Famous for its fog, cable cars, bridges and jails (Alcatraz and San Quentin), San Fransciso is also a city renowned for its restaurants, buzzing nightlife and eclectic neighbourhoods. Only 49 square miles wide, you’ll be able to pack a lot into your San Francisco visit. And to help you get the most for your money while in town, Mozo’s money savvy travellers share where in SanFran they left their heart.
The best way to see a city and get around is to hire a bike for the day! It costs about $20 for the whole day and will save you lots of money on public transport (which can be up to $80). I had the best experience hiring a bike in San Fran and riding around to see the sights!

The bike ride to Sausalito from Fisherman’s Wharf is a great way to see the SF Bay - it takes you across the Golden Gate bridge, over to Sausalito where you can spend the morning/ afternoon looking around the art shops. Don’t forget to try some Salt Water Taffy Candy at Munchin Candy’s.
If you’re feeling lazy on the way back, you can catch the SF Ferry to the Ferry Terminal. But that will take you over the $20 budget (1 way about $11). Bike hire is around $8 an hour and there are plenty of places that offer discounts and day rates, so shop around!

Head to the farmers market at the ferry terminal building on a Saturday morning to sample some of the best organic and locally grown Northern Californian produce around. Start with some Blue Bottle coffee and a scone from Acme bakery, work your way through the organic fruit and veg stalls outside, try some of the great cheese from Cowgirl Creamery, finish off with some Hog Island Oysters and a thirst quenching cerveza – the perfect day in SanFran!
