Things to do in San Francisco on a weekday

You’re in one of the most popular, most artistic, and most culturally diverse cities in the country for a week, and you have no idea what to do or where to go. While there are countless of places you can check out for sure, most of them will require having more than that secret $20 you have wedged in between your library card and gym membership card you never use. Let’s face it – when you’re on a week-long trip and on a tight budget, your options are quite limited… JUST KIDDING! Sure, the city by the bay may in fact be one of the most expensive places to be in, but you don’t have to look under a rock to find things to do in San Francisco on a weekday for cheap. In fact, you can even find stuff to do for free! If you happen to be in the bay area this week to bid adieu to February and say hey to a (hopefully more climate-bearable) March, you can do so by enjoying a couple of these events with your friends or on your own.

Top 5 Places in San Francisco

The Golden Gate to a Perfect Vacation

  A San Francisco visit is an unforgettable ‘Attraction Rush’ that will make you rich for life. But what should you do first in a city where every neighborhood’s personality draws tourists like a magnet and even dining out is an attraction in itself? Don’t panic! We narrowed down the options to a list of top places & activities in San Fran. This way, you’ll get to experience the famous eccentric ‘Frisco spirit, taste its mouthwatering cuisine and discover the city’s unique secrets (which you’ll be eager to share with the whole world).  

Alcatraz gives you cold sweats and awesome memories

Would you dare to step into Al ‘Scarface’ Capone’s cell and sit on the chair where George ‘Machine Gun’ Kelly used to dine? Then you must escape to Alcatraz, America’s first military prison. The list of the criminals doing time there was rather short: about 250 fellows. But each and every one of them was on America’s Most Wanted list. The Rock’s most appraised tour is Alcatraz Night Tour. You’ll take a self guided tour and hear the story of the prison in your headphones, sometimes narrated by the prisoners who inhabited it. The Rock looks exactly as it was when closed down. So this will probably make even more interesting your walk in the moonlit rooms, while you hear in your headphones creepy sounds of clinking forks and knives (when you visit the dining room). The tour is exciting, haunting and eerie. But that’s exactly how you want it to be, isn’t it? And a piece of advice: book the tour weeks in advance so you make sure you visit Alcatraz when you come to San Francisco.  

Fisherman’s Wharf: great walk & amazing views

Roaming around the Wharf is fun and instructive. Musee Mecanique displays an impressive collection of arcade machines that will entertain you for hours and at USS Pampanito you get the chance to visit a World War II submarine which sank six Imperial Japanese ships. While you walk around the bay, don’t forget to say hello to the sea lions, listen to the talented street musicians and maybe enjoy a ferry ride.  

Swan Oyster Depot: where you savor fresh-off-the-boat seafood

 Are you hungry? Swan Oyster Depot is ten minutes away from the Wharf and people who visited swear that they could come to San Fran just to have a meal at the most special place on the planet. After you try it, tell us what you enjoyed the most: the flavor of the smoked fish, the insanely fresh oysters or the five-star seafood cocktail? Be careful! The clam chowder is so good it’s addictive! Golden Gate Bridge: San Francisco’s most famous icon In movies, postcards, pictures… it doesn’t matter where, but EVERYBODY saw Golden Gate Bridge at least once. It is an amazing experience to walk or cross by bike ‘the most photographed bridge in the world’ (according to Frommer’s Travel Guide).  

Sutro Baths: a well-kept magnificent secret

      The eccentric millionaire Adolph Sutro had big plans in 1894: he built a huge extravagant public bathhouse that could accommodate 10.000 people at the same time. Today only the ruins of this visionary and ambitious project can be visited. But the immensity of the construction and its position next to the ocean makes the place look dramatic and beautiful. The romantics appreciate the picturesque sunsets, cold salty breeze and the sounds of waves crashing onto the rocks. It is definitely the Wonderland of passionate photographers. And it is beyond doubt a San Francisco landmark worth visiting.
