SAN FRANCISCO CITY: THINGS TO DO. #1. Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco Bay. The iconic Golden Gate Bridge is easily one of the most instantly recognizable bridges in the world. It is certainly the most adored bridge in California, giving it the top slot on our list of 25 Things to do and see in San Francisco. This bright red suspended bridge can generally be walked across in under an hour.
A visit to California wouldn’t be complete without a road trip on the Pacific Coast Highway. This iconic road continues along most of the California coast and can be enjoyed at any pace… whether it’s over the course of 1 day or 2 weeks. For the perfect “sampler platter” of sights and activities along this scenic drive, I recommend planning 3 days from Los Angeles to San Francisco. Here are my suggestions for an unforgettable California coast road trip!
