25 Unique Things to Do in San Francisco (2023)

We’re bicycling across San Francisco’s famous Golden Gate Bridge. The sharp wind blows strong at this height, and the cold fog claws its way across the dry hilltops opposite like a living beast. Far below, seemingly tiny sailboats skim across the choppy water.

When it comes to cool, quirky, and unique things to do in San Francisco, this activity tops our list.
