South San Francisco Area Guide

As one of the most vibrant, eclectic, and exhilarating destinations in the country, there’s an endless variety of things to do in South San Francisco. From the hilly, authentic streets of Chinatown to its expansive beaches and sweeping bridges—all of which you can discover on foot, bike, or double-decker bus tour—San Francisco really is a city meant for exploration.

During your stay at Larkspur South San Francisco, hop in the car or take the BART into the city to tour sights like Fisherman’s Wharf, Union Square, and Alcatraz Island. If you’re only with us during a 24-hour layover, or looking for things to do near SFO Airport at night, check out the nearby Oyster Point Marina & Park, The Shops at Tanforan, or In N’ Out Burger, a fast food chain with an almost cult-like following.

And when you need a little exercise after indulging in all the other fantastic food San Francisco has to offer—and truly, this is one of the great foodie cities of the world—go for a jog or rent a bike and ride across the Golden Gate Bridge to take in the spectacular views of San Francisco Bay.
