Top 10 travel spots in San Francisco

Viewed: 1453
Cate Blanchett has been making waves at the awards this year with her performance in ‘Blue Jasmine’, but we think one of the film’s other biggest stars is its city setting of San Francisco. 

With stunning scenery and vibrant streets, it proves the perfect backdrop for the Oscar-nominated, darkly-humoured drama. So we asked some locals for the unmissable spots in San Fran.The Blue Jasmine cast in San Francisco's Chinatown

1. Chinatown

An obvious staple of San Francisco, Chinatown is unmissable. Featuring some of the best food in the city, the area also has tons of dollar stores and is the perfect place to buy fresh, authentic Chinese groceries.

2. Filbert Steps

Venture into sudden paradise through these steps off Filbert Street. Climbing up the east slope of Telegraph Hill, the steps lead you through a tended garden and up to gorgeous views of the city by Coit Tower.

3. Tiburon’s ‘Hippy Tree’

Just 20 minutes outside San Francisco, in the little town of Tiburon lies a small secret getaway by the name of Hippy Tree. The spot features beautiful views of the Bay and the bridge and is quietly tucked away, perfect for an afternoon escape.Japanese Tea Garden In Golden Gate Park (REX)

4. Japanese Tea Gardens

With its pagodas, koi ponds, stepping stone paths and cherry blossom, this tranquil oasis in the heart of the Golden Gate Park has good reason to call itself one of the city’s most popular attractions. Originally created in 1894 as a Japanese Village exhibit, it’s the perfect place to relax away from the hustle and bustle.

5. Foreign Cinema

Foreign Cinema provides a dining experience like no other. Featuring one of the tastiest menus in the city, this California/Mediterranean-inspired restaurant screens some of the most delectable foreign and independent films for you to enjoy with your meal. (We bet this would be favourite of Woody Allen’s!)Houses along the water in the little town of Sausalito near San Fran (REX)

6. Sausalito 

Just north of the city, Sausalito is a gorgeous town tucked on the side of Redwood Highway that spills out onto the Bay with great food and beautiful views.

7. Outer Sunset & Ocean Beach 

Head to the newly-bustling Outer Sunset district to discover glorious beachside spots among the avenues. Drop into Judah Street’s Outerlands for Sunday brunch, followed by a breezy walk down Ocean Beach.

8. Crissy Field

To get the full beach experience, head to Crissy field. You’ll get beautiful views of the Golden Gate Bridge as well as the bay, enjoy the Warming Hut café and bookstore, and maybe even catch some windsurfers.

9. Muir Woods

Enter a world of redwoods at Muir Woods. This stunning National Monument houses over 240 acres of Coast Redwood trees and is a visual experience like no other.Delicious Mexican food on the US side of the border

10. Mexican in the Mission District 

If you only do one thing in San Francisco, make sure it’s enjoying the scrumptious authentic Mexican food in the Mission District. We recommend Taqueria El Farolito has some of the best burritos in the city.
