I have been in San Francisco for just a few days and the time has gone by so quickly. Today was my last full day to explore, and there were a few things that I wanted to get around and see. But at the same time, I had to be back at the hotel at a reasonable hour to get everything packed up for an early flight in the morning
To make the most of my time and save trying to figure out multiple public transport routes I decided to take the Hop On Hop Off Bus. The ticket was fairly reasonably priced and got me to almost all of the stops that I wanted to visit. However, the ones it did not go to were not far to walk.
The total time to complete the loop on the bus was around 2 hours. Like other cities, all of the must visits sites are somewhere along the circuit. While I had been to one or two already, they were good to see again. The route did get a slight alteration today due to a protest that was happening. However, the area that was missed is an area that I had walked yesterday so no big loss.
I have some pictures to share today, so let’s get into it.

The building below is adorned with the name Ghirardelli, which is a local chocolatier.
One of the famous San Francisco Street Cars, they do take on some rather impressive hills and make it up and down.

The house below looks nice and simple but can rent for up to $5,000 a week in holiday periods I am told.
The last of the setting sun on my last day in San Francisco. I have a feeling that it will not be my last visit to the city, though.
