While on my trek through California, I didn’t spend much time in San Francisco (only a few days during Pride weekend) but I did have a great time.  The people, the sites and of course the food was just fascinating!

During my time there I visited the Golden Gate Bridge on a GoCar tour, jumped on (and off) a trolley, ate some fresh seafood at the Fisherman’s Wharf and even drove down the world famous Lombard Street.  Take a look at Part 1 of this photo essay as I try to capture a few of the moments to give you a good idea at what the experience was like.

What’s a photo essay of San Francisco without the Golden Gate Bridge?


My favorite part of San Francisco is hard to pick out but if I were to choose one thing it would be just roaming around the Fisherman’s Wharf.  I’m always a sucker for seafood and they had it about as fresh as it comes…if you ever go, try out the fresh clam chowder served in a bread bowl soup…delish!  Part 2 of this photo essay is coming out over the next few days so stay tuned!

Have you ever explored this part of California and rode a San Francisco trollie?
