24 Hours in San Franciso – Places to Visit

San Franciso is a beautiful city in California. Sometimes it feels so different to the rest of the state, maybe due to is micro climate with the bay. It is also one of the most compact cities I have been to, so many restaurants, bars and attractions in just 49 square miles.

If you are heading to the west coast of the United States, I would definitely recommend you spend a few days in San Francisco. However, many people use this city as a stop over when flying to Australia.

Here are just my top tips on what to do when you are in SF.

Catch a Cable Car at the corner of Powell and Market

The cable car dates back to 1873. British born Andrew Hallidie was inspired to build the cable car system when he saw horses die due to the steep hills of San Francisco. The system was copied in many places over the world including Dunedin in New Zealand. There are sill 3 cable lines that remain and which still run today. It costs $7 to take one single ride. Get there early as there are long lines for the cable car. If you go in July, there are the annual cable car bell ringing contests, which takes place on either the second or third Thursday of the month.
