Fun Things To Do In San Francisco

Are you bored during the weekends? Do you not have anything fun to do? Then go to San Francisco! There are so many fun things to do! Here are a few…

China Town

In China Town, there are many antique shops and amazing restaurants. You could go to the China Town Kite Shop, or eat a delicious dim sum lunch at Hang Ah. Dim sum is a Cantonese style of meal featuring many small-portioned dishes, such as dumplings. You could also go to the Golden Gate Fortune Cookie Factory and to find out your future!

Alcatraz

You can take a ferry ride out to Alcatraz Island and tour the old prisons, including an audio tour in the famous prisons that huge criminals have tried to escape from. If you are really brave, you can even stay overnight in one of the prison cells!

Golden Gate Park

In Golden Gate Park, you can visit the Conservatory of Flowers, which is a large greenhouse full of exotic flowers. You can also visit the Japanese Tea Garden and drink amazing tea after going through a beautiful maze of perfectly trimmed bushes and unique Japanese statues. If you are into art, you can also visit the De Young Museum, which is filled with a collection of American, African, and Oceanic art. 

California Academy of Sciences

Go to the Academy of Sciences and see the awesome exhibits of space, land, and water. There are many things to explore including a natural history museum, an aquarium, a planetarium, a rainforest, a 3D theater, two restaurants and a gift shop. In addition to all these awesome things there is a garden on the roof! It is called the living roof which that you can take an elevator up to and see the flowers and other plants growing up there. On some days, they have telescopes out that you use to observe the moon and other planets that are out at night.

Pier 39

At Pier 39, you can visit the sea lions, eat clam chowder in a sourdough bread bowl, go shopping in the small shops along the water, buy amazing treats from the candy shops, get lost in the mirror maze, or just take in the beautiful view of the bay! There is also the Aquarium by the Bay in Pier 39 that you can visit. There are cute, furry otters, extravagant fish exhibits, and movies about the animals in the bay!

 Ride A Cable Car

Feel the wind in you hair and see the amazing sights of San Francisco while riding a cable car! You can ride a cable car to pretty much anywhere, but the best place to go is Union Square. Union Square is where Macy’s and a bunch of awesome restaurants and cafés are. After you get your fill of shopping, you can get back on the cable car and go somewhere else! It also stops at Ghirardelli Chocolate, where you can stuff yourself with the best chocolate, hot chocolate, ice cream, and other delicious treats

San Francisco Zoo

At the zoo, you can see all the animals, including lions, and tigers, and bears, oh my! There are many different sections of the zoo, including the big cats, African animals, monkeys, lemurs, birds, reptiles, amphibians, and so much more. You can also have a tasty lunch at the Leaping Lemur Café!

Walk, Bike or Segway Across the Golden Gate Bride

You can just take in the beautiful sight of the bay from the best viewing spot, the bridge! You can walk and bike, but you can also try taking a Segway across! A Segway is a small platform that you stand on that has two wheels. You can buy a Segway tour, so you can enjoy the bridge with your friends and have a guide to help you along.

Now armed with the knowledge of activities around San Francisco, you can have an awesome time on your weekends!
