Things to do in San Francisco - Yerba Buena Gardens #UrbanTrekUSATips

This #UrbanTrekUSATips for things to do in San Francisco by Urban Trek USA a SMALL GROUP San Francisco walking tour providing a real IMMERSIVE San Francisco city tour EXPERIENCE. Why just simply visit and see the ordinary stuff when you can join an urban trek San Francisco walking tour and EXPERIENCE the wonderful.

Yerba Buena Gardens located along Mission Street between 4th and 3rd Streets is a nice green open space in the middle of the urban jungle (downtown). There are also an indoor ice skating rink, bowling alleys, the Metreon, a food court, Target, an arts center and the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial. The SF MOMA is also just across the street (on 3rd Street). What I like most is the green open space. I like going up above the waterfalls of the MLK Jr. Memorial where there is a sitting area with a panoramic view of the green space below and the tall buildings around the area.

From April to October, there are FREE events (i.e. musical, cultural, circus, etc.) during lunch time and after work hours for your entertainment. Click here to the calendar of events.

My last post on about things to do in Golden Gate Park on Jan. 22, 2019 was for the Conservatory of Flowers. Right next to the Conservatory of Flowers is the Dahlia Garden (Dahlia Dell). The Dahlia is the flower of San Francisco. The Dahlias a beautiful flowers and have different varieties. According to the Golden Gate Park website, these flowers are in full bloom from from June to September. However, I took the photos and videos below between March and October so the Dahlias can be just a gorgeous during those months.

BENEFITS of joining a DISCOUNTED PRIVATE San Francisco SMALL GROUP tour

Urban Trek USA is a SMALL GROUP San Francisco tour that will provide visitors with a truly IMMERSIVE San Francisco city & walking tour EXPERIENCE.

What are the benefits of joining a discounted private urban trek and how does Urban Trek USA provide an immersive San Francisco experience?

1. When visitors simply wander around a neighborhood on their own or in a vehicle (e.g. tour bus tour), they are essentially just "sightseeing" - just seeing the sights. When visitors join an urban trek, they will get historical information as well as current demographics (i.e. how the neighborhood started and how it has evolved) and things to do in those neighborhoods today. This way, visitors will get a better understanding of a neighborhood and its uniqueness to other neighborhoods and have a good sense of what they can do there should they want to revisit the place on their own after the urban trek.

2. Walking the streets and alleys of the seven neighborhood is the only way to provide visitors with a truly enhanced and in-depth experience of each area and San Francisco vs. being in a tour bus, van, Segway, bicycle, etc. Joining other tours that only includes one to three neighborhoods will not give visitors the same immersive San Francisco experience.

3. The Urban Trek Leader has lived in San Francisco for decades and will show you the "secret spots" with awesome views without the crowd; as well as provide a real insider's perspective.

4. Visitors will be provided with written directions on how to explore other neighborhoods and their "secret spots" so visitors can enjoy the rest of their stay after their urban trek. This is something no other tours will provide visitors. Urban Trek USA provides this at no additional cost.

5. Taking San Francisco's public transportation is not only an eco-friendly way to get around The City, but it also adds to the enhanced experience of a neighborhood. One of the goals of the Urban Trek Leader is to make visitors comfortable in taking public transportation so they will feel at ease exploring more of The City. Furthermore, more area can be explored vs. just walking.

6. The price for this discounted private urban trek is quite a bargain when compared to other private tours; and when visitors take into consideration the quality (5 stars), the length of time (7 to 7.5 hours) and the overall experience (7 neighborhoods).

Getting all these will provide visitors with the best immersive San Francisco experience.

Why just simply visit when your can experience it with Urban Trek USA.

This #UrbanTrekUSATips by Urban Trek USA San Francisco SMALL GROUP walking tour & city tours. Joining an urban trek San Francisco walking & city tour is an IMMERSIVE San Francisco EXPERIENCE. Why just simply visit when you can experience it - San Francisco!

Continuing #UrbanTrekUSATips on good things to do in San Francisco Golden Gate Park, this post recommends the Conservatory of Flowers. In my prior post on the Botanical Garden (here), I mentioned the Botanical Garden is huge. The Conservatory of Flowers is a smaller area to enjoy seeing beautiful and exotic flowers. Therefore, if you have less time and are a fan of beautiful flowers, the Conservatory of Flowers is the place to visit.
