SF Weekend Itinerary for First Timers

fernweh195 | May 23, 2013 12:04 PM

We are visiting San Francisco just for the weekend and are looking to make the most out of our short stay! We are 20-something foodies and are looking for a mix of visiting the "must-see" tourist attractions and a bit of more local fare (neighborhood cafes, weekend festivals, etc.) I would appreciate any insight or changes you would make to the tentative plans below! What would be your ideal weekend as someone who is from the city? Thank you in advance!

-Fly in at 8:30pm
-Bourbon & Branch at 10:30pm
(this is close to where we are staying)

-Ride the cable car from the hotel to the Ferry building
-Breakfast at Ferry Building farmer's market
-Walk along the embarcadero, see Pier 39
-Explore Chinatown and visit Golden Gate Fortune Cookie factory
-Lunch (?) Would like authentic seafood but not sure where to go that isn't a tourist trap! Alternatively could go to Presidio Social Club
-Walk through Marina neighborhood along Chestnut Street
-Visit Palace of Fine Arts
-See Golden Gate Bridge
-Michael Mina at 8:30pm
-After dinner things to do (anything fun to do late night outside of going to bars? Any recommended cocktail bars? Bar Agricole?)

- 11:30am Brunch @ Tartine
- Walk through Mission neighborhood along Valencia street
- Walk through Haight Ashbury
- Golden Gate Park
- Places for fun snack/coffee/bakery nearby?
- Fly out at 7pm
