This morning we had to get up really early to get our flight from LA to San Francisco. We flew SouthWest for all our flights on Contiki and they were pretty good – it was a bit of a strange system, no assigned seating, so you just sat wherever you could on the plane. And you could also have two checked bags, which some people took advantage of later on in the tour.
As per usual, our first day in San Francisco was basically made up of a city tour. We drove across the Bay Bridge and stopped off at Pier 39.
We discovered some cool stores on Pier 39 though.. best being The Candy Baron and Chocolate Heaven (with the tagline ‘Greatest Chocolate Store in The World’). Barrels of candy and chocolate.. it was so good!
After we had finished our stop at Pier 39, it was off to the one and only Golden Gate Bridge. We got to drive across it, and then stopped at the lookout on the other side to take photos. It was super windy and pretty cold at the lookout, but the views of the city and bridge were pretty awesome.
