What to Do in San Francisco

If you're wondering what to do in San Francisco, all you need to do is step outside your door. There are so many attractions in this relatively small city.

For starters, you can visit the landmark Transamerica Pyramid. It is the tallest and most recognizable skyscraper in the San Francisco skyline.

See City Hall

Another gorgeous piece of architecture worth looking at is the gilded dome that tops San Francisco's City Hall.

Look at the Painted Ladies

Don't forget to visit Alamo Square to see the picturesque Victorian houses painted in pastel colors. This row is known as the "Painted Ladies."

Stop in Justin Plaza

Justin Plaza is just one of the many squares where there is often a festival of some type going on. Thanks to the lack of snow and ice, you can find outdoor entertainment year-round in the Bay Area.

Hike Telegraph Hill

Bring comfortable shoes and get some exercise while you sightsee. You can view the entire city when you hike up some of the hilly trails in or near Golden Gate Park.

Spend an hour at the beach

San Francisco's beaches are unlike most in California. Most feature steep cliffs and rocky shores and can be hard to get to. However, it's worth the trek to see the breathtaking views of the ocean.
