On day two of their visit we went to San Francisco to explore. Allen didn't have to work that day so he got to help play tour guide with me, I was excited about that :)
Stop 1: Twin Peaks
We thought this would be a perfect first stop. It has such great views of the city. It was WINDY though so we didn't stay long.
Stop 2: Painted Ladies
I love the painted ladies, its such an iconic San Francisco landmark. And who doesn't love full house!?!
Stop 3: Lombard Street
This is one of my favorite stops in San Francisco, I love admiring the twisty street and the beautiful houses that line it. I always feel bad for the people who live there that have to deal with so many people driving on their street, maybe they are used to it!
Stop 4: Alcatraz Tour
This was my little brothers favorite stop of the whole trip! Alcatraz has so much history, we loved walking around and listening to the audio tour.
Stop 5: Ghirardelli Square
Sea Salt Caramel Hot Chocolate.. Heaven in a cup!
Stop 6: Sunset at Golden Gate Bridge
Stop 7: Palace of Fine Arts
Stop 8: Fishermans Wharf
Fisherman's wharf is such a huge tourist area in San Francisco, but its so much fun! We watched the sea lions, shopped around, admired the HUGE Christmas tree, and ate dinner at Bubba Gumps (yum!)
I can't believe how much sightseeing we packed in to one day, it was a blast and i'm so excited my family got to see so much of San Francisco!
