“San Francisco has only one drawback… it’s hard to leave.”
– Rudyard Kipling
San Francisco is one of the country’s top destinations. The popular cosmopolitan City by the Bay is renowned for its breathtaking natural beauty, cultural diversity and the arts, charming Victorian architecture, a temperate climate and world-class sailing on the bay. And like London and Florence, it’s an interesting walking city. Everything is conveniently located, so you don’t need a car to get around.
Fun San Francisco Attractions & City Sightseeing Tours
There’s so much to do and see in San Francisco and the Bay Area. It can be a little overwhelming, especially if it’s your first visit. One of the best ways to see San Francisco’s most popular sights is aboard a “Hop-On-Hop-Off” Bus Tour. We always recommend this for every city. San Francisco is home to world-famous attractions, including the following:
Culinary Trendsetter – Fun for Foodies
San Francisco is a food-lover’s delight where originality, creativity and ethnic diversity abounds. It’s one of the nation’s top culinary destinations, with more eclectic cuisine and gourmet restaurants than you can count. North Beach is one of our favorite neighborhoods. It’s filled with cozy Italian restaurants, outdoor cafes, coffee houses, bustling nightclubs and bars. It’s one of the city’s most popular hangouts. And SF’s Chinatown – one of the nation’s oldest and largest – is a fun place for tea-tasting, Dim Sum and incredible Chinese cuisine. Stroll along Fisherman’s Wharf. Its historic waterfront area offers unique “tastes” of San Francisco – street vendors sell “portions-to-go” of fresh Dungeness crab, shrimp cocktails, fried calamari, and other delicious seafood delicacies. Bon appetit!
Book Sightseeing Tours, Day Trips and Fun Things To Do

The Best Time To Visit San Francisco
The best time to visit San Francisco is during the Spring or Fall, when it’s warm and sunny. Winters are usually mild too, especially compared to the East Coast. The fog – San Francisco’s natural air-conditioner – rolls in along the coast during the summer months (mornings and evenings). So, if you’re planning a trip in July or August, bring layers, just in case.
Note to tourists: Never refer to San Francisco as “Frisco” or “San Fran” – San Francisco or SF is just fine. 🙂
