@Vallegirl913:  Have you been to SF before?  Just trying to gauge how much of the touristy stuff you’d like to do!

Okay, IF you have time, take the like gocar tour. You rent this little gocart and it’s a guided tour around the city. Me and FI did this back in October on our trip out there and it was well worth the money. We got to see a lot of things we wouldn’t have seen otherwise. Also just outside of the city, there is a park with a path to Tennessee Beach which is GORGEOUS.

@Vallegirl913:  I would recommend checking out the Fisherman’s Wharf area – there are great views, some restaurants/shopping, and places where you can book a boat ride the day-of. Ghirardelli square is also nearby, and they have awesome ice cream… mmmm….

 

As far as weather goes, it will probably be about 65 degrees, most likely kind of sunny, but also very windy. Shorts could be fine (a skirt would go wild in the wind), but I would definitely have a sweater or jacket at least. It will also probably be pretty cold at night, so prepare for that! Comfortable shoes would also most likely be nice to have, because the hills are terrible to walk in heels. Though there aren’t many hills right around the Fisherman’s Wharf area.

@Vallegirl913:  Tcho Chocolate factory tour, wine tasting at JAQK Cellars (rsvps encouraged!), coffee at blue bottle, ice cream made in front of you at Smitten, and drinks at the View lounge at the Marriot Marquis.

Ok, I have to disagree with the gocar tour.  Everyone in SF hates those little cars and they can be really dangerous on the city streets.

 

You have to get Dim Sum for lunch/brunch one day.  I personally like Yank Sing.

 

Check out the Ferry Building – they have a great farmers market on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.

 

Take a ride on the cable car – who cares where you go, it’s just really fun.

 

Sunset dinner/drinks at the Cliff House

 

Brunch at Foreign Cinema is a must.  Dinner is also fun too (they screen old/foreign films).  Other great restaurants are Zuni Cafe and Kokkari.  And if you have a free morning check out Craftsman and Wolves and have your mind blown with some breakfast pastires.

 

Walk/shop your way through the Marina or Chesnut Street.

 

March can still be a little cool so don’t bring shorts.  No one wears shorts in SF!  Lol.  Also bring comfy shoes – you will be doing a lot of walking! 🙂
