I’m taking my wife’s brother and his wife to San Francisco next weekend. I’ve been there once, and seen a lot of it, but this time the plan is to live in a hotel in the city and walk around and use the trolley to get to all the places if possible. Is that possible? Or should I plan on using the rental car for a lot of places?
The places I vaguely had in my head should solidify into a more solid list with your help.
Pier 39 (what to see here? Food maybe?)
Alcatraz (where does the boat leave from? Pier 39 or closeby?)
Good Pakistani Restaurants
Good Restaurants generally
Presidium (I think that’s what it was called, big place with roman-looking architecture)
Golden Gate Bridge (from Northern side, right?)
That tall lighthouse looking building
Twin Peaks (loved this place last time, especially near sunset and at night) overlooking city
What did I miss? Any and all suggestions are welcome, including suggestions on transportation and what type of places we can visit by walking or by trolley.
I’ll be there on Friday night, so we’ll have all of Saturday and Sunday to explore as much as we want. I was thinking Monday would be a good day to go down Highway 1 and show them Monterey, etc. But I could also use a third day for San Francisco if you think it deserves one.
