How to Spend A Weekend In San Francisco
1. Baker Beach & Land's End
I love both of these places since they give you amazing views of the Golden Gate Bridge. Baker Beach is right beside the bridge, and Land's End is an easy hiking trail overlooking the bay and bridge. When people think of California they picture endless sunshine, but when I went to San Fran last July it was pretty cloudy and in the high 50s so it wasn't warm enough to swim, still beautiful though and perfect hiking conditions!
2. Muir Woods
These ginormous redwood trees are so cool to see. When my boyfriend & I were driving to Muir Woods we got so lost and ended up somewhere in the mountains, where there were houses at canopy level with the trees. Needless to say, I was very spooked and nervous coming down, but was happy to explore the forest on foot.
3. Mission Dolores Park
I loved this park! It's huge and overlooks the city. There were so many groups of people chilling there and vendors selling drinks, it was a very relaxing scene.
4. Lombard Street
I'm an anxious driver so waiting in the VERY steep tourist line to drive down Lombard Street was another situation that had me holding on. There's a gorgeous view of the city from the street so the nerves were worth it!
5. Eat, eat, eat
I had some amazing meals in San Francisco including tacos from a hole in the wall place and pho in the Mission District. The Hog Island Oyster Company for seafood stew and shrimp & grits and Sweet Maple for brunch were stand outs for me. Both places had over an hour wait so we knew they must be great.
