A Weekend in San Francisco

Only have two days in San Fran? Well, that’s enough time, I promise! There’s a lot to see in the city and surrounding area, but if you plan it right, you can certainly make the most of your short time here and enjoy all this area has to offer.

Everyone has different things they want to see, but picking your must-see sites is crucial. On my recent trip there I went old school and broke out a map of the city to discover exactly where things were and what my friend and I wanted to see the most. While it’s totally doable to see almost everything, we decided to take our time and just see what we could. Also, along with our sightseeing in the city on Saturday, we booked a day tour for Sunday to see the Redwood trees in Muir Woods and go wine tasting in Sonoma and Napa. Yes, all of this can be done in one weekend!

Here are the main spots to see (it’s simply up to you to prioritize what you want to do!):

• Battery Spencer (Popular Golden Gate Bridge Viewpoint)
• Baker Beach (Popular Golden Gate Bridge Viewpoint)
• Lands End Labyrinth
• Sutro Baths
• Presidio Park
• Japanese Tea Garden (Golden Gate Park)
• Moraga Street & Mosaic Tiled Steps
• Twin Peaks
• Mission Delores Park
• Painted Ladies (Victorian Houses Featured in Full House)
• Lombard Street
• Fisherman’s Wharf & Pier 39
• Alcatraz

• Trish’s Mini Donuts at Pier 39
• Za Pizza
• Swensen’s Ice Cream

Exploring Outside the City:
• Sausalito
• Tiburon
• Muir Woods (Redwoods, requires booking)
• Sonoma (Wine Tasting, requires booking)
• Napa (Wine Tasting, requires booking)
