We had the opportunity to fly out to San Francisco for a quick Labor Day weekend getaway. Here are some of the highlights from our trip.
We originally saw Go Cars when we were in Barcelona, but never had the chance to do it while we were there. My brother rented a Go Car in San Francisco and recommended that we check it out too. It seemed like a good idea since we would be able to see most of San Francisco’s “must see” places. We decided to rent the car for 3 hours in order to maximize time. Our route started at Union Square, followed by the AT&T Park, the Ferry Building, Fishermen’s Wharf, Golden Gate Park, Ocean Beach and Alamo Square. Even though I was scared for most of the 3 hours, I would recommend this to people. The car comes with a GPS /guide. The guide was pretty entertaining and the GPS was accurate for the most part. The car isn’t very powerful, so it was surprising that we made it up San Francisco’s infamous hills.
At one point our battery died, but lucky for us there was a spare battery in the back and we were able to quickly get back onto the road. The car’s motor was so loud, so it was difficult to hear the GPS at times. My biggest complaint is that it was difficult to see all the sites and enjoy them in the 3 hours they provide.
Fishermen’s Wharf is definitely a tourist spot, but they had alot of cool things to offer. We had to visit Ghirardelli Square and get ourself an ice cream sundae. Wes was also able to get his hands on his first In-N-Out burger here. We stumbled upon the San Francisco’s Historic Vessel Museum. Wes had a blast checking out the old ships.
It was the biggest nightmare booking a last minute tour to the wine country, especially during a holiday weekend! But we were determined to make it out there and thanks to Wes we were able to get ourselves on a tour. The wineries on Long Island cannot compare to wine country in California. We were surrounded by miles and miles of beautiful vineyards. I can’t remember the name, but the last vineyard that we visited was the best. The combination of on point wine, aweseome outdoor furniture and amazing weather made for the perfect way to end the day.
We didn’t get much time to explore the Muir Woods, but it was nice to get out of the city and breathe in some fresh air.
Big trees, little us.
