A quick jaunt through San Francisco

We only reserved one day for San Francisco to just hit the highlights, so if you want a quick trip to see it all here’s what you should do…

First, drive across the Golden Gate Bridge and stop at the look out to take pictures (this is your farthest point and you are going to weave your way back to the city’s entrance):

Third, you’re going to head the rest of the way down and then go to Pier 39 which is your final point. Here we walked the boardwalk, saw the Blue Angels practice, had lunch, and of course saw all the sea lions.

Through the loop I just described you will also see Alcatraz, Coit Tower, the Giant’s Stadium, and the Bay Bridge. And of course the sky line of San Francisco…the houses I was most excited for B to see because I’ve been talking about it ever since we met. The house line is unlike any other city (in my opinion) across the United States.
