Evident by its uniquely designed cobblestone Crooked Street, San Francisco is a city of hills guarded by amazing ocean bay side views and the most photographed suspension bridge in history. It’s style of modern and new architecture blends the city neighbourhoods from Golden Gate Park, along Market Street, over to North Beach. Telegraph Hill, in North Beach, is home to one of the best ocean look outs in Coit Tower. After taking in the views at Coit Tower, head over to the Hyde Street Pier and meander through San Francisco’s Fisherman’s Wharf before stopping for a sourdough sandwich at the legendary San Francisco bakery, Boudin Bakery at the end of Fisherman’s Wharf.

San Francisco’s Fisherman’s Wharf and Pier 39
It’s best to get the San Francisco ‘tourist’ stuff done in an afternoon, so head over to Pier 39 where you’ll find the rare sight of smelly barking Sea Lions gracing your presence on the outside of the village.
San Francisco’s Embarcadero and AT&T Ballpark
After you’ve had your fill of the Sea Lions in Pier 39 and you still have some energy, then walk along the Embarcadero to the San Francisco Ferry Building or through the Embarcadero Center and walk along Market Street to Union Square. If you’re in San Francisco during the baseball season, then be sure to catch a game at AT&T Ballpark where the San Francisco Giants play. If you’re as lucky as I was, maybe you’ll catch yourself a double rainbow over the stadium! You’ll complete the nearly three mile walk from Fisherman’s Wharf by passing Golden Gate’s brother, the Bay Bridge.0
