I’m not normally one for super touristy travel, but sometimes, ya gotta!
Find the 5 things you MUST do on your trip to San Fran.
Golden Gate Bridge – Let’s be honest, does it really count if you didn’t walk or drive across it? I took a Lyft to the Visitors Center, walked across the bridge, did some hiking in the Marin Headlands and headed back. The best views of the bridge are from the Marin Headlands. Make sure to pack walking shoes – you’ll need them!
Ghirardelli Square – You will spend $14 on a sundae and it will be worth it! There are also some cute shops in the vicinity to check out. My favorite shop was Gigi + Rose. They had a variety of women’s clothing and accessories.
Alcatraz Island – It’s worth the ticket and ferry ride. Full review on Alcatraz.
Lombard Street – I almost passed up on one of my favorite parts of my trip. The greenery surrounding the road is what really took my breath away. I also enjoyed the walk from Lombard Street to Ghirardelli Square.
Alamo Square – Even if you’ve only seen one episode of Full House, the Painted Ladies are a must-see.
