Five full days San Francisco – how to split up the stuff I want to do?

Jump to last reply

I will have five full days in San Francisco (Mon-Fri) in mid March. I’ll be staying in Lafayette and taking BART in/out approximately 9-6 each day (flexible).

I’ve done a ton of research (thank you Stu, and others) and know WHAT I want to see, question is how to arrange it.

Photography is a major interest so I know some places are better seen in the morning vs afternoon – but a lot of these I don’t which time of day is best (or if it matters). Also would like to have a couple of ‘rainy day’ plans.

I’ve mapped it so I know how far it is from place to place but of course the map doesn’t show the hills so I really don’t know how long to allow for some of these walks. I normally average at least 8 miles walking per day on trips – but I gather 8 miles in NY or Paris is not the same as 8 miles in SF. I will get a week long transportation pass.

Palace of Fine Arts, Walk along water to GG Bridge (in a.m.)
Telegraph Hill – Coit Tower, Greenwich/Filbert Steps
Vallejo Steps/Macondray Lane
Washington Square/St Peter & Paul Church
SF Art Institute
Fisherman’s Wharf
Columbus Ave/City Lights Books, etc. walk
Golden Gate Park/ Conservatory of Flowers/Stow Lake
Lafayette Park/ Haas Lilienthal, etc. walk
Alamo Square (in P.M.)
Haight Ashbury walk
Civic Center
Mission Dolores and murals in the area
Presidio (area west of bridge) (in P.M.)
Ferry ride
Cal Academy of Science
Aquarium
De Young/Legion of Honor (have to be same day)
Embarcadero Center/Crocker Galleria/Westfield Center

So I’d love advice how to split things up. Also anything else to add? Thanks
