San Francisco Travel Guide
Travel Guide to San Francisco
When in San Francisco, don’t forget to...
Purchase a CityPASS that includes seven days of unlimited rides on the city’s cable cars, as well as on all Muni buses and trolleys. It covers all you need to get around in San Francisco. Pick a package that also gives you discounted rates and lets you bypass queues at the major tourist locations.
Explore the city’s numerous state-of-the-art science museums. Navigate through the tactile dome, a pitch-black maze at the Exploratorium, and experience 7.9-magnitude tremors at the new Earthquake exhibit at the California Academy of Sciences.
Relive the Roaring Twenties at the famous Castro Theatre, a 1920s movie hall that’s still in pristine condition. It screens art and classic films, and hosts sing-alongs on most nights. For the complete experience, arrive in a vintage 1920s streetcar: take the F-Market & Wharves line and alight at Castro Street.
Sample a wide range of food at the Ferry Building Marketplace, where everything from fresh local seafood to artisan chocolates and cheeses can be found. The farmer’s market is open on Tuesdays and Saturdays until 2pm. It’s located in the historic Ferry Building at the foot of Market Street on The Embarcadero.
Visit San Francisco’s famed Chinatown – the settlement of the oldest and largest Chinese community outside Asia. It is a short walk from Union Square and is best explored on foot. Check out the many alleys and markets that have been featured in movies like The Presidio and Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.
