San Francisco is a spectacular city but if you’re like me, you may have only seen it cloaked in fog. So when the sun came out over the City by the Bay, I was determined to find the most Instagrammable places in San Francisco and take advantage of the beautiful weather. I’ve mapped out my favourite photo-worthy places.
If the best place to see a San Francisco sunset and the Golden Gate Bridge is on your California bucket list then the Warming Hut and Torpedo Wharf should be your first stop. This was an incredible spot to watch the sun go down and snap some photos.
The historical Fort Point is less than a 10-minute walk from the Warming Hut. This offers a really unique vantage point to see the Golden Gate Bridge and the Pacific Ocean waves crashing into the seawall. You’ll see professional photographers set up along the wall to take photos of the Golden Gate Bridge at sunset so you’ll know you’re in the best place.
San Francisco Cable Cars
If you want to capture the most iconic San Francisco photo then you have to take a cable car. You can hop on and hop off the cable cars, and snap photos all day long.
Palace of Fine Arts
My new favourite place to take photos in San Francisco is the Palace of Fine Arts. If you’ve been following my Instagram stories, you’ll know I’m slightly obsessed with this gem. If you want to find parks, ponds, and historical architecture in San Francisco, then look no further than this location for the best Instagrammable spot.
Fairmont San Francisco
I was lucky enough to be staying at the iconic Fairmont San Francisco, a luxury hotel situated on Nob Hill, which offers breathtaking views of the Golden Gate Bridge and the Bay from many of its guest rooms, the Crown Room (like my Instagram post below), and the world-famous Penthouse Suite. Ask for a Signature Room or one of the Suites that offer feature picture windows and balconies with unparalleled views.
There you have it. In my opinion, these are the best places for take photos in San Francisco, California if you’re visiting this beautiful city. Do you have other locations you’d add to the list of most Instagrammable places in San Francisco? Let me know!
