We come to a halt, leaning against the rust-orange railings of the bridge, and feel the vibrations of hundreds of cars thundering by. We’re riding our bikes across San Francisco’s iconic Golden Gate Bridge. At this altitude, the wind is strong, and the icy fog claws its way across the parched hilltops opposite like a living beast. Far below, little sailboats skim across the turbulent lake. This activity is at the top of our list of cool, quirky, and unique things to do in San Francisco.

1. Golden Gate Bridge
Is there any more construction in San Francisco than the Golden Gate Bridge when it comes to unique and fascinating places? The name “Golden Gate” also refers to the one-mile-wide strait that connects San Francisco Bay to the Pacific Ocean. The Golden Gate Bridge, which spans the Golden Gate Strait, debuted in 1937 as the world’s highest and longest suspension bridge. (At the time). More than 80 years later, the bridge has become a city landmark, positioned on the list of must-see attractions in San Francisco. And there are many perspectives! But if you take in the views of the Golden Gate Bridge, you will be by this incredible engineering marvel.
2. Golden Gate Bridge to Sausalito
Sausalito, located north of San Francisco, is a relaxed hamlet snuggled in Richardson Bay. Of course, there are premium boutiques and high-end apartments here. But, there are some breathtaking views to be had. As before said, getting to Sausalito is as simple as hopping on a bicycle and pedaling across the Golden Gate Bridge.
3. Climb hidden stairways
Prepare to climb stairwells if you’re looking for unusual things to do in San Francisco. There are several steps, stairs, and staircases that wound their way up and down this hilly metropolis. (Close to 200 public staircases, in fact). Many are with colourful mosaic tiles. They’re only a few streets from the famed 16th Avenue Tiled Steps, but if you don’t know about them, you might miss them. The easiest way to see the mosaic staircases (or even find them) is to join a San Francisco local on a tour of the city’s hidden stairways.

4. Wave Organ
The Wave Organ is a short distance from Golden Gate Park, on a nondescript spit of land projecting into the Bay. This public work of art, which is equal parts simple and captivating, was sculptor George Gonzalez and unveiled in 1986. The Wave Organ was field recordings of waves hitting a concrete drain in Sydney, Australia. It consists of 25 PVC pipes spaced out at various altitudes to capture the power (i.e. sound) of the sea itself. As the water sloshes around at high tide, the effect is a succession of bubbling and gurgling twangs and echoes. There are benches where you may sit and listen to the natural melody.
5. Lombard Street
Meet Lombard Street, the world’s most crooked street! This is the most famous street in the entire city, as well as one of the most interesting spots to visit in San Francisco. It’s known for its high incline, picturesque shrubbery along its eight hairpin curves, and red-brick pavement. Visitors come from all over the world for photo opportunities and to ride down the winding road themselves. You might take it a step further and ride down Lombard Street on two side-by-side wheels, a Segway. This Segway tour is one of San Francisco’s more unusual activities.
