I've been on previously to get a feel for things to do etc. We're mostly booked up, so my wife and I will be heading over to celebrate our 40th B'Days on the evening of Saturday 19th May. We then have accomodation in Union Square booked until Tuesday, so 3 nights, 3 full days to spare before heading on down the coast to Santa Cruz.
We fancy seeing the sights, buildings, parks, fun stuff to do and some decent restaurants after a hard days sight-seeing. We've come up with the following, but would of course appreciate some advice from the SF experts, as it doesn't feel like it "works":
Walking round TransAmerican Pyramid, Ferry Building then Bart upto Telegraph Hill and Coit Tower, Fishermans Wharf (lunch?) then Alcatraz Night Tour booked for 6pm
City Hall and Yerba Buena Gardens, SFMOMA then drive upto Haight Ashbury/Mission Dolores then onto Santa Cruz.
The biggest problems we have are fitting in Presidio and Golden Gate Bridge, Pacific Heights - Spreckles Mansion, Golden Gate Park/Twin Peaks. And is it worth trying to squeeze in Ghirardeli Square?
