Top Destinations For Group Trips In San Francisco

San Francisco is full of fun, entertainment, shopping, food, and more, making it a great city for a group trip. While there is a seemingly endless amount of options for venues, events, and destinations, here are some of the most popular to visit with your group this summer.

Catch A Ball-Game

Nothing says summer like spending a day at the ballpark. Even if group members aren’t big sports fans, they’ll be sure to enjoy the experience one of the most charming stadiums in Major League Baseball, AT&T Park, home of the San Francisco Giants. The ballpark’s waterfront location, along with the stadium’s unique infrastructure and architecture, offer simply stunning views. The baseball team plays at the iconic stadium multiple times in June, July, and August so finding a date to take a trip to the ballpark should not be too difficult.

At Professional Charter Services, we offer transportation services to and from AT&T Park, as well as various other stadiums, arenas, and sporting venues. When you travel with us, you don’t have to worry about the traffic, parking, and other travel logistics, so you can focus on tailgating and getting ready to cheer on your team. If you prefer the team on the other side of the Bay Bridge, we can also bring your group to the Alameda Coliseum to catch an Oakland Athletic’s game!

Attend A Concert or Music Festival

The summer is notorious for being the time of year when major concerts and music festivals take place. This summer, there are a number of concerts and live music events in San Francisco and around the Bay Area. You can find performances at top venues, like the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium, the Fillmore, and the Warfield. In addition, our charter bus services can take you to some of the top music festivals in the area, such as the Fillmore Jazz Festival, Stone Grove Festival, and Outside Lands at Golden Gate Park. Like sporting events, concerts and festivals can cause a lot of traffic that can be stressful to deal with. When your group uses a charter bus rental to travel to music events, you can ensure that your trip will be safer, more convenient, cost-effective, and a more enjoyable experience.

Unwind In Wine Country

If your group is looking to get out of the city for a day and relax, a trip to Wine Country may be exactly what you need. One of the most popular excursions in the San Francisco area during the summer is visiting both small-boutique and large-scale wineries. Your group can plan stops at multiple wineries, enjoying tastings at each one along the way. With popular vineyards, like  Sutter Home Winery, Sebastiani Vineyards, and Madonna Estate, there are plenty of wineries and tastings to ensure your group enjoys their time. At Professional Charter Services, we offer affordable Wine Country tours for your group!

Test Your Luck At A Casino

Sometimes, the California heat can just be too much for large group activities. If you are looking to escape the heat but still have a blast, heading to a casino can provide your group with hours of fun. There are few things more exhilarating than taking a trip to the casino, especially when you go with a group of relatives and/or friends. Rather than having to worry about who is driving and trying to coordinate who will ride within what vehicle,  you should instead leave the driving and route planning to experienced drivers at Professional Charter Services. We have taken numerous groups of all sizes on a memorable trip to some of the best casinos near the Bay Area. Our San Francisco casino bus trips are a great way for your group to arrive in comfort and style, and ready for a night of fun!

Spend The Day At Fisherman’s Wharf

If you have a group that enjoys exploring and seeing various attracts, Fisherman’s Wharf is the perfect destination for groups looking for some fun and entertainment. This eclectic, waterfront neighborhood is filled with unique and fun attractions, and it has more family-friendly activities than any other part of San Francisco. From here, your group can take a trip to Alcatraz Island, the historic Hyde Street Pier, Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum, and Aquarium of the Bay.

Have A Fun-Filled Park Day

Golden Gate Park is one of the most popular destinations in the area. Here, you will find dozens of gardens, running and walking trails, playgrounds, recreation and picnic areas, monuments, and so much more spread out through over 1,000 acres of delightful, urban, green space. If your group wants to do more than just lay back and enjoy the scenery, there are various attractions and museums located within the park. For example, the California Academy of Sciences is located in the park and features a four-story rainforest, a natural history museum, an aquarium, and the world’s largest all-digital planetarium. Here, your group is sure to kill some time while enjoying the numerous attractions and features within the popular park.

In addition to what we covered above, there are plenty of events and activities throughout San Francisco and the Bay Area to do and see this summer for your group. Whichever destination you choose for your group, it is essential that you figure out the tedious details of transportation.
