San Francisco for Memorial Weekend

Hey guys! I will be going on a road trip to San Francisco this upcoming weekend for Memorial Day. I have been to San Francisco once and was able to visit some really cool spots. This time I have a whole list of exciting new destinations. I will be creating a list soon on another post to share all these unique spots.

One thing to know about driving up north from Los Angeles, is it will be a good six to seven hour drive down interstate five. I’ve heard of the other way to drive, which is taking the California route 1, but never had the chance to take that route. It’s a scenic trip voted one of the best routes by Best American Road Trips by National Geographic. 

First time I took a road trip to San Fran was in March 2016. The weather was crazy, heavy showers and gloomy skies. The weather was no match for us and we continued to explore San Fran’s historical landmarks starting with:

Lombard Street
