When a long layover leaves you with hours to spare at the airport in San Francisco, break free from the terminal and go on an adventure. Because the city is overflowing with personality and attractions, you won’t run out of things to do in San Francisco in a day.
Sitting on the coast of Northern California, San Francisco is perhaps best known for its magnificent Golden Gate Bridge. Bike across to experience it up close, or hike to Lands End to view it against the cityscape. When it comes to getting to know the city’s neighborhoods, each nook has it owns flavor. Nob Hill boasts an upscale vibe, Fisherman’s Wharf serves the freshest clam chowder, and Haight-Ashbury clings on to its 1960s hippie culture. One day in San Francisco could mean marveling at the city’s colorful Victorian homes called “painted ladies,” braving the eerie prison on Alcatraz Island, or even visiting the Coit Tower.
However you decide to spend your 24 hours in San Francisco, the city is sure to dazzle. From figuring out why they call it Fog City to riding the famous cable cars, you’ll be glad you didn’t spend your layover in the terminal.
