Best Free Attractions in San Francisco
There’s no better time than the spring to visit San Francisco, California. Discount tickets and other deals abound for travelers who want to see this exciting North California city. However, you don’t have to stock up on discount tickets to make your vacation work. We’ve uncovered several totally free attractions that you can enjoy in San Francisco. See our list below…
The Golden Gate Bridge: Of course, we have to give this world-famous attraction the number one spot. There are tons of great locations you can view the Golden Gate Bridge from, but one of our favorites is Hawk Hill & Battery Spencer. This is a great vantage point for watching the sun set behind the bridge. Also, high up on Hawk Hill, you’re pretty much looking at the upper reaches of the bridge’s stanchions at eye level.
Anchor Brewing Company Tour: San Francisco makes some great beer – so great that you don’t even have to be a beer aficionado to enjoy it. Anchor Brewing is leading the way. In addition to making some great beer, the folks at Anchor have developed a great tour that includes views of its historic facilities and tastings of six half-pints. Remarkably, all of this is free. However, the community has figured out what a great time Anchor offers, so you’ll have to make your reservations at least four weeks in advance.
Cable Car Museum: Rides on the Cable Cars aren’t bus-ride-cheap, but are definitely affordable (especially if you rely on them for transportation to another attraction you want to see). If you love riding in the cable cars, make sure to check out the Cable Car Museum! It’s free and informative. What more could you want?
Golden Gate Park: Filled with gorgeous landscapes and exciting cultural events (concerts, plays, and more), Golden Gate Park is fun for the whole family. Take a break from your busy tourist agenda, and relax for an afternoon underneath the beautiful redwood trees.
