UNUSUAL THINGS TO DO IN SAN FRANCISCO

Wave Organ

This is a unique sculpted structure on the banks of the bay of San Francisco in the year 1986. The series of pipes are placed in such a way that they create movements upon their interaction with the sea waves and create sounds that can be heard by the listeners at different stations. The sound effects vary depending on the tide levels but it usually includes sounds like rumbles, gurgles, hisses and sloshes. There are many benches and platforms made from stone for the visitors to sit and enjoy this man made wonder. The 360-degree view of the San Francisco city from this place is also breathtaking, giving it an added edge in the must visit places.

Gregangelo Museum

A Mediterranean style of construction built in the early 1920s, this place is a treasure trove of some of the most unexplored and undiscovered history of the city. The place houses intriguing artworks including awe-inspiring installations, optical illusions and interesting stories. The museum is a storehouse of unbelievable folktales described in a glittering series which will leave you mesmerised.  Group tours are available by appointment and can also be booked for Sundays or other holidays though they will charge extra hour rates for that.

Presidio Pet Cemetery

The final resting place for the hundreds of scaly, furry and feathered friends who selflessly served the military families residing at the Presidio, this place is definitely worth a visit for an offbeat experience. It offers a picturesque view of the San Francisco Bay. You can see a variety of handmade tombstones with loving handwritten messages for a variety of pets, with cats and dogs leading the list. Other than them, birds, reptiles and rodents have also found a place here.

Peephole Cinema

The name itself is enough to go visit this theatre with a unique concept. Hidden in the lanes of the heart of the city, this cinema is known for its continuous screening of snippets from avant-garde and silent movies. You will have to peek through holes on the walls of an ancient cottage to watch the streaming. The place is open all day and night so you can visit anytime and enjoy this once in a lifetime experience.

Sutro Baths

Once a cluster of seven amazing glass roofed saltwater pools fed by the waters of the San Francisco Bay, this place is now famous as an important historical landmark. The eerie ruins are a romantic memorabilia of the lavish lifestyle of the past. The view of the stretching oceans in front is something not to be missed. You can also chance upon old shipwrecks and other interesting artefacts which stands as a witness to the glorious history.

With so many fun activities to do and places to visit, San Francisco offers a myriad of options for people from all age groups. Starting from gastronomical choices to intriguing spots to beautiful locales to heritage structures, the list is endless for the whole group to enjoy and have a wonderful time together. So, make your bookings now to get set for a quirky holiday!

    I’ve recently been to San Francisco for the first time. We did see the Sutro Bath ruins, but shame I didn’t know about the Wave organ. Would have loved to experience that as well. Oh well, seems I’ve got to come back then 😉 thanks for sharing

    I’ve lived in SF the past few years, and have been to all these excep the Gregangelo Museum! Wow, didn’t know about that. Maybe if I get the chance to go back (we just moved to the islands), I could go check it out.
