Watch in high quality (480p). In this video, it shows me with my cousins Gretchen, Ronel and Steven travel and enjoy the great outdoors on this lovely Cinco de Mayo day at around San Francisco, CA.

We arrived to the city by around 12:30 p.m. We first drove through the busy streets of Van Ness and Lombard. We visited the Golden Gate Bridge first and walked towards the north tower of the bridge. We found lucky parking right by the restroom area at the Vista Point. After walking around the bridge and enjoying the scenery, we decided to go up around the Marin Headlands towards the Hawk Hill. From up there, we can see a bird's eye view of the entire San Francisco Bay. The towers of the Golden Gate Bridge were at eye level so we were pretty high up! This area was also part of the Golden Gate National Recreational Area. The San Francisco Bay, and the city skyline is famously viewed from Marin County & the Marin Headlands in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area.

Afterwards, we descended from the mountains of the Marin Headlands and drove back to San Francisco. We had to pay $6 to re-enter the city due to the southbound Golden Gate Bridge toll gate. Oh well, the trip was worth $6. We then drove along Lombard and then continued to head northward along Van Ness and then drove towards Fisherman's Wharf. We were lucky enough to find a parking spot but we had to put coins. Somehow the parking meter was eating a lot of our coins! But ultimately, we had just over an hour of time. So then we walked to and around Fisherman's wharf. it was quite crowded!

Finally, we decided to eat at one of the outdoor stands...at the Sabella LaTorre's. It was around 3 p.m. at this time. My cousin Gretchen had a clam chowder bread bowl and cousins Ronel and Steven had fries and fried calamari. I didn't buy anything since my money went to the toll bridge. Ultimately, we all ended up sharing each other's food since we couldn't finish all the food.

Then it was nearing 4 p.m. so we decided to call the trip finished since my cousin Steven had to be back to San Jose like since 3 p.m. for their church worship songs practice! We had too much fun here indeed!

While trying to find familiar roads while leaving Fisherman's Wharf, we had to drive up a couple steep roads! My cousin Gretchen was nervous since this was her first time driving her car on these steep roads! We managed to get a snapshot glimpse of the famous crooked road along Lombard. We finally left the city just after 4 p.m.

Despite a quick trip, we still enjoyed a lovely outing here around San Francisco on this lovely Cinco de Mayo Saturday afternoon!
