Travel Post: Weekend Trip To San Francisco

After our visit to the Seal Beach, the next weekend, we decided to visit San Francisco. My husband's best friend and his wife whom we met at Pismo Beach were kind enough to host us for the weekend and be our guide.

They picked us up at the SFO airport and first drove us along the steep, uneven roads surrounded by towering buildings. 

San Francisco...the cultural, commercial and financial center of Northern California, is a city on the tip of a peninsula surrounded by the Pacific Ocean and San Francisco Bay.

It's hilly landscape, iconic architecture, Victorian houses and cool summers work its charm on every visitor, who want to live here forever. No wonder it is also as the Paris of the West.

This city worked its charm on me as well, and within a few hours, I was enamored by its persona.

The weather was perfect and the company even better.

Tips while playing tourist in SFO:
  • Wear flats, or your most comfortable shoes. Too much walking involved, so be prepared.
  • Carry a jacket for cooler evenings.
  • Start the day early, so that you get a good parking spot, which is very tough to find.
  • Keep a map handy or use google maps, as it is very easy to get lost on the steep lanes of SFO city.
  • Renting out bikes would be the best option to move around the city.
  • Make sure you rent out Go-Cars atleast for a few hours for sight seeing.
These are random pics we clicked on the go.
Hope you like them.
