Need Advice: San Francisco

We are going to San Francisco and area this July! I’m open to all of your wonderful suggestions to keep me (you know me) and 2 boys (10 and 6 years old) happy. Here is what I have down so far.

Days 1 – 2: We are driving from Vancouver, BC and need to stop half way overnight to preserve the sanity. Any good place? Mountain St. Helen’s? Rosenburg? Been to Portland before.

MY LATEST RECIPES

Days 3 – 5: We will be staying in Union Square in this hotel (surprise-surprise – complimentary wine hour at night). I have booked Alcatraz trip and plan on walking the Golden Gate bridge with the kids. Am I crazy? Should we drive it? Should I bring scooters for the boys to ride while we walk off doughnuts, so less whining?

Lombard Street? Chinatown? Baker Beach? AT&T park?

People, where to eat? Good and nothing crazy expensive because 1US$ = 1.40 CAD$. The scariest emoji ever goes here but life is damn short.

4th of July fireworks – what is the best place to watch? There will be fireworks, right?!

Day 6: I was planning driving inland down to Big Sur and come up on Hwy 1 to enjoy the beautiful views. However, is Hwy 1 partially closed? How can I still see Big Sur? Monterey? Santa Cruz? What is a good place to stay overnight passing Big Sur – I honestly am not interested in US$500 per night ocean views haha.

Day 7: Napa and Sonoma. Is there anything else to do besides knocking myself out with wine tasting? Any specific wine tour that is good? I was thinking visiting a few wineries and then check into a nice hotel with a pool for the boys. Yes? No?

Oh, and I AM driving through Amy’s!

Day 8-9: Going home. Again, anything we should see off of Hwy 5 and a good place to stop half way home?

Thanks a bunch! Have a great weekend, guys, while I go rob the bank to fund my inner wanderlust.
