San Francisco: Things to Do

If it's things to do you are considering, San Francisco has a lot. A lot of bloggers and writers have written about the attractions and tourist destinations in the community so this post will not address all those activities. I think it is more helpful to provide readers with resources to discover attractions and things to do on their own. The information readily available for travelers is endless. Most of it can be found on the web. This article will deal with some of those resources.

With out a doubt, the first place to look is A creation of Certified Folder Display (the organization that services all those tourism brochure racks you see within hotel lobbies), Visitor Tips is a remarkable resource for vacationers. Not many organizations know travel more than Certified. Visitor Tips is Certified's digital brochure rack and travelers can discover many things to do in San Francisco by checking it out. Users will find lots of different attractions, accommodations, transportation, dining and shopping ideas. Visitor Tips is our first choice for travelers trying to find things to do in San Francisco.
Online directories have gotten increasingly popular among consumers. Many of us have heard of Yelp, CItysearch and Trip Advisor. These platforms are much like the yellow pages in digital format. As opposed to the phone book, most of these directories list all kinds of handy information for travelers to San Francisco. They include detailed company descriptions, contact details, prices and pictures. The most useful tool in these directories, however, is the option to leave a testimonial. Upon visiting an attraction, hotel or restaurant, people are given the chance to rate and write a review of their experience.
City websites can be a huge advantage for all those interested in museums, art or other public venues such as libraries and government buildings. In order to ensure a government point of interest is open before you decide to plan your vacation - and we recommend you do - then government sites are the place to go. Those of you who remember Chevy Chase in the film Vacation can understand the frustration of going a long distance only to discover your chosen attraction is closed for maintenance. "The park's closed. The mouse out front should've told ya."
It's not earth shattering information that the search engines provide a lot of information for vacation goers. But rather than enter your search like you ordinarily would, try an enhanced search by picking one of the selections in the side bar such as Places, Forums, Discussions or Blogs. The type of categories depends on the search engine you use. Here you’ll find others asking some of the same questions in which you are interested. The contributors in these forums can be very knowledgeable and like to help out as much as they can. They enjoy sharing their knowledge. The assistance they offer is free so take advantage of it.
Certainly, there is much more information accessible to vacationers than any other time. Regardless if the city you are visiting is San Francisco or Palucaville. It just takes a little research. Begin with Visitor Tips, then the directories, try the municipal websites if appropriate and end with the forums. With so much information available, there Is no reason not to have the vacation of your life.
