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

Alcatraz / Pier 39

Take a tour boat from Fisherman’s Wharf and check out the sea lions of Pier 39 on the way over. Make sure you buy your tickets in advance though, they sell out pretty quickly. Some tours offer audio, I recommend add that on.http://www.alcatraztickets.com/tours/tourType.cfm?ttid2=83

Beach / Stinson Beach

Hang out, check out the scenery. The drive from Stinson Beach out to the Point Reyes Lighthouse (out by Drakes Beach) is beautiful. The beaches in Northern California are usually pretty cold though, so don’t expect to swim!http://www.stinsonbeachonline.com

Golden Gate Park

At the park you will find a gorgeous flower conservatory, Japanese Tea Garden, and, surprisingly, some buffalo right in the middle! Great place for a picnic or nice long walk. The park ends on the west side at Ocean Beach. Mapperyhttp://tinyurl.com/4v9o8

Muir Woods

Here you’ll find the tallest trees in the U.S. This forest will make you feel very, very small and humble, a wonderful place to visit. The woods can get chilly, so dress in layers. Also, parts of Return of the Jedi were filmed here.http://www.nps.gov/muwo/
