Get Outside in San Francisco

There's so much to see and do in San Francisco's parks. Take short walk near the hotel to see many of the beautiful area sights like The Painted Ladies, Tea Garden, and more. Golden Gate park is a 20 minute walk from The Metro Hotel and a top activity to consider when looking for San Francisco things to do. This park alone features museums, beautiful gardens, a lake, and more.
