754 Post St, San Francisco, CA 94109, USA
This place is tiny, but it's one of my favorite places in my neighborhood. The menu is small so there are only a few choices, but no matter what you get, you'll be happy. Make sure to try the iced coffee. It's made with chicory, the way it's done...

4519, 261 Columbus Ave, San Francisco, CA 94133, USA
A personal shrine of mine, in the basement of City Lights Bookstore. Mysteries that way-->

Lombard St, San Francisco, CA 94133, USA
Such a cool street. Amazing how well maintained and kept it is!
Save Place
Steiner St, San Francisco, CA 94117, USA
Cue "Full House" music. Alamo Square's famous "Painted Ladies" or "Postcard Row" as many know it. After 9 months of traveling last year, I planned a short stay in San Francisco, yet months later, I'm still here in the City by the Bay.

Sutter St, San Francisco, CA, USA
Good street art is like finding a fun secret when traveling.

16th Ave, San Francisco, CA 94122, USA
Tucked away in the quiet neighborhood between Inner and Outer Sunset, the 16th Avenue Tiled Steps (Moraga St. btw 15th & 16th Ave) are among the hidden treasures of San Francisco. Standing at the bottom of the stairs, you can see the intricate...

If you're in San Francisco for just a day, a week, or even a lifetime, check out San Francisco City Guides walking tours. Tours cover the rich history and architecture of neighborhoods all over the city. There's even a Hitchcock tour for movie...

Dolores St & 19th St, San Francisco, CA 94114, USA
Since moving to San Francisco three months ago, I've gone to Dolores Park almost every weekend. The vibe there embodies what I've come to love about San Francisco. There's public drinking, yes, but people clean up after themselves, and behave...

Russian Hill, San Francisco, CA, USA
Roam Artisan Burgers on Union Street in San Francisco is not your typical burger joint. The interiors are an artsy blend of wood, glass, and recycled fixtures and burgers can be made with a beef, turkey, veggie, bison, or elk patty. I can vouch...

56 Ross Alley, San Francisco, CA 94108, USA
In the largest Chinatown outside Asia, the Golden Gate Fortune Cookie Factory glows in the somewhat dark Ross Alley. A group of writers from a Trafalgar Guided Vacation enter the building and see the fortune cookies being made. The untainted, non...

1690 John F Kennedy Dr, San Francisco, CA 94121, USA
In Golden Gate Park, right off Ocean Beach, you'll find two historic Murphy windmills that have just been restored to their former working glory. The surrounding tulips and a picnic area make it a perfect pit-stop on your way to, or from, the...

4025 Judah St, San Francisco, CA 94122, USA
The guy who runs Tuesday Tattoo, Jesse Tuesday, is a superfamous tattoo artist and a diehard surfer. It’s a rad little shop. The vibe is different from most tattoo parlors. It has a cozy, humble feeling. It’s the type of place you’d go to sip a...

15 Lafayette St, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA
One of the things I love most about San Francisco is discovering little out of the way places that you can only find by wandering off the well-worn path of busy streets. Tucked away on a seldom traveled alley way off Mission St is a tiny little...

Pier 39 Beach and, The Embarcadero, San Francisco, CA 94133, USA
AT&T Park and the Cable Cars were my highlights. The cable car is fun and let my imagination run wild with how things could've been "back in the day". Definitely do it. The MUNI 3 day pass (in our case) was so worth it as we used the bus...

Baker's Hall, 160 Jefferson St, San Francisco, CA 94133, USA
Some hot coffee, clam chowder and fresh bread - then on to the next meeting.... Tip: Go at a time of year and day when less tourists abound, and enjoy the classic outside if fortunate enough to have sunshine and get a table.

560 Larkin St, San Francisco, CA 94102, USA
I crave this caramel-y roasted pork Banh Mi at Saigon Sandwich. The classic Vietnamese sandwich is on a fresh French baguette that is perfectly soft yet crispy, accompanied by fresh carrots, cucumbers, cilantro, and peppers, plus the most...

57 Post St, San Francisco, CA 94104, USA
It doesn't matter how well you think you know a place—there's always somewhere new worth exploring. San Francisco is packed with secret hideouts. One of my all-time favorites has to be the Mechanics Institute Library and Chess Room—and the rather...

490 Pacific Ave, San Francisco, CA 94133, USA
Cotogna is dangerously close to the AFAR Media offices. This rustic sister restaurant to Quince opened last year, and the roomy bar is a cozy place to sit mid-day with a double espresso served neat in a Heath Ceramics cup. The pastas are all...

San Francisco isn't normally known for its churches, but they have some beautiful ones.

Papa Gianni is known for the best espresso outside of Europe as well as the longest-running show in San Francisco. "The Caffe Trieste Saturday Concert has evolved from a small, family show with guitar and mandolin ensemble into an Italian-flavored...
