If you had to move away, how would you spend your last day in San Francisco? Sarah loves the Golden Gate Bridge and would spend some time hanging out there. She would take walks along the Embarcadero and up to Twin Peaks. Sarah would visit wine country for one last tasting and then enjoy beautiful views of the coast as she drives down Highway 1 to Big Sur.
