San Francisco In A Day: A Solo Mother’s Relaxed AdventureS

What does a mother do when they find themselves alone in San Francisco for a day and a night? No bags stuffed with supplies for a family of four. No kids complaining. No trips to the playground or Children’s Museums necessary. No running around trying to please everyone. 

San Francisco Chinatown

Fueled up, I walked through the gates of Chinatown, soaking up the smells and sounds and feeling a little unnerved at just how quiet this normally bustling largest Chinatown outside of Asia was. 

Coit Tower: An amazing San Francisco attraction

Coit Tower is a 210-foot white, fluted tower in the Telegraph Hill neighborhood of San Francisco. It’s surrounded by Pioneer Park, which was established in 1876 on the former site of the telegraph station. 

Washington Square

Washington Square Park is one of the three oldest parks in San Francisco and is the place to come on a sunny day with your coffee and pastries. 

North Beach

You won’t find sandy shores here (but in the 1800s there was!), but you will find endless options for pizza, pasta, and gelato. North Beach is the Italian neighborhood of San Francisco. 

Lunch at Chubby Noodle

Nestled between all these Italian cafes in North Beach was the Chubby Noodle, which is where if found myself eating!
