24-Hours in San Francisco

Posted July 14, 2017 in San Francisco, healthy travel, California travel and 3 more


The fiancé and I recently returned from an epic trip to California to hike in Yosemite National Park. 

We flew in and out of San Francisco, and while we didn't spend a lot of time there, we did spend enough time to explore the city a tiny bit.

We were in San Francisco for a little over 24 hours split between two days with Yosemite in the middle. 

It was our first time in San Francisco, so we had a long list of things we wanted to do there. We didn't try to cram everything in because we didn't want the trip to feel too hectic. 

We may have only seen a small part of the city, but we definitely fell in love with the hilly streets, colorful row houses, views of the Golden Gate Bridge and afternoon fog. 

Here's a recap of our short trip to San Francisco...

A Weekend in Yosemite National Park

While it would be easy to spend more time in Yosemite National Park, you can see a lot in just two days! I spent a weekend in Yosemite National Park, and I'm sharing all the adventures from my trip.


In June, the fiancé and I met my cousin, Kristi, and her husband, Avery, in San Francisco, and the four of us drove to Yosemite National Park for a weekend of adventure. 

You can read about our time in San Francisco here.

Kristi and Avery had been planning on going to Yosemite for Avery's 30th birthday. They had most of the trip planned when I mentioned that Yosemite was on our bucket list, and they invited us to come along. We bought our plane tickets four weeks before we left!

It ended up being such an amazing trip, and we were so grateful for Kristi and Avery for doing so much planning and coordinating. 

I took so many photos on this trip because Yosemite is absolutely breathtaking. So this post is photo heavy!
