We love San Francisco! We've been so many times, yet there is something new to do every time. Here is a list of our FAVORITE things to do in San Francisco:
1. Ride a Cable Car
There are three cable car lines: the Powell-Hyde Line, the Powell-Mason Line and the California Line. There's even a cable car museum! It's about $7 to take a ride. Check out: How to ride a Cable Car
2. See the Painted Ladies
Steiner St, San Francisco, CA 94117
Check out these brightly colored Victorian beauties. Alamo Square Park, located directly across from the ladies, is currently under construction but reopens May 24, 2017. If you're not singing the theme song to Full House in front of these houses, there is something wrong with you. The actual Full House house is located: 1709 Broderick Street, about a mile away.
3. Check Out Alcatraz
This famous prison is in the middle of the bay, once home to Al Capone. I recommend going early to beat the crowds (make sure you buy your tickets a couple weeks in advance).
Day tickets to The Rock are only $45, I dare you to try the night tour! Buy tickets here: Alcatraz Tours
4. Visit Lombard Street
Lombard St, San Francisco, CA 94133
Check out the 8 crazy zigzag turns down the hill on Lombard Street. It's fun to drive down too!
5. Visit the Sea Lions at Fisherman's Wharf - Pier 39
Beach Street & The Embarcadero, San Francisco, CA 94133
Grab a bite to eat, do some shopping and then come see these guys! There are hundreds of sea lions at times, swimming, barking, and splashing.
6. Visit the Golden Gate Bridge
Golden Gate National Recreation Area, Presidio of San Francisco, San Francisco, CA 94129
You can drive, bike, and even walk across this massive bridge, or enjoy from a beach nearby. Any way you choose, you can appreciate the beauty of this iconic art deco bridge. If you get to the other side, there is a park/lookout area to snap a few photos.
7. Get Ice Cream and Sit in the Park
Bi-Rite: 3692 18th St, San Francisco, CA 94110
Bi-Rite is one of the best ice cream establishments in San Francisco. There is always a wait, but it is well worth it. Dolores Park is right across the street, which is a great place to enjoy city views and enjoy some ice cream.

8. Go Shopping in Union Square
333 Post St, San Francisco, CA 94108
Shopping is one of my favorite activites and Union Square has some of the best stores: Macy's, Saks 5th Ave, Tiffany & Co, Nike, Apple, Williams-Sonoma, to name a few. Down Powell there are more shops and a mall off of Market.
9. Find the Mrs. Doubtfire House
2640 Steiner St, San Francisco, CA 94115
"Steiner Street. Oooh how lovely!" One of my favorite movies of all-time. There's even a Robin Williams tribute with people that have signed rocks in the planter. Here's what it looks like: inside the house.
10. Catch a Giant's Game at AT&T Park
24 Willie Mays Plaza, San Francisco, CA 94107
