San Francisco Sightseeing Tours
Every single day, our multi-talented moms are lovingly tasked with keeping their kiddos happy and healthy…a job they undoubtedly took on head-first with arms & hearts wide open. However, most of our mothers could not have foreseen the multitude of challenges, changes, and complications they would face as the coronavirus outbreak swept the world last year. Here at Nationwide Limousine Service, we firmly believe that our heroic and steadfast mamas have definitely earned themselves a little rest and relaxation this Mother’s Day, which is why we’ve taken some time to put together our most popular sightseeing tours and day trips so you can guarantee that mom gets the gift she wholeheartedly deserves.
As the last leaves fall from their almost-barren branches and the warm, comforting summer breeze of the Bay Area quickly transitions into that cool and crisp autumn weather that we know and love so well, we start to shift our attention towards the 2020 holiday season. Let’s be honest, this year has been less than stellar, to say the least, and with many San Francisco residents feeling the continued effects of lockdown fatigue, we’d thought it would be a perfect time to feature a selection of holiday sightseeing tours & trips so you can focus on the things that truly matter: your friends and family.
Brush off those coronavirus blues with a Bay Area sightseeing tour from Nationwide Limousine Service! For months on end, many San Francisco residents have been stuck inside their homes due to the global coronavirus pandemic. Life as we knew it came to a screeching halt back in early March and many celebrations were temporarily put on hold as cities across the country closed down in order to keep their citizens safe. And even though we’re still dealing with this deadly disease, it doesn’t mean that we should cancel our anniversaries, birthdays, and other small celebrations of life that many people so desperately need right now. Here at NLS Limo, we’ve put together an exciting list of getaways that are guaranteed to put a smile on that special someone’s face while staying safe at the same time.
Twenty-seven miles west of San Francisco lies the Farallones National Marine Sanctuary – one of the world’s most unique ecosystems teeming with diverse marine life. While the rocky islands themselves are somewhat mysterious (closed to the public and inhabited only by scientists and researchers from Point Blue Conservation Science and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service), there are several tour and charter vessels that travel out to these islands nearly everyday year round for one very exciting purpose – to view a wide array of wildlife and most importantly, spot a breaching whale.
If you’ve only lived in the Bay Area for a decade or two, you might take the Sea Lions at Pier 39 for granted. This year, San Francisco will celebrate the lions 26th anniversary! Not long after the devastating earthquake of 1989, these beautiful creatures started dropping by the Fisherman’s Wharf. Today they are considered icons of the West Coast.
Whether you are visiting San Francisco for only a short time, or you’re a native seeking a tranquil retreat from the city, Yosemite National Park and Muir Woods are two of the most popular attractions in the Bay Area. Normally, Yosemite National Park charges $20 per car for entry, and Muir Woods charges $7 for entry and additionally for parking in some areas.
Are you looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of the urban holiday season, vehicle, and pedestrian traffic? While it’s a season of merriment, the 24/7 city-esque nature of it all can become taxing even to the most extroverted Bay Area residents. One of our favorite getaways is the 243-acre Pescadero Marsh Natural Preserve. This preserve is located on the Pescadero State Beach. From riparian woods to tidal estuary, a number of habitats serve as homes to gorgeous wildlife. From breathtaking cliffs to serene sandy areas, the Pescadero Marsh Natural Preserve makes for a lovely daytrip.
Are you looking to Lindy Hop in the Bay Area? Whether you are a visiting dancer or a San Francisco resident wanting to learn how to Charleston, boogie back, or shorty George, join the action – there’s free swing dancing at Golden Gate Park every Sunday from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m.
Standing at the summit of Mount Tamalpais, you’ll enjoy a panoramic view of the highway below, and a bird’s eye view of the Mill Valley, the ocean, and the forests beneath. Exercise enthusiasts will especially love this view, as you have to hike or bike your way to the top.
San Francisco may not be the winter wonderland of the Twin Cities or Anchorage Alaska, and there may be more fog than snow covering the ground, but the city still does a fantastic job of making winter unique from the other three seasons of the year: events around the city become more introspective, and, in many cases, reflective. There will be less of the festival atmosphere of spring and summer, less of the frivolity of those seasons, and more deliberateness, a quality that can bring a depth to action, and forge memories that will last forever. So, consider some of the following options while you’re putting on your jacket and heading out for a night — or an afternoon — on the town.
