CaitanyaSeasoned traveller out of practice due to job and COVID. Looking for travel buddy for safety reasons (power in numbers) and shared experience
TatianaI’m starting to delve into the world of solo travel! I would love to meet locals and fellow solo travels for coffee, tea, dinner, sightseeing, or simply just for a stroll.
based on 3 experiences
Alcatraz, Golden Gate Bridge (you can walk it or bike it), and Lands End (for a nice bridge view) are all great things to do. SF MOMA if you like art, Pier 39 and Ferry Building are fun to hang around and eat at, and Cal Academy of Sciences is awesome!! The Palace of Fine Arts is also gorgeous.
San Francisco is home to many world famous attractions including the Golden Gate Bridge, Chinatown, Alcatraz Island and Pier39 in Fisherman's Wharf. A Hop On Hop Off bus tour is the most popular way to see the sights, but also don't miss San Francisco Bay, with various options for boat tours.
There is a lot of homelessness and drug use and people with mental health issues on the streets but I do not consider it a violent city. I would definitely suggest avoiding staying in the Tenderloin, Civic Center, or Union Square areas just because the streets are really dirty. If you are staying in a hotel I’d suggest Japantown or Nob Hill or Fisherman’s wharf/Embarcadero area. There are hotels scattered throughout the city but the areas I mentioned have many choices . If doing Airbnb there are many great neighborhoods to stay in. The De Young museum has some great exhibits. Golden Gate park is always nice if there is good weather. I always suggest taking a day to go just north of San Francisco over the Golden Gate Bridge and head to Muir Woods to visit the giant redwoods.
