San Francisco, the city of cable cars and home of the Golden Gate Bridge! I’ve visited this city twice already and I still want to go back. Below are some tip and suggestions if you were to visit San Francisco!
- Do not rent a car. There will be no place for you to park and it’ll cost you around $70 for Hotel Parking. San Francisco has plenty of ways you can get around: so rent a bike, ride the cable cars, take an Uber/Lyft.
- The only time i would rent a car is to drive into napa and then return the car when you get back in San Francisco
- When booking flights, look to see if Oakland is cheaper because it’s the same distance as SFO airport to get into the city.
Things to do, Places to see:
- Bike across the Golden Gate Bridge: We didn’t make it very far LOL because of his tires.
- Hideout at Kirby’s Cove
- Catch a view at Land’s End- you may even see whales!
- Hang out at the Golden Gate Park
- Take a photo at the Palace of Fine Arts
