what to do on a quick trip to san francisco

Last month I headed out to San Francisco on a quick work trip. I didn’t have too much time but I wanted to see the sites. So I buckled down and got it done with a little help from my friends of course! So let’s see what there is to do when on a quick trip to San Francisco. Once my friends and I got together we began to go out and see the sites. We took an uber to Pier 39 and the Fisherman’s Wharf.

Our first meal was clam chowder in a bread bowl and a lovely adult beverage. Mmm.

I swear he was posing for me. We saw him out the window rom where we were enjoying our clam chowder. The wharf is pretty and very walkable. When we left here we went to see the Painted Ladies.

One of these was in Mrs. Doubtfire as the house the family lived in. This is the park in the opening scene of Full House. It was having a bit of construction done when I was there. 

The next day we got up and grabbed another uber and headed to Golden Gate Park.

You can walk the bridge or take a bike ride over. But alas we didn’t have time for that. After Golden Gate bridge and park we grabbed another uber and headed to Ghiradelli Square.

We had lunch at a cool diner there. I can’t remember the name but it’s right in the square and it was pretty good.

It definitely had a 50’s feel to it. I the vanilla pepsi I had while there. It was delicious. Mmm.

We headed to check out the Ghiradelli store next.

My friend Olivia and I split this delicious sundae. It was so unbelievably good. 

From here we decided it would be a great idea to see Lombard Street and since we were so close we thought we should walk. Oh my what a walk it was. We walked 27 flights up via a sidewalk (this is what my app told me). It was quite a climb. But definitely worth it in the end. Then we walked down Lombard Street to take a pic.

I don’t think I’d ever drive that. Never. Ever. It’s very twisty and curvy. This cute little bus gives tours and they did though. From here we headed to the Japanese Tea Gardens. It’s so beautiful.

There are so many photo opps at the Tea Gardens. It was fairly inexpensive to get in. I think it was $12. Might have been $8. This is my favorite photo from the Gardens.

Last we went to Sonoma. You can do the wine country tours or you can see the Sonoma Race track. Let’s see what we saw.

I love my friends and taking quick trips even when on business makes a trip fun. We got out and saw a lot in one day. One 24 hour period. It was amazing. So if you’re in San Francisco for a quick day do some of these things and you’ll not regret it. I’m so happy to have had these experiences and been able to bring them to you! What would you be excited to visit in San Francisco?
