Top Ten Free Things To Do In San Francisco

Who doesn’t like free things to do? Well I certainly do love free things!

This is a pretty awesome list of the Top Ten FREE Things to do in San Francisco. Of course many folks that visit San Francisco do visit Chinatown and anyone visiting Chinatown should not miss the Fortune Cookie Factory. It’s definitely in many of my Top Ten Lists. It’s a no brainer and it’s certainly worth going. Also most anyone that visits San Francisco rides the cable car – so why not learn all about how the cable car works? It’s definitely worth visiting the cable car museum especialy since it’s FREE right?

Well check out the rest of the list as there are some really fun things to do here in San Francisco for free. Walking across the Golden Gate Bridge is also one of my all time top ten free things to do. Not only do you get some pretty amazing close up shots of the Golden Gate Bridge but you also get some pretty amazing pics of the San Francisco Bay and the San Francisco skyline looking back into the city. It’s pretty awesome. Just don’t jump down! The Golden Gate Bridge is one of the most popular places to commit suicide. Pretty scary but even scarier if you experienced one.

Enjoy the list and enjoy doing all of the free things to do in San Francisco. Feel free to offer me some suggestions to more free things to do and I’ll be happy to compile part 2 of The Top Ten Things To Do In San Francisco!

Free Things To Do In San Francisco – The Crookedest Street In San Francisco – It’s Not Lombard Street!

Well tourists come to San Francisco thinking the crookedest street in San Francisco is Lombard Street but really it’s not it’s actually Vermont Street in the Potrero Hill neighborhood. So I decided to take a trip up to Vermont and shoot a brief video while down Vermont Street. The truth is it’s not as pretty as Lombard Street but yes it’s much more steep and crooked. So if you want a little off the wall experience and you are visiting San Francisco then take a drive out to Potrero Hill and check Vermont Street out. It’s FREE so go enjoy!

Here’s some info about Potrero Hill as well. Perhaps you can go to Anchor Steam Brewery for some tastes!
