San Francisco in 48 Hours

I managed to pack in a lot of sight-seeing into just two days in San Francisco.

Here’s what I did/saw:

Admired the skyscrapers in the Financial District

Saw the Christmas lights in Union Square

Sampled clam chowder (yes, in a sourdough bowl) and saltwater taffy

Explored Chinatown’s gastronomy

Went to the Golden Gate Bridge

Strolled around Ghirardelii Square

Toured Alcatraz

Walked around the touristy Pier 39

Found San Francisco’s curviest street; Lombard

Wished for bay windows

Though I’ve been to San Francisco before, it was great returning as it has been a few years. It definitely struck me as a livable city, and has been added on to my now rather long list of places in the world that I could definitely consider calling home for awhile.

Though 48 hours is enough time to see most of the major sights, it felt a bit rushed, and I would recommend at least 3 days to maximize your time in the city. I, however, had to return back south to visit with my family in San José, go wine-tasting and explore the super-charming towns of Carmel and Los Gatos. Stay tuned!
