Please comment on my itinerary


We’re coming to San Francisco soon and would like opinions and suggestions on the following itinerary. We’re look to have a relaxing vacation with some time to "smell the flowers"

Saturday Day 1: Arrive to SFO @11:00 am and take BART to our hotel in Union Square (get there around 1:00). Since we’ll be getting up around 5:00 am that day we want to take it easy. Take a cable car to Ghirardelli Square for lunch and then Fisherman’s Wharf and Musee Mecanique. Go back to hotel to relax for a couple of hours and dinner @7:00 at Foreign Cinema.

Sunday Day 2: Lombard St, walk by or take a quick look at Palace of Fine Arts and/or Explotarium, take some pictures of Golden Gate Bridge (we’re not planning to cross it but just want a nice view of it). 6:00 pm tour of Alcatraz.

Monday Day 3: Wine Lovers Tour with Extranomical

Tuesday Day 4: Ferry Building/ Farmers Market for a couple of hours and then Golden Gate Park. 7:30 dinner at First Crush.

Wednesday Day 5: Rent a car and drive to Cambria.

Thank you

San Mateo...

Chrissy Field has a great view of the GG Bridge, and it's right across the street from the Exploratorium. If you have extra time in the area, you could take a walk along Chestnut St. which has a lot of nice shops and cafes.

Lucky13, I've been reading your posts as my husband and I are also considering a week in CA -- flying into SF, spending time there but vacationing down the coast as well. We won't be coming until Oct., so I'll be interested in feedback on how you like the way you've divided your time.

Now that sounds pretty relaxed! I like the pacing. So many folks try to cram in too much. See you soon.
