Depending on what type of place you prefer to be based in while you explore this city, there is somewhere for all appetites in San Francisco. Neighbourhoods range from the upmarket districts with their historical landmarks and cultural hotspots, to the arty more leftfield neighbourhoods with their independent galleries, stores and traditional cafés and bars, through to the waterfront area with its tourist attractions. Or base yourself in Oakland – less than 30 minutes from Downtown San Francisco.
The Financial District is the place to stay if you’re in town for business. There’s also plenty in this area to amuse those staying here on holiday. Home to some of the city’s best high-end leisure activities, including the Embarcadero Center with its two movie theatres, shopping mall, bars and restaurants, or the famous Ferry Building with its high-quality farmers’ market and food stalls, right on San Francisco Bay. Architecturally Nob Hill is where you’ll see historic buildings and experience traditionally ‘classy’ San Francisco. Think swanky cocktail lounges, upmarket restaurants, the beautiful Huntington Park (don’t miss its replica of Rome’s Fountain of the Tortoises), and The Masonic, an iconic concert venue that is a wonderful example of mid-century architecture. For a different side to San Francisco, base yourself in SoMa (South of Market) where you’ll come across plenty of places to eat and drink, nightclubs and a whole host of discount stores.
