Bay. Take a boat out to Alcatraz to visit one of the most infamous prisons in the world. Enjoy a stroll along the beach or even go for a swim while admiring the Golden Gate Bridge. The most popular time to visit San Francisco is in the summer months but if you are looking for a great hotel deal, you should try to time your holiday for May or September. The weather is still warm but the crowds are smaller and there are more cheap hotel offers. When looking for a hotel in San Francisco, try the easy-to-use eDreams search engine.

What to see in San Francisco

If you want to make the most of your time in San Francisco, you should try to book a hotel close to your preferred attractions. Fisherman's Wharf is a popular attraction that is home to a market, shops, a range of restaurants and bars, and cute sea lions. Those wishing to escape the crowds can head for a hike within the city at Glen Canyon Park or the Bay Ridge Trail. Art lovers, meanwhile, will enjoy the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art that is home to over 30,000 original artworks. Or take a day trip to the Napa Valley and taste some of the best wines produced in the United States. Walking or cycling over the famous Golden Gate Bridge to enjoy the views across San Francisco Bay is a must-do while in the city. Similarly, don't miss out on seeing the famous "painted ladies", a row of Victorian Houses that are painted in three or more colours and have been featured in over 70 films and TV shows. For yet another quintessential San Francisco experience, take a trip on one of the classic San Francisco cable cars that have been running along 23 routes since the late 1800s - this is perhaps the most fun and practical way to get from your hotel in San Francisco to the majority of attractions.
