How to see San Francisco in One Day

Our friends Lauren and Joshua made a quick stop in the bay area (from Fort Worth) before heading up to a wedding in Sonoma... and lucky for us, Nicholas and I got to play tour guides in the city with them!

First stop... see the Full House houses aka the Painted Ladies at Alamo Square.

Then, stop by the Ferry Building for lunch.

We ate on the patio at Market Bar. Love the yellow umbrellas!

Walk down to the second cable car stop on Hyde-Powell line at Union Square.
(Don't wait in the loooong lines at the turnarounds... just go up a stop and hop on when it comes by!)

At the end of the line, duck into the Buena Vista to warm up with an Irish coffee.

Take a stroll down to Fisherman's Wharf. If you go all the way down to the end, you can see the gorgeous views of the city to one side and on the other, the Golden Gate Bridge in the distance.
^Yep, it was just a little windy out there!

Next, make your way down to the Marina. Stop by the Tipsy Pig, wander out to the back patio and order a Strawberry Fields... heaven on a sunny day.

Next, it's cocktail hour (not to be confused with the happy hour you just had a the Tipsy Pig!)
Make sure you know the password and step back to the Prohibition Era at Bourbon and Branch.

Now, that is a day well spent in San Francisco. 

(And even better... On your way home, the DD will make the executive decision to stop for pizza since you forgot to have dinner!)

But of course, it is way more fun with Lolo and Joshua in town!!! 
Miss you guys... thanks for visiting and please come back soon!
