If you’re traveling to San Francisco for the first time, don’t miss Fisherman’s Wharf, a bustling waterfront marketplace that doubles as a tourism hotspot complete with stores, restaurants and entertainment, as well as some of the freshest seafood around. From there, visit Chinatown for a change of pace, its authentic flavors and street-side vendors providing a unique experience.
Book your tickets to San Francisco for September to November to enjoy the best balance between pleasant weather and fewer tourists. Avoid the summer season if you can, as crowds surge during that time and the dense fog can obscure the breathtaking local vistas.
