Top 5 things to do in San Francisco

Drive across the Golden Gate Bridge - Or look down onto its famous red hues from the rocky cliff sides.
Ride a cable car - While a great way to travel round the city, a ride on a cable car is essential for any tourist even if they’re not requiring them for traditional transportation needs.
Visit Alcatraz Island - Home to a historic prison and – if rumours are correct – a few hauntings. Alcatraz is steeped in history and culture making it a fascinating place to visit, whether you’re interested in visiting the museum or chasing some ghosts.
Hangout in Union Square - If you want to do a spot of shopping while in this easy-going city, visit Union Square and its surrounding district. Here you’ll find store such as Barneys NY, Bloomingdales, Macy's, and Saks Fifth Avenue.
Spend an afternoon in Fisherman's Wharf - San Francisco made great use of its striking coastline when it built this historic waterfront district. Here you’ll find the Maritime Museum, the USS Pampanito, Liberty Ship, the SS Jeremiah O'Brien, and Madame Tussauds.
