5 Things To Do in San Francisco on Assignment with KPG Healthcare

A hotspot for healthcare professionals, San Francisco is an amazing location to work and play. Whether you’re a medical assistant, registered nurse, physician, surgical technician or certified nursing assistant, there’s a strong chance you might find yourself in the Golden State.

While San Fran might seem big, it’s geographically small – making it much easier to explore and experience all of the amenities this wonderful city has to offer. Check out this list of five things you must do while living in San Francisco:

Walk Over The Golden Gate Bridge

The most famous bridge in the world, The Golden Gate Bridge can impress even the most experienced of travelers with a 1.7 mile span. With close to 120,000 cars driving across it each day, there is a pedestrian walkway that lets you cross over the bridge on foot – or even bike across!

Ride A Cable Car (Or Take the BART)

Getting people around Frisco since the late 19th century, cable cars are a staple in this city. A one-way ride provides fantastic views of the city’s infamous hills as well as a fun way to explore. Not a fan of the outside transportation? Take a ride on the BART! One of the easiest ways to get around the Bay Area, this subway system is used to travel from the eastern part of San Fran and the suburbs into Downtown SF.

Shop In Union Square

A place for all serious shoppers, Union Square has some of the largest major department stores and exclusive boutiques. Lining the well-known streets of Post, Sutter, Stockton and Powell, the Westfield San Francisco Shopping Centre has the biggest Bloomingdale’s outside of New York and the second largest Nordstrom in the U.S. – think of the sales!

Make Your Way To A Museum

Visiting this beautiful city wouldn’t be complete with a cultural experience. Home to internationally recognized symphony, ballet and opera companies as well as several avant-garde theatre and dance venues, San Francisco is enriched by the arts.

Did we mention the museums? To name a few, you can meander the new San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the de Young Museum, the Asian Art Museum, the Legion of Honor and even the California Academy of Sciences – the only place on the planet with a planetarium, a natural history museum, an aquarium, and a four-story rainforest all under the same roof!

Escape To Alcatraz

The notorious former prison, Alcatraz is located on an island of the same name in the center of the San Francisco Bay. With some of the U.S.’ most infamous criminals incarcerated there at one time, it’s a popular attraction in NorCal. A fascinating visit, the stories of this prison are legendary! Take a recorded cell-house tour and learn about the attraction as you explore the buildings and grounds.
