Savor a cup of cappuccino in one of the Italian trattorias at North Beach or enjoy a panoramic view on top of Coit Tower in Telegraph hill. And this is only the beginning of San Francisco’s seduction!
A good follow up would be a half or full-day tour of the Bay Area to acquaint yourself the ethnic and eclectic neighborhoods. Cities within the city also await you like Haight-Ashbury, the posh Pacific Heights, or the Union Square. Making the choices is the only challenge San Francisco offers.
Day and night, pleasurable experiences await. Be it a morning stroll along Embarcadero where ferries and tour boats are moored at the piers, or simply enjoy a bird’s eye view of the bay on top of the observatory in the Transamerica Pyramid. The wooded trails and secluded lakes of the Golden Gate Park are great places to go biking or in-line skating.
Night times are enchanting as well at SoMa. South of Market Street is a trendy area that is peppered with experimental theaters, sophisticated night clubs and gourmet restaurants. Later in the evening, Union Square offers a classic San Francisco experience which is dancing at Harry Denton’s Starlight Room located on the top floor of Sir Francis Drake Hotel.
Once you call it a day, you can relax at any of the Victorian bed-and-breakfast inns and European-style hotels that quite possibly sparks romance anew!
