Five Things To Do In San Francisco

San Francisco RSA

San Francisco has something for everyone: a bustling city with shopping, fine dining and nightlife for the city slicker, kilometers of open parks and beaches for the nature lover and no shortage of culture, art and history up and down each hilly street. As our team here at HOBsoft packs its bags in preparation for the 2015 RSA Conference located at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, we’re also compiling a list of “must-see” San Francisco sites. Here’s what we came up with:

1.)   The Golden Gate Bridge

It’s iconic, 2,737 meters long and despite its name, orange. It’s the gateway from the bay to the Pacific Ocean and connects the city of San Francisco to the southern tip of Marin County. It was constructed in 1937 and a little known fact about the bridge is that small portions of it are painted daily. Visitors can view the bridge from multiple vista points, stroll across its entire length or even rent bikes and bike across for stunning views of the city and access to Marin County and the charming town of Sausalito.

2.)   Golden Gate Park

Just south of the Golden Gate Bridge you will find a 1,017 acre expanse of flora and fauna. A labyrinth of gardens, parks, museums, statues, cultural venues and activities, the Golden Gate Park is truly San Francisco’s backyard. Every corner of the park presents an unexpected adventure, from giant Dutch windmills, to wild buffalo to a Japanese Tea Garden and a roller-dance rink.

3.)   The Haight Neighborhood

It was the hippy hub of the 1960s and has still maintained much of its groovy essence with funky shops, colorful characters and vibrant murals. The intersection of Haight Street and Ashbury Street is a famous landmark, former home to the hippy movement that took place across the world in the 1960s. The neighborhood is perfect for grabbing a coffee in a hip coffee shop, but be wary of panhandlers, as they are local to this area.

4.)   Union Square

Located in the heart of the city, Union Square is the shopping district of San Francisco, studded with designer clothing stores and ample dining and bordered by an iconic cable car line on Powell St. Close by you will find the historical Chinatown Dragon’s Gate for more cultural exploration!

5.)   See HOBsoft at RSA

After a day of city exploration, stop by the Moscone Center, south of Union Square, for latest in secure remote access solutions at RSA Conference 2015. Here, “IT Made in Germany” will join the security discussion alongside other industry leaders in four days of product demonstrations, presentations and discussions. Come stop by our booth, #N3435! We look forward to seeing you!
