About the location

Oh San Fran. It is one of my favorite places - with all its quirks and personality…it is an amazing place to explore for a long weekend (or more!). We've spent several days in SF and then taken side trips to Carmel, Big Sur & Healdsburg (you can find Wild Bum Guides to Point Reyes, Healdsburg & even a Desert Road Trip, if interested in adding on!).

It's a foodies paradise. San Francisco is super easy to get around. It has something for everyone! I discover something new each time I go. You can be as busy as you want or relax and take in the views — from several spots within the city!

If it's foggy or chilly, you can often times hop on the ferry to Sausalito and feel a bit of sunshine to warm you up!

Read below to find out what this comprehensive Guide entails.

Guide Highlights

The Golden Gate Bridge

Well, sure - it is the most visited bridge in the U.S. Also, the most photographed, in perhaps the world…and for good reason!

This is a tie between the food and the hiking/outdoor space.

I've had some of the best meals of my life in SF and I have had some of the greatest hiking experiences!
