“The gateway to the bay, this iconic bridge is in many movies and television shows. A quick 5 to 10 minute bus or drive. For the more adventurous, rent the bike and ride through the Presidio and enjoy a glimpse of the a former base with a myriad of hiking and biking trails.”

“What to say? One of the great parks of the United States. Just head down the hill to Kezar Stadium (at the very bottom of Willard Street) and you'll see the GGP right beyond it (walk around Kezar to the west to enter the park). You can also enter on Stanyan and Haight (and at many other points). Enjoy the Academy of Sciences, de Young Museum, Japanese Tea Garden, Stow Lake, the Conservatory of Flowers (great night time light shows in the summer and winter) and many, many other features of the park.”

“The most famous street in downtown San Francisco. Great place for photos and to walk up + down. If you have a car, definitely drive down for a fun experience!”

“Constantly bustling -- people use the square mostly as a space to relax and soak up a bit of sun, and to wallow in the atmosphere created by the surrounding cable cars, hotels and shoppers. Great for people watching! There is free wi-fi provided by the city. Look under the leaves of the greenery in the planters, and you'll find a few power outlets for your laptop.”
