We're working on a great project in San Francisco and really enjoying the city. We figure you would enjoy it, too, so here are some ideas for what to do on your trip to Frisco!
You'll definitely want to explore Golden Gate Park and their many cool attractions, such as the Conservatory of Flowers and the Japanese Tea Garden, then proceed to the historic Presidio and on to the Golden Gate Bridge. Walking or biking the bridge is a cool way to experience it, but another way is to rent a convertible for the day and drive across. While you still have the car, the Willie L. Brown Jr. Bridge has a permanent art installation, the Bay Lights, that is incredible to experience at night from the top deck.
You can take a tour on the historic SS Jeremiah O'Brien at Fisherman's Wharf, one of two remaining Liberty Ships from World War II. She's a living museum on the National Register of Historic Places and a National Historic Landmark. And, if you keep track of her schedule, you take a day sail on the bay.
Once you get your land legs back after disembarking from the Jeremiah O'Brien, we recommend you go to Pier 39 and check out the sea lions! Then take a swing through Ghirardelli Square and get some ice cream at the Ghirardelli Ice Cream Shop. From there, you can take the cable car to the shops and restaurants on Market Street.
Of course, San Francisco is known for its Victorian houses. You can drive around in your convertible to see some of them, but if you feel like getting details and lunch, you should go on a walking tour with a local.
Alcatraz is a weird interesting place to check out. These are just a few of the amazing things you can do while you're in San Francisco. You can also take day trips to the Napa Valley, Muir Woods, Half Moon Bay, Carmel-by-the-Sea, and Monterey, among others.
