I’ve recently gone to San Francisco twice in the last 4 months (after not visiting for 10 years!) and it’s quickly become one of my new favorite cities. I’m heading back again in a month and will be happy to visit/revisit a few sites.
It is such an easy (though sometimes dangerously steep) walking city which is probably one of the biggest reasons why I love it. It can be a little cold for me (50 F in May – come on guys!) but I also like the brisk weather. We have stayed around Union Square the last few times that we have visited and so I’ve become a little more familiar with some of the sites in the area. Of course I almost managed to find the centrally located Target as well (the little one loves it as much as I do!) But these 3 places to visit in San Francisco are my favorite areas so far.
3 places to visit in San Francisco
The Ferry Building
The Ferry Building is one of San Francisco’s most historic sites reigning over the east side since 1898. The imposing and graceful clock tower immediately greets you on all sides. I loved observing the architecture in the area and particularly on Market Street leading up to the Ferry Building. While fewer ferries transport passengers from its piers, it does boast a wonderful Farmer’s Market Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays.
The food range is amazing from macarons to pastrami sandwiches to fresh apricots.
It is also one of the city’s most accessible viewpoints of the bay with a gorgeous view of the Bay Bridge. See more pictures in this post and sneak a peek at some gorgeous produce.
