If you’re thinking of visiting San Francisco, you can’t go wrong with seeing the classics. The Golden Gate Bridge, once called “the bridge that couldn’t be built,” is now one of the seven wonders of the modern world. While in the area you can also visit Golden Gate Park, one of the largest urban parks in the world, clocking in at almost three miles long.
You can also see a number of San Francisco attractions from Lombard Street. Often called the “crookedest” street in the world, this scenic road on Russian Hill features tight turns, fragrant gardens, and beautiful views of the bay, Alcatraz, and Coit Tower.
You’re probably familiar with Alcatraz Island. Alcatraz was the site of the first lighthouse in the Western United States but became a federal penitentiary from 1934-1963, housing famous convicts such as Al Capone and George “Machine Gun” Kelly. Now, this once infamous prison island is part of the Bay Area’s 80,000-acre Golden Gate National Recreation Area. Located one-and-a-half miles from Fisherman’s Wharf, Alcatraz is one of the city’s most popular attractions.
If you’re looking for an outdoor family-friendly activity, check out Yerba Buena Gardens. An award-winning public facility at the heart of San Francisco’s downtown cultural district, Yerba Buena Gardens features a children’s garden, public art, museums, a historic carousel, ice-skating, and bowling centers.
If you’re looking to really get into the history of San Francisco, you can visit the Cable Car Museum. Located in the Washington-Mason powerhouse and car barn on Nob Hill, the Cable Car Museum overlooks the huge engines and winding wheels that pull the cables for San Francisco’s famous trams. You can also visit the San Francisco Zoo and Gardens. The zoo is a historic treasure with 1,000 endangered and rescued animals representing 250 species in 100 acres of lovely, peaceful gardens.
