Talk Like a Local

SF is best known for The Golden Gate Bridge but when locals refer to “The Bridge,” they often times are referring to The Bay Bridge.
Sorry I’m late, there was so much traffic on the bridge.
Neighborhoods to Explore
When in San Francisco, do as San Franciscans do. Mingle with the locals, sip on Fernet and chill out at Dolores Park.
1. The Embarcadero
The city is famous for its picturesque bay-front views. Take a stroll down The Embarcadero, San Francisco’s waterfront district, and dive into some of the best seafood restaurants with outdoor dining options.
2. The Sunset
It’s not called The Sunset for nothing! Head far west to Ocean Beach at sundown for breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean. Hipster coffee shops, authentic Asian cuisine, and peaceful parks are also among The Sunset’s many hidden gems.
3. The Mission
Where the street-art makes a statement and the grab & go taquerias are plentiful. The Mission District is full of local flavor and attitude. Needless to say, it’s a top-pick among locals for a night-out on the town.

Spanning over one thousand acres, the city’s largest park is home to some of its biggest outdoor attractions. The SF Botanical Gardens, DeYoung Museum, and Academy of Sciences are just a few we recommend checking out.
