I recently relocated from SF to wine country, but still work in the city.  There’s a ton of great stuff to do here– you’ll have so much fun!

Here are a few recs to get you started as far as restaurants/activities, broken down by personality type: Romantic SF (Marina, Lombard St), Hip SF (Mission), Foodie SF (Ferry Building, restaurants).

It’s been super cold here recently, but you can get a great view of the bay biking across the Golden Gate.  An alternative is the ferry to Sausalito, which has gorgeous views AND heaters.

Definitely stop by the new California Academy of Sciences; it’s in Golden Gate Park just across from the DeYoung Museum.

And if you want to venture up to wine country for a day trip, that’s also a fun little excursion.  My post on wineries/activities in Sonoma is here.

Feel free to PM me if you have more specific questions– would be happy to help!

I second what everyone wrote.  I will add in Chinatown (huge blocks, great food, and bargains).  Union Square (pretty decorations) and Market Street for shopping.  Also Sausalito (across the Golden Gate), it’s a nice, cute town.  The Exploratorium (more for kids though, so I would rec looking it up online, but it’s famous to take pictures there with its dome), Legion of Honor, Lombard Street (curvy street).

Some awesome restaurants to try:  Home (best home cooked food!), Dim Sum in Chinatown, Cha cha cha’s in Haight street…

Check out Papa Beard’s cream puffs


You could always drive up to Berkeley, Oakland, or Napa for a day and sight see there.
