What I Want To Do Weekends, Part 2: San Francisco


Welcome to the second What I Want To Do Weekends weekend. Moving right along from USA in general to the first city on Missy's World Tour. (Actually, the second. Auckland is the first, but I don't think my to-do list for there consists of anything apart from a) get off plane b) pee c) get on BlogHer-bound plane.)


I want to go on the cable cars like the trolley people in The Princess Diaries.

I want to see if the Golden Gate Bridge really is golden, and if Golden Gate Park really is a park. (Kidding. Kinda.)

I want to visit the Haight-Ashbury, Chinatown, and Fisherman's Wharf (including Boudin Bakery, Pier 39, Ghirardelli’s Chocolate, Ghirardelli’s sign, cable car turnaround).

I also want to see The Crookedest Street in the World (between Hyde and Leavenworth) and The Steepest Streets (22nd Street, Filbert Street), Nob Hill, and The Manor from Charmed.

I feel like I should see Alcatraz, but I'm not sure why. Hopefully someone can explain the significance/excitement to me.

Things To NOT Do:


What do you think? What did I miss? What can I skip? What are you looking forward to doing in San Francisco? See you soon!!!


  1. 50 days???

    i am also voting for no earthquakes while we're there.

    we need to set up another chat session, soonish.
    just to work out the rest of the kinks.

  2. I want to go to Chinatown too! And see the many days are you staying?


  3. I get there the Tuesday before BlogHer and leave the Sunday night. Hopefully that'll be enough time to see everything.

  4. Great SF to-do list! I lived in the Bay Area for 5 years and it's one of the world's most amazing cities.

    See you there!! I'll know you by your cute shoes.

    cable cars. Check.
    golden gate is actually a rust red color but amazing in the sunset.
    Golden gate Park is our Central Park (west coast style)
    Boudin's..... yummy! it's the breadbowels I tellyou.
    I am not sure what charmed manor is. sorry.

    as for the earthquakes... I have a kit, evacuation route and safety plans. Chill out dude!

  6. I lived in SF for ten years and NEVER rode a cable car, can you believe it?
    Don't forget to go to the Savoy Tivoli in North Beach. I worked there for years and it is fun place to hang out and have a drink. Also, breakfast a Dottie's.
    Sorry I can't meet you there, I had to cancel my BLogher trip because I am moving that weekend--very sad on so many levels!
    Thanks for visiting my blog.

  7. jessica: yay! glad you approve. see you soon!

    fcm: you're the best. that is all.

    suz: ten years and no cable cars? i will be devastated if i miss out on that one. yes, someone else suggested dottie's to me. that's now on the list. wish you were going.
