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.
