"The city by the bay is a foodies dream come true"
Author: , a Hotel Planner from , reviewed on 05-Nov-2013
Score of City:
5.0 / 5

San Francisco is one of the most culturally diverse and beautiful cities in the world and one of my favorite places to visit. The City by the Bay is a foodies dream come true and home to some of the best restaurants in the country. If you like to eat then San Francisco is definitely a place you should visit. It's location next to the San Francisco Bay provides some interesting climate conditions so don't forget to take some warm clothes with you because it can easily go from mid-70's during the day to low 40's at night. With so much to do it's hard to recommend any single place to visit but if you have time I highly recommend visiting Napa Valley or Sonoma Valley. Even if you're not a wine drinker it's a beautiful area full of some of the top wineries in the the United States located a short drive north of San Francisco.

"Meetings in San Francisco"
Score 5.0 / 5

San Francisco, the city by the bay, is 7 miles by 7 miles and comprised of a diverse array of neighborhoods such as China Town, North Beach, the Mission District, Union Square, Japantown, SoMa and so much more. The beauty of the this city you can walk or travel by cable car to see all of the sites! This is an excellent city to visit and also make day trips to Muir Woods or Napa Valley. You can rely on September and October to be the best weather months (although the weather is pretty temperate and sits around 70 degrees regularly recommendation: always dress in layers). This city also prides itself in locally made and crafted foods and shops and its diverse cultural population.

"Fun Group Trip"
Score 4.0 / 5

We went to Alcatraz and Pier 39. It was lots of fun and most of our middle school students hadn't been there before. The Alcatraz tour staff were all pleasant and efficient. Weather was excellent, and we were very lucky to find parking for our charter bus (fed a meter across the street from Pier 39 using a credit card) across the street from Pier 39 with easy access back onto the main street out.

"Pier 39 and Exploratorium were highlights in this fantastic city."
Score 5.0 / 5

Pier 39 was a lot of fun, the boat tour to Alcatraz and then touring Alcatraz was fantastic!! The group also really enjoyed riding the trolley, but you had to wait an hour to ride it. We went to Chinatown, which was okay, but not as much fun as Pier 39. The Exploratorium was fantastic. We went with girls ages 5th-7th, could have spend three days in there alone!! Also, when you go there, definitely plan on doing the tactile dome for an extra $15.

, from 15-May-2014
"Lots to Enjoy"
Score 4.0 / 5

People are great. Enjoyed sourdough bread with clam chowder and king crabs on Pier 39. I love Chinatown, enjoyed dim sum, Peking duck, quails, pork ribs. Traveling on the cable car throughout the city. Alcatraz tour was great. Golden Gate bridge tour.

"A beautiful city with so many attractions."
Score 5.0 / 5

San Francisco is truly a beautiful city with so many attractions. Some of the must see attractions - Union Square, Fisherman's Wharf, Golden Gate Bridge and China town. You must save time take a cruise to Alcatraz. Night life is amazing in San Francisco. Shopping at the Macys's (7 floors) in Union Square is a lot of fun.

"There is a reason people travel from all over to visit"
Score 5.0 / 5

San Francisco has all of the culture, creativity, passion, industriousness, and individuality of a true 'city of the world' ... compressed into a 7x7 mile square. There is a reason people travel from all over to visit, and many of the best minds and talents stay for good. This city constantly impresses me - there is ALWAYS something happening, something to see or do or participate in. Any quick search of local events will turn up concerts, parades, film screenings, art shows, and much more, literally on a daily basis. Despite its small size, San Francisco feels like 20 cities packed into one. They say each neighborhood has its own unique flair... I think it's more accurate to say that they are each their own micro-world. Anyone visiting for the first time should try to see as many corners of the city as possible. You will be amazed how drastic a change a 15 minute walk in any direction can make. Do the tourist-y things... go to Haight-Ashbury, Chinatown, Fisherman's Wharf, ect... but don't forget to leave some time just to wander around. You'll be happy you did. San Francisco is also home to some of the warmest and outgoing people I have encountered (credit the infections feeling of excitement and acceptance), so don't be afraid to start up a conversation with someone you don't know. San Francisco is renowned for its restaurants (every type of food) so ask for some local suggestions and make your meals count. Come hungry and with a sense of adventure and you will have a fantastic time in this city!

"I love the city close to the beginning of summer"
Score 4.0 / 5

San Francisco is an exciting city. I have been there a few times and I'm never disappointed. Home of the infamous Alcatraz prison, has plenty of historical sites and tourist attractions. I love the city close to the beginning of summer when it's still cool but sunny as well. You will find some of the best seafood on Fisherman's Wharf, and after lunch there is a Ghirardelli factory up the hill with samples of their chocolate.

, from 01-Nov-2013
"Mostly very interesting"
Score 5.0 / 5

Mostly very interesting city. The area around where I stayed was not very safe late at night or early morning due to lots of homeless people living on streets.
