“Explore” The Weekend Package
For those who want to get out and really enjoy the adventures of San Francisco, the Hyatt at Fisherman’s Wharf features the “Explore Local Discovery” Package, which includes two cable car passes for unlimited use. Whether it’s “climbing halfway to the stars” or just getting from one place to another, the cable cars are not only the city’s most iconic landmark, but a charming and environmentally friendly means of transportation. And, to complement the special room package, the Hyatt at Fisherman’s Wharf has bundled theweekend together with a recommended itinerary of options, as follows:
1. Start the weekend by checking into the hotel in the afternoon, then take a dip in the outdoor pool or relax in the hot tub.
2. Before heading out for dinner, check out the wine list at the hotel’s Enoteca Musto wine lounge and order up a glass of a local, California wine.
3. Now, you’re all set to enjoy one of many neighborhood restaurants…all within walking distance. Our favorites are McCormick and Kuleto’s at Ghirardelli Square for fresh locally-inspired cuisine; Scoma’s for just off the boat seafood; or Boudin’s where freshly made sourdough bread and a host of upscale Fisherman’s Wharf favorites are served.
4. If you need a little pick me up, and you’re not ready to call it a night, head to the Buena Vista for one of their famous Irish Coffees…yummy!
5. Not ready to call it a night? Be sure to stroll along the waterfront before heading back to the hotel…to work off some of those calories. If the night is still young, and you’re interested in taking in tunes from one of the city’s live bands, head to Jefferson Street where Lou's Pier 47 Restaurant and Blues Club offers up live music. Otherwise, make use of your cable car pass and hop on board one of these historic San Francisco icons…it’s nighttime when the mood is most magical.
6. Nighty night…and sweet dreams.
7. Saturday morning should start with the amazing buffet breakfast in Knuckles at the Wharf, conveniently located at the Hyatt at Fisherman’s Wharf. This is the best value for the money…and you can fuel up for the day, if you so choose.
8. Next, climb the notorious Filbert Steps. This unique “stairway to Heaven” leads up to Coit Tower, with gardens ad sculptures guiding the way up to a phenomenal, panoramic view of the bay at the top. After you get your blood pumping and have taken in the views, choose from a huge assortment of diversions, in and around the neighborhood:
- Wend your way through PIER 39’s new mirror maze.
- Board one of Red and White Fleet’s vessels for a California Sunset Cruise or one of the city’s “original bay tours.”
- Walk the decks of the tall ships and stroll along the Hyde Street Pier, home of the world's largest collection of historic ships by tonnage, where visitors can board several National Landmark vessel.
- Explore the National Maritime Museum and the USS Pampanito Submarine Museum.
- Take a 30-minute flight-seeing tour of the bay with San Francisco Seaplane Tours.
- Rent bikes or roller blades and head out to the 240 miles of scenic Bay Trail
9. After your full day of exploration, check in at Knuckles for one of Bartender Rick Lupo’s famous signature cocktails…my favorite is the Raspberry Lemon Drop Martini.
10. Then, you’ll want to head up to your room, order room service and make it an early evening…tomorrow is another day.
11. Sunday morning is a grab and go kind of day. So, before you head out for a day trip to the wine country with Grand Limousine or a half day city tour aboard Tower Tours, you’ll want to grab a loaf of sourdough bread and maybe some cheese and fruit at Boudin’s before heading off for another day of adventure. (Note: the hotel’s concierge can assist with reservations) Be sure to ask for a late check out or pack up and have the hotel hold your bags for the day.
