Now, we know you’re probably not going to jet across the world to spend a weekend in San Francisco. It is a pretty long flight after all. However, if you’re travelling down the west coast of the USA and have some time, why not spend a couple of days in San Francisco, home to the Golden Gate Bridge, the winding Lombard Street and this year’s 2016 Super Bowl 50. If you fancy taking a look around this famous American city, this is what you need to do on a weekend in San Francisco.
One of San Francisco’s most iconic sights, the Golden Gate Bridge is a must see if you’re here for a weekend. This 1.7 mile structure crosses over the Golden Gate Strait from San Francisco to Marin County and is best seen from viewpoints such as Marshall Beach, Fort Point or Battery Spencer. Walking across is one of the most common ways to experience the Golden Gate Bridge but cycling along the designated pathways can also be a great way to see the spectacular views of San Francisco.
