A handful of free things to do in San Francisco

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.

San Francisco Botanical Garden

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.

Twin Peaks

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.

The Cable Car Museum

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.
