Free Things to Do in The Sunset Overview

Being one of San Francisco’s only central neighborhoods with expansive and exquisite open-spaces, free things to do in The Sunset are aplenty.

Daytime in The Sunset sees hordes of tourists take to the streets, mostly heading towards the famed green spaces of this locale. However, locals, daters, and sports fiends are regulars in this neighborhood too, as well as groups of friends and families on a day outing.

As one of the most famed free things to do in The Sunset, Golden Gate Park is always a great go-to option when looking for fun without funds. Attracting a substantial footfall from midday (with a particular flurry when the sun shines), this park is home to eight lakes, trails, open spaces, and great sunning spots, making it a prime free thing to do in The Sunset.

Ocean Beach is another good option when money isn’t in the equation. With more than three miles to stretch those legs, this beach hosts hordes of joggers, surfers, picnickers, families and daters. Although winds and a cool Pacific breeze are a regular feat, this beach is an idyllic spot for a wander and ponder, without having to untie those purse strings.
