Some of the places I was able to visit include:
- Alcatraz - Yosemite - Tahoe - Napa - Sonoma - Muir Woods - Salsalito - Big Basin - Red Sox v. Oakland A's series in Oakland - Stanford University - And too many areas within SF to name
(Jackie, did I miss anything??)
Here's a recap of the trip J & I took in June 2010.

A trip to Muir Woods to see the Red Woods

This photo kills me. Haha, poor Adrian.
A trip to the martini bar, Martuni's (a must every trip)
Dim Sum in Chinatown
Drinks at the Rogue Brewery
Fisherman's Wharf, Pier 39
Biking to Sausalito
Seven Sisters - Jackie & Adrian lived right near Alamo Square & these Painted Ladies (yes, the Full House houses)
My favorite restaurant in SF is definitely Burma Superstar. It is the only place I've ever gone for Burmese cuisine and let me tell you, it's phenomenal. And if you're looking for a quick, cheap bite to eat, Nick's Crispy Tacos is another fan favorite over here.
And Martuni's is so much fun for martinis, especially if you're in the mood for a piano bar. And who isn't?!
San Francisco certainly has its share of varied weather, but it's not as extreme as the Northeast can have. However, it is not sunny San Diego. That was definitely a harsh reality for me at first, especially visiting in November and May when the weather has already cooled off, or has not warmed up yet. But my trips to SF in June (above) and October were warm, blue skies everyday. I'm glad I had the opportunity to visit the city so often and truly experience what it had to offer.
Planning a trip to San Francisco? I'd be more than happy to recommend a few places, or pass the questions along to my sis!
