      • Start your day at the far western edge of the city with a morning stroll along Ocean Beach.
      • Mechanics' Institute

      • Ferry building

      • The San Francisco Ferry Building is a showcase for the area’s great local food. Come for the markets on Tuesdays, Thursdays, or Saturdays, and get lunch at one of the food stalls, like Hapa Ramen.
    • Afternoon
      • Hayes Valley

      • For unique boutiques and the best shoe stores in the city, Hayes Valley can’t be beat. Get coffee at the Blue Bottle on Linden Street.
      • Fort Point National Historic Site

      • You’ve seen the Golden Gate Bridge from every angle except this one, at Fort Point.
    • Evening
      • State Bird Provisions

      • State Bird Provisions is a justifiably lauded restaurant in the Fillmore district. The sophisticated, delicious fare comes around on trolleys, dim sum–style.
