Have you ever been in the car with your wife headed out for a meal at a restaurant and you say to her, “Where do you want to eat dear?”  Her answer is, “I don’t know, you pick, I picked last time.” I suppose we have all been there one time or another and you usually give in and pick a place to dine and when you do, she can be heard to say, “ I don’t want to eat there, pick some place else.”

1.  San Francisco, CA

It’s no secret that San Francisco is one of the most beautiful and romantic cities in the world. It’s also a top foodie destination. We may be a teeny bit biased because we live here, but it is really is a very special place. Whisk your honey away on a scenic twilight bay cruise with the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz and the city skyline as your backdrop. Explore North Beach and its outdoor cafes, a perfect spot for a cappuccino and espresso. Enjoy a romantic Italian dinner, then take your honey to see Beach Blanket Babylon, a hilarious, one-of-a-kind, only-in-San Francisco show featuring song, dance and comedy – it’s so good, we’ve seen it four times! Visit Fisherman’s Wharf and feast on San Francisco’s famous sourdough bread and fresh Dungeness Crab. For a romantic setting overlooking the ocean, head over to the Cliff House for cocktails and dinner as the sun sets over the Pacific. If you have time, take a fun day trip along California’s spectacular coastline and visit Monterey and Carmel – both offer a truly romantic setting for Valentine’s Day.
