Best San Francisco Budget Attractions



Description:

San Francisco has many affordable attractions and outdoor activities to thrill people of all ages. Golden Gate Park has tons of nooks and crannies to explore, aside from its paid attractions. Muir Woods has a nominal admission fee and boasts hours and hours of nature walks and challenging hikes that extend to Mt. Tamalpais and Stinson Beach. Visiting Angel Island is free; you only have to cover the cost of the ferry ride, which in and of itself offers priceless views of the bay. Riding a Cable Car is also an inexpensive way to experience the roller coaster-worthy San Francisco hills. Take the Hyde Street line to the top of Lombard Street, one of the city’s most famous sights. If your timing works out, you can bypass costly admission fees on monthly free days at many of the city’s museums. Hungry for history? The centuries-old Mission Dolores has a $3 admission fee. Just plain hungry? Chow down at Pancho Villa for the city’s tastiest burritos—also the best dining deal in town.
