Is San Francisco expensive??? San Francisco hotels can be pretty pricey, like the rumours it is expensive even for me after living in London – but if you are searching for unique experiences in California, SF is the place to be. There are plenty of affordable places to stay in San Francisco if you can book in advance.

The Mission District murals are definitely worth seeing and were one of the best things to see in San Francisco in my opinion. The area is very flat and easy to navigate. The neighbourhood has some of the most authentic restaurants in San Francisco, that are also not too expensive. If you are searching for the best places for Instagram shots in San Francisco you can get an amazing view of the entire city from Dolores Park, which is close by as well.

Fisherman’s Wharf restaurants are pretty expensive and it is super touristy – but I still think it’s worth checking out because it has some of the best seafood in San Francisco. There is quite a lot to see if you just walk around the pier as well.

Lombard Street is another great place for Instagram shots in California and it is within walking distance from Fisherman’s Wharf. SF is super hilly so be prepared for a bit of a hike most places you walk and you will probably get your 10k steps in each day.

(I’d recommend staying 2-4 nights)
