As one of the most walkable cities, San Francisco has many accessible hot spots ranging from eateries to parks. Some must see's are described below.
Golden Gate Park is the biggest park in San Francisco, and while it is an attraction in and of itself, its vast grounds house various others. Two of which are the Japanese Botanical Gardens and the de Young Museum. This is not to mention the various festivals that are held on the park grounds. Check to see what festivals or events are during your stay.
The locally notorious Dolores Park is nestled in the Mission District where locals and travelers alike can enjoy some Bi-Rite ice cream, or a lunch to go.
If we had to pick two amazing specialty sandwich shops, we highly recommend Bite and Deli Board. Anything with house made rotisserie chicken at Bite is unforgettable, and Deli Board has an intimidating selection of signature corned beef and brisket sandwiches.
Hayes Valley is one of the most endearing neighborhoods of San Francisco. There is an authentic German beer garden there by the name of Biergarten. Didn't expect that did you? They also serve locally sourced food, try their Burger Wednesdays.
There are of course various tours that can be found in and around the renowned Embarcadero. Such as bike tours, some casual walking tours, and even whale watching. Though, if you feel like going solo, try walking across the Golden Gate Bridge. It's a must have on a bucket list and there is something inherently satisfying about it.
Or visit Fort Point where history practically seeps from the walls. It is located on the Presidio with beautiful views of the water, and is just one of many San Francisco historical points of interest.

Twin Peaks, the second highest peaks in San Francisco, are located right in center of the city and offer the most expansive views of the city and surrounding bay area.
