San Francisco

Must do's and don'ts for a San Francisco first timer in March?

I'm probably gonna be hitting SF in March with some companion. Planning to get a couple days off and also attend to some conferences. I would really love to see the small and not-so-crowded places in the city.

Any insights will be appreciated.

The Warfield or The Fillmore for a concert.

March is a great time in San Francisco. I recommend a hop on, hop off bus tour. Start early and make sure to get off De Young Museum and Golden Gate Bridge.

Bring layers for clothing and an umbrella. Enjoy this great city and remember not to call it Frisco or San Fran!

Musée Mécanique -- A great little spot that houses a bunch of coin-operated arcade games. Anything from watching a piano that plays by itself to Cruisin' USA.

Dandelion Chocolate -- For some of the most amazing chocolate you'll ever taste. Free tours, all you have to do is ask!

Corona Heights Park -- The best views of the city are here.

Radish -- Delicious food! Go here for brunch before 10am for no wait.

Pika Pika -- They have a bunch of photobooths imported from Japan.

First off, San Francisco is amazing so you're bound to have a good time no matter what you do. If you can get reservations, State Bird Provisions is one of the best restaurants in the city. I definitely second Bi-Rite Market creamery, delicious ice cream! 

Night life at California Academy of Sciences is really fun on Thursday nights to nerd out. If you're open-minded (you should be, if you're visiting San Francisco) check into going on a tour at San Francisco Armory and then have a drink at their super sexy club. 

Have fun!

HI Cristobal, 

Since it's your first time in SF, I think it'll be good for you to focus your time on a few neighborhoods and not try to do too much. You mentioned that you're attending conferences, so I'm assuming you're staying around downtown/SOMA area. That's a pretty good place to start. 

A potential day could start with Jack Kerouac Alley and the Beat Museum where you can explore the history of the beat generation in SF. 

From there it's a quick walk to San Francisco Chinatown, where you can get some baked goods at Golden Gate Bakery. I recommend getting the egg custard tarts. They are my favorite. 

You can buy your food to go, and eat them at Portsmouth Square Plaza. It's a relaxing place to sit and relax for a bit. 

From there you can check out one of the many novelty shops. Peking Bazaar has a great selection of products and souvenirs. 

If you know Banksy, then you should check out his mural near the corner of Grant Ave and Commercial street, near Eastern Bakery

From there you should see the Transamerica Pyramid. Walk by it to see one of the more iconic buildings of San Francisco. 

Keep walking towards the water towards the Ferry Building where you may find the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market. This is a great place to have lunch or to pick up food to go. If you got your food to go, then head South along the water to Cupid's Span. You can't miss it, it's the giant bow and arrow sculpture. There are benches nearby where you can enjoy your to-go lunch and enjoy views of the bay and the San Francisco – Oakland Bay Bridge

From here you have lots of options. You can take the cable car up the hill towards Grace Cathedral and Top of the Mark,

or you can take a bus and go to Yerba Buena Gardens and San Francisco Museum of Modern Art

And if you want to stay close to the water, you can walk to AT&T Park and walk by the marina. No matter where you go, you'll have some great views of the city and some good bars/restaurants to try. 

Let me know if you want more recommendations or help planning your stay!
