Even as locals, we love playing tourist in San Francisco – it’s such a FUN city to explore, walk, eat, shop… and people-watch! Chinatown is one of our favorite places to hang out. Located just a short walk from downtown Union Square (look for the green pagoda at the entrance to Grant Ave), the area is jam-packed with little restaurants, dim sum parlors, Chinese markets, bakeries, antique stores and more shops than you can count.Continue reading

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.

Looking for a fun way to see San Francisco’s top attractions – take a Hop-on-Hop-Off Bus Tour. It’s a great way to see the city’s sights, especially if you have a limited amount of time and want to see as much as possible. One of the first things we do when we travel to a new city is to take a narrated double-decker bus tour – you can hop on and off at your leisure or just stay on board and then go back to the places that you want to spend more time visiting. All buses are air-conditioned and offer free onboard wi-fi.
This is a wonderful time of year to visit the City by the Bay. Choose a 1 or 2-day City Loop Pass.
