San Francisco Sightseeing Tours
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.
Alchemists used to say that they could transform lead into gold. Their claims may have been dubious, but we know a surefire way to transform the mundane into the extraordinary! Rent a San Francisco limousine from us, and treat your significant other to a limo ride down the lovely California coast. If you’re both tired of your routine and you could use a break to rejuvenate your lives, here is a proven recipe for success:
- Rent a San Francisco limousine
We have many different options for you, including stretch limos, hot tub limos, classic cars, antique Rolls-Royce limos and many more. We’re confident that you’ll find the perfect limo for the two of you from our huge fleet of luxury vehicles.
- Have us stock your favorite beverages
It’s hard to beat champagne for these getaways, but we will gladly stock and chill your favorite alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages for your lovely trip along the coast.
- Lay in some provisions
Fruits, cheeses, antipasti trays, chocolates and other finger foods seem to work best for idyllic afternoons like these. It’s usually a good idea to avoid Philly cheesesteaks, monster burritos and other ambitious (and messy) undertakings, but go with your instincts on this one.
- Arrange for a couple days off
Taking a couple weekdays off is a very good idea for these excursions. The whole point is to take a break from the everyday, right? Create your own weekend in the middle of the week with one day spent enjoying each other’s company in the back of your San Francisco limo and the other spent strolling around your favorite neighborhoods in our lovely city!
- Get ready to be happy
If it has been a while since you did something fun and spontaneous together and you have forgotten why you get up and go to work every morning, rent a limo from us to rediscover why the two of you fell in love in the first place!
Renting a San Francisco limousine and taking a day or two to ride down the coast is a very effective antidote to the blahs. If you need a prescription for this serious but easily treatable condition, call us today at 800-339-8936 to speak with one of our clinicians. It may not be covered by your health insurance, but it is very affordable and has an incredible success rate. Call us at NLS Limo today to find out why we have become the Bay Area’s premier limousine service!
If the name Pacific Heights evokes mental images in your head of an upscale, privileged San Francisco neighborhood with grand old homes, incredible views and old money, your assumptions are absolutely right. The first generation or two of Pacific Heights residents were captains of industry, successful retailers, politicians and other moneyed, well-to-do types at the top of the social order. Suffice it to say that Pacific Heights was the place to live in San Francisco if you had the means. This neighborhood provides some of the city’s best views of the Golden Gate Bridge and the Bay, and it is a must-visit destination for most of our city’s millions of visitors each year. This neighborhood was one of the first to have service from our city’s famous cable cars, and they continue to transport San Franciscans to this day.
