We're a couple in our 60s planning 4 days in SF; need some help planning some days. We've scheduled a few activities and they were only offered at the times we booked, so we're committed to those.we're staying at the Donatello. I've compiled a list by neighborhoods of restaurants that we might be interested in so I think we're set there. What I'm having a hard time with is knowing how much time to spend on each thing we've planned. We planned on buying the MUNI pass, but wonder if that's wise if we do the hop on/off tour, which gives you 2 days of rides. Any help is much appreciated! Thanks, Sharon
Tues, Day 1: arrive early afternoon after flight from the East--lunch --possibly at Mama's--cable car to Ghiaradelli Square, walk around Fisherman's Wharf, see sea lions; we had planned an afternoon around North Beach & Telegraph Hill, but Coit Tower rec'd such mixed reviews here, we nixed it. Mistake? If we went to the Wharf or Square and combined it with the Telegraph Hill walk, how much time would you allocate for each? Dinner at Albona or Piazza Pellegrini in North Beach. (Time? Stop at Trader Joe's for some wine to take to our room!) Cable Car back to Donatello.
Wed, Day 2--Possible: Hop on/off tour? Golden Gate Bridge/ Sausalito. 2 PM Nob Hill tour?
Thurs, Day 3--Chinatown with 2 PM tour with Evans; evening at Golden Gate Park and evening at the Academy there?
Fri, Day 4--Daytime: What "must see" have we missed? Evening: Dinner at Butterfly and Alcatraz tour.
***Fleet Street Market? Worth a visit?****Top of the Mark? Worth having a drink there for the views?***Yerba Buena?****The Castro?
Sat--Drive through Napa --lunch-- en route to Arnold, CA (Here we'll go to Calaveras State Park so we're skipping Muir Woods--so much to do; also many wineries in Sierras so we're doing that there, too--although Black Cat in Napa sounded interesting) and then onto Yosemite for a few days. And another whole season & style of clothes!
