Oh my gosh, after 9 months planning and numerous visits to this wonderful forum there is only 48 hours until my flight leaves London bound for your wonderful city. I have found the posts entered invalueable, even though I haven't asked many questions myself (slightly scared of Swingcha!)but would just like to run through a (very) rough itinary. Arrive Tuesday afternoon, booked into Serrano Hotel @ Union Square. Spend afternoon and evening strolling around the square, don't wanna do too much as the jetlag will be kicking in. Wednesday-visit Golden Gate park and Lands End (will take a picnic to eat in park)evening meal and drinks in Union Square. Thursday-spend day around Chinatown and Fishermans Wharf with evening trip to Alcatraz. Friday-shopping day!!!!Saturday- Haight Ashbury, Mission Dolores and stroll down Velencia Street for the quirky shops, if there is time perhaps try to get to Twin Peaks. Sunday- Golden gate bridge and Presidio, trying to fit in the Marina. Monday- leave for Las Vegas. There is 3 of us travelling me(age 33) my sister(25) and my mum(50) We aren't really into the theatre or shows, love food but nothing too fancy, adore shopping (especially if a bargain is involved)and my mum is a bit of a biker (loves dive bars, as i think you call them) But more than anything do not want to leave feeling like i have missed out on anything. Any comments or ideas would be gratefully recieved. Oh and I can't wait!!!!
