You can take a round-trip to Coronado or choose between traveling north or south on a boat that has it all. Tickets costs 22$/adult and the tour lasts 1 hour. I did it over and over again because of the incredible sights you can see, really postcard-worthy pictures. Here's a sample so you can see what I mean. Thanks!
Seaport village is in a beautiful spot in a gorgeous City, and it has its quirks but overall this place feels a little on the cheesy side. The shops are cute, but everything comes with a price of course.
In January I went on a trip to San Diego with my sisters, the first day we went to La Jolla to a pretty place although it was very cold and I remember that we were anxious. We went walking and we found a place full of sealions of all sizes. It was a spectacular sight.
I just happened to bump into this place. From San Francisco to San Diego driving down the coast we stopped off in Monterey, a rather unique and lively town, especially downtown. I bought a shirt in the Bubba Gump Restaurant, the first restaurant opened since Forrest Gump was filmed. Now there are heeeeaaaps more throughout the United States.
I was driving all day from Los Angeles along the coastal road towards San Francisco and I kept looking out the window at the suburbs of Los Angeles. It's a bit of a monotonous landscape but maybe interesting if you're not used to it. I had wanted to discover beautiful places to photograph but my hope was lost by the end of the day. I stumbled through the dark of the night long before reaching my destination and without having encountered any spectacular setting. I saw a sign that said "Morro Bay" and decided to find a motel and rest. The darkness had invaded everything and I could barely catch a glimpse of the ocean. The smell of the sea and the song of the sea lions were the only signs of its existence.
Very tired and a bit sad, I went to bed. I had no idea what I would find the next day. I woke up very early before the sun rose, made coffee in the room and prepared my bag to continue to San Francisco. I walked through the door and the morning was still chilly, even in May. The sky was leaden, the first rays of light filtered through the clouds timidly and only then did I see the beauty of the place where I was. The town had a magical enchanting feel. It was located on a slope with the Pacific Ocean at the bottom and there was a giant rock on water on which you could see the beautiful beaches that were vast and deserted. These were accompanied by sea lions and seagulls and fishermen who were preparing to climb into their small boats. I walked towards the great monolith of stone and the sun broke through the clouds and its light shone on the big rock. The first surfers arrived early to the icy water of the Pacific. I took out my camera and captured that moment and I knew then that I was in one of the most beautiful places in America.
A few kilometers from San Diego is a great site: Point Loma. This is actually the end of the peninsula leading into San Diego Bay, and here you can enjoy a 360° view: the Naval Base, San Diego, the Pacific Ocean, and the neighborhood of La Jolla north of the city. It's best to go in the late afternoon to see the sunset, but check the closing time before you visit.
This is the best day trip to make from San Francisco by car. It takes about two hours, crossing the Golden Gate Bridge and then following the famous Highway 101 along the coast. There's so much you can find ... fabulous scenery, deer, sea lions, whale watching and Point Reyes Lighthouse on the coast of the Farallones. Stop for something to eat in Point Reyes, then return through Fairfax and the redwood forests. Unforgettable.
A fantastic bridge that connects the city of San Francisco with Oakland and it's even longer than the popular Golden Gate. Take photos from Rincon Park, a small park with a spectacular sculpture of a bow and arrow, located near the financial district of San Francisco.
