Here are the places we will explore (photo stops noted by *):

Fisherman’s Wharf

One of San Francisco’s most popular destinations – from old shipyards, to Boudin’s Bakery and the legendary sea lions, Fisherman’s Wharf has it all.

Marin Headlands*

Offering a stunning perspective of the Golden Gate Bridge with downtown San Francisco in the background, this awe-inspiring view is the perfect place to capture a memorable photo.

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. With delicious restaurants, bakeries and cafes, it is not to be missed!


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.

City Hall

This beautiful Beaux-Arts monument epitomizes the high-minded American renaissance of the late 18th and early 19th century. The site of Joe Dimaggio and Marilyn Monroe’s marriage in 1954.

Twin Peaks*

Featuring a panoramic view of all of San Francisco, Twin Peaks offers ones of the best perspectives of the downtown skyline, surrounding hills and vistas (weather permitting).

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.

The Mission*

Known for its prominent and colorful mural installations, delicious food, and vibrant art and music scene, The Mission embodies the culture of old and new San Francisco.

The Castro

One of the most vibrant neighborhoods in the USA. Colorful bars & restaurants line the streets, with the historic Castro Theater overlooking the area Harvey Milk called home.

Pacific Heights*

Offering one of the most scenic outlooks in all of Northern California, Pacific Heights is home to Billionaire’s Row, featuring the estates of politicians and tech titans.

Golden Gate Bridge

Declared “one of the 10 wonders of the modern world,” the Golden Gate Bridge is one of the most recognized symbols of San Francisco. Simply stunning!


Located just across the Golden Gate Bridge, this artistic enclave has the setting and beauty of a European Mediterranean town. Enjoy your lunch on the San Francisco Bay!


Former military base, now a beautiful park that includes Crissy Field, Fort Point, Lucasfilm’s (George Lucas) headquarters and the Walt Disney Museum.

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 WWII.


Nestled near downtown San Francisco, the Tenderloin neighborhood continues to resist gentrification, all while spearheading the local arts movement.
