TOP 10

Things to see & do in San Francisco

Not sure where to start with your San Francisco trip? Here are some of the city`s most popular destinations, which we definitely recommend for first-time groups or anyone who wants to experience San Francisco`s icons. From science museums to tucked-away neighborhoods to gorgeous parks, San Francisco has something for everybody:


Golden Gate Bridge

the golden gate bridge in san francisco with fog

As it`s probably the first thing that comes to mind when you think “San Francisco,” it`s safe to say that the Golden Gate Bridge is San Francisco`s most iconic landmark. This 4,000-foot bridge connects San Francisco to the Golden Gate National Recreation Area in Marin County just across the water. Your charter bus can take you on a ride across the bridge if you`d like, but if you want a great photo op with the bridge in the background, we recommend heading to the Presidio, Golden Gate Park, or the Golden Gate Observation Deck. You can also have your charter bus drop you off at the visitor`s center if you`d like to walk the pedestrian portion of the bridge.

Address: Golden Gate Bridge, Coastal Trail, San Francisco, CA 94129
Phone: (415) 426-5220

Golden Gate Park

After you`ve laid eyes on San Francisco`s iconic Golden Gate Bridge, spend the day exploring this 1,000-acre park just a short drive away! If you`re visiting on a day that isn`t too hot, your group can enjoy a stroll through miles of green walking trails, visit the Japanese Tea Garden or the San Francisco Botanical Garden, have a picnic in any of the designated picnic areas, or let the kids get their energy out on playgrounds. On days when the California sun is beating down, you can stay in the air conditioning at the de Young Museum or the California Academy of Sciences natural history museum.

Address: 501 Stanyan St, San Francisco, CA 94117
Phone: (415) 831-2700

Alcatraz Island

This former maximum-security prison was once the home of infamous criminals like Al Capone, Machine Gun Kelly, and Robert Stroud. Today, Alcatraz acts as a landmark and tourist attraction at which visitors can explore the prison`s history both by day and by night. If you choose to add Alcatraz to your itinerary, your charter bus driver will drop off your group at Pier 33 where the ferries depart for the island and pick you up once your ferry has returned.

Address: Pier 33, San Francisco, CA 94133
Phone: (415) 561-4900

California Academy of Sciences

The California Academy of Sciences, located in previously-mentioned Golden Gate Park, is a perfect spot for school field trips or science buffs of all ages. The museum covers all things science and natural history and even includes a living indoor rainforest. Most notably, the museum is home to one of the largest planetarium domes in the world, and with over 46 million specimens in-house, it is also one of the largest natural history museums in the world.

Phone: (415) 379-8000

Pier 39/Fisherman`s Wharf

While it`s commonly dismissed as just another tourist trap, Pier 39 and the Fisherman`s Wharf area are perfect if you`re looking for lively entertainment and beautiful waterfront views. Highlights include Pier 39`s famous sunbathing sea lions, lots of delicious seafood that`s guaranteed to be fresh, boutique souvenir shops, and regular performances along the boardwalk. Fisherman`s Wharf also offers extensive parking lot areas, which makes it a great place to park your charter bus in between drop-offs around San Francisco.

Address: Beach Street & The Embarcadero, San Francisco, CA 94133
Phone: (415) 705-5500

Muir Woods National Monument

North of San Francisco lies Muir Woods, home to some of California`s famous centuries-old redwood trees. There are 6 miles` worth of hiking trails of varying levels of difficulty, all of which provide lots of opportunities to admire the famous towering trees. If you`re ready to escape the hustle and bustle of San Francisco, this is a great place to unwind and find some quiet.

Address: 1 Muir Woods Rd, Mill Valley, CA 94941
Phone: (415) 561-2850

The Presidio

the palace of fine arts at the presidio san francisco

The Presidio isn`t just a great stop for views of the Golden Gate Bridge, though we do recommend getting a few pictures at Baker Beach or the Golden Gate Overlook! In this park, visitors can explore history at the Korean War Memorial or the Fort Point National Historic Site, sprawl out on the Main Parade Lawn to soak up some sun, or play a round of golf at the public Presidio Golf Course.

Presidio Visitor Center 
Address: 210 Lincoln Boulevard on the Presidio's Main Post, San Francisco, CA 94129
Phone: (415) 561-4323

Lombard Street

Unlike other stores, museums, or landmarks, Lombard Street is just that—a street. But its zig-zaggy turns have earned it the nickname “The Crookedest Street in the World” and secured its spot as a tourist attraction in its own right. It`s great for a photo op or for a light workout if you're in the mood to walk up or down its twists and turns. Lombard Street may a bit too tight for your charter bus to maneuver, but your driver will happily drop off your group nearby and pick you up when you`re ready to move on to the next stop.


Oracle Park

This ballpark is home to the renowned San Francisco Giants and holds the distinction of being one of only 3 ballparks in the United States to be located on water. Check out a Giants game if you`re in town during baseball season, or take your group on a guided tour of the ballpark where you can learn about the history of the team and of the park. Whether you`re a die-hard baseball fan or a casual viewer, the panoramic views of the Bay from the seats can`t be beat.

Visitors can enter through the authentic Dragon`s Gate and explore winding alleys filled with authentic eateries, herbalist shops, bakeries, cocktail lounges, karaoke bars, and more.

Address: Bush St, Grant Ave, San Francisco, CA 94108


San Francisco`s Top Neighborhoods

For being relatively small by “major city” standards (48 square miles, while Los Angeles sprawls over 503 square miles and Chicago covers 234 square miles), San Francisco packs over 100 distinct neighborhoods into its city limits, all with unique cultures, attractions, restaurants, and more. Here are a few of our favorites that we definitely recommend seeing on your San Francisco group trip!

South Market (SoMa)

SoMa is a collection of a few smaller neighborhoods, including South Beach and Mission Bay. Here, you can cheer for the Giants at Oracle Park, explore the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art`s world-class collection, dip your toes into the world of San Francisco`s craft breweries, and even ice skate year-round (even when the San Francisco heat is beating down!) at the Yerba Buena Ice Skating & Bowling Center. San Francisco`s largest convention center is also located in South Market if you`re planning a corporate event or other large gathering.

North Beach

North Beach is the perfect stop for literature lovers. It was once the home of literary greats like Jack Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg, and Lawrence Ferlinghetti, whose legacies live on in the City Lights Bookstore and Beat Museum. North Beach is also San Francisco`s “Little Italy,” and is a great place to explore if you`re craving some authentic Italian food. The neighborhood`s charm earned it a spot as one of ten “Great Neighborhoods in America” by the American Planning Association.

Financial District

The Financial District is the center of San Francisco business, and as such, it`s filled with all sorts of upscale dining establishments and classy bars that come to life during happy hour. Head to Tadich Grill, the state`s oldest restaurant (and the country`s third-oldest) for a delicious dinner or take in some views at a rooftop bar. Shopping opportunities abound at any of the neighborhood`s numerous malls, and if you`re looking to ring in a new year in San Francisco, you can take part in the city`s central New Year`s Eve celebration spot at Justin Herman Plaza.

The Castro

As one of the United States` first gay neighborhoods, The Castro acts as a world-renowned symbol of LGBTQ+ activism and events and was once considered a “gay mecca” in the late 1960s as the Summer of Love progressed in the neighboring Haight-Ashbury district. This neighborhood is packed with LGBTQ+ history at landmarks such as Pink Triangle Park and the Human Rights Campaign Action Center. You can also find the Castro Theatre (a movie palace and designated Historic Landmark), a plethora of coffee shops and restaurants, vibrant street art, and plenty of annual festivals.
