San Francisco travel tips

1) Select and visit the most attractive areas of Golden Gate Park in San Francisco

The Golden Gate Park is located on a huge territory. You can visit ten lakes, a rose garden, a Japanese garden, or a botanical garden. Decide which part of the park you want to see from the very beginning, as you definitely won't be able to walk around the entire park in one day.

2) Airbnb loses heavily to hotels in San Francisco in terms of housing costs

Although Airbnb originated in San Francisco as an alternative to hotels, it can be more expensive now than many hotels, so be sure to compare the rates in the apps. The cost of a good hotel is on average $120-150 (€100-130) per night.

3) Start your typical San Francisco shopping from Haight Street

California fashion obliges you to get comfortable shoes made from sustainable materials, a yoga outfit, and vintage plaid shirts and jeans. It's better to choose unique designer souvenirs, crazy outfits for Burning Man, or Halloween on Haight Street. Also, check out the San Francisco Mercantile.
