My best friend told me once that I was an obsessive wayfarer.
I didn’t disagree with her at the moment since I was kind of arguing with our group of friends about nobody being in the mood for going out to do something… for the fourth night in a row.
Ever since I’ve been a kid I’ve always thought that “fun,” can mostly be found when you leave the four-walls-and-a-roof combination, you use for sleeping, shelter, and getting cleaned.
I do love going out. It is kinda my thing. I even made a list of things to do in San Francisco
Now, that may or may not be the reason why I tend to be broke.
I’ve often argued with my group that it is actually due to a secret government conspiracy. But I have to admit they do make some compelling arguments about my spending habits especially when I go shopping in San Francisco.
However, instead of moping in my room (confinement) whenever I run of cash, I decided to turn it around and start looking for free things to do in San Francisco instead. Awesome places where you can go and have fun even when your wallet is screaming for mercy, and that you can share with your ungrateful group of friends who don’t deserve you.
Since I know I can’t be the only one broke explorer in beautiful Fog City, I thought I should share some of those spots with you guys, a shout out to my San Francisco SEO clients for helping me find these places. Without further ado, here’s a few ways to spend your time (and not your money) with these free things to do in San Francisco.

After hiring a few SEO firms over the years, with little to no results, I decided to give one more crack at it. I learned about Over The Top SEO while researching the best link building companies on google, and found myself stumbling across their website. I was introduced to the founder, Guy Sheetrit, by one of his employees, and could immediately tell my experience would be different. Guy seems to have a knowledge of SEO that far surpasses that of 99% of the SEO firms I’ve dealt with in the past, and the results speak for itself. I plan on using his services in the months to come.
Over The SEO Ninjas has done outstanding things for our business growth and our online presence. Prior to working with Over The Top, we attempted to run our own PPC campaigns with very low results (wasting a lot of money). After bringing in Over The Top, who understands our needs and is very attentive, the phone is ringing off the hook. Thank you for helping us triple our profits! We give them the highest regard for their skill set and highly recommend them for any company’s website building and online presence.
Over The Top SEO chose a great name, because their results really are over the top. I worked out an estimated ROI I’d get from working with them, and the results have FAR exceeded what I thought I’d be getting. First page results all over the place, ranking for wayyyyy more phrases than I was even expecting, and the traffic has turned into a game changing amount of new business for me and my company. Thank you guys sincerely!
I was the one to locate Over the top SEO for my University and I am happy I did it. These guys are no joke, they know what they are doing from A to Z. no games, no time wasting. purely professional.
We started working with Over The Top SEO after looking for serious SEO experts, we found them in the top positions for most of the competitive words we looked up and after much consideration we decided to go with them, We can’t disclose too much but I can say that it is a beautiful relationship and we are most grateful for the technical knowledge these guys have. Overall just 10/10.
We are a fairly big company in the auto parts industry and Over The Top SEO helped us grow A LOT in the past 2 years. we would gladly recommend them anytime, anywhere.
This company is probably the best we have encountered as of yet, we have been suffering from poor “SEO” experts by 5 companies that are known out there and yet all fail to deliver and over promise the sky. With over the top we literally had 100% interaction in our campaign, we were an active part of the process and still are always in the loop. We finally saw results after several short months with a continuing growth in sales. We are so happy to have met Guy and his team of professionals, and we are not going anywhere.
We were very surprised by the way Guy, Greg, Paul and the team at Over the top SEO works, its the first time someone opens our eyes to what is happening with our campaigns and involves us deeply into the process, which now I understand the importance of why they do it they way they do, we are with OTT for more than 9 months now and we are very happy with them, they are the only company that provided us with raw results constantly.
It sounds that I am very buyest, but hee, what these guys do works. On a daily basis you see your positions improve, traffic get better and your store grow. We are happy bumping into Over The Top SEO, even though we are a dutch company they managed to get Gereedschappelijk the ranking we were looking for. And still improving…!
Really Enjoyed my experience and will continue working with Over The Top SEO in the future. Much love.
Okay, let’s start with one I personally love, San Francisco’s Botanical Garden. Want to be instantly transported to a magic land where you forget you are in one of the biggest cities in the world? Want to spend an afternoon marveling at beautiful flowers with colors you didn’t even know were naturally possible? Want to do all of that without spending money? This is the place for you.
You can find the botanical garden right in the heart of the Golden Gate Park. Beautiful ponds, flower beds, animals, and peaceful relaxation. It’s like stepping into another world.
If you are a resident of SF, entrance is free. Just show your San Francisco license or an utility bill, and you’ll be let in, free of charge.
We have inspired and motivated business owners, entrepreneurs, and professionals around the world for the past few years, and we’ve designed apps that both boost brand awareness and drives productivity off the charts. However, we realized that we couldn’t help everyone. and the truth is not everyone is our match made in heaven. Therefore, we only accept new clients after an extensive screening process that helps us determine whether we will be a good fit for each other.
The fact that this place is called like one of my favorite series of all times gives me childish joy. Whether you are visiting the city or lived there your whole life, if you haven’t seen it from the Twin Peaks, you haven’t met her at all.
Day or night, you can bet your bottom dollar that the panoramic picture will get branded in your head and leave you speechless. Just toss some Peanut butter, jelly, and a few slices of bread and call it a picknick. You can easily spend a whole day in quiet contemplation or have fun with your friends without breaking the bank. I sometimes go work here when I need to come up with creative ideas for my San Francisco web design customers.
It does get a little windy and chilly up there, so dress accordingly.
Here’s another cool place to spend a good time without having to pay money. The Cable Car Museum is often overlooked (especially for us who live in the city) But I think is a really cool place to take someone who’s never been.
Each time I’ve had a friend or family member visiting, I make a particular point in going there. The interesting exhibitions about SF’s particular mode of transportation never fails to capture their interest.
It doesn’t take too long to do the whole tour, but I think that’s a plus, particularly for they were you already have some other activity planned (like a lunch or dinner), taking a stroll down the museum will give your group plenty to talk about afterward.
Well, I think those are a few good ones to get you started.
Don’t let your cash shortage be the reason to stray indoors when there’s so much awesome free things to do in San Francisco! Nag your group of friends (like I did) until they relent and have some fun going to any of these places. You won’t regret it.
Who knows? OTT might be the best thing that ever happened to you.
