Why locals recommend it
What to say? One of the great parks of the United States. Just head down the hill to Kezar Stadium (at the very bottom of Willard Street) and you'll see the GGP right beyond it (walk around Kezar to the west to enter the park). You can also enter on Stanyan and Haight (and at many other points). Enjoy the Academy of Sciences, de Young Museum, Japanese Tea Garden, Stow Lake, the Conservatory of Flowers (great night time light shows in the summer and winter) and many, many other features of the park.
Tips from locals
Lots to explore in the park. Go visit an art museum, or the academy of sciences. Fancy tea? Head to the Japanese gardens for a cup.
Swings, playground, huge grassy hill to roll down, and sand. The kid's love it.
Just a lovely ride to the beach, not to mention the DeYoung Museum, The Asian Art Museum, Conservatory of Flowers, Japanese Tea Garden, California Academy of Sciences, Lands End for a Hike, and the ruins of Sutro Baths. Eat at The Chalet, home to some of the city’s murals from the WPA and some…
Go see the Buffalo here :). Also, we have Stow Lake to rise paddle boats! There’s the Academy of Science (Aquarium, Planetarium, swamp/rainforest all in one)
Enjoy the top attractions of the park has to offer: Japanese Tea Garden, Conservatory of Flowers, The de Young Museum, Botanical Garden, California Academy of Sciences, and do fun activities like biking, skating, archery, soccer, and many more.
Walk one block west on Hayes Street. Visit Conservatory of flowers pictured, nearby. Bicycle rentals nearby.
A lot of great places to see like the Academy of Sciences, De Young Art Museum, Botanical Garden, Stow Lake and Japanese Tea Garden.
Be sure to check out the new SkyStar Wheel a 2 minute walk from Cal Academy of Sciences. Address: Bowl Drive and Music Concourse Dr.
San Francisco - Also a must see but too big to see it all. Do some research ahead of time and find out what you want to see.
The rumors are true. Golden Gate Park is as fantastic as they say. Explore this iconic park’s 1,017 acres, from bucolic lakes and meadows to vibrant activity destinations. Golden Gate Park has something for everyone.
Once nothing but a giant sand dune, this huge park is often compared to Central Park in New York. Rent bikes. Around every turn is something magical to discover. Ride out to the Beach Chalet for lunch or dinner.

“People don't usually think of going to the beach while visiting San Francisco, but incredible on a sunny, warm day. Some of the coolest new cafes, restaurants and bars are a few blocks walk/ride from the beach. Check the temp and the winds before coming out.”
