Hi guys! I’m happy to see you back on my blog.
Today, whether you are a native of the golden gate city, or just a neighbor looking forward to a trip to the town, we are putting our touristy hats on.
As some of you known, my best friend from childhood (who was also my 1st San Francisco SEO customer), Mia, has been spending a couple of weeks here visiting the city for her first time, and I had planned a whole list of exciting places and restaurants in San Francisco Downtown to visit while she’s was here.
As her trip nears to an end (I promised myself I wouldn’t cry), she has helped me put together that list into a post to share it with all of you beautiful people.
Now some of these places I had visited before and knew to be great, but some were a surprise and first experience for the both of us. In any case, what follows is a condensed list of the top picks she and I agreed on and turned out to be our top choices for fun things to do in San Francisco with kids or without whichever way you may like.

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.
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 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.
Ok, ok. Before you start looking at me suspiciously, let me clarify that I had visited Golden Gate Park before, it is actually one of my favorite spots in the city, and I usually go there at least a couple of times a week to exercise. However, since Mia is just as big (perhaps bigger) a nature freak that I am, I knew the park would be our first stop. Spoilers alert: it didn’t disappoint.
There’s just something magical about being able to surround yourself with so much natural beauty, even amidst such a huge cosmopolitan city as SF. It is a peaceful, fresh, and beautiful retreat from the frantic city life. We went there in the early morning with our bikes and found a place to have breakfast by the creek. The Ocean breeze and the sounds of nature were the perfect backgrounds for an invigorating morning.
If you are coming from out of town, know that the Golden Gate Park (Or GG park as Mia renamed it) is huge, and it will probably take a few visits to be able to explore it all.
Special Mention: The Japanese Tea garden, natural beauty at its best.
Mia’s input: “LOVED GG park. We’ve gone there several times, and I still want to go back.
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.
This is a museum that I’m actually salty not more people know about! If you are looking for fun things to do in San Francisco, look no further than the Exploratorium. As far as learning/entertainment goes, it doesn’t get any better than this, a place that has been carefully crafted to enthrall kids and adults by experiencing physics and sciences in innovative and interesting ways.
It is an interactive museum, so if you have kids, you can bet they’ll be as engaged or even more so than you’ll be. While there isn’t a whole-day number of activities to do, the place is perfect for an exciting one-stop visit on a day already packed with other events. In fact, I regularly go here when I need a creative spark for my works for San Francisco web design clients.
There’s no specific parking lot to the structure so keep that in mind. Also, there are lockers inside you can rent for 50 cents in case you have loads to take off. The entrance fee might seem a bit pricey ($30 for adults, and $20 for children) especially if you are traveling with a large crew. But in my opinion, it is more than worth it, and then some.
Special Mention: Little café by the corner of the north entrance, delicious food with lots of healthy options for children.
Mia’s input: “Didn’t know science could be so fun!”
This is one that I hadn’t gone in all my years since I moved here, mainly because it gives me the heebie-jeebies, but after about a week of non-stop nagging by Mia, I relented. I should mention that she’s a horror buff, so visiting Alcatraz Island was like, in her top three stops.
I find it kind of weird to say I enjoyed it, but I did. It was an exciting, exploratory outing. The island is beautiful. We took the guided tour up to the prison, and I have to say they do a great job keeping you entertained and learning the background of the place.
I love exploring historic landmarks, and I have to say that even though I thought it wouldn’t be my cup of tea, I’m delighted that Mia made me go.
Special Mention: There’s a lot of natural life around the island, it is a nice counterbalance to walk around there once you finish the prison tour.
Mia’s input: “Alcatraz Island was everything I was expecting it to be, definitively a must-visit for out of towners that love horror movies.”
I could list a few more spots we’ve visited over Mia’s trip, but this one’s run long enough, so I think I would save those for a future entry. Either way, you already have a few fun things to do in San Francisco to take up your time until my next entry. Have fun exploring the city ?
