As Jim is from California, he has always had family living in or close to San Francisco, so we’ve been going there at least once a year for decades. Luckily, it’s a dynamic city where there is always something new to check out. We’ve done a lot, but we still have plenty of places to explore as well.

Just like all those wonderful cities that you’ve been to over and over, there are some things we do almost every time we visit, and we believe them to be the most important sights in the city as well. We’ve listed our top five experiences to have in this iconic city, and we hope you agree.
