The colorful homes and eye catching murals of San Francisco have fully gotten my attention. This is my second time in the Bay Area but my first time exploring like a true tourist. I’ve been able to truly flourish and enjoy the many sights that San Francisco has to offer. My trip isn’t complete yet but I thought I’d give you a sneak peak of what I’ve been doing. These are five sites to see in San Francisco.
1.Golden Gate Bridge
I know you’re thinking well obviously Pam, the Golden Gate Bridge is the most known landmark in San Francisco. There’s no surprise there. But hey, I had to include it.
2. Dolores Park
Dolores Park is an ideal place to chill. It’s perfect for the park obsessive person like myself who loves to lay out in the sun, read a book or play a game with friends. By the way, when you visit Dolores Park, don’t forget your “5 Picnic Essentials For A Day In The Park,” you will need them.
3. Twin Peaks Viewpoint
Twin Peaks are two small hills that sit at the highest point of San Francisco. Which means it has the most amazing panoramic view of the city. As you know from my “5 Places In NYC With The Most Amazing Views” I’m obsessed with views so Twin Peaks is my favorite site to see in San Francisco.
4. Painted Ladies
Painted ladies is a multicolored row of Victorian houses made popular by the 90s show Full House. Remember the intro of the show when the Tanner’s were sitting on a blanket in the grass across from a scenic row of houses? That row of houses are the Painted Ladies. How’s that for a trip down San Francisco memory lane?
5. Conservatory of Flowers
The Conservatory of Flowers is a beautiful greenhouse located in the Golden Gate Park filled with exotic plants and flowers. This beautiful floral sanctuary reminds me of “A Breathtaking Day at the Orchid Show” in New York. Flowers make me very happy so the Conservatory of Flowers is my “happy place” in San Francisco.
