Is it better to stay in Union Square or Fisherman’s Wharf?
If you are going to spend all your time in San Francisco at the Wharf, and have young children, I may suggest a Wharf hotel.

How many days in San Francisco is enough?
Most visitors find three days in San Francisco is a good amount of time to get a solid introduction to the city. However, if you have a week it’s highly recommended you take a few San Francisco day trips. For example, to the Wine Country or vibrant cities like Oakland and Berkeley, which are across the Bay.
