For the last few weeks I had the chance to borrow a MINI Cooper (I’ve always wanted to drive one ever since the Italian Job movie came out) and it has been so fun to drive! Don’t let the size of the car fool you, it has SO much power. While I had the car on loan, my sister and I thought it would be a perfect opportunity to take it for a drive around San Francisco. On our drive up, we realized neither of us had ever been to Alamo Square (where the iconic Painted Ladies sit/Full House was filmed) so we headed that way!
Alamo Square was such a cute spot. There is a park right in the middle of the square where you can picnic and enjoy the view of the Painted Ladies with a view of the city behind them. It is a popular site to visit so there is definitely a constant stream of tourists that come through for photos. Parking is always difficult in the city, but were were so lucky to snag a great parking spot that was basically made for a MINI Cooper!
For anyone planning a trip to San Francisco for the near future, I put together a list of some of my favorite and most beautiful spots that are a must see:
1. Vista Point
2. Land’s End
6. Alamo Square
9. Kirby Cove
