Your San Francisco vacation

With a cool California vibe mixed with glitzy European sophistication, San Francisco is a hub of ethnic enclaves and people wooed to the Pacific Coast. Visit hippie history in the Haight or shop the glamorous Union Square. Take a cable car up Nob Hill and swoon over Victorian homes and San Francisco Bay views.

Despite the city's high price reputation, CheapTickets can help you keep your San Francisco travel budget in check with these funds-friendly highlights.

Best time to take a vacation to San Francisco

San Francisco is a great city to visit any time of the year, with a mild climate thanks to water on three sides. However, the summer fog is notorious, and many tourists on their San Francisco vacations find themselves purchasing sweatshirts to stay warm. The spring and fall are often warmer and sunnier, while winters can be rainy. Be aware that the City by the Bay is known for its microclimates, which means visitors need to be prepared for weather at nearly any time of year. A sunny day in Golden Gate Park can turn sharply cooler when a wall of fog blows in, while on the same day, the Downtown area is bright and warm.

Insider tips for San Francisco travel

Farmers Market

The Saturday Farmers Market at the Ferry Building is famous, but the all-day Wednesday Farmer’s Market at Civic Center Plaza has better value for fruit and produce.

Bourbon & Branch

Speakeasies and handcrafted cocktails are all the rage in San Francisco, so head to Bourbon & Branch or Local Edition to see what the fuss is about.

Twin Peaks

San Francisco vacations are all about the views, and Twin Peaks offers some of the best in a 360-degree panorama.

Mission District

The Mission District from 14th Street to 23rd Street offers a charming array of vintage stores and some of San Francisco’s best dining spots.

Outerlands

Drop by Outerlands for the food if you find yourself hungry way out by Ocean Beach during your San Francisco excursion.

San Francisco highlights

Golden Gate Bridge

From its russet-painted towers to its sprawling span, you can't fully appreciate the scale of the Golden Gate Bridge until you're actually on it. Ride or walk across, or just gaze in awe at one from one of the many vantage points around the city on your San Francisco travels. Connecting San Francisco to Marin County, the bridge is the only road to exit San Francisco to the north, and is part of the historic U.S. Route 1.

Palace of Fine Arts

Located in San Francisco's Marina neighborhood, the Palace of Fine Arts is one of the few surviving structures from the 1915 Panama-Pacific International Exposition. Marvel the cinematic Greco-Roman style, and snap photos along the serene lagoon.

Asian Art Museum

Experience the Orient on your San Francisco vacation. With a massive collection of Asian art from paintings to ceramics, the Asian Art Museum also boasts one of the oldest Chinese Buddhas on the planet. Visit on Thursday nights for the bargain $5 admission.

Fisherman's Wharf

This seaside enclave teems with San Francisco landmarks, including Pier 39 and Ghirardelli Square. Watch colorful street performers along the promenade, and indulge in some of the best dining in San Francisco. Salivate over the locally-made chocolate and smells of fresh sourdough bread baking.

San Francisco Modern Art Museum (SFMOMA)

From Frida Kahlo to Henri Matisse, discover a treasure trove of 20th-century artworks on your San Francisco vacation at one of the most renowned museums on the West Coast. Enjoy free admission on the first Tuesday of every month, or score half-price admission on Thursday nights.
