A Quick look at things to see and do in the Golden Gate City
For those who are avid fans of championship golf, the 2021 US Women’s Open Golf Championship will be held, for the first time, at Olympic Club in San Francisco. It’s a four-day sport event, which starts from June 3 to 6.
If you’re planning to watch the US Women's Open, don’t miss the chance to travel around the Golden Gate City. You’ll be in the beautiful and vibrant San Francisco, so you might as well enjoy the food, drinks, sounds, sites, and scenery the city has to offer. But where do you start your San Francisco travel diaries? Here’s a list of the things you do while in the city.
Golden Gate Bridge
This is a must-see, especially if it's your first visit to San Francisco. The Golden Gate Bridge, which got its name from the Golden Gate Strait, is undeniably the city's most popular tourist site. When the skies are clear, you can see its beauty, even more so when the sun sets as the oranges arches complement the dusk skies. There are many areas where you can photograph the Golden Gate Bridge, but the best spot is the Golden Gate Bridge Vista Point.
Visit The Walt Disney Family Museum
If your visit to San Francisco is also a family trip, take a short stop at the Walt Disney Family Museum. You'll get a glimpse of how the iconic creator started his company and a closer look at the artists' work that brought classic Disney characters to life. Although there are no rides and other fan-fare events, kids will still enjoy the colorful galleries and miniature versions of the famous Disneyland. Isn't it exciting?
Walk Around the Presidio Trails
Nothing beats a relaxing walk around nature. If you're looking for a calm, quiet time away from the hustle and bustle, head to the Presidio Trails. This tourist attraction is highly known for its location - at the southern end of the Golden Gate Bridge. You can also go to this place to see breathtaking views of the city. In addition to that, the Presidio Trails has 12 hiking trails, and each of them offers a different hiking experience. There are easy trails, but there are also trails that can be quite the challenge. But whichever hiking trail you take, you'll still be mesmerized by the city's picturesque scenery.
Experience the City’s Tastes
Of course, a huge part of traveling is eating, and a great way to enjoy your San Francisco stay is by experiencing the city's taste. Perhaps, after watching on the first day, you can go on a food trip. Many restaurants offer different cuisines, ranging from Asian dishes, European delicacies, Hispanic palates to the usual American meals.
Some of the best and well-recommended restaurants to try are Sotto Mare, Sam Wo Restaurant, House of Prime Rib, Nari, Daeho Kalbijjim & Beef Soup, Aziza, and a whole lot more. With a wide range of food choices, you can say that San Francisco's multicultural side is evident in its food.
Quick Stops at Wine Countries
After having a food trip, don't miss the chance to visit and experience the wine country. You can't leave San Francisco without going to Napa. It's one of the famous wine countries in California, and here you can taste some of the most expensive wine selections. If you don't want overwhelming wineries, you can go to Sonoma, where wineries are smaller, giving off a more intimate vibe. There is even a chance that you'll meet the winemakers while tasting wine with them. Sonoma also offers stunning natural landscapes and bodies of water, including the Pacific coastline, Lake Sonoma, and the Russian River. Either way, you won't go wrong with this adventure while you're in San Francisco.
