Help with a SF itinerary in Oct, please

Jump to last reply

My best friend, a business friend and I arrive in San Francisco on Thursday afternoon, Oct. 7th. Two of us have been there before but my BF has not. (We also are meeting my business partners' friend from Seattle.) T (my business partner) and I have both been there before but my BF has not. We have done lots of research on this board and through travel books but would appreciate it if you would please critique our plans and give us the wisdom of your experience. We are staying at Harbour Court Hotel on the Embarcadero. We arrive on Thursday and leave Tuesday morning with the only "set in stone" as a business meeting in Oakland on Monday at 10:00 a.m. Our interests are seeing as much of the city as possible, eating great food and drinking great wine (without breaking our bank) and appreciating what makes the area/city unique.

Any suggestions for that Thursday evening? Dinner at Slanted Door, maybe? Have to be back at hotel to meet Seattle friend that night.

We plan on renting a car on Friday to make a trip to the Russian River valley with a redwoods visit squeezed in. Any suggestions on must see wineries? Can we squeeze in a beach walk on this day along with the redwoods? Maybe a picnic at some point? We chose this day because Saturday will be packed in the valley and Sunday is a busy day for traffic coming back into the city. Agree with that choice?

Saturday, I thought we would visit the Ferry Building farmers market before catching a Gray Line City Tour. That afternoon, we thought we would maybe do a walking tour of Chinatown (better on Sunday morning?).

After that, the slate is clean. We know we want to spend time on Fishermans Wharf, just enjoying the people watching. Alcatraz is out- none of us have any interest in that but a bay cruise might be cool. Would love to walk across the Golden Gate Bridge again. Would like to visit SOMA just because I live in Arkansas and believe it or not, we don't have modern art museums here! :) We do want to blow the budget one night for dinner, hopefully on Monday night when my boss is there to pay. Suggestions for that?

Please help us! We appreciate it!
