• Morning
      • Crissy Field

      • Start with a run so you'll feel less guilt about all of the great food and wine you'll consume later.
      • Palace of Fine Arts

      • The only exhibit remaining from the 1915 Panama-Pacific Exposition. Do a loop of this Beaux-Arts architecture on the back portion of your out and back run. Look for the swans in the pond.
      • Brenda's French Soul Food

      • Crawfish beignets. A beignet sampler. So much filling, heavy, yummy food that you can eat the breakfast leftovers for lunch.
      • Exclusive City Hall Tour
        • from
        • $616

      • Not far from Brenda's this building is pretty spectacular. Take some time to admire the rotunda.
    • Afternoon
      • California Academy of Sciences

      • Living roof, aquarium, rain forest! Make sure to catch one of the penguin feedings if you love penguins as much as I do.
      • Japanese Tea Garden

      • Sure it's a bit touristy but there is something peaceful about the Japanese Tea Garden that transports you.
    • Evening
      • Americano Restaurant & Bar

      • Right across from the Ferry building. Enjoy the outdoors, a wine and the swanky setting before heading off to Alcatraz.
    • Night
      • Alcatraz Island

      • Night tour of Alcatraz. Depending on the time of year you can see great sunsets with panoramic views of the Bay or eery fog fit for a prison where Capone lived. The only thing which better is a swim from the island to San Francisco (with boat support of course!)
      • Under The Bay Bridge

      • Watch the Bay Bridge light show from the ferry building.
      • kokkari

      • One of the best places for quality lamb in San Francisco. Plenty of amazing other dishes as well.
      • I would stay at: cavallo point

      • Since it's my perfect day I'd splurge and stay in the Marin Headlands. Gorgeous views of San Francisco. Good food and plenty of hiking/running/biking trails right outside your door. Dress for chilly evenings/mornings.
