Bourbon & Branch

A fantastic experience, Bourbon & Branch is an old-style speakeasy. You actually need a password to get in! The drinks are expensive, but well worth it because they are liquid works of art. Plan ahead and get a reservation for the best drinks in SF.

49 Mile Scenic Drive

The scenic drive goes through the most beautiful areas of San Francisco. I’ve never done it, so I can’t say how long it would take. Here’s a link to more details on Wikipedia.http://mappery.com/map-name/San-Francisco-Neighborhood-Map

Beach Blanket Babylon

Stage show – a musical with some crazy large hats. Best to buy tickets in advance, the seats fill up quickly. The show is quite funny and the jokes reflect current affairs with politics and actors. It’s a bit of a walk from BART or an easy cab ride.http://www.beachblanketbabylon.com/

Cable Cars

Touristy and a little cheesy, but hey, some people call it fun. I also found out by watching the movie Reign Over Me, that they are the only moving national monument.http://cablecarmuseum.org/

Ferry Building

Is located at Pier 1. Inside you’ll find unique shopping with hand-made items and many delectables. I highly recommend getting some yummy cheeses from the Cowgirl Creamery then heading to the wine bar to eat your cheeses while you drink great wine. Or get some Japanese deli food and then take the ferry out to Angel Island.http://www.ferrybuildingmarketplace.com/

Fisherman’s Wharf

Very touristy, I usually try to avoid it. You can get to it with BART and then a quick hop on a street car.

KFOG Kaboom (May)

If you happen to be in the area around mid May, I highly recommend checking this out. They are the best fireworks I’ve ever seen. Takes place on pier 38 or so. The fireworks are synchronized with music.http://www.kfog.com/kaboom/

North Beach / Coit Tower

A cute Italian neighborhood with good food. I enjoy walking around, stopping to have coffee here and desert there. The area offers many good restaurants, cafes, bakeries and bars. Here you’ll find Coit Tower, one of San Francisco’s most recognizable landmarks. It’s a long walk from BART, or you can drive there, but parking can be difficult.
