San Francisco travel tips

Let us help you with the best tips about San Francisco

Best time to visit San Francisco

SF often experiences cooler temperatures in summer as compared to autumn. Average temperatures from June – August range from 12 – 19 degrees Celsius. In spite of the brisk winds, and chilly, damp weather, these summer months see peak tourist activity, and tend to drive hotel rates higher. Book your accommodation in advance if you plan to visit in summer. From September – November, average temperatures climb closer to 20 degrees Celsius, but the ever-present fog and bayside breeze can cause sudden drops in temperature, especially after sundown. From December, the temperatures drop further to approximately 10 degrees Celsius. If you don’t mind the cooler weather, then winter or spring may be good times to visit SF and get some attractive bargains on hotel prices before the main tourist season begins. Rain, fog, and brisk winds can occur all year round, so remember to pack an umbrella and a light jacket.

Getting around San Francisco

Being a fairly compact city, you can easily explore most of the tourist attractions on foot. Remember that the terrain is hilly and there are several streets with steep inclines, so if you are not up for walking, then you can rely on the MUNI buses and streetcars. A single ride costs $2.75 USD. Another fun way to explore the city is to ride in the classic cable cars. A single ride ticket is $7.00 USD, but it allows you to explore SF in an entertaining and leisurely manner. You can also use the Bay Area Rapid Transport (BART)-operated high-speed rail service within the city and neighbouring locations, including travel to and from the airport. Taxis are easily available 24 hours a day and ride-share options such as Uber and Lyft also operate in the city. Certain central areas of SF are connected with the neighbouring Bay Area via water transport operated by The Golden Gate Ferry Service. If you wish to explore the city on a bike, then the Ford GoBike program allows you to unlock a bike from any of the stations across San Francisco for $3.00 USD per trip or unlimited 30-minute rides for 24 hours with a $9.95 USD Day Pass.

Where to stay in San Francisco

Best places to stay in San Francisco

The fog shrouded San Francisco or SF is home to all things quirky, innovative and trendy. Apart from the breathtaking views of the bay and its surroundings, the city thrives on its epic farmers’ markets, trend-setting culinary quests and a dominant tech innovation scene. There are several unique and charming neighbourhoods to explore and enjoy. If you’re visiting for the first time, you may want to choose from one of these areas to book your hotel.

Union Square

In the heart of the city, the bustling Union Square is full of boutique shops, gourmet eateries, theatres and art galleries. Many of the tourist attractions are in this area, so it’s a central location to stay while exploring the rest of the city. Consider The Inn at Union Square which offers plush, comfortable rooms, just a 2-minute walk from Union Square. Or try the Grand Hyatt San Francisco which offers luxury suites with incredible views of the city skyline and bay. Fisherman’s Wharf

This is a family-friendly area with street performers, historic cable cars, art galleries, museums and plenty of entertainment for all ages. Enjoy the hip, industrial-chic rooms and an urban sleek atmosphere of the Pier 2620 Hotel located at the crossroads of Fisherman’s Wharf and the historic North Beach. You can also consider the refined rooms and suites of Hotel Zoe on North Point Street, in the heart of Fisherman’s Wharf.

Nob Hill and Russian Hill

Russian Hill is largely a residential neighbourhood where you’ll find quaint shops and restaurants at every street corner. It’s also home to the famous Painted Ladies Victorian homes and the crooked Lombard Street. Nob Hill is a posh area, known for its high-end hotels and fine dining restaurants. Atop Nob Hill, stay at The Scarlet Huntington, a landmark boutique hotel with vibrant Oriental-influenced interiors and chic rooms with colourful accents. You also have the Fairmont San Francisco, a grand hotel with luxurious rooms and amenities on Mason Street. Enjoy the relaxed and comfortable rooms of Lombard Inn, just 800 metres away from the famed hairpin turns and steep hills of Lombard Street.

Financial District and The Embarcadero

The Embarcadero boulevard runs along the eastern shoreline from the Bay Bridge, past the Ferry Buildings and Financial District, to Pier 39 and Fisherman’s Wharf. There are plenty of waterfront attractions along this stretch and several piers that offer cruises to Alcatraz Island. Financial District features a large cluster of high-rises with both historic and contemporary architecture and it’s the commercial hub of the city. Buzzing with hectic activity during the week, this area is quiet and peaceful on the weekends. For the ultimate luxury, stay at the Four Seasons Hotel San Francisco or The Ritz-Carlton San Francisco. For a mid-range budget hotel, stay in the stylish and comfortable rooms of the Galleria Park Hotel.

Cheap hotels in San Francisco

Although accommodation in San Francisco can really stretch your wallet, it is possible to find a few cheap hotels that are conveniently located. In the heart of Downtown SF you have the Post Hotel, steps away from the Bohemian Club and Union Square. Near the beautiful Golden Gate Park area, you can try Travelodge at the Presidio San Francisco on Lombard Street. In the heart of the historic Fisherman’s Wharf, you have Super 8 San Francisco / Near the Marina, a modern budget hotel with clean, comfortable rooms. You can also look at the Greenwich Inn, which offers an affordable stay in the Marina District, and is just a 3-minute walk from the shopping, dining, and art galleries on Union Street.


What to do in San Francisco

Rolling hills, steep streets, historic cable cars, a park spanning over 1,000 acres, and a giant orange Golden Gate Bridge are just the tip of the iceberg. The lively and colourful city of San Francisco is home to a little bit of everything. The city has an abundance of art, architecture, culture, natural beauty, food, music, sports, history, and even futuristic technology. There is something new to discover each time you visit SF. If you are visiting for the first time, here are a few suggestions that you should definitely add to your itinerary.

  • Walk or bike across the impressive Golden Gate Bridge and click scores of selfies as you pass the glowing orange arches. You can also get more postcard-worthy pictures if you hike up further to the Golden Gate Bridge Vista Point.
  • Enjoy a picnic or just stroll around the expansive lush green Golden Gate Park as you enjoy the stunning views of the bay and the Golden Gate Bridge.
  • Ride up and down in the classic cable cars and be enthralled by spectacular views of the city’s steep, vibrant streets, with the San Francisco Bay beyond.
  • Book a cruise to Alcatraz Island and visit the notorious former prison called ‘The Rock’, from where no inmate ever managed a successful escape.
  • In Fisherman’s Wharf, watch the California sea lions at Pier 39’s K-Dock and then enjoy the street performances, food stalls, and arcades also at the same pier.
  • Walk around the North Beach neighbourhood, a romantic Italian quarter with several al-fresco style restaurants, cafés, and plenty of shops around Washington Square. Also visit the beautiful Saint Peter and Paul Church while exploring this area.
  • Enter the Dragon’s Gate at Grant Avenue and Bush Street and take a leisurely stroll in Chinatown as you explore the exotic shops, restaurants, food markets, and temples.
  • Enjoy authentic international cuisine at scores of restaurants all over the city, particularly in Japantown, Chinatown, The Marina, South of Market (SoMA), North Beach, The Mission, and the Fillmore neighbourhoods.
  • Go club-hopping at some of the hottest and trendiest clubs in SF in the SoMa neighbourhood.
  • Stop by at the Ghirardelli Square shopping centre for a delicious ice cream sundae.
  • Soak in the city’s culture and arts as you explore the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Asian Art Museum, de Young Museum, and Legion of Honor Museum.
  • Make a trip to the California Academy of Sciences, one of the largest natural history museums in the world.
