San Francisco Adventure
We set off on a Wednesday night to the airport from Seattle. San Fran here we come! We arrived safe & sound so we decided to rest up for our big day in the city. We hit the city bright and early to get a jumpstart on our adventure. Here are some things to check out on your trip to San Fran.
The Golden Gate Bridge– There are a lot of places to view the bridge from, we made our way out to Crissy fields. It was a beautiful area filled with people and a view of the beach, the ocean, Alcatraz, and of course the Golden Gate bridge. We would go back for sure and would recommend it as a stop for your travels. There are places all around to view the bridge as it’s the second most photographed bridge in the world.

The Ghirardelli Factory– Here is the perfect place for the chocolate lover. In fact, it was hard getting her to leave. There are gift shops here filled with fun toys and multiple chocolate rooms. Also a place for you to sit down and enjoy some desert. Overall it’s a beautiful area of the pier and would be a recommendation for all frisco chocolate lovers.

Fisherman’s Wharf– There are so many enjoyable places here! It kept us busy for half of our day or more. Here, you have so many places to eat, street shows, the ocean, views of Alcatraz island, a ton of shops all down the street and so much more. We ended up meeting friends here and had a bite to eat at the Boudins sourdough factory (him recommends the grilled cheese sandwich). After dinner we walked the pier to chase a beautiful sunset.

The Painted Ladies– Here are beautiful Victorian homes. This is just a short stop. We stopped here and were amazed at the amount of detail in the homes and how many people were there just to see houses (as we were part of the statistic). Must see!

Hop on Hop off Bus tour– So worth it! You can ride the bus all day and learn so much of the history about San Fran, or you’re able to just ride the bus to where you want to get on, get off, then get back on when you’re ready. We had a blast on the bus and learned so much but at the same time used it as a primary source of transport as we didn’t want to try and park everywhere. Trust us it’s worth the 40 bucks.

Here are just a few of the things we thought you should see/use while on your trip to San Fran. We weren’t able to see everything as we wanted but that always gives you a reason to come back. We encourage travel. Sometimes you have to take a step away from your 9 to 5 and step right into adventure, and may your adventures be great.
Till next time xoxo,
