Considering visiting San Francisco? While for many this amazing metropolis is by far the most beautiful city of America’s western shores, all cities have their traits and drawbacks – and San Francisco is no exception, even though its positives far outnumber the negatives.
Still, having a chart of Do’s and don’ts can mark the difference between merely enjoying the visit to San Francisco, and having the time of your life! After consulting our experienced Segway Tour guides, we came up with a list of 6 visiting Do’s and Don’ts while touring San Francisco.
- Relax and enjoy the view
Be it the Coit Tower, the Golden Gate Bridge, the Mission Dolores Park or the Corona Heights Park, truly enjoying the enchanting soul of San Francisco requires taking some time to relax, pick a spot or two and just enjoy the view. In so great a metropolis, visitors are easy to get lost in running from attraction to attraction and sight to sigh, in a futile and exhausting effort to see everything the city has to offer within a few days.
Don’t fall into this pitfall. Sprinting from site to site will get you some pictures but no feeling, no sense of the San Francisco’s genuine charm. So, take our word for it and relax. Select a nice spot and just marvel the view.
- Take A Tour
Learning is one of the best things about travelling – along with visiting places you have never seen before, and touring combines them both! Seeing the world is far more educational and fan than school or college, since there are no books or writing involved, and all your senses contribute to your learning process. And since you are actually experiencing this in real life instead of reading it a book, it will stay with you for a long time.
You can travel in time and space, in worlds long gone without getting a headache, regardless of your age, educational background or interests; and enjoying this condensed educational course on a two-wheel vehicle surround by friends and family, thus having a chance to see most of San Francisco’s wonders in a little less than two hours rises the touring experience into a lifetime experience.
- Take great pictures at Baker’s Beach
Should it be a woman, San Francisco would work as a fashion model, being one of the most photogenic cities in the globe. Hence, take as many snapshots as possible, especially of its iconic golden bridge, from the sandy shore of the Baker’s Beach. The view of the sun setting across the water defies merely verbal description.
- Don’t Limit Yourself to Downtown
Sure, San Francisco’s downtown could lure into never getting on your foot in the suburbs, but that would a be a gross mistake. Remember what we have already said: there is no way you can visit every single sight and attraction of the city’s centre unless you are planning to stay there for a month. So, check the basic and then move out to the city’s outskirts. Some of its best sights await you there.
- Don’t Skip the Museums
Another trap few-days visitors often fall into is skipping the city’s museums altogether, in a desperate effort to see more of the city’s streets and outdoor attractions. San Francisco boasts some of the best museums in the world, such as the Bay Aquarium and the Academy of Sciences, and it would be a pity to be there for a few days and not visit at least a couple of them.
- Don't Miss out on the Parks
That is not very probable, but it happens, mostly in cases of visitors who come from rural areas and usually consider greenspaces far too familiar to spend time on visiting them. If you have thoughts like these, do your best to rid of them. San Francisco’s parks, like the Golden Gate Park, have far more in store for you than the meadows of your village!
Ah, there is one more thing you do not do when making your plans to visit the place – leave bookings for the last moment! So, join now our Segway tour around the city!
