So my friend and I acted like tourists a few weeks ago. One benefit of this pandemic is that there are fewer tourists visiting San Francisco.
Golden Gate Bridge
My friend and I regretted not going to the Golden Gate Bridge Protest because we could have been part of history. That protest is definitely going into the history books. Although we weren’t able to be part of a historical event, we still managed to visit the Golden Gate Bridge a few days later and had the opportunity to walk on the bridge. It was a beautiful day to get some exercise in.
One ironic thing about this adventure was that my friend and I talked about doing it a year ago. It was included in a list of things we wanted to do in San Francisco. And who knew that a year later, we would actually do it. It was an accomplishment for us.
Palace of Fine Arts
We also were able to have a picnic at the Palace of Fine Arts where we ate the lunches we ordered from Sunday Gather. Luckily, there weren’t a lot of people so we were free to walk around after eating lunch.
The last tourist spot we visited was Lombard Street. I visited this place back during my undergrad and my friends drove through it. This time around my friend and I drove through it and we took a picture of the street too.
We accomplished a lot in just one day. San Francisco is usually filled with tourists around this time during summer. Yet since COVID happened, there aren’t many tourists which means less crowds and more time to enjoy the scenary without being annoyed.
Note: Yes, we took our face coverings off to take these pictures. We got to look cute. However, here is a public reminder to wear face coverings when around people and maintain a six feet distance!
