San Francisco will always have a special place in my heart! This is were my now husband and I had our first apartment together and we have sweet memories from our time in here. SF is by far my favorite city in the US and sometimes I wished we never left! Why do I love it so much?? there's soo many reasons but I'll say my top three would be: 1. The views 2. It's food and wine scene and 3.it's laid back and open vibe.
We recently went back for a long weekend trip to visit friends and I created a short and sweet itinerary for this trip... you could easily spend a week or more over here and at the end of the post I'll give some recommendations of day trips and other things to do if you have a bit more time.
I'll recommend to stay in the Union Square area; even though is touristy its the perfect location for a short trip because it is right int he middle of everything... don't be afraid of the Tenderloin area... it might be a bit grubby but it is not unsafe.
Get your sneakers ready (SF's uniform anyways) and head out to explore the City.
Day 2: this day you can see some of the best streets in SF for people watching, shopping and eating.
Day 3: On the last day in SF take an uber, cable car or walk (so you can earn some extra calories) to the Mission District. The Mission District to me is where all of what SF represents comes together! I love strolling it's streets and peaking in on the many little shops, cafes and restaurants. The best streets are Valencia St and Mission St and of course Dolores Park.
There's tons of good food over here and something for every appetite. In the Mission District you can find the widest array of international food.
If you have more days in SF these are also other cool things to do around:
