San Francisco travel tips

1) Visit the San Francisco Zoo with endangered animals

In the southeast of San Francisco, you will find an amazing zoo. Animals of 250 species live in it, many of them are listed in the Red List. The entire territory of the zoo is divided into zones: Africa, Europe, Asia, etc. A ticket for adults costs $23 (€19.6), and $17 (€14.5) for children over 4 years old.

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.
