Dreamforce 2018 was quite an exciting event. We made great connections, landed quality leads, learned a whole lot from sessions and Dreamforce keynotes and more importantly, we had quite a lot of fun! So much that we can’t wait to attend Dreamforce 2019 which is just 2 months away!
If you’re not going to leave the Dreamforce venue during your San Francisco trip, it’s better you check out this Trailblazer’s Guide to Dreamforce that we wrote.
But then, there are a lot more amazing experiences at San Francisco that you will love. We’ve listed down a few of them that you might want to consider before you leave the magnificent city by the bay. So dive in and check them out:
This waterfront/marketplace is one of the places in San Francisco that would bring out the child in you. Tell yourself that you’ve done enough work for the week and have fun in the sun for a couple of hours. Then head down to the west of Pier 39 to watch the amusing antics of the resident sea lions. Once you are done with all the sightseeing, sit by and relax on a bench and have one of the famous shrimp cocktails sold by the local crab vendors.
If you are still pumped with energy, head out a little further to the San Francisco Dungeon, Madame Tussauds and Ripley’s Believe It or Not. Totally Worth It!
Golden Gate Bridge is an internationally recognized symbol of San Francisco. A walk down this 4,200 ft., 3 mile long, art deco suspension bridge is definitely a must try. Whether it’s day or night, the view from the bridge is breath-taking! So, grab your camera and head out to this beauty. Make sure that you take pictures of the bridge from different angles.
Alcatraz, is famous for two reasons, 1) for housing of the most notorious gangsters in the United States history and 2) because it is regarded as one of the most secure prisons in the world. There are references made to Alcatraz as an ‘inescapable prison.’ Some of the famous inmates to have been housed were, Al “Scarface” Capone, the “Birdman” Robert Stroud and George “Machine Gun” Kelly.
The prison which once housed close to 1,576 prisoners is located on an island. It’s not as scary as it sounds, but it will give you the chills. There are plenty of tours that’ll take you to the island. But considering the rush after Dreamforce, sooner you book the tour tickets, better it would be. Oh, and for the adventurous ones, night tours are offered as well.
How can you even think of going back home without a souvenir? Here’s the perfect place to get it. Head to Union Square, which is one of San Francisco’s famed shopping grounds. There you’ll find an array of retail and cultural quarters, where you can get small golden bridge replicas to exclusive designer clothes.
After four days of hard work and partying at Dreamforce, you ought to be tired. So give the professional in you some rest and head out to the bustling restaurants and bars in your area. Give yourself a well-deserved break. And then, raise a toast to yet another amazing Dreamforce.
