We stumbled onto this site by accident. No charge to enter or park! It was filled with locals and empty early afternoon when we were there. It was wonderful to sit at the waters edge, enjoy the kite surfers and boats, and enjoy the GG...More

Lovely area to go for a stroll/run, little sandy beach and nice views of the other side of the bay (Alcatraz/GG Bridge etc). Make the most of free things in the city as everything is so expensive!

Look at that view! Well-groomed trails of tiny pebbles. Big, wide, grassy fields....perfect for running. Dip your toe in the Bay if you dare.

This is a great, safer area of San Francisco to visit. The views of the Golden Gate Bridge, the San Francisco Bay and Alcatraz in the distance were breathtaking. It's a great place to go for a walk. There is also a really cool, really...More

Walked around Crissy Field looking at the birds and enjoying g the outdoors with our toddler. A little cold and windy but didn't put him off. We really enjoyed the walk and would return.

San Francisco must do! Great for exercising or just breathing in the San Francisco Bay air--the scene is amazing even on foggy, wet days! Wear comfy shoes--a true SF scene!

the beach is fairly small. and its usually pretty windy. but there are no life guards or rangers that i'm aware of...so a temporary 10 x10 ...my guess...probably OK.

Any assistance you could provide in reguards to either omitting certain things or a well plan strategy to see most of them would be greatly apprieciated.

Sequoia Kings Canyon is south of Yosemite not north of San Francisco. Mount Shasta is too far away to see in your 5 day visit if you also want to see Yosemite - based on your numerous inquiries of it here on TA.

Does This Itinerary Seem Sensible? (16 Replies)
Hi, We would really appreciate your thoughts on this itinerary for our 3½ day stay in San Francisco this August. Hopefully I haven’t over-planned and have come up with a logical route which can be done at a reasonable pace! We are staying at the Marina Motel on Lombard St and will have a car (although we intend to walk / use public transport most of the time). I have a bad foot so I can’t walk for hours on end!! Day 1 (Saturday) – Walk over to Crissy Field and along the bay trail...More

First of all, thanks for indicating the days of the week. That's helpful. On Saturday you can catch a bus directly from the Bridge to Union Square. Be sure you find the proper bus stop. I think it will be on the west side of the toll plaza for the inbound direction. The route is the 76X-Marin Headlands. Chinatown is only a few blocks from Union Square. You may have time to incorporate it on Saturday.

There is a 3 day itinerary in the top questions as well as info on why to not rent a car for the city part of your trip. Not Sure why your DH will need one at all -- except for a day to go to point Reyes and Muir woods
