"Whirlwind Tour of SF" Fun Things to Do in San Francisco Tip by cwest03

Do you have only a day or just a few hours and want to see SF. Are you wondering what to do and how to see the most in the short amount of time that you have? Here is a suggested itinerary to pack the most into a short period of time. This assumes that you have a car but can be done on a bike too. I guess that it could be done on foot but it would take several more hours.

With the car you might want to take the GG bridge in which will put you on Lombard. From there head down to Fisherman's Wharf and down the Embarcadero to Pac Bell Park. From here head back to Market and take a quick spin through the Castro. Head past the Castro up the hill to Twin Peaks for the most amazing view of the city. From there head down the hill till you hit 19th and take that till you hit GG Park. Take a drive through the park and head to the Haight. Down Haight Street and weave a few streets over to Van Ness. Take that to Broadway and make a left. This will put you in the heart of North Beach and China Town. North Beach is a great place for dinner and night life.

Parking is not impossible but may be difficult in some areas. You can pay for parking in some places but this can get expensive. Bring your good luck charms in hopes that the parking gods will smile upon you.

That's just a quick trip off the top of my head. It can be done in a few hours or you can take your time and make stops along the way. I've left out lots of details so let me know if you need specifics on anything.

Address: Various locations around the city
