San Francisco | The Little Big City

San Francisco is a pastel wonderland and New York meets LA kind of city. The blue waters, beautiful mountains, colourful victorian houses, and breathtaking monuments make it a must-go destination in North America. This city is the perfect place to spend a warm and dry weekend for those living in the cold and rainy Vancouver as it only takes two hours to fly there and similar to Vancouver, the airport is very close to the city. The best way to explore San Francisco is just to walk around and check out different neighbourhoods until you get to a cafe, bar, shop or a cool building that makes you wanna stop.

Here is my little guide to spend the perfect weekend in San Francisco:

1) Ferry Building Market

Nestled by the ocean, this market is filled with tiny shops, bars and cafes with stunning views of the Bay Bridge, the Treasure Island, and green mountains. This is the perfect place to start your day with an amazing coffee and some pastries while enjoying the sun. Then walk along the water to feel the breeze for half an hour and then take a cable car and head up. First make a stop at Chinatown and then at the Russian Hills.
