Tuesday in San Francisco

Fun Things to Do Each Week in SF

Tuesday in San Francisco is full of surprises. On the first week of the month, you can visit a number of SF's top museums admission free. You can also journey out on a free walking tour to learn more about this city's history.

Other fun things to do include sampling goodies at the Farmer's Market at the Ferry Building and catching a show at one of SF's theaters.

Farmer's Market

Every Tuesday, you will find an amazing Farmer's Markets at the Ferry Building along the Embarcadero. It features dozens of local producers offering up their goodies from fresh fruits and veggies to homemade sauces and jams. If you love to try new foods, then you will definitely want to check this out.

It's from 10am to 2pm outside the Ferry Building at the end of Market Street.

Another popular activity on Tuesday in San Francisco is the theater. Almost every night of the week, you can catch a performance at one of the larger theaters such as the Golden Gate Theater or the Orpheum Theater. You will also find dozens of smaller shows at theaters in places such as the Cartwright Hotel.

Shows range from large productions such as the Lion King, Mama Mia! and The Book or Mormon to small, lesser know shows written by local, up-and-coming artists.

More Events on Goldstar

One of the other places that I often look for activities on Tuesday in San Francisco is on Goldstar. On this site, you will find tickets for almost 200 upcoming events and activities.

The best part about looking on Goldstar is that all of their tickets are sold at up to half-off the full retail value. This means you can stretch your dollar and do even more during your visit.
