We greatly appreciate Liza Normandy’s continued outreach sharing some great information with our community via her SSF Normandy News page HERE.

From Liza:

“15 Best Things to Do in South San Francisco…”
Author Arturo’s Final Thoughts:
“South San Francisco does not often land on the list of leading tourist destinations, as it is more known for the business and industry endeavors in its fold.
Nevertheless, this city has many hidden charms owing to its superb valley location and proximity to San Francisco Bay as well as the Pacific Coast.”
Check out the article HERE and let us know what YOU would recommend!
Updates from our social media – some great suggestions – thanks to all you shared ideas!

Martha Guinn Moore

Oyster Point; Orange Park sculpture gardens, flower gardens and the cool playgrounds; walk the neighborhoods; Little Luca’s for lunch; Joanne’s for breakfast or ANY meal (muffins!); stop and visit with the neighbors out washing their cars or taking the garbage cans in; hike up San Bruno Mountain; watch the kids play ball or tennis at Buri Buri Park; pick up some treats at Sees and bring them home to the parents; and maybe, thank your lucky stars that you are a South City Girl at heart and always will be no matter where you travel or who you’ve become.

Much Love and Respect From The Industrial City !!!!!!

Andrew Hernandez

Walk the Bay trail and read historical significance of SSF.

Hike sign hill and slide down some letters.

Play bocci ball at Orange park.

Walk up grand at dusk to get great pics of city hall.

Visit 47 hills or The Standby for evening drinks.

Nick Evans

For lunch go to Little Luca’s and get yourself a deli sandwich loaded with their garlic sauce, or try Darby Dans and get the Sleeper Special.

La Tapatia on Grand Ave has some of the best Mexican food you’ll ever taste. El Faro has some amazing burritos as well.

For dinner try the Sky Dragon Chinese restaurant.

Need a fix for your chocolate addiction? Go to the Sees Candy factory.

God, I miss South City so much.

April Suarez

The only thing I would recommend to a tourist is to buy tortillas and carnitas from La Tapatia

Michele Salmon

Actually, you cannot camp overnight at San Bruno Mountain State and County Park.

Carolina Victoria Salinas

Hike sign hill, buy bread at Raymond Sourdough bread, get some yummy coffee at Cafe de Casa or some delicious Mexican Mocha at Antigua Coffee shop, get your nails done buy the friendliest nail tech and owner Lily at Princess Nails, best sandwich shop Little Lucas or catch some mouth watering lollipop chicken at Sky Dragon, check out the Parks and Rec Holiday set ups at Orange Park during the holidays, get some chocolate at Sees Candy (if your around during the holidays, check out Santa on the roof) take a scenic walk or bike ride down on Bay Trail
