You should go back for a fried chicken sandwich - worth waiting in a line around the block. No tables, just ironing boards that function as a counter for devouring this calorie-worthy sandwich. Hold the jalapeños for the kiddos!

The top of the tower at the DeYoung museum – it’s free (you don’t have to buy admission to go) and it has the most awesome view of the Golden Gate Bridge and downtown San Francisco. Plus, it’s right across from the Academy of Sciences (fun for the little ones, but long lines!).
