In a city know to be both cultured and wild, there is truly something for everyone. Whether you're looking for a taste of the highbrow, or to indulge your animal instincts, the San Francisco City Center Hostel is offering special packages that showcase both sides of this wildly cultural (culturally wild?) town.
In honor of the California Museum's new exhibit, Riding Concrete: Skateboarding in California, we're offering a Skater Special! Show your board at check-in and save $5 per night at the Sacramento Hostel.
Hoping to continue our "Urban Hiking" series, which has so far taken readers across the Golden Gate Bridge and through Golden Gate Park, I set out to find an urban trek from our San Francisco Downtown Hostel. There aren't many parks nearby big enough to warrant a trip, and the most popular walking paths downtown are between the many stores in the Union Square shopping district.
As someone who doesn't live in San Francisco, this city can feel pretty huge. Seven miles from one end to the other? Thanks, I'll take a bus. But seven miles up in Point Reyes National Seashore? That's a great hike!
Pick up any San Francisco guidebook, and you'll find a whole host of things to do, see, eat, drink, and take pictures of. But just because you've gone through your entire guidebook doesn't mean you've seen all of this city!
