Check out the places we will explore:
Golden Gate Bridge: Declared “one of the 10 wonders of the modern world,” the Golden Gate Bridge not only one of the most recognized symbols of San Francisco, but one of the most photographed sites in the world. Simply stunning!
The Painted Ladies: Lining Alamo Square, the Victorians along Steiner Street are the most famous of the Painted Ladies, aka “Postcard Row.” These houses are best known during the opening credits in television’s Full House!
Haight-Ashbury: The origin of the hippie culture and the birth place of the “Summer of Love.” From the stunning Painted Ladies to the homes of music’s favorite 60’s bands, this district started the counter-culture movement across the USA.
Golden Gate Park: Clocking in at over 1,000 acres, Golden Gate Park is the largest man-made park in the world. With beautiful Eucalyptus trees, gorgeous gardens and museums that will appeal to all ages (including the De Young and Academy of Sciences), this green space is a highlight of the tour.
Marina: A dreamy neighborhood on the edge of the bay, the Marina entices visitors and locals to its boutique-lined streets and hilly green space. Offers unmatched views of the Golden Gate Bridge.
Chinatown: Boasting the largest Chinatown in the United States, this 24-block mecca is bustling with energy, amazing food, and unique and colorful shops that give this area its charm.
North Beach – Little Italy: Voted as one of the USA’s “ten great neighborhoods”, North Beach is best known as the home of Little Italy. From delicious restaurants to authentic sidewalk cafes and bakeries, you will feel the charm of San Francisco as soon as you arrive.
Fort Point: Located just beneath the Golden Gate Bridge, Fort Point gives you a front row seat to the San Francisco Bay. This former military fortification was used during both the Civil War and World War II.
Aquatic Park: Positioned near the end of the Hyde Street Cable Car, Aquatic Park is a National Historic Landmark on the San Francisco Bay. Featuring one of the cleanest beaches in California, be on the lookout for the bold open water swimmers who frequent the area.
Palace of Fine Arts: Inspired by Roman and Greek architecture, the Palace of Fine Arts was originally constructed to celebrate San Francisco’s recovery from the 1906 earthquake. Surrounded by a peaceful garden, it is great for photos.
Ocean Beach: Bordering the Pacific Ocean on the western edge of San Francisco, Ocean Beach is a popular destination for seasoned surfers. Characteristically foggy, the area offers a serene setting outside of the bustling city.
Sea Cliff: Noted for its large houses and ocean views, Sea Cliff’s past residents include actors Robin Williams, Sharon Stone, and billionaire George Soros. Cliff House restaurant is closeby, sitting directly on the Pacific Ocean.
Legion of Honor: Called San Francisco’s most beautiful museum, the palace occupies an elevated site in Lincoln Park and displays a collection of ancient and European art, in an unforgettable setting overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge.
