Fun Things to Do in San Francisco for Young Adults

Fun Things to Do in San Francisco for Young Adults
Teenagers and 20-somethings looking for a little adventure should head to San Francisco, where there's a ton of stuff to see and do. In fact, it's a lot to take in for the first-time visitor. But as long as you make sure to stop to smell the redwoods, you'll enjoy an exciting and unique time in the great outdoors.

Oh, the Places You'll Go

As far as cities go, San Francisco is one of America's sweethearts. So, don't let it pass you by. From the rolling hills lined with Victorian-era homes to the rugged coast lined with seals and shorebirds, there's plenty to see here. Whether by foot, boat or bicycle, you can easily spend a whole day in San Fran without spending a penny. Tour the town with your best buds and a great Facebook photo album (or two) will surely come out of it!

Park Yourself at Golden Gate Park

The Golden Gate National Recreation Area is one of the world's largest urban parks, featuring 76,000-plus acres of redwood trees, shoreline, marshes, hills and wonderful wildlife. Hike up Mori Point, explore Alcatraz Island, sunbathe on Ocean Beach or try for a hole-in-one at the Sharp Park Golf Course.

Sightsee by Sea Kayak

Sea kayaking is a beloved sport in San Francisco, and for good reason. Kayakers get to paddle alongside sea lions, harbor seals and big waves. This is an especially great idea for young, sporty couples.

Fishing on the Dock of the Bay

You can catch lunch on the dock, or perfect your angling skills on a charter boat. Salmon, tuna and even sharks are frequenters of the San Francisco Bay area. Favorite spots for fishermen and women include the Sacramento Delta and San Pablo Bay.

Tour the Bay on a Segway

If walking is a snore, cruise past the waterfront and through charismatic neighborhoods of San Francisco on a Segway. Because the city's so pedestrian and biker-friendly, it's great for 3-hour Segway sojourn--particularly if you've got friends to join you.
