I grew up in Sacramento, CA, which is about 1.5-2 hours driving to San Francisco!
I’ve been on many many day trips to the city for shopping or just walking around and exploring. I almost rarely spend the night there due to the cost. It’s close enough just to drive there and back in a day.
I’ve done all the major touristy things in San Francisco in previous years, such Haight and Ashbury, the wharf, China town, cable cars, Alcatraz, etc!
Today, I am going to go to a clothing store. But I also want to find a nice restaurant to eat and do some exploring on foot.
