San Francisco Travel Diary: 48 Hours in SF

San Fran Travel Diary

Hi friends! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and are looking forward to 2018. After surviving a tough few weeks of finals, over Christmas I got the chance to finally relax for a bit and visit the Bay Area with my boyfriend and his family. Thomas and I skipped the nine hour car ride and instead flew up to Oakland in about an hour flight. His grandma lives about 30 minutes out of the city, so we made two day trips out to San Francisco during our stay. During our first trip, we met up with my roommate Sean, who was also visiting her family in SF.

Pat’s Cafe

After picking up Sean, our first stop in the city was to brunch at Pat’s Cafe. Pat’s is an eclectic little restaurant that’s about a five minute walk away from Pier 39. I ordered a yummy veggie wrap with sweet potatoes, black beans, rice and avocado.

Pier 39

After brunch we walked over to Pier 39 to visit the shops and see a view of the city, including Alcatraz. We couldn’t miss saying hi to the lazy sea lions!

Golden Gate Bridge

The most iconic site in San Fran is of course, the Golden Gate Bridge. We quickly drove by at Vista Point for an overlook view, but we couldn’t find any parking so we ended up going down to Crissy Field to grab a coffee and get a few snapshots in front of the bridge.

Twin Peaks

During our second trip to the city, Thomas and I decided to go to a spot that neither of us had visited before: Twin Peaks. After checking out some photos on IG and driving up a long and windy road, we made it to the top and were able to see a panoramic view of the city.

Fisherman’s Wharf

My favorite part of San Fran is the food – specifically, soup in a sourdough bread bowl at the Boudin Factory. Since Thomas had never been before, we checked it out while exploring around Fisherman’s Wharf.

Cable Cars

Something I’ve always loved about San Francisco is riding in the cable cars! Unfortunately, we didn’t get a chance to ride one during this trip, but if you have time a ride is only $7 and there are different routes to take you around the city.

Have you done any short trips to San Francisco? What are your favorite spots, restaurants and sights?
