This past weekend I was lucky to get to spend the weekend with my husband and some friends in San Francisco. Thought I'd share a few of the highlights in case you get a chance to visit this great city and you are looking for things to do.
Ride a Trolley
Sure, it's a very tourist thing to do, but it's fun. The lines can be long, but the trolleys are only filled half way at the first stop. Head to the second trolley stop for shorter lines and a (hopefully) quicker ride.
Bike Across the Golden Gate Bridge
We rented bikes from Blazing Saddles at Fisherman's Wharf and rode across the Golden Gate Bridge to the cute little town of Sausalito.
You could take the ferry back to Fisherman's Wharf if that eight mile ride was enough. We decided to keep riding and went about 25 miles that day. The cool weather and beautiful scenery made it a perfect bike riding day!
Victorian House Tour
Our guide, Jay, was really knowledgeable and we had a great time on the 2.5 hour walking tour. We ended our tour on Union Street where we had a really amazing Asian lunch at Betelnut and the most delicious cream puff I've ever had at Pacific Puff.
Everything we ate on our trip was amazing. We used Yelp to help us find pretty much every place we ate.
If you have a smart phone, just use the Yelp app by typing the type of cuisine you are looking for (Italian, breakfast, ice cream) and it will show you on a map everything that it nearby. You can see reviews and get price ranges too. Love that app!
