Reason #3 to Come to BoxWorks: San Francisco

By

Have you dreamed of a city where tech and startups are the norm, rather than the exception? San Francisco is the city that many Boxers call home, and for good reason: It’s an exciting, vibrant city that’s as beautiful as it is quirky. Whether you’re looking for organic breweries or bacon-flavored ice cream, San Francisco has it. And even if you’re not a foodie, you can have plenty of fun just walking around and exploring everything there is to do in our great city. Here are 3 reasons to get excited about visiting San Francisco this October:

The Food

You can get just about anything your taste buds crave in San Francisco. World-renowned restaurants? Check. Vegan baked goods? Check. A Creme Brulee cart? We have that, too! Seriously, the sky – or rather, the size of your stomach – is the limit when it comes to dining is SF, so feel free to get adventurous when you head to the bay this October. For some great Mexican eats, head down to 24th street in the Mission and try La Palma (great burritos!), or make the trek to Colibri for more upscale fare. If you’re looking for something a little different, check out Suppenküche – this German restaurant has amazing food and beer steins bigger than your head, and it’s one of my favorite places to take friends in the city. Even if you don’t venture away from downtown, we’re sure you’ll find something you love.

The Parks

If you want to get a little exercise after your foodie adventures, head out to one of our many parks, like Dolores Park, Golden Gate Park or Crissy Field. Little known fact: Golden Gate park consists of more than 1,000 acres and is bigger than New York’s Central Park! You could spend an entire day checking out attractions like the Japanese Tea Garden, Conservatory of Flowers and even wild bison. It’s just a short train ride from downtown, so don’t miss it.

The Museums

San Francisco has a plethora of museums that run the gamut from modern and chic to quirky and fun. If you’re into art, places like the SFMOMA and De Young Museum where you’ll be able to see creations from up-and-coming artists or classic pieces from legends. If you’re a science buff, our Cal Academy of Sciences has it all: A Natural History Museum, Aquarium, Planetarium and 4-story rainforest all rolled into one. There’s plenty more, too, like the Walt Disney Family museum or even – if you’re looking for something a little edgier – Alcatraz.
