Josey Baker Bread

Start your day in San Francisco at the Mill Café/Bakery. San Francisco has long been known for their delicious sourdough bread. This bread is unique because it is created with the local strains of bacteria known to produce flavorful combinations of lactic and acetic acids. These acids give the bread its distinct flavor.

Painted Ladies

If you remember the iconic TV drama Full House, you’ll surely remember the colorful  homes that were the show’s backdrop. These homes, called “The Painted Ladies,” are located on Steiner Street adjacent to San Francisco’s Alamo Square Park.

Crissy Fields Hike (Fort Point)

From Crissy Fields, you’ll get an opportunity to walk along the beach, and observe marshes, on your way to Fort Point. This historic point is located under the southernmost expanse of the Golden Gate Bridge. Along the walk, you’ll be able to take in a great view of the bridge itself. There is also a small gift shop at Fort Point.

Fisherman’s Warf/ Franciscan Crab Restaurant

Head to the Fisherman’s Warf area next, and you’ll find a lively tourist area. Within the Warf, there is the Musée Mécanique. This museum offers antique coin games that you can play! This is a short walk from Pier 39. You’ll find lots of shops, restaurants and entertainment in this area. We ate at the famous Franciscan Crab Restaurant.
