With Parents: San Francisco with the Folks

With Parents: San Francisco with the Folks

When you have parents with you, you’ll probably also have both a car and a slightly bigger budget. Here are a few suggestions for exploring San Francisco with your parents:

  • Go to North Beach for an italian dinner followed by Beach Blanket Babylon
  • Spend the day at the Legion of Honor viewing fine art, Rodin sculpture and porcelain. Picnic at Land’s End
  • See Coit Tower and track down the wild parrots of Telegraph Hill
  • Drive up to Twin Peaks for an amazing view of the city, especially on a clear day
  • Brunch at Park Chalet, especially on a foggy day, followed by a walk around Sutro Park.
  • Go to the free Opera in the Park on September 13
  • Visit Gump’s and drool over china patterns
  • Drive to Sausalito to see the view, browse boats by kayak and have lunch at Le Garage.
  • Taste everything (cheese, wine, chocolate, bread, caviar, mushrooms, coffee, oysters, etc) at the Ferry Building

    Emily–these posts are right on the money! I have a vacation coming up next week, and due to our budget, we're having a staycation. I'm doing the itinerary now of things-I've-wanted-to-do-in-the-city-but-never-did-or-got-around-to to perk things up a bit and you've provided some good inspiration. I'm a SF native but there is still a few things that I haven't done!

    I don't think it is possible to run out of things to do here in the city. Have a great staycation!
