Have you ever been to the City by the Bay at night? We all know that San Francisco is know for its beautiful skyline and scenery. But when the sun sets under the horizon and the the city lights glare into the bay, San Francisco is absolutely stunning. Who says you need Paris when you can simply head over to San Francisco at night.
1. Bay Bridge Lights
When the sun is out and the fog invades the city’s sky the Bay Bridge may appear like nothing else but ordinary. It’s just a 1.8-mile long bridge, nothing special you might think. But at night this seemingly basic bridge lights up with thousand of moving LED lights. All of a sudden this bridge gets turnt, and believe when I tell you that you’ll be wanting to stare at it all night long. Or at least want to take a selfie of you and your bae with the lights in the background.
2. AT&T Park at night
Buy tickets to a San Francisco Giants baseball game at night, preferably seats on the upper west/right deck. At night the park is beautiful at night in itself, but if you get the right seat you can enjoy the view of both the baseball players, stadium, bay, and Bay bridge lights.
3. Vantigo’s City Lights Tour
This tour is about two hours and a half and takes your through the city in a vintage Volkswagon van. All you have to do is sit back have a drink or two, listen to the tour guide, and look out the window. Once on tour, you’ll get a chance to see Union Square, Chinatown, Finacial District, SOMA, The Embarcadero, North Beach, Coit Tower, and Fisherman’s wharf.
4. Alcatraz at night
You might assume that Alcatraz is not an ideal place to visit at night, however, once you’re there you’ll gain valuable knowledge and insight about the historic prison. These tours operate year-round, on Thursday to Monday evenings. Transportation includes a roundtrip on a ferry. The tours can include additional programs and activities. Before going on the tour it’s important to consider the weather conditions. Be sure to dress in layers and wear closed-toe shoes or sneakers. As you arrive you’ll see more views of the city at night, and experience Alcatraz through a new perspective.
5. Film Night in The Park
On Saturday, September 24, 2016, Dolores Park will host a FREE movie night. Everyone is welcomed and free to bring their own food and drink. They don’t allow lawn chairs, but bring your warmest blankets, hoodies, and friends to enjoy a free screening of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”. It’s a great way to spend a Saturday night in San Francisco. You can’t beat an outdoor view of San Francisco at night, and a group of intergalactic heroes deafening the first order.
