I recently took a trip to San Francisco with my beautiful girlfriend, Elizabeth. It was her first time going since she’s from Minnesota and it was my fourth or fifth time going since I’ve lived in Los Angeles for the majority of my life. We didn’t really know where to go and what to do as I haven’t been there in a very long time. Here are a few places we went that we thought we would share with you! There are pictures of all the nice attractions. Some pictures are pictures we took and some are ones we found.
1. Golden Gate Bridge
The golden gate was definitely beautiful. Going on the Golden Gate Bridge, whether it’d be driving, walking, or even biking, is a must. The first thing we did when we got to San Francisco was go to the Golden Gate Bridge. The Golden Gate Bridge is also known as the “bridge that could not be built.” Elizabeth and I took a boat tour/cruise under the Golden Gate Bridge where we could feel the breeze and look under the bridge. It was most definitely a great experience.
2. Pier 39
Shops, music, and places to eat. Pier 39 also has sea lions that you can look at. Very cool place to check out while you’re in San Francisco!
3. Ghirardelli Square
Do you love chocolate? Ghirardelli Square is definitely the place to check out if you want one of the best chocolates around. Even if you don’t love chocolate, still check out Ghirardelli Square.
4. Hit the hills! – California Street
San Francisco is very hilly. Not only is it very hilly, the hills are super steep. Whether you’re driving or you’re walking, make sure to check out the hills of San Francisco. A good street to check out is California street but that’s definitely not the steepest of the hills.
5. Lombard Street
This is the world famous Lombard Street. There’s actually people that live in those houses. You can also drive down the street but it’s usually pretty packed.
6. Twin Peaks
Beautiful curvy roads that lead you up a hill where you can see most or even all of San Francisco from a distance. When we went up there, it was SUPER windy. I was scared I was going to fall over. It was all good though. Definitely a place to check out!
Last but not least, Chinatown. San Francisco’s Chinatown was rated the #1 Chinatown in America. There’s a lot of good food and a lot of people there which means finding parking is almost impossible unless you’re willing to pay $15 for 15 minutes; so plan accordingly.
I hope you have fun and enjoy your trip to San Francisco! Stay safe and have a great time there!
