There is a reason why so many people have to leave their hearts in San Francisco and why that is much more than just the lyrics from a popular song. As soon as you step foot in this amazing city, you will be automatically floored by a wide range of different things that you can do and see while you are there. Here are just a few of the things that you should put on your to-do list.
The Golden Gate Bridge should truly be one of your first stops because it has become synonymous with San Francisco. Being able to see it from afar is great because you are able to experience the bridge firsthand from a distance. However, you should make sure that you at least have the experience of driving on that bridge for yourself because that is truly an experience all on its own. If you are into the La Vie Bohemia theme, then you belong in the Mission District because you will truly feel at home while you are there. Don’t forget to ride on cable cars during your visit, because you will never look at public transportation the same way again.
Union Square is something that you definitely want to experience at any time – day or night – while you are in San Francisco but if you are interested in beautiful landscaping then you can visit Nob Hill and Russian Hill to satisfy those desires while you are there.
If you are a huge fan of history and want to learn a lot while you are in San Francisco, then you should plan a trip to the Palace of Fine Arts which has an abundance of displays that you can visit and explore today. However, if you want a historical experience that you will not be able to enjoy anywhere else in the world, then you need to take a trip out to Alcatraz to explore that historical prison firsthand.
