I would like to go to San Francisco with my girlfriend in next month. But I do not have any clue regarding trip duration and the places which we can’t miss. Could you people help me in planning my trip to San Francisco? Thanks in advance

Hi Jemssmith,

Have you checked this thread which was just recently posted?

Quick places not to miss. Fisherman's Wharf, restaurants and coffee sports along Columbus Street, Chinatown, the cable cars, Ghiradelli Square, The Cannery, Golden Gate Bridge, Japanese pagoda in Golden Gate Park, Alcatraz Island, Palace of Fine Arts, Exploratorium, Ferry Building, and if you like baseball--go to SF's SBC Park. (Some people also like Pier 37--but it's very touristy)

And don't forget to go up to the wine country (either Napa Valley, Sonoma Valley, or Russian River area) and Muir Woods (north of town near Sausalito).

We did the winery tour which took us from San Fran out to Napa and Sonoma - and l loved it - it was a day trip organised through our hotel but l think it is widely available. It cost approximately $99 and it took us to around 6 wineries - which from having been on wine tours since they were excellent - very detailed and even down to the point of how to taste wine!

We lunched in Sonoma - gorgeous wee town with a village green which had a lake and ducks!

Can really recommend the wine tour! We visited at the start of September 3 years ago and the weather was absolutely wonderful!

San Fran itself is a great city - Fishermans Wharf, Alcatraz, Ghiradelli Factory, Golden Gate Park, the Cabe Cars, Castro area, walk/cycle the Golden Gate bridge great shopping and lovely laid back people!

I loved San Francisco!

Lunch at Cliff House is both good food and plenty to see...before you go to Muir Woods, pick up a cracked and cleaned steamed Dungeness carb, loaf of sourdough and bottle of wine...just after you cross the Golden Gate, take the Sausalito Lateral Road exit and follow it west to Conzelman Road and find great views of the bridge with the city in the background (money shot) and see the WWII gun emplacements... great places to enjoy your crab

Oh that talk of food has reminded me - clam chowder in a sour dough bowl - delicious! Picked mine up down at fishermans wharf just watch out for the seagulls!

And then theres the cheesecake factory on top of Macys - dont get me started on that!!!!!!!!! Mmmmmmmmmm cheesecake!

I guess, nobody wrote about Coit Tower (may be I haven't noticed). It's great to see the city from such height!
Fisherman's wharf is great. I enjoyed being at the Pier 39, ecpecially when there are some musicians or singers, it's good to sit on a banch, listening, breathing clean air!
Metreon (cinema), victorian houses, Lombard street...
