  • Just so there is no sense here, but if you've been walking in the area so far, the people you might want to walk out. Well you can see the Golden Gate and Alcatraz.

  • If you're into major sights, skip it. San Francisco has plenty of big things to see and do. You won't find this worth the effort if you're looking for something off a top ten list. But I loved it. It'...  more »
  • I was real excited to check these out as I had never heard of them before. Used MapQuest and went the wrong way for a bit before realizing it was the wrong way. It was nice walking along the coastline...  more »

  • If your a local you've got to check this out. If your on vacation it's not really worth your time as it's in disrepair. It does sound cool though.
  • You can miss it if you don't know it's there! Nice view on both Golden Bridge and Alcatraz. Great place on a windy day!
  • Super cool to see. Great for kids to play near. I enjoyed and was happy that my cousin brought me here to experience San Fran water and art. I would recommend a stop here.
  • Very unique and artistic. Looks almost like an ancient ruins. Love the pipe concept to hear the water movement.
  • Hugely helpful tip, GPS your way to the Golden Gate Yacht Club. There is parking down there by the small brick lighthouse. Then you walk out on the jetty to find the Wave Organ. Really get down and put your ear near the pipes. Each one sounds a little bit different. The views of Alcatraz, Angel Island, Golden Gate Bridge, and of downtown San Francisco are incredible out there. It can get windy, but its a wonderful walk.

Where to stay in San Francisco

From inexpensive hostels in quiet residential areas to high-end hotels near the city center, San Francisco has accommodations for every budget. Key consideration is what kind of neighborhood you want to stay in. You'll find luxury hotels in Union Square, which has prime shopping, is near theaters, and is on the cable car line. Many hotels are in the northeastern portion of the city, near the tourist-driven neighborhoods of Chinatown and Fisherman's Wharf, both easily explored on foot. To get away from the tourist crowds, consider the smaller inns and family-run bed and breakfasts in some of the city's more charming neighborhoods, such as Noe Valley or Pacific Heights. There are also boutique hotels scattered around town. Avoid staying in the Tenderloin. If you plan to have a car with you, ask about parking availability and fees. Parking is often difficult and expensive.
