I can't believe that I've lived in the Bay area for over a year but I've never taken a trip to San Francisco. When I was younger I lived in Southern California and would once in awhile come up north to visit family, but it's not like we went out and explored San Francisco. My boyfriend and I decided it was about time for us to change that. We live only about 40 miles away from San Francisco so we decided to take a quick 24-hour trip. We fully immersed ourselves into the city for those 24 hours and did everything we possibly could. I feel that although we were only there a short period of time we were able to see a little bit of everything. I'm very much a city person and this city had everything to offer. Our hotel was located in this cute hipster part of town where everything around us had so much character. Needless to say, I fell in love with San Francisco.
Our first night was spent at Lands End watching the sunset. The view was absolutely breathtaking. We were lucky enough that the weather was perfect and the skies were clear.
The second day we were in San Francisco we were a little bit more touristy. We spent the afternoon at Fisherman's Wharf and Pier 39. I could not leave Francisco without eating a bread bowl of clam chowder at Fisherman's Wharf.
Our second day came to the end watching the sunset again, but at a different vantage point. Of course you can't spend a day being a tourist in San Francisco and not see the Golden Gate Bridge.
