Walk the nearby beach at sunset. Explore the green roof and aquarium at the California Academy of Sciences in nearby Golden Gate Park. Sample some cracked crab at Fisherman’s Wharf. Walk down Lombard Street, the crookedest street in the world. Hop a cable car up to Nob Hill. Further afield, Silicon Valley and Stanford University are only 30 minutes south. The academic ferment of UC Berkeley and the biotech scene are only 40 minutes east.
A great location without costing a fortune
