San Francisco – Things to do

San Francisco Attractions

San Francisco hosts an iconic bridge, the world's last manually operated cable car system and lots of delicious fresh seafood; the 'City by the Bay' has it all. Spend a few days exploring the city then head off on your California adventure. You can also experience other areas on day trips from the city, such as sipping wine in Napa Valley and witnessing the majestic Yosemite National Park.

Fisherman's Wharf

Fisherman's Wharf and Pier 39

A thriving location filled with shops, boutiques, restaurants and bars on San Francisco's waterfront. Head to Boudin Bakery for some of their famous sour dough rolls filled with clam chowder, take a cruise from here around the bay or listen to the noisey sea lions basking in the sun.

Cycling over the Golden Gate Bridge

Golden Gate Bridge and Park

Take a cruise around the bay and under the iconic Golden Gate Bridge or cycle across the bridge for a different perspective. Why not cycle a little further to Sausalito, where you can grab lunch or an ice-cream before the 8 mile cycle back to Fisherman's Wharf or if you're a little tired, catch the ferry.
