San Francisco in 2 Days - trying to organize my thoughts

Jump to last reply

So some of you may remember from my last post that I was planning one day in San Francisco, one day on a wine tour, and 3 plus days based in Carmel.
I then thought I would skip the wine tour and do the coast for 4 days. However I started to look at San Francisco and have decided (for now at least) that we need 2 days in the city. My husband hasn't weighed in yet ,as he has been away, but he is usually happy to have his days planned. It's our first trip without the kids in a long time.
Here is what I would like to do in San Francisco .
The Ferry Building. I love food stores
Walking across the Golden Gate Bridge
A cable car ride
Exploring scenic neighbourhoods- maybe one of the stairway walks Stu Dudley mentioned.
North beach
Coit tower
Should we do Alcatrez? I'm really on the fence.
We love to just pop into places for casual fresh food but enjoy reasonably priced dinners, with some California wine.
We are great walkers but I have a tendency to set a frantic ,see it all pace ,that my husband sometimes finds too much. I think the coast part of the trip will be more relaxed though.
Am I missing any real must sees? Can you help me turn this into a itinerary that makes sense.
Thank You
