Hey guys! I promised you to share some more about my trip to the west coast, where we explored the Californian coast line from San Francisco down to Los Angeles. I figured I start by something fun and short – 5 free things you can do in San Francisco! Who doesn’t love free things? πŸ˜‰

5 Free Things to Do in San Francisco

  1. Walk from Pier 39 to the Golden Gate bridge, along the promenade – yes, it’s quite the walk but you have lots of things to see on the way and it’s totally worth it!
  2. Walk the Golden Gate bridge both ways – in the best case in the late afternoon – so on the way there you will still have plenty of light and while walking back you will see the gorgeous sunset and golden light!
  3. Take the PresidiGo ShuttleΒ from the Presidio Park back to Embarcadero for free transport and a little city tour (or the other way around).
  4. Use the bathroom in the Ritz-Carlton next to China Town and enjoy their free flavored water and fortune cookies. πŸ˜‰
  5. Enjoy some of the many free art galleries, like the ZK Gallery on Jefferson street (next to Fisherman’s Wharf).

I know there are many, many more free things to do in San Francicso (see here or here), but those are 5 things that I actually did myself and had fun doing it. Posts about my general thoughts on San Fran, LA and the coast in between will arrive shortly on this blog, so make sure you stay up to date and don’t miss them. The best way is to sign up via e-mail (top bar, or right column) or like Curls’n’Chard on FacebookΒ and make sure you have the notifications on. That’s it for today – short and sweet! Probably not as sweet as the fortune cookies fromΒ the Ritz-Carlton though. πŸ˜€

  1. Awesome!!! I love the fact that on this post you have been quick and to the point, no bs and of course all that walking around would make you want to go to the bathroom, so I love the fact you even included that πŸ˜‰ keep ’em coming

    1. It really is beautiful – I love the golden evening light anyway – and being on such an iconic structure, makes it just amazing!

    1. To be honest, I think SF is kind of overrated πŸ˜‰ It’s nice and those places that I wrote about are lovely, but all in all the SF that people fell in love with and talk about doesn’t really exist anymore…I’ve never ever seen a city with so many homeless people, and I’ve traveled my fair share also around rather poor European countries where you would expect it. But SF, that was a whole other level :-/

  2. My husband and I are thinking of taking a trip to San Franciscco early next year and I like to idea riding in that free shuttle.

    1. The free shuttle is really convenient, it also goes around to different parts inside the Presidio park, which saves you quite a bit of walking πŸ™‚

    1. I think SF is a place that you should visit once in your lifetime πŸ™‚ I personally was a bit disappointed by the city…but I’m going to write about that in another post πŸ˜‰

    1. Hahahaha, well – I couldn’t help but include that one. It was really such a funny incident. We were wondering if we could even get in, without any trouble but yeah, no one even bat an eye πŸ˜‰
