San Francisco trip ideas -what must to see in SF / and south of SF in 1 wk

Jump to last reply

Hi. I am a first time traveler to San Francisco with my "man"friend (we are in our 50s but are very young at heart) and am looking for suggestions. We will be getting into SF on Friday 9/2/11 (labor day w/e) and will be staying at the Hotel Carlton, near Union Square through Monday morning. We thought we would do the Alcatraz tour Friday evening, though still have to figure out the transporation part. The next day we were thinking of taking the red / white or blue/white tours or some other tour maybe to i.e., Muir woods/ Sausilito, bay cruise. Definitely want to see Chinatown, Fisherman's Wharf, Pier 39, and of course, the golden gate bridge. Tour suggestions?

Monday, 9/5/11 we will be taking a shuttle from the hotel to the SF airport where we will pick up a rental car and plan to drive south down Highway 1 (I think it's called) with no specific plans. We have 4 days to cruise around before we return to SF airport on Friday. I have been reading a lot about Carmel, Monterey, Big Sur, etc and they all sound nice, but one important thing we want to do is see other redwood trees besides Muir Woods which I understand is quite touristy. We seek peace, relaxation, natural beauty, etc. not the night life so much. I thought about the Hearst castle but have been reading that most feel it is not that big a deal so our plans are wide open. Any suggestions re: SF / south area places to see / stay will be greatly appreciated. THANK YOU!!
