Get Lost in San Francisco
Embrace Your Inner Kid at Musée Mécanique - Fisherman’s Wharf
Sure, heading to Pier 45 of Fisherman’s Wharf can feel a little touristy, but getting to check out these old timey machines and arcade games is worth it -- even if you aren’t that into the arcade scene. There is a photo booth that develops classic film strips, mechanical musical instruments that will play before your very eyes (for a few coins of course), and hundreds of antique arcade machines all available to play.
Take a Night Tour of the Exploratorium - Embarcadero
Did you know this museum is open to adults only during the “After Dark” session? Who wouldn’t be down for hundreds of interactive exhibits with a cocktail in hand?
Marvel at the Making of Fortune Cookie’s - Chinatown
Ever seen fortune cookies being made before? That’s what we thought. Get the insider’s perspective on how that life-altering fortune was carefully selected for each cookie when you head to the Golden Gate Fortune Cookie Factory.
Enjoy Comfort Foods at Theorita - Divisadero Corridor
Food is one of the best things about San Francisco. While there are countless options to check out depending on your taste buds, Theorita is one spot that is getting some serious attention right now. This joint made a name for itself serving up guilt-ridden comfort foods that warm the taste buds and the heart. The best part? Pie is served pretty much all day long. Who doesn’t love pie?
Explore Coastal Batteries - Presidio
The batteries around Marshall’s Beach not only offer great views of the Golden Gate Bridge, they are also just begging to be explored. Come around sunset for a great photo op or get here in the early morning to avoid crowds and explore these old batteries with a cool morning fog around.
Get Outside the City
Visit Point Bonita Lighthouse
This is probably one of the coolest lighthouses around, simply because you get to walk through a mountain (the tunnel was hand-carved) and cross a swaying bridge to get there. Once you are there, you are rewarded with great views of the Golden Gate Bridge and city in the background.
Walk Around Sausalito Boat Houses
Hope on a ferry from San Francisco or take the scenic drive across the bridge to the quaint town of Sausalito. Grab a hearty brunch (we recommend the pancakes) at the Lighthouse Cafe and grab a coffee to go at Firehouse Coffee & Tea to wander through the color houseboats with.
Take a Nature Hike
Just a quick drive can get you to some pretty breathtaking scenery in the Bay Area. Consider checking the Muir Woods National Monument for a stroll through old-growth coast redwoods, peak at the rugged beauty of the coast contrasted with the Golden Gate Bridge from Land’s End Lookout, enjoy the seaside beauty of Point Reyes Peninsula in the Point Reyes National Seashore, or check out the most epic views of the area from Mt. Diablo. You can’t go wrong when you get out into nature!
Enjoy a Farm-to-Table Burger in Half Moon Bay
A quieter coastal town right outside the city, Half Moon Bay is known mostly for its rugged, beautiful shoreline. It can be a great escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. The Barn is a well-loved spot by locals and travelers alike. This quaint burger spot is known for providing burgers and other dishes sourced from local farms, including their meat from Pomponio Ranch in San Mateo County. They also source most of their other ingredients from local farms as well, making it a tasty and refreshing meal. Aftering grabbing a bite to eat, you can explore the beach trails or go for a scenic drive outside the traffic.
