With so much to see in San Francisco, where do you start? Here are the Top choices destinations and fun things to do among San Francisco visitors. The number one place for fun in San Francisco is Golden Gate Park because there's literally something to appeal to everyone! Kids and adult alike will love attractions like the Primate Discovery Center at the San Francisco Zoo or the fabulous natural history exhibits at the Academy of Sciences. You can take a stroll through the park during fair weather and watch the marksmanship of the archers down at the archery range or visit the historic Dutch windmill.
For more cool things to do, head down to the marina where you can explore the massive World War II ship, the SS Jeremiah O'Brien. It's the last of its kind and if you're lucky and plan in advance, you can even spend the night on it. Also down on the waterfront is the Ferry Building Marketplace, where foodies can shop the farmer's market or sample local fair from a variety of restaurants. Sports fans won't want to miss a Giants game at AT&T Park, where every seat is a good seat!
Whether you're a science nerd or not, you can't get much cooler than the very hands-on experiments at the Exploratorium, located at the Palace of Fine Arts. The building and its lagoon are likely to be familiar from photographs and posters you've seen of San Francisco. Once a month they even have an "adults only" night with guest lectures and a cash bar! These lists include the most popular and fun things to do in San Francisco, its most popular tourist attractions and activities.
