San Francisco Tours
To know and see more of the city in the shortest time possible, get yourself signed up for the many different tours San Francisco has to offer! You can join a locally guided tour around the neighborhood or walk around with your friends and families. During Spring Break, you are sure to be joined by other young travelers.
There are private tours, fire engine tours, bike tours, tours on buses, Ride the Ducks of San Francisco Tours (where you ride around on a boat with wheels!) and historical tours. For a spooky experience, there are mystery tours, ghost tours, and murder tours where you will be taken to historic murder and haunting sites. During or after a tour, you can visit nearby restaurants and bars for some drinks and grub.
Informally recognized as the Crookedest Street in the World, Lombard Street is another one of San Francisco’s most visited sites. Each year, thousands of tourists and visitors make it a point to drive down or walk along its eight sharp hairpin turns.
Both sides of the street are lined with Russian Hill mansions and nicely manicured landscaping and gardens. You can take a spectacular picture of this scenic street at every curve. From the top, a wonderful view of the Coit Tower, Bay Bridge, and the San Francisco Bay can be seen.
Pier 35 and Embarcadero
Pier 35 is located in The Embarcadero towards the east of Pier 39. The pier is a major terminal for cruise ships like the Sea Princess, Sapphire Princess, and Star Princess that visit regularly throughout the year.
The Embarcadero also houses several other waterfront attractions. These include the 1898 Ferry Building filled with restaurants, gourmet shops, a farmer’s market, and the iconic clock tower. Several piers offer ferry rides to Alcatraz Island, Bay Bridge, and the Exploratorium. Aside from the chance to enjoy the outstanding views, the history and jaw-dropping beauty of large ships, this place is also a food-lover’s paradise.
A popular tourist attraction and shopping center, Pier 39 is also famous for offering a close and personal view of the California sea lions often found on its docks. It is located just along Fisherman’s Wharf near the Embarcadero, Chinatown, and the North Beach.
Aside from this, there are also street performers, restaurants, shops, the Aquarium of the Bay, a video arcade, and so much more! You can also ride a two-story carousel which is another unique feature of the pier. The many attractions, shops, entertainment and dining choices around the area make it a perfect spot for families or large groups of friends. No Spring Break traveler will get hungry or bored for sure!
Hyde Street Pier
A must-visit for history buffs, Hyde Street Pier at the west end of Fisherman’s Wharf holds several remarkable historical vessels as part of the San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park. For a reasonable fee, you can get on board and explore the historical ships.
Educational programs and music and arts activities are also offered. You can organize a self-guided tour or explore through Ranger-led tours through the video presentations, and interactive exhibits.
