One Day San Francisco Guide

San Francisco is my Hometown!

I’ve made the San Francisco Guide you’ve been looking for. Since I’m a  true SF native I’m an expert on all things SF (disclaimer: please don’t call it San Fran). Before permanently relocating to London in December, I spent 6 months back home (here’s why)  which allowed me to fall in love with my hometown again. Sonny and I had the opportunity to get married there during his visit in September which was how I came up with this guide. I hope you enjoy my One Day Guide to San Francisco.

 

 

 

Tartine Bakery

Start the day off with no better than a breakfast at uber-popular SF Bakery Tartine, which I had the privilege of getting to go to for the first time. And OMG it was soooooo good and worth the queue. This bakery often runs out of items, so get there at a good time.

There are loads of things to do in San Francisco, the smallest big city in the world. You may be wondering which San Francisco sights you can travel and photograph in the least amount of time. from the houses, food, restaurants and bars, San Francisco has a style all its own. This one day guide takes you to San Francisco's top sights: Union Square, Cable Cars, Pier 39, Fisherman's Wharf and the Mission District in Just a day! Fancy a peak? Here's my one day guide to San Francisco by Flourish-ious.com

 

Walk to Dolores Park

You may have seen this park in a few movies and TV shows. It’s where a lot of us SF locals spend many sunny, chilled out Saturdays soaking up some sun and hanging with the homies. It’s the perfect place to enjoy your breakfast from Tartine.

Balmy Alley

 

Ampersand, 80 Albion Street (near Valencia and 16th streets)

 

Bernal Heights Hill, Bernal Heights Boulevard (near Folsom Street)

 

Heirloom Café, 2500 Folsom Street (between 21st and 22nd streets: 415-821-2500.

 

Take the J Train to Powell St 

You can either have a scout about the Union Square area and Westfield Mall, then head to the Powell Street Cable Car Stop to catch the world-famous Cable Car to Fisherman’s Wharf. This was yet another first for me this past summer. Make sure you have a ticket for this experience purchased or have adequate funds on your Clipper card. ($7 one way)

 

 

Cable Car Ride to Fisherman’s Wharf

This experience is really popular with tourists so if you’re claustrophobic, scared of heights and SF hills, you may want to skip. It was well worth the views though.

Tour Around Fisherman’s Wharf 

There’s a lot to do in this area, like Ghirardelli Square (chocolate sundaes and souvenir opportunities), the Maritime Museum,  and Pier 39. You can take a boat ride on the Bay from here or a boat to Alcatraz.  Depending on how much time you have, I would aim to spend a significant time here. The best times to come here are during weekdays and mornings. Stop by Alioto’s crab stand  for a crab sandwich (Credit Card Accepted)
