The other day I was looking through pictures on my computer and stumbled upon some pics I took a few years ago when the bro and I went on a fun, impromptu trip to San Francisco!
This trip was the first time I had ever visited California. I still sometimes think about how much fun it was. We did as much as we could fit into one weekend. We rented bikes and rode across the Golden Gate bride (word of advice – don’t wear jeans for that), we took a bus tour through Muir Woods, had a delicious and healthy lunch in Sausalito, toured Alcatraz prison, spent an afternoon at Fisherman’s Wharf, rode the trolly all day long like little children and rounded out the weekend with a quick stop at At&t park.
San Francisco is such a beautiful city. I must say it reminds me of a more beautiful New York City since the bay area is just so lovely and the city has tons to do. If you ever have the opportunity to go visit, I highly recommend it.
Here are some highlights from my trip!
A view of Alcatraz from the top of a very steep hill!

A fun panoramic picture outside of At&T park. I will be back to watch the Mets play here!

My favorite picture by far
The tallest tree in Muir Woods, fallen to the ground

Since we had never been to San Fran before this trip, we booked an 8 hour tour bus that made a bunch of different stops and even dropped us off in Sausalito for lunch. If you’re traveling to a new city I highly recommend booking a tour bus so you can take in a bunch of different parts of the city in one day.
Have you ever been to San Francisco before? What is your favorite part about traveling with family?
