Ferry Market Building, which is on the Embarcadero has Market days a couple of days a week, Saturdays are best with the biggest range of stalls, selling everything from fresh coffee to flowers, a great range of stalls for foodies too. Inside the Ferry Building is another host of eateries and shops, something for everyone.
A great place to eat fresh seafood, we had the Cioppino, a mix of crab, lobster, muscles, clams and other fish, all served in a tomato based sauce and pasta. Famous also for Oysters.
Castro is an area of San Francisco which is famed for all things gay and is catered to people who identify with LGBT culture. The area is very relaxed with some great shops, eateries and bars. See the famous Castro theatre and Harvey Milks camera shop, which is now the Human Rights Campaign shop.
What can I say, the whole reason for visiting San Francisco in my eyes. Until you see the Golden Gate Bridge you cannot comprehend the sheer size of this Bridge. If you are planning a walk over the bridge try a pick a clear day, as the famous fog can spoil views. It takes around 2 hours to walk the bridge end to end and back again.
Wow..... You have to do this, there are about 3-4 different trips available varying on length of flight. You fly over the city seeing it from a birds eye view. The best part is the flight over and then under... Yes under......The Golden Gate Bridge. The pilot is informative and professional.
Eerie is an understatement.... A great tour with earphones giving you an indepth view of life as prisoner on Alcatraz.
A fantastic piece of Architecture not to be missed.....
A great way to get around the city, around $6 for a trip from one stop to another. Once you get off, you cannot get back on without paying unless you have an unlimited travel pass.
The Cheesecake Factory is like no other place, im really not a fan of cheesecake but this changed my tastebuds. Situated on the top floor of Macy's department store. The view is spectacular and so are the cheesecakes, they also do a wide range of food and drinks.
A great place to relax, grab a sandwich from Alamo deli and sit back and watch the world go by, The Painted Ladies are a row of Victorian houses said to be the most expensive in San Fransico.
Probably one of the most famous streets in San Francisco. As well as the most photographed...
A great Cafe in the heart of Castro. Seating available inside and out. The menu has a wide range of sandwiches, salads and meals to suit all tastes.
A shoppers paradise, every kind of store and every brand imaginable. Macy's, Saks, Prada, Bloomingdales to mention a few, and a whole mall full of shops too.....
Stunning architecture in the heart of the city, we'll worth taking a look if you are passing..
Fisher and Wharf is a popular place, you can book trips from the Wharf and there are plenty of eateries and souvenir shops.
Whilst you there you have to see Pier 39, the best thing are the sea lions who reside at the Pier. Pier 39 was not really my cup of tea as its a bit like Blackpool, full of souvenir shops and fast food restaurants.
A great place to relax and unwind. There is so much to see at the park.
The Coit Tower is situated in the North Beach area, there is a small charge t go up the tower itself but otherwise it's free just to look round the grounds. The views are spectacular when you reach the top. Don't worry there is a lift.
Sit down or takeaway, this Pizza restaurant is in the North Beach area. The pizzas are great in taste and are made fresh to order.
