Top 10 Things to Do In San Francisco
Each time I visit a new to me city I try to do something that is really “touristy” for lack of a better word. But when I was in San Francisco there was so much to see and do that I had a hard time deciding on just one activity. So here’s what I wanted to see while I was in town.
- The Golden Gate Bridge but I had to cross it too.
- Alcatraz or The Rock which was a Federal Penitentiary that housed inmates like Al Capone, George “Machine Gun” Kelly and more!
- The Painted Ladies what 80’s child could resist seeing those house made famous by Full House.
- Ghirhadelli Chocolate Factory–chocolate, who can resist??
- Fisherman’s Wharf where there is shopping, restaurants, Boudin’s Sourdough factory and more!
- The Presidio which is also where The Walt Disney Family museum is, but we got to town on a Sunday and were able to enjoy Picnic on the Presidio or Off The Grid. Be sure you head out hungry if you are going to enjoy the food trucks!
- The Walt Disney Family Museum is a magical place just like all Disney locations. I even shed a few tears while I was visiting.
- Ride The Trolley’s because they have been famous for as long as I can remember, probably even longer, but I swear I can still hear the commercial playing, Rice-A-Roni The San Francisco Treat! ~~ Please tell me you sung a little bit with me!
- Lombard Street which is on of America’s crookedest streets and has a gorgeous view whether you are looking up, or going down! Want to own a residence on Lombard Street?? There was a couple looking at a house while we were there and I of course had to ask what the price tag was. For only 1.5 Million Dollars you can own a home that is 1,800 sq. feet on the Famous Lombard Street, so I’m thinking I will stay in Missouri for awhile and visit San Fran!!
- Angel Island which is known as the Ellis Island of the West.
So I had my list and I was ready to conquer it plus eat at a few restaurants and enjoy the time in San Francisco! I’m happy to report I at least got to see and do everything on my list but I didn’t explore Angel Island or Alcatraz but I got to see them by boat so I think that was a winning ticket!
Earlier I told you about Go City Card that allows you to save on attractions allowing you to see and do more when you are visiting cities. I put my Go City Card to good use and was able to take A Bridge To Bridge Cruise as well as finish most of the to do list! Stay tuned for even more details about my trip to San Francisco!
