I cannot even begin to tell you what a wonderful place San Francisco is. I can tell you that we live very close to the BART Station, where you can board a train and take yourself to begin your adventure to historic San Francisco. I will aim to give you a few of my favorites, but there is even more! CABLE CARS: I think most of our travelers are interested in riding a cable car, which if you are interested, please get off at the Powell Street Station when taking BART. Go early to avoid the very long line. The cable car will bring you to Fisherman's Wharf, another tourist destination. ALCATRAZ: Some folks want to visit Alcatraz, a historic prison, where notorious gangsters were housed. You will have needed to book this adventure weeks if not more beforehand. From my personal experience, it can be a very interesting trip, but if you book a later time, be prepared for very cold winds and possibly wanting to get off the island because you are so cold. CHINATOWN: San Francisco is known for having one of the largest Chinatowns in the United States. Not as large as New York, which covers 40 blocks as compared to 24 blocks in San Francisco. San Francisco Chinatown has a rich history that cannot be fully appreciated in one visit, although a walk through the busy streets, watching and participating is some local vegetable and fruit purchasing will give you just a flavor for this special place so many have called home since 1848. Quoting a description from google: Since it's establishment in 1848, it has been important and influential in the history and culture of ethnic Chinese immigrants in North America. Chinatown is an enclave that has retained its own customs, languages, places of worship, social clubs, and identity. Japan Town: Another wonderful place to visit is Japan Town, which is walkable from Downtown San Francisco. Again quoting from google: San Francisco's Japantown, the largest of 3 in the US, has been the center of the Bay Area's Japanese and Japanese American community since 1906. It continues to be an exciting place to explore and find authentic Japanese culture, restaurants, shops and experiences. North Beach: North Beach is located right near Chinatown and is a great place to enjoy Italian Food, cafes, Italian ice-cream and walking around some very interesting shops and Washington Park which is adjacent to Saint Peter and Paul Church. Mission District: A diverse Latin neighborhood, which has many stores and restaurants you may enjoy visiting. The people who call this neighborhood home, have mostly immigrated from Mexico and Central America. You will see many families going about their day shopping and caring for one another. Historically there have been many Mexican, Peruvian, Salvadoran and Nicaraguan Restaurants on Mission Street. You will also see the underbelly of San Francisco, where many of San Francisco's marginalized peoples have struggled, especially with the pandemic. There is still much to enjoy on Valencia St. and Mission St. , with many original restaurants that offer vegetarian, vegan and other foods that you may be interested in enjoying. Golden Gate Park: My absolute favorite place in San Francisco is Golden Gate Park. Golden Gate Park stretches over 1,017 acres, so you may want to have a few ideas of what you'd like to see beforehand. My personal favorites are as follows: Stow Lake is a man-made lake with an island in the middle, tucked away in Golden Gate Park (Google quote). There are plenty of ducks, geese, turtles and other wildlife to enjoy. There is a pagoda in the middle of the lake. You can rent peddle boats, row boats and electric boats to ride. I enjoy just walking around the lake and sitting at various benches to both people watch as well as enjoy the scenery. There are also two windmills. The Dutch windmill is located at Queen Wilhelmina Tulip Garden, which is beautiful and the other is The Murphy Windmill. Ocean Beach: Is located on the West side of the park, very near the Dutch windmill. Rose Garden: A beautifully maintained variety of colorful roses. Their bloom is dependent on the season and the weather of course. Conservatory of Flowers, Dahlia Garden, The DeYoung Museum, The Japanese Tea Garden, The Aquarium which includes a Planetarium, The Conservatory of Flowers, and much more.
