What else is there to do in San Francisco?
Of course there is the Golden Gate Bridge to visit and the island former-prison of Alcatraz. In addition, it is worth visiting the different areas of the city as each has a distinct characteristic.
Haight-Ashbury will take you back to the days of the hippies, Castro is at the heart of the LGBTQ community, the Mission is the oldest part of town with much great architecture, many art galleries and also places to eat, Chinatown has lots of colour and great food too. To get between all these areas take the iconic cable cars, though bike and walking tours are also available.
