Must-See Sights of San Francisco | Away Holidays

San Francisco is quite unique, in that whilst it is large, in terms of its many amenities and attractions, it is actually quite a small city, from a geographical perspective. This is great news for tourists, as it means that they don’t have to spend hours traipsing from one attraction to another, as many sights are within walking distance of each other.

Away Holidays

The Golden Gate Bridge is probably one of the most iconic structures in the USA; spanning over 1.7 miles, hundreds of thousands of vehicles travel across it each day. However, you don’t need a car in order to visit it, as there is a safe pedestrian pathway along the side. The views from the bridge are quite spectacular, and it’s certainly worth a visit if you love architecture and beautiful scenery.

Pier 39 is located in Fisherman’s Wharf; this waterfront marketplace is a favourite with many customers of Away Holidays. There are lots of shops and stalls to be found here, as well as street performers, dancers, live music, and even a community of wild sea lions, who reside in the waters by the pier. This is a lovely place to while away a few hours on a sunny afternoon and it’s just a short distance away from Ripley’s Believe it or not odditorium and the Wax Museum.

However, if you’re in need of some serious retail therapy, it’s best to head to Union Square; this is where you will find the top designer boutiques, including Powell, Stockton, Grant and Sutter, as well as all of the major departmental stores. Westfield shopping centre is home to some of the largest branches of Nordstrom and Bloomingdales.

If you find yourself missing Europe, then a trip to North Beach could be your best bet! This is San Francisco’s Italian quarter, and is not actually a beach, but rather a collection of charming European-style shops, restaurants and cafes, located around Washington Square. It is here that you’ll find the stunning Church of Stain Peter, as well as Coit Tower. If you climb up this tower, you’ll get to enjoy some beautiful views of the Bay and the city’s bridges. Away Holidays clients note that the tower itself is also quite beautiful, with murals which stretch from the floor to the ceilings, and depict scenes from the city during the 1930s.
