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
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!
