San Francisco, Yosemite, Napa, beach, redwoods

Jump to last reply

My family of four are flying into the San Fran area end of July for 7 nights( after spending a week in Las Vegas for a basketball tournament). We have 2 boys ( 21 and 16). I would love a suggested itinerary for the areas. Typically, my family enjoys lazing around at the beach for our vacations. I have warned all of them that is will be a different type of vacation. None of us are big city people, although we enjoy the city for a day or two. Everyone wants to do different things while in California. Both my husband and I have been to San Fran and Yosemite...years back. I want to spend a day in the wine country (Sonoma or napa), and do one family friendly wine tour. Our oldest son wants to see the large redwoods/sequoias. Our youngest son wants to spend the day at a beach...hoping to people watch and see all the beautiful California girls ( I,m sure my oldest son and husband will enjoy that too). And my husband wants to watch a baseball game at candlestick park...which we already have scheduled for the day we fly in. We fly in on a Tuesday, and fly out the following Tuesday. Currently, my plan is to spend the day in the city after we fly in on Wednesday. I would only like to stay one day in the city. And if we have time at the end of our trip, we could do one more day. I would really appreciate any detailed information/itinerary you could provide.

I.ve been doing a ton of reading on things to see in the city. This is what I came up with. Please advise if this is a good day to get a taste of San Fran,
Wake up early and hit fishermans wharf
Walk to coit tower and then walk down telegraph hill
Take trolly to Castro street/haight ash bury
Stroll golden gate park.

I was also suggested to take the on and off tour bus.
One more idea...wanted to plan a white water rafting trip, but heard that California is in drought. Any suggestions for adding this into the itinerary.
