Sometimes you have a flexible schedule but maybe not enough time or money to take a real vacation, well that doesn’t mean you can’t feel like you’ve gotten away from it all for a bit. First stop the Ferry Building, you can also get a Ferry from Pier 41 but the Ferry Building is more convenient for most of downtown and is worth some time either before or after your trip. There’s Farmer’s Market Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday but even without there’s plenty of food. There are variations from more formal sit down like The Slanted Door (though pop-ins to the bar area work just as well) to Blue Bottle Coffee (I’m a recent convert to the decaf oat lattes) as well as specialty food spots plus a few nonfood items.
Easy, picturesque, and a nice break from the daily grind! What’s your favorite day trip?
