Want to visit San Francisco, but you’re on a budget? Spend a day in the Golden Gate City for only $100!

San Francisco is known for its vast hills and seafood delicacies, so naturally, George decides the first thing he’s going to do is to walk around the different neighborhoods and get a lobster roll from Woodhouse Fish Co. With Napa Valley on his mind, he then goes to Decant SF in the Soma neighborhood to try some San Francisco wine and get educated on their wine flights. But after all the walking, George is enticed by the iconic SF symbol—the cable car. He decides to go to the Cable Car Museum and factory to learn more, and then hops on a cable car for a tour of the city.

As an homage to nearby Gilroy, California, the garlic capital of the world, George picks up an order of garlic fries to enjoy in one of many of the city's privately-owned public open spaces. Still hungry and with a good chunk of change left over, George heads to Chinatown. San Francisco is home to one of the biggest Chinatowns in the world—and the alleged birthplace of the fortune cookie— so, it was a must-see for George! He visits the Golden Gate Fortune Cookies to see how they’re made, and write his own fortune, too! With $28 left to spare, he goes back to Decant SF and uses his new wine knowledge to pair a glass with his fresh fortune cookie.

Lobster Rolls, Wine Tastings, Cable Car Tour, and a Fortune Cookie Factory - all this for only $83 total! This is #GeorgeGoesEverywhere.
