My San Francisco Top 10

San Francisco is my new favorite city, "I left my heart in San Fran", as you say ;). The city has so much to offer, I spent seven days there and it was not enough. Here are my Top Ten things to do in the city, in no particular order:

- Coit Tower: Omg, the view from up there is incredible. You can see downtown, the Bay bridge, Golden Gate bridge, Lombard Street, Alcatraz and the surrounding land. It's AMAZING!! It costs 7$ and it's totally worth it. 

- Twin Peaks: Speaking of views, absolutely incredible. A little hike is included to get to the top and up there what you see is fab! You see down to the city and all around it, you can also see Golden Gate bridge. When I was up there it was a bit foggy, so the bridge was barely visible, loved it! It's also close to the Castro district, which is always worth a visit. 

- Alamo Square/Painted Ladies: These Victorian houses look fab next to each other. On top of that you have a fab park to hang out at und a view of the city in the background. 

- Bike Ride over Golden Gate Bride/Vista Point: You see the bridge from different angles, stop at Palace of Fine Arts and then on the beach along the way. It's perfect for pictures. On the other side of the bride there is Vista Point, you get a fab look on the bridge and of course it's another great place for photos. 

- Alcaraz: You get to see the city from the water and then explore the prison. It's very interesting and the audio tour is great! You also get another view of Golden Gate bride and the city. 

- Shopping/Union Square: Macy's, Bloomingdale's, a shopping centre, all you need! And Union Square is very pretty too!!!

- Pier 39/Fisherman's Wharf: Sea Lions, water, lots of restaurants. It's just so much fun to hang out there. The place to go: Boudin, where you can have clam chowder in sour dough bread (it's a must!)

- Cable Car: A must in San Francisco! It's 7$, but the ticket is pretty and you can get from the water to the centre or the other way round. 

- Day Trips: Must sees are Muir Woods, Monterey, Carmel, the 17 Mile Drive and of course also Yosemite National Park. The area around SF has so much to offer. 

- Sunset Cruise: Omg, it's just so pretty!!! Being on the water, enjoying a few drinks and looking at the sunset with Golden Gate bride. 

Of course there are more highlights to see and do in the city, but I had to narrow it down to ten, right?! Other fab places: Lombard Street, Ghirardelli Square/Factory, Ferry Building Market Place and lots of fab restaurants. San Fran is great for Sushi.
