The Yelp! page for The Golden Fire Hydrant is comprised of haikus devoted to the landmark – if that doesn’t tell you how locals feel about this find, nothing will.
The legend of The Golden Fire Hydrant goes like this: when San Francisco was in flames following the 1906 earthquake, many of the city’s fire hydrants failed; not this one, nicknamed “the little giant.” Legend has it that it saved the historic Mission District from being completely obliterated. Give it a hug when you visit!
CAS is a cool place for adults and kids to explore. It can get a little pricey, with an adult ticket starting around $35, but well worth the experience, as the California Academy of Sciences is huge, with an aquarium on the bottom floor. Take your time and wander.
There’s not a lot of seating at this popular burger joint, so be sure to try it at a not-busy time.
Trouble Coffee lovers rave about the “super strong” coffee and the “must try” toast. While a bit off-the-grid (is that random website even real?) with a simple menu, it’s worth trying at least once.
A hidden gem under the Golden Gate Bridge, this civil war-era fort was meant to protect the bay from invading ships that was never in combat – now open to the public.
Natives claim this spot is way better than Brenda’s for brunch, “and the little jazz trio on Sundays is everything.”
Ice cream to rattle your taste buds – try the secret breakfast. It’s a San Fran native’s favorite. And we won’t judge you if you order a whole cake in the flavor.
70s-style, 21+ nightclub with live music. San Franciscans love “Cool as F—,” a Britpop night.
The Seward Mini Park is not for the kiddos – complete with two steep slides, this is adults-only fun!
An awesome 21+ bowling alley (with family hours Saturday and Sunday 11 a.m. – 7 p.m.) where you can grab dinner, drinks, or brunch.
