I'm starting my Pacific Northwest Trip in San Francisco. (I'll be scrolling through lists and asking for Portland, Seattle, and Vancouver tips/recommendations later).
  1. Some background:
  2. I do like to hit some of the touristy spots but also enjoy local favorite spots. When I visit new cities I tend to plan an area or two to visit each day. I'm a planner! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I will be there about 4 1/2 days starting June 22.
  3. I enjoy good food, beer & wine, and live music.
  4. My Budget is cheap to moderate so I like deals.
  5. I am not a hiker, biker, or camper. Hiking around the city is enough for me!
  6. I am staying in the Haight-Ashbury area but feel comfortable taking public transportation to get around. I won't have my own car, just relying on public transportation and Uber or Lyft.
  7. These are some lists I've found and read through (Actually I 💾d a lot and got quite overwhelmed):
  8. 7 San Francisco Tourist Traps Even Locals Have To Love 7 San Francisco Tourist Traps Even Locals Have to Love
  9. My Favorite Places to Eat in San Francisco MY FAVORITE PLACES TO EAT IN SAN FRANCISCO
  10. 5 Things To Do in San Francisco 5 THINGS TO DO IN SAN FRANCISCO
  11. What lists did I miss? (Actually now I'm overwhelmed by all of the lists-but some are over a year old) Break it down for me: What should I skip? Definitely see? What else do you suggest? Thank you! ❤️
  12. ➕➕➕➕➕➕➕➕➕➕
  13. Find a way to meet up with Jen Smith :)
    I do have to be there on the 24th for work! Maybe brunch that day?!

  17. You can get a multi-day transportation pass, it doesn't work on Bart (only needed that from and to the airport anyway) but pretty much every other public transportation there. You really do not need a car there.

  18. City Lights bookstore, the alley next to it (for the murals and ground art), and the bar next to it, for the bloody marys.

  19. City Hall!! It is gorgeous!!!! And most likely there will be weddings happening. It is so sweet and lovey watching people getting married.
    (That will be the last one.) 😆

  20. Oh! Check the Food Truck schedule (google it) to see which ones will be where. You can get some really good food from those.
    Also, Bourdain's Layover SF episode has some $$$ and $$ choices and places.

  21. Pack a picnic (we went to the Whole Foods on Haight) and go chill in Golden Gate Park. People watch, browse, gardens, go to the museum (you can access the second level for free for an awesome city view!). We watched roller skaters at the rink for over an hour! It was so fun. (It was a Sunday, the rink is close to the Botanical Garden area).

  22. Twin Peaks. Ice cream at Bi Rite. Thrift shop the stores on Haight. Coit Tower. City Lights Bookstore. Sutro Baths and Lands End Trail. Any live show at the Fillmore, Independent or Slims.
