Tilden hotel 🛏

A short walk away from the "centre" of San Francisco, the Tilden used to be a B&B until it's refurbishment into a hotel. It still has it's old time features like a claw foot bath, rickety elevator and snug rooms, but that's the beautiful charm of the place. 345 Taylor Street

Cheesecake Factory 🍴

Not the most upmarket place but boy could you get a feed. The first time we visited it was lunchtime so we felt silly ordering cake. We ordered a couple of small dishes which were very generous sizes which filled us up too much to have cake. Not all was lost as they also do take-away cakes. Union Square

Alcatraz 📷

The crumbling architecture, the old jailbreak stories and the incredible views are great reasons to head to Alcatraz. You're free to roam the island at explore at your own pace just remember a jacket because once the winds pick up, it gets quite cool.

Ghirardelli 🍴🍦

The original chocolate factory is still up and running and putting warm chocolaty smiles on everyone- me included. These days it's also a marketplace and eatery hub to cater all visitors. 900 North Point

To do  🚎

The best way to see the city is jump on a tram, or 10! They weave in an out of every street you'd want to see and it's super easy to jump on and off. Just make sure you hold on with the hills!

San Francisco is the only city I can think of that can survive all the things you people are doing to it and still look beautiful.
