Wonders by the Water
One of the most iconic sites in the city is the Golden Gate Bridge, rising from the early morning fog – a sight visitors wake up and leave their hotels in San Francisco early to see. This large suspension bridge, opened in 1937, is considered one of the seven wonders of the modern world. Seen in films such as Rise of the Planet of the Apes, the distinctive orange bridge has numerous art deco features and gorgeous views that can be appreciated even further with one of the guided tours available.
At the top of Telegraph Hill, with its attractive homes, sits Coit Tower, a tall white construction with panoramic views of the city. Inside the tower are some beautifully intricate murals, painted in 1933 in the style of Diego Rivera.
Bring the Past to Life
San Francisco has plenty of quality bars to choose from, one of our favourites is Shotwell’s Bar in the Mission area. Visiting Shotwell’s is like travelling back in time, it opened in 1891 and still retains original features such as the wooden bar. It serves local and international beers, with pinball machines adding to the retro feel.
If you’ve got children with you, you can still leave your city centre hotel in San Francisco and sample the bars with The Ice Cream Bar in Cole Valley, perfect for a family treat. Using vintage soda pumps from the 1930s, this soda fountain serves up wonderful concoctions for kids and big kids alike.
Escape to Alcatraz
Seen in films such as The Rock, with Nicholas Cage and Sean Connery, Alcatraz is a fascinating place to visit while you’re in San Francisco. Built in 1910 on Alcatraz Island, it was first a military prison, then a high security prison for the most dangerous criminals in the United States. Alcatraz closed its doors as a prison in 1963 but remains open today as a museum, visited by millions of people every year. Take a boat ride to the island, where you’ll be given a tour of the cells and a slide show presentation featuring anecdotes by former guards and inmates.
Downhome and Delicious
San Francisco’s history as a busy sea port has influenced a unique and mouthwatering fusion of dishes from around the world, well-represented in the restaurants on offer here.
For a taste of typical Californian food, made with care, head to Frances at 3870 17th Street where Chef Melissa Perello serves up heartwarming fare such as baked cherrystone clams and bacon beignets with gorgeous, creamy fries.
