Visit some of San Francisco’s most celebrated cultural attractions:

Golden Gate Bridge
The Golden Gate Bridge connects San Francisco to California's northern counties. With its tremendous 746-foot tall towers, sweeping main cables, signature International Orange color, and Art Deco styling, it is a sensory experience featuring color, light, and sound. With more than 10 million annual visitors, be ready for crowds (especially during the summer) and changing weather conditions.

San Francisco Cable Car
Cable cars are a historic symbol recognized around the globe and offer real working transportation up the steep hills of San Francisco. The cable cars begin their runs at 6:00 a.m. and continue until midnight. From Union Square to the crest of Nob Hill, cable cars offer a thrilling way to move with the City. A ride on San Francisco's cable cars may be the most iconic and memorable of your entire trip to California. Even people who might dismiss cable cars as a cheesy tourist attraction will admit that there is something incredibly romantic about these rides.

Fisherman’s Wharf
As San Francisco’s most popular visitor destination, Fisherman’s Wharf offers a wide range of land, sea, and air activities. Many of the well-known sights of today were developed only in the last few decades. The original Meigg’s Wharf was once the main port of entry to San Francisco and an extremely industrious place. Lumber, food, and immigrants all arrived here, and railroads came right to the water’s edge to pick up building supplies for the rapidly growing city. Hardworking fishermen, both Chinese and Italian (who were often accompanied by their wives), set out to make a living by catching fish and crab in small vessels at the wharf.

Alcatraz
Alcatraz Island offers a close-up look at the site of the first lighthouse and U.S. built fort on the West Coast, the infamous federal penitentiary long off-limits to the public, and the history making 18 month occupation by Indians of All Tribes. Rich in history, there is also a natural side to the Rock — gardens, tide pools, bird colonies, and bay views beyond compare.

Chinatown
San Francisco has the oldest and second largest Chinatown in North America. Historically it was the starting point for most new Chinese immigrants, giving it a special place in the hearts of their families. Shop at the fantastic markets and souvenir shops, dine on authentic and inexpensive Chinese food, and visit the Chinese Historical Society of America and the Chinese Culture Center of San Francisco,

The Castro
The Castro District, commonly referenced as The Castro, was one of the first gay neighborhoods in the United States. Having transformed from a working-class neighborhood through the 1960s and 1970s, the Castro remains one of the most prominent symbols of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) activism and events in the world. Visitors will find diverse shopping, delectable dining, flamboyant bars, and unique events that caters to the LGBT community, but any and all are welcome to join in the fun.

Mission Dolores
Mission Dolores has always had a central place in the religious, civic, and cultural life of San Francisco. Misión San Francisco de Asís was founded June 29, 1776, under the direction of Father Junipero Serra and is both the oldest original intact Mission in California and the oldest building in San Francisco. Today, the Mission Dolores Parish comprises both the Basilica and the Old Mission.

San Francisco Museum of Modern Art
The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) has an internationally recognized collection of modern and contemporary art, and was the first museum on the West Coast devoted solely to 20th century art. The museum’s current collection includes over 33,000 works of painting, sculpture, photography, architecture, design, and media arts. They are displayed in 170,000 square feet (16,000 m2) of exhibition space, making the museum one of the largest in the United States overall, and one of the largest in the world for modern and contemporary art.
