TRAVEL: SAN FRANCISCO

Obviously, outlets are a priority. 😀 We went to livermore, about 30 minutes from San Francisco City. ❤ Ready your wallets! Aside from 40% – 70% discount, they also give you coupons for the day that gives you an additional 10% – 20% discount on top of the usual. ❤

 

Then, we went to the famous Fisherman’s Wharf, alongside Pier 39.

It is one of the busiest tourist attractions in San Francisco. You’ll see souvenir shops and specialty stores in both sides of the streets on the way to Pier 39. 😀

 

I also got to try Lotus Biscoff Coffee. ❤ ❤ It’s so good!! Perfect to combat the windy nights of SF.

 

We also went to Ghirardelli Square

 

It is now the home of a stylish collection of shops and restaurants—one of the most pleasant places to stroll and shop in the city. Wind through passageways and across plazas to visit an assortment of boutiques and gift shops, or relax with bay views from a selection of restaurants. If you have kids along, you probably have one destination in mind more than any other: the Ghirardelli Soda Fountain and Chocolate Shop.

I am 110% you’ll be overwhelmed inside their chocolate shop!

Of our downtime moments. ❤ We also bought tickets for the Cable Car.

You can buy them at Pier 39. We bought it for $7.00, a single ride ticket. You can buy it for $21 where you can hop on and off the cable stops around the city for the day.

We hopped off at the last stop, Union Square. It is the commercial hub of the city. Many major hotels and department stores are packed into the area surrounding the actual square. Numerous upscale boutiques, restaurants, nightspots and galleries occupy the spaces tucked between the larger buildings.

This is where you’ll also find the famous Cheesecake Factory with an overlooking view of the whole Union Square. The restaurant is situated in their roofdeck but be sure to make a reservation. Or if you’re planning to have lunch there, be sure to be at restaurant around 10. When we got there about 12:30, we were already 23rd on the list. WOW right? So no. We did not wait.

Okayyyyyy… so my favorite of all SF Spots —- Palace of Fine Arts

DSCF1875

It is the last remaining structure from the 1915 Panama Pacific Exposition. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, this classical looking building is beautifully situated on a lagoon that reflects the mirror image on the surface of the calm water, while ducks and geese drift by. (planetware).

Ofcourse, you can’t visit this place without going to Napa Valley, famous for Wine Tasting.  It’s known for hundreds of hillside vineyards in the Napa Valley wine region.

 

They actually have a wine train where you get to visit at least 5 wineries. But we opted to just visit 1 — V. Sattui Winery

This particular winery offers 5 wines for $20. 😀 Good deal right? You can choose from a long list and they will also help you choose and recommend based on your preference.

 

Finally ticked off Napa Valley on my list! But I have to bring judey here. :/ He should be here.

 

Want to know another first time for me? Sleep in a yacht!

 

It’s a real work! It’s nice to experience it but I wouldn’t want to sleep in one again. I don’t normally get sea sick or car sick — but sleeping on a boat is like floating for hours and hours.

And finally, the movie famous — Golden Gate Bridge

Connecting San Francisco with Marin County and other districts further north, the Golden Gate Bridge was, at one time, designated the greatest man-made sight in the United States.

 

Hope to be back again, San Francisco! ❤ There’s still a lot I haven’t seen. :/
