Explore San Francisco

Whether you’d rather be browsing independent bookstores or watching sea otters in the bay, the San Francisco Bay Area is a destination that has something for every type of visitor. With a vibrant food scene, numerous museums and cultural attractions, and endless outdoor activities, San Francisco is a city you’ll want to visit again and again. And the best news? Quick and simple transport via bus, rapid rail, and commuter rail is available from the airport to the city center so you can hop from your flight right into the action.

With mild temperatures year-round, you’ll want to spend as much time outside as possible. Walk the Golden Gate Bridge and explore the hiking trails and the waterfront promenade at Golden Gate National Recreation Area. Walk up Telegraph Hill for panoramic views of the city from Coit Tower. Wander through the Japanese Tea Garden and San Francisco’s Botanical Gardens in Golden Gate Park, or hike the beautiful Lands End Trail for amazing Pacific views. More of an urban explorer? Take a walk past the colorful Victorian-style houses in Haight-Ashbury, or tour the street art in The Mission.

It’s easy to lose yourself in the galleries at San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the De Young Art Museum, or the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts. When you get hungry, head over to Chinatown for dim sum or Japan Town for sushi (and karaoke!). Visitors shouldn’t miss landmarks like Lombard Street, the curviest street in the city, and Alcatraz, the former federal prison on an island that now offers tours. And no trip to the San Francisco Bay Area is complete without a ride on the city’s famous cable cars!
