I've been to San Francisco a few times on business, but haven't spent too much time there doing touristy stuff.
Neither of us has been to the redwoods or anything else in Northern California.
We're thinking of spending 3 nights in San Francisco then, driving north to the Oregon border.
What are the must see places in San Francisco? What should we do while we're there? We're going to spend some time in China Town, but other than that, what should we do? We like museums, cool architecture, hikes, scenery, etc. (Normal tourist stuff.)
Any favorite restaurants? Any favorite places to visit? Any quaint and nice hotels you can recommend?
What about on the drive north? We want to see the redwoods. What else should we do and see? Where should we stay?
Thanks in advance.
