April 15- 18, 2016,

Weather: Spring, 17-22 C.

Hotel: The Mosser.

pros: very good location, very accessible to cable car, bus and train stations, and to shopping and dining areas. room is carpeted, reasonable size. bed is good.
cons: we couldn’t find the heater, and no complimentary water.
Estimate cost for 2 pax excluding airfare: 1000 usd
Day 1: Commute via cable car and buses (by the guide of googlemap)
>Lombard – the world’s most crooked street. we took a cable car from Powell St. and then walked uphill. comfortable shoes got handy.

We then went near Yosemite national park to stay overnight so there’s more time in the next day to explore the park. It’s about 3 hours drive from SFO. (Luckily, we have friends who have car and who’ll also go to Yosemite.)
Day 2: Yosemite National Park – a world heritage site known for granite cliffs, waterfalls, streams, sequoias, glaciers and valleys.

Day 3: the Iconic Golden Gate Bridge (we took a bus from the hotel to Fort point, then a friend drove us to Battery Spencer)
from Fort Point. with the view of the bay around it, cold breeze & low flying seagulls, it’s truly a sight to see 🙂

from Battery Spencer. It’s cold and a bit tiring to walk uphill but worth it because this provides panoramic view with the downtown as the background.
