Hostelling International Tripbook for

San Francisco

12 Entries

Hop onto a cable car and enjoy California's liberal and artistic San Francisco. Choose which neighbourhood to base yourself in with endless things to do in each and plenty of hostel options. Visit the Golden Gate Park, home to various attractions including Strawberry Hill, the highest point in the park offering spectacular views of the distant Mount Tamalpais and the famous Golden Gate Bridge. If you’re visiting in summer, it’s also worth going to the Outside Lands Festival – a music and arts festival held every August in the park. For lunch on the go try a delicious ‘super burrito’ packed full of meats or beans, rice, cheese, guacamole, salsa, and more. Don’t forget to spot the sea lions at Pier 39, Fisherman’s Wharf, and while you’re there, pop over to Alcatraz: the island was once home to the inescapable prison which housed infamous gangster Al Capone.
