San Francisco extended weekend Itinerary

San Francisco May 26, 2017 to May 30, 2017 Our Auntie from Australia came to visit last month and for once she had a request. She wanted to see go to “the snoopy museum” aka The Charles M. Schulz Museum in Santa Rosa, CA. We made it a family road trip during Memorial Day weekend; […]

San Francisco: Intercontinental Mark Hopkins & Top of the Mark

We once again tried our luck with Hotwire and landed a decent deal for the Intercontinental Mark Hopkins on Nob Hill.  Located on the corner of California and Mason, this hotel is literally at the top of a hill. The central location really made it easy for us to get around to places and more […]

Walking on the Golden Gate Bridge

One thing that I’ve always wanted to do was to walk on the Golden Gate Bridge. So for this trip up to San Francisco I insisted that we do that! Of course before walking across the bridge we did some obligatory tourist pictures in front of the bridge. We also roamed around the area looking […]

San Francisco: Good Eats in the Mission District

After hanging out at the Sutro Bathes/Lands End, we made our way to the Mission district. This area is a popular area for the younger generation, and seems to be the more “hip” area of San Francisco. This isn’t quite where the LGBTQ area is (Castro Distric), but we did see quite an influence here. […]

The Sutro Baths Ruins and Lands End Lookout

Our original plan for the day was to go to park our car near the Golden Gate Bridge then find breakfast nearby, then go walk the Golden Gate Bridge and Crissy Fields. Instead I made a wrong turn and ended up heading west into the Richmond District. So we decided to go The Sutro Baths […]

Charles M Schulz Museum and Puppy Cafe in Santa Rosa, CA

The main reason we spent our Memorial Day weekend in the Bay Area was because Auntie (from Australia) actually requested for something! She wanted to see the “Snoopy Museum” aka The Charles M. Schulz Museum and Research Center in Santa Rosa, CA which is a little over 1 hour away from downtown San Francisco (about […]

Muir Woods National Monument on a Holiday Weekend

Our our 2nd full day in San Francisco, we actually left the city to see a few things north. After picking up some breakfast in Chinatown we headed out of the city (sort of) early. Muir Woods is a 1 hour drive from downtown San Francisco and had planned to arrive at about 8am. That […]

San Francisco Chinatown

San Francisco’s Chinatown claims to be the largest Chinatown outside of Asia. So how could we miss out on visiting this area?  As a matter of fact, it was less than a 10 minute walk from our hotel. And we ended up coming here multiple times during our vacation in San Francisco. Golden Gate Bakery […]

Fisherman’s Wharf from Pier 39 to Ghiradelli Square

I’m back! For a couple posts before Yunti will continue to share more about our family trip to San Francisco. Anyways, after eating a little bit of everything we hopped onto Street Car in search of Fisherman’s Wharf (and Pier 39). It’s only a 10 minute walk from the Ferry Terminal Building, but might as […]

Ferry Building Marketplace

Food is always my number one attraction whenever and where ever I am traveling. So when we were planning a weekend trip to San Francisco, the first thing I looked up was good places to eat. One of the first things that caught my attention was the Ferry Building Marketplace. This is a historic building […]
