Spring is in full swing here in the Bay Area, which means it’s the perfect time to be a tourist in your own backyard with a San Francisco sightseeing tour from Nationwide Limousine Service. Whether it’s visiting the sunbathing sea lions at Fisherman’s Wharf, grabbing a bite to eat in Chinatown, or enjoying the fresh salty breeze from the Pacific Ocean as you cruise along California’s iconic Highway 1 – NLS Limo has an excellent selection of exciting springtime sightseeing tours and day trips that will surely bring some smiles to your family and friends.
Every year, the city of San Francisco joyously celebrates St. Patrick’s Day with the type of fantastic fanfare that we’ve come to know, love, and embrace here in the Bay Area. Brilliant colorful parades filled with bagpipers and cadence drummers, faithful parishioners attend powerful and uplifting church sermons, and large crowds of revelers line the streets to simply enjoy the holiday and their Irish heritage.
One of the best things about living in the Bay Area is that when our winter season rolls around, it’s usually more of a mild inconvenience, with slight temperature drops being the biggest problem. We don’t have to deal with the constant headaches of snow, and we certainly aren’t tasked with shoveling or salting like some of our friends around the rest of the country. In fact, most of us are completely comfortable with just grabbing our favorite hooded sweatshirt or light jacket and heading out the door. That being said, in just a few short weeks, the warm Bay Area breeze will be blowing through the air, the sun will be shining, the birds will be chirping, and it will be the perfect time to experience the Springtime sights & sounds of San Francisco!
San Francisco is a town full of iconic locations that everybody knows of. You pay a bunch of money to go on a bog standard tour of the city that may get you some nice photos, but almost no actual knowledge of the city and it’s history. If you’re looking for deep insight and lore, you might want to check out San Francisco City Guides. They provide walking tours of the city that may show you something the other companies can’t provide you.
In 2016 there will be a new face to modern art in San Francisco – yet it will feel so familiar at the same time. In the midst of a complete transformation, the new San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) is ready to pave the way for the city’s renewed arts and culture scene. While it doesn’t officially open until May 14, 2016, here are a few reasons to mark your calendars and start planning a trip to San Francisco.
With more restaurants per capita than anywhere else in America, finding the perfect place to eat in San Francisco is a challenge, to say the least. It’s especially overwhelming for tourists who may be visiting the city for the first time, or even the fifth time. When I first experienced this challenge for myself, I turned where I always turn to when I need help – my smartphone. There truly is an app for everything, even finding the perfect place to eat in America’s largest food capital. We’re leaving out the big guys like Yelp, OpenTable, and Foursquare on this one – but that’s not to say reviews on these sites aren’t helpful.
With so many bars in San Francisco to choose from, it’s easy to spend upwards of an hour reading reviews and doing research just figure out where a good spot to grab a drink is. That’s why we put together this handy list, to help any kind of drinker figure out which bar is the right one for them in the Golden Gate City.
San Francisco is a city made for luxury transportation. How many other urban destinations have something like the 49-Mile Scenic Tour? A tradition since 1938, starting and ending at City Hall, this route showcases a plethora of Northern California gems including:
Classic car enthusiasts from California and across the country have bought their tickets and booked hotel reservations for one of the biggest events of the year. From Nov. 15 through Nov. 17, the eyes (and checkbooks) of the automotive cognoscenti will turn to the Anaheim Convention Center, where more than 800 classic cars, hot rods, muscle cars and other automotive wonders will go on the auction block. The auction is being held by Mecum Auction Inc., which expects to sell many millions of dollars worth of steel, chrome and rubber before the gavel falls for the last time on this year’s auction.
Admission is $15, and the gates open at 8 a.m. each day, but prospective buyers will want to have plenty of cash reserves to bid on such beauties as these:
- Tom McMullen’s 1932 Ford Deuce roadster, which appeared on the covers of Hot Rod, Street Rodder and Popular Hot Rod magazines, complete with paint job designed by legendary hot rod designer “Big Daddy” Ed Roth
