My Mini Guide To San Francisco

sanfran

The possibility of adventure in San Francisco is endless. We were only there for 4 days, one of which was spent walking the Bay To Breakers, so it was all about squeezing as much as we could in, which we definitely accomplished!

Here is my mini guide on great Gluten Free Eats, Sites To See & Things To Do!

Now this place is super touristy, but you just have to do it. The only way you should travel to Fisherman’s Wharf is by cable car. You might have to wait a few minutes, but it’s a San Francisco staple and the only one of it’s kind left in the world, which is pretty cool. If you can, try to be the two standing on the back with the conductor, it makes for great views!

Where To Eat: 

In-N-Out Burger  
Yes there are plenty of other options, but this is a California staple. And for us Gluten Free kind, the fact that you can get a fast food burger wrapped in lettuce is AH-MAZING. Get it to go and go by the water, or find some live street music to hang out by

Where To Go:

The Pier Shops
The Sea Lion Dock
Alcatraz (usually need to book tickets far in advanced)
Ghiradelli Square

What To Do:

Walk along the water, check out the aquarium, buy a kite to fly, go to the candy shop, get your touristy magnets & shot glasses, ride the merry-go-round

Just a short drive over the Golden Gate bridge or ferry ride across the bay. Sausalito is such a cute town by the water and is the perfect spot for a quaint afternoon with beautiful sites

Lappert’s Ice Cream
Park by the water
Shops in downtown

What To Do:

Just walking around San Francisco, taking in all the sites, art & people is so rewarding. My favorite day was when we really didn’t have a destination, just time to act as if we were residents spending an afternoon about the city. Shop in the financial district, browse through Chinatown-they’re so many choices!

Where To Eat:

Basil Thai
San Francisco is known for Thai food so we couldn’t leave without having some. Not being too familiar with Thai, they were very helpful, and our food turned out to be so amazing. This place was quaint, authentic & had great gluten free options

Salt House
For a classy dinner out with friends or your significant other, I highly suggest Salt House. We had wine, seafood, steaks, chicken-all unique and delicious. Once again the gluten free options were endless

Pizzeria Delfina
No they didn’t have gluten free pizza, but I did have a delicious chicken meal and we had a buffalo cheese appetizer that was to die for. All the ingredients were so fresh and it was a lovely little restaurant

Where To Go:

Chinatown
Twin Peaks
Lombard Street
Financial District- high fashion shops (The Valentino store was amazing)
For Tattoo’s: Seventh Son Tattoo

Things To Do:

Walk around checking out the cool real estate, go in local thrift stores, rent bikes, have a picnic in the park
