The next day was an early start. We got the Muni 1 Day Passport which allowed us unlimited travel on all buses, rail and cable cars. We firstly went to see the beautiful City Hall. After walking the grounds we caught a bus up to Lombard Street. As the buses didn't go right up to the top of the hill where the crookedest street in the world part starts, we had to walk up two steep blocks uphill! It was a must do San Francisco experience though. We walked down Lombard Street and caught the cable car down to Chinatown. After Chinatown we walked to Union Square where we enjoyed lunch at the Cheesecake Factory before setting sail again, this time to Golden Gate Bridge. The clear blue skies had has fooled, because as soon as we got to the Bridge the weather changed drastically. It was extremely foggy and windy at the Bridge and we didn't get a good view of even the Bridge! We didn't realise how foggy it really got in San Francisco! Unfortunately we learnt the hard way! We then made the long bus ride back towards the city, with a brief stop in Alamo Square - a historic row of Victoria style homes that San Francisco is famous for. We managed to rest a bit before heading out to an amazing Mexican restaurant called Colibri Mexican Restaurant, for dinner with Carly, Jeff and Amy.
The last day in San Francisco was a relaxing one spent shopping and walking around the city. We caught the BART to the airport, which was a good way to travel there.
