San Fran Getaway





My husband and I decided to take a little getaway to the 'ole West Coast for a few days. Obviously, it was a no-brainer that San Fran would be our destination of choice. Neither of us had been there and after hearing countless tales of how amazing the city was, we finally got to make a trip!

We spent four days in the chilly city and had such a great time! We rented bikes and grabbed a local map and roamed the city for hours...down the ocean front and over the massive (and super eerie) Golden Gate Bridge and down into the gorgeous little seaside town of Sausalito before hopping on a ferry across the bay back to the city. 

We had some amazing seafood down on Fisherman's Wharf. 

We stayed in a gorgeous hotel right in the center of some amazing shopping in Union Square. 

We got to experience what was hands down THE most amazing concert there will ever be - a little Justin Timberlake & Jay-Z on their Legends of the Summer Stadium Tour stop at Candlestick Park. (And then maybe fought a crowd of 55,000 people and hitch-hiked through the hood that surrounds the stadium at midnight on a Friday night and maybe feared for our lives until we could chase down a cab to take us back to our hotel after the concert...) 

We rented a car and drove an hour north into wine country and stopped at a few wineries in Napa Valley. Which, is quite possibly, the most serene and peaceful and gorgeous place I've ever been in the U S of A.

All in all it was a perfect trip....I can't wait to go back again one day! If you haven't been to the Bay Area, it's a definite vacay spot for anyone wanting to get away! 

And just a little disclaimer: If you're traveling in July, take yourself a solid little winter coat.
It's true what Mr. Twain once said: "The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco..."
50 degrees in July, guys. 50. stinkin. degrees.

Here are a few snaps of our weekend out in Cali.

Enjoy!
