Minimoon in San Francisco

Posted on Sep 26, 2014 in Featured, Honeymoons & Travel | 0 comments

My husband Brandon & I decided to take a quick getaway after our wedding to decompress from all the chaos. We are taking a nice long trip in December to St. Lucia so we are calling this little trip to San Francisco our minimoon. Due to it being the Ghirardelli Chocolate Festival as well as the week of 2 huge sporting events going on in town, hotels prices were through the roof! A friend recommended looking into airbnb.com to find our accommodations. We were able to find a quaint & cozy studio apartment with a full kitchen in the popular nob hill area for half the price of a hotel! It was perfect for us because it allowed us to truly feel like locals during our stay. Not to mention the view we had from the rooftop! We shopped down the street at the local Trader Joes & made breakfast & coffee every morning. We used the Lyft app to get around when walking wasn’t a possibility & checked out some great sightseeing as well as ate the most delectable food! We of course also saw a Giants baseball game & shopped till we couldn’t walk anymore. It was such a perfect little vacation for us to celebrate our love! Here are some things I highly recommend doing in the San Francisco Area:

For Sightseeing:
Fishermans Warf ( the view of Alcatraz from the pier is phenomenal! ) There are also a lot of fun touristy shops & restaurants.
Take a ferry to Sausalito
Explore China Town (great for gifts to bring back to loved ones & yummy inexpensive food!)
Grace’s Cathedral (most beautiful art instillation by Ann Patterson)
Lombard Street (crooked street filled with amazing hydrangeas)

Shopping:
Womens clothes & knickknacks at Picnic in NobHill
All the shops on Polk Street in Nobhill or Fillmore street
Amazing china from Peking Bazaar in China Town

Food:
Breakfast: Brenda’s French Soul Food
652 Polk St, San Francisco, CA 94102
(this place was AMAZING, outstanding omelets & beignets)
Dinner: Frascati 1901 Hyde St, San Francisco, CA 94109
(such a romantic upscale place, ask to be seated upstairs for a more intimate setting)
