San Francisco Travel Guide Intro

pretitle
Title
Your Complete Guide to San Francisco A Must-Do List for the City by the Bay
Description

Just under 10 percent of the size of Los Angeles, San Francisco’s seven-by-seven square miles will keep you busy discovering new things for days or even weeks. The Pacific Ocean-adjacent windy city is flooded with historic attractions, incredible museums, small independent businesses, Michelin-starred restaurants, colorful Victorian architecture, and nature trails galore. No matter what you have in mind—art, food and drinks, live music, or outdoor adventures in the city, SF offers a really diverse and distinct perspective to travel and everyday living in California. 

Sort Order

Description

There are the classic San Francisco attractions like riding the cable car to Lombard so you can see the city’s most crooked street for yourself, or visiting the San Francisco Public Library to browse through books and check out the stunning architecture. But there are also so many other fun and quirky attractions in SF that make this city unlike any other. Head to Pier 45 at Fisherman’s Wharf to run through dozens of vintage arcade games. Musée Mécanique, a penny arcade that’s been family-owned and operated since 1933, has over 300 machines.

 

Make a pit stop at City Lights, a landmark indie bookstore, and The Beat Museum—which has been sharing the Beat Generation’s story with visitors since 2003—right across the street. If you’re in the mood to shop, a must visit is Heath Ceramics, where you can purchase tchotchkes for loved ones and kitchenware for yourself.

 

A visit to the Sutro Baths ruins will take your breath away. Wear sneakers, a light jacket, and plan to go for a mini hike on the Lands End trail. On a clear day, you’ll enjoy Golden Gate Bridge views for miles.

 

Delve into the dynamic realms of contemporary art at SFMOMA, where pieces by artists like Yayoi Kusama and Jackson Pollock will captivate the imagination. Then, venture into the natural wonders of the California Academy of Sciences, where science and sustainability converge in a blend of aquariums, planetarium shows, and interactive exhibits.

 

Don’t forget to explore the bohemian enclave (and world-famous intersection) of San Francisco’s Haight-Ashbury neighborhood. Stroll along streets adorned with colorful Victorian houses, and discover a treasure trove of vintage and music shops, luxury boutiques, street art, and hip cafes. Immerse yourself in the 1960s scene that defined a generation of free spirits, artistic expression, peace, and love.

Description

Experience luxury and sophistication in the heart of downtown at the Intercontinental San Francisco, which is conveniently located next to the Moscone Convention Center and a quick walk to SF’s financial district and some of the city’s best shops, museums, bars, and restaurants. Boasting modern elegance and impeccable service, plus guest rooms that combine relaxing colors with gorgeous city skyline views, this hotel offers easy access to top attractions, which makes it an ideal stay for both leisure and business travelers.

 

Atop Nob Hill, the InterContinental Mark Hopkins San Francisco is a  historic gem exuding charm and contemporary comforts. Here, you’ll enjoy sweeping views of the city, the very best service, and a central (but also quieter) location that puts you within steps of San Francisco's renowned cultural and culinary delights. No wonder it was voted one of "The Best 5 Hotels in San Francisco" by Travel + Leisure. Relax the minute you enter this hotel’s grand lobby, filled with flowers, gorgeous chandeliers, and sky-high ceilings. In this area, you won’t want to miss the the Cable Car Museum, Huntington Park, and Grace Cathedral, a stunning Gothic-style church, which is more recently famous not just for its architecture but also for hosting Beyonce Mass, a service by women, for women, that uses Beyonce’s music and personal life to cultivate an empowering dialogue centered on Black women’s experiences, bodies, and voices.

 

More of a hidden gem than our other hotels in the city, Kimpton Hotel Enso embraces the vibrant energy of Japantown. This property strikes the perfect balance between California cool and traditional Japanese design elements, creating an atmosphere that’s really calming, relaxed, and welcoming. The property even stands by the idea of “omotenashi,” the most important aspect of Japanese hospitality: to take care of guests fully without expecting anything in return. Come for the daily hosted wine hour and complimentary coffee and tea in the mornings, stay for a peaceful and rejuvenating minimalist hotel experience that includes Shibori-inspired pillows in each guest room, high-end toiletries, and a neighborhood rich in renowned restaurants, beautiful gardens and historical landmarks (Peace Plaza and Peace Pagoda), and even an annual cherry blossom festival in the spring.

 

Be seduced by San Francisco's waterfront at the Kimpton Alton Hotel. Located in the heart of Fisherman's Wharf, this boutique property offers both coastal charm and urban sophistication, providing guests with an unforgettable experience amidst the city's iconic sights and sounds. Guest rooms here are sleek and retro-inspired, with Victrola record players to set the mood. Open the blinds and take in those gorgeous bay views—its waterfront (and waterfront sunsets) is what makes the city so recognizable, after all.

Description

If any city is known for its incredible food, it’s San Francisco, and the melting pot of cultures makes it one of the most food-forward cities in the country (not to mention California being home to the most Michelin Stars in the US). Restaurant reservations for hotspots and crowd favorites should absolutely be on your radar ahead of your visit. From fast casual to fine dining, bread, burritos, seafood, coffee, and more—you really will find it all here!

 

The award-winning Luce restaurant is a must whether or not you decide to stay at the Intercontinental San Francisco. The critically-acclaimed restaurant serves contemporary Mediterranean European cuisine and features varied flavors using local ingredients. The wine menu itself is vast—you’ll find yourself enveloped by pages and pages of drink options, including half bottles of wine for those dining solo, as a couple, or those who just want to try a few different things. 
 

Choose between two phenomenal restaurants when visiting the Intercontinental Mark Hopkins San Francisco. Nob Hill Club, located on the lobby level, presents a carefully curated menu of American and Mediterranean-inspired dishes. It’s open for breakfast and lunch every day, as well as Tuesday through Saturday for dinner. Then there’s Top of the Mark, on the hotel’s 19th floor. Welcoming guests since the 1930s, this classic American restaurant stuns with beautiful views of iconic SF landmarks like Alcatraz, the Golden Gate Bridge, and the Transamerica Pyramid, a 48-story, pyramid-shaped, futurist skyscraper, which is also one of the tallest buildings along the city’s skyline. The small plates menu consists of charcuterie boards, caviar, various flatbreads, and more, while the well-rounded drinks list includes craft cocktails, bubbles, beer, and wines from all over. Open daily, Top of the Mark charges a cover fee on Saturdays when there is live music.
 

From seasoned local chefs, Abacá spotlights contemporary Filipino-Californian cuisine inside the Kimpton Alta Hotel. Francis and Diane Ang—a husband and wife team—pay tribute to their heritage by recreating family recipes like Lola’s Pork Lumpia. They even feature Filipino-inspired cocktails, including the ube colada and a passion fruit mimosa, on their drinks menu. Reservations at the James Beard–nominated restaurant aren’t required, but recommended. Walk-ins are welcome based on availability.

 

If there’s anywhere in San Francisco where you must order from the raw bar, it’s Hog Island Oyster Co. In the historic Ferry Building Marketplace right on the water, the restaurant is known for its ever-changing oyster menu (West Coast mollusks only from states like California and Washington) and grilled oysters if you’re feeling a little less adventurous, paired with white wine or champagne.

 

Since the 1990s, La Taqueria in San Francisco’s Mission neighborhood has been serving stripped-down, back to basics tacos for lunch. Known for having one of the best burritos in the country, the cash only restaurant has even won a James Beard America’s Classic award for its timeless appeal and quality dishes. Drop by early—there may or may not be a line out the door, but it’s always worth the wait.

 

The Ice Cream Bar is exactly what it sounds like! Mixologists, but for ice cream sodas, have been serving ice cream and bakery items here for nearly 100 years. Step back in time for some good old fashioned butterscotch or mint chip. The Ice Cream Bar makes everything in house using locally-sourced dairy and other ingredients.

 

Coffee & Tea

 

Sightglass Coffee will deliver your caffeine fix and warm your soul. The SF-born shop has multiple outposts, but the Mission location is the coziest and is also close to other attractions like Heath Ceramics and Trick Dog, a neighborhood craft cocktail bar, which is a Spirited Award winner, a James Beard finalist, and one of the World’s 50 Best Bars). Sightglass now has a shop in Los Angeles, too.

 

If tea is more your speed, you must get in for a tasting at Red Blossom Tea Company in Chinatown. Being the oldest and largest Chinatown in the US outside of Asia, this neighborhood is more than just the Dragon’s Gate. Discover souvenir shops, bakeries, and moody karaoke bars and craft cocktail bars while in the area.

Description

Visit the famed Oakland Vintage Market on the first Saturday of every month for unique decor, clothing, and other finds. Or catch a game or event at the Oakland Coliseum, and indulge in diverse dining options reflecting the city's cultural mix. Oakland is just 20 minutes by car from San Francisco.

 

A 20-minute car ride from San Francisco, Berkeley is a college town through and through. Home to the University of California and where the 1960s Free Speech Movement began, the town is buzzing with a forward-thinking, anything-can-happen energy. On campus, catch a football game at the iconic California Memorial Stadium. Peruse the shops, music stores, and cafes on Telegraph Avenue or get tickets to a show at the al fresco Hearst Greek Theatre. Explore the rich arts scene in a town that has a substantial number of graduate programs—120 to be exact.

 

A welcoming community also just a half-hour drive from San Francisco, San Mateo offers a mix of cultural events, outdoor recreation, and diverse dining options. Here, you’ll surely want to explore the picturesque Japanese Garden, or hike the Sawyer Camp Trail. Every Tuesday night between May and October you can shop for fresh food and local produce at the 25th Avenue Farmers Market.

 

Or you might choose instead to experience the charm of Redwood City, just 40 minutes from San Francisco by car. Known for its thriving tech scene, beautiful parks, and a flourishing culinary scene, RC has a walkable City Square, which hosts yearly events like Oktoberfest, Music on the Square, and more.
