SAS' Crew tips: San Francisco

Flight attendant Jason Krowicki’s favorites to eat, sleep and walk around in San Francisco.

Japanese Tea Garden in Golden Gate Park

Golden Gate Park is both beautiful and huge. I recommend going to the Japanese Tea Garden, the oldest Japanese garden in the US and also the birthplace of fortune cookies.

Glide Memorial Church – Sunday celebration

One thing you just can’t miss is the Sunday memorial service with the choir. This is a great way to experience the diversity of the city and get your Sunday off to a great start. Every­one is welcome, regardless of religion. It’s a two-hour service with a choir performing during the first hour. If you want to leave without hearing the sermon, there is a short break.

Services start at 9am and 11am.

The Mission district

I love being in the colorful Mission District. It's perfectly suited for a nice walk. This hip borough offers cool second-hand stores, galleries and delicious Mexican food. And the creative graffiti walls will provide you with great motives for your social media-posts.

Dinner and drinks at Tacolicious in the Mission district

All their tacos is a must, just as their exquisite Mexican drinks. I highly recommend this place. They throw a daily happy hour between 3-6 PM with bar food and sangria at a reasonable 5 dollar-price.

Take a walk in the Russian Hill area

Run, walk and enjoy the stunning view from Russian Hill. For me personally, the best way to kick off the day i San Francisco is to take a morning-jog in the Russian Hill area, Krowicki says. The finest hot-spot in the area is a little place called Ina Coolbirth Park. Go there to enjoy the magnificent view over the sea, Alcatraz and the city.
