San Francisco history paired with beautiful views of the bay.

If you’re looking for a wonderful spot to spend an afternoon while in San Francisco, make sure to visit Ghirardelli Square!

There are all sorts of delicious food options, amazing little shops and the people watching is exceptional.  I highly recommend getting an ice-cream sundae and sitting outside in the sunshine.  Makes for a perfect day!  And if you want to wander a bit, this is also a great spot to get some steps in :)

Ghirardelli Square also has a long and storied history – read more here!

If you're feeling really bold, you can go for a pre or post ice cream swim in aquatic park

Ghirardelli Square Reviews

Fun stop but ended up eating too much sugar in the form of a mega ice cream glass.

We split one of those mega sugary chocolate ice cream things after taking a walk around the square. I love chocolate, not as big a fan of overly sweet things though.

If you have a small amount of free time in between your other SF stops check this place out. But, I would not make it a priority if you are pressed for time. Still fun to see, but there's cooler stuff close by (including Fisherman's Wharf and Land's End Hike).
