San Francisco Solo Travel Tips

Transamerica Pyramid, San Francisco

Transamerica Pyramid, San Francisco

San Francisco is often considered the center of the food capital of North America. It does make sense to go for a quick meal and try it out yourself. There’s a whole lot of variety from the cuisines world over. I recommend check restaurant reviews on tripadvisor or Yelp for restaurant menu and timings.

Festivals, festivals and more festivals! There are so many street festivals and concerts happening in SF all year long. The best SF festivals are Bay to Breakers, Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, and the Folsom Street Fair.

San Francisco all about its neighborhoods. Each of these neighborhoods are unique in their own right, offering you an ambiance which you won’t find anywhere else.

However, be safe and not walk around late in the deserted lanes. There are certain areas in San Francisco which one should avoid walking late at night – Certain areas of SOMA and the Tenderloin.

San Francisco is very unpredictable as it can rain and shine in no time. I advise you to strongly have a wind cheater which can also double as a rain jacket. SF isn’t cold in terms of temperature but the strong winds can certainly make you feel chilly! Also, pack a pair of good walking shoes with thick soles if you plan to go around on foot. This is specially true when you are out exploring the golden gate Park.

Golden gate and the Golden Gate Park are the top attraction of San Francisco. Be prepared to spend a full day in the Golden Gate Park. I recommend you to check out de Young Museum, SF Botanical Garden, Japanese Tea Garden, and the Academy of Sciences. There are also so many views points around the Golden Gate park, from where you can enjoy a beautiful sunset!

SF is known for its cable car system which has been running for decades. I recommend you take a cable car in San Francisco as a part of experience. Go for the California Street Line as the queue for the cable are much shorter. Rides are however not cheap, it costs about $7 one way.

Taking a cab in San Francisco can be very expensive. Instead go for the cheaper public transport. There are two major network of public transport available in SF. One is called Muni and includes the buses, light rail, and cable cars. The other one is called BART which is the subway system. There are of-course day passes available if you intend go around frequently. If you really need a cab, go for a Uber or Lyft.
