San Francisco is an absolute gem in the United States, it is so different from the east coast that it almost feels like being in another country.

To really admire the city and get a good panoramic view drive to the top of Hawk Hill on the northern side of the Golden Gate bridge.

I went for a bike ride along Fisherman’s Wharf with my long lost friend Serge, who I just to jam with in Tokyo back in 2007. We had dinner at the Eagle Cafe at Pier 39 and ordered San Francisco’s most famous soup: Lobster Bisque, truly unbeatable!

No trip to San Francisco is complete without dropping by the Painted Ladies at Alamo Square park which used to be part of the intro of the Fullhouse TV series.

One of our funniest finds was this Yoda Fountain next to the Lucasfilm studios, a true destination for any Star Wars nerd.

I truly believe that the best way to explore San Francisco is to visit most attractions by bicycle, it can be quite challenging at times, due to the steep streets, but it will be well worth once you go down Lombard Street, the crooked street in the world!

Another interesting spot was the wooden Burning Man temple at Patricia’s Green park in the center of the city which was covered in lots of writing, love declarations and autographs.

Surprisingly, I found this Dutch windmill at the most western tip of Golden Gate park surrounded by lots of tulips.

The weather in San Francisco can be hit-or-miss, which truly sucks if you want to get great outdoor photos at all its scenic destinations, so do have some indoor events planned as an alternative.

I highly recommend: Musee Mecanique, Mirror Maze, Fisherman Wharf’s fish market, Eagle Cafe, Alcatraz and Exploratorium for all your indoor activities.
