San Francisco Attractions
Looking for Things To Do in San Francisco Bay Area?
As much as we want you to stay at The Willows Inn when you come to San Francisco, the last thing we would suggest is that you spend your days in the inn. That’s because there are so many San Francisco attractions in and around the city, any day of the year (more than you could possibly fit into just one visit). Below is a small sampling of how you might want to spend your time while in San Francisco.
Thursday Night at the Museum
Music, creatures and cocktails 6-10 pm every Thursday night at The California Academy of Sciences.
San Francisco Opera

San Francisco Symphony
The season is in full swing. Upcoming concerts include Beethoven, Mozart & Bernstein and more.
San Francisco Jazz Center
The first US center devoted exclusively to jazz. Reviews on the music (and the venue) are melodious to say the least.

For the Jock in You!
We have a number of bike sharing options, and plenty of hills to guarantee you a great work out. When you’ve done that, you can towel off and head to the (seasonally-appropriate) park/stadium/arena and watch someone else excel in sports. And, you can even participate with some of these groups.
