Fisherman’s Wharf—One of San Francisco’s most popular destinations. From old shipyards to Boudin’s Bakery and the smell of fresh clam chowder, and of course, the sea lions of Pier 39, Fisherman’s Wharf has it all.
Aquatic Park—Positioned near the end of the Hyde Street Cable Car, Aquatic Park is a National Historic Landmark on the San Francisco Bay. Featuring one of the cleanest beaches in California, be on the lookout for the bold, open-water swimmers who frequent the area.
Fort Mason—Located at the San Francisco Bay, Fort Mason was previously a historic army post. Today, it serves as the headquarters for the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy and Golden Gate National Recreation Area and offers an incredible view of the Golden Gate Bridge.
Marina District—Home to Fort Mason and the Palace of Fine Arts, San Francisco’s Marina District lies on the northern shore of the city. The area offers a scenic view of Alcatraz and the Golden Gate Bridge.
Palace of Fine Arts—Inspired by Roman and Greek architecture, the Palace of Fine Arts was originally constructed to celebrate San Francisco’s recovery from the 1906 earthquake. Surrounded by a peaceful garden, it is great for photos.
The Presidio—Former military base, now a beautiful park that includes Crissy Field, Fort Point, Lucasfilm’s (George Lucas) headquarters and the Walt Disney Museum.
The Golden Gate Bridge—Declared “one of the 10 wonders of the modern world,” the Golden Gate Bridge is one of the most recognized symbols of San Francisco. Simply stunning!
Sea Cliff—Adjacent to the Pacific Ocean and Baker Beach, Sea Cliff offers expansive views of the ocean and awe-inspiring mansions.
Pacific Heights—Offering one of the most scenic outlooks in all of Northern California, Pacific Heights is home to Billionaire’s Row, featuring the estates of politicians, tech titans and other San Francisco celebrities (includes Mrs. Doubtfire house!)
North Beach—Voted as one of the USA’s “ten great neighborhoods,” North Beach is best known as the home of Little Italy. From delicious restaurants to authentic sidewalk cafes and bakeries, you will feel the charm of San Francisco as soon as you arrive.
