San Francisco’s Top Tourist Attractions
Whether you’re coming to San Francisco for the first time or are a regular visitor, there are a few must-see sights that never get old, and that you have to see while in the city. While the list could go on and on, here are our top five favorites:
The Golden Gate Bridge
One of the most recognizable landmarks in the world, the Golden Gate Bridge has been attracting visitors since it was first built in 1937. Bike or walk along the 1.7 mile bridge, or drive through it to get a taste of what San Francisco commuters get to experience every day. Aside from the stunning architecture, the views of the bay are also amazing.
Alcatraz Island has a notorious history, and visitors can be a part of it on tours of the prison cells that held criminals like Al Capone. Wander the halls of the prison or take it in from a ferry cruise.
Fisherman’s Wharf is the epitome of the San Francisco lifestyle — seafood, sun, streetcars, shopping, and lots of outdoor seating. Visitors can spend a day watching fishing boats on the bay and sea lions basking in the sun. Make sure to eat at one of the area’s great restaurants, all serving fresh seafood caught that day.
San Francisco’s Chinatown is not only the oldest Chinatown in North America, but also the largest Chinatown outside of Asia. Wander the streets and shops of Chinese dresses and other goods, and stop in one of the many incredible dim sum restaurants.
California Palace of the Legion of Honor
This neoclassical-style palace is a work of art in itself, but even more impressive are the pieces it holds. Gaze on works by Monet, Rodin, and Picasso on display in the palace, which is part of the Fine Arts museum.
