Romantic San Francisco



Description:

We know it’s rather trite—droll, even—to start waxing poetic on how visitors will leave their hearts in San Francisco, et cetera, et cetera. However, we have to admit that the song is right. Once you’ve visited the City by the Bay, you realize there is a certain magic here that sets the heart aflutter, whether you’re basking in beautiful sunset vistas, enjoying stolen moments in serene spots, or savoring the sensual flavors of local cuisine.

Day 1 - San Francisco


Assemble a picnic from the San Francisco Farmer’s Market (or, if the market isn’t open, from the gourmet shops at the SF Ferry Building Marketplace) and then head west to Golden Gate Park. Want to feel like you’re the only two people on the planet? Well, we can’t guarantee total privacy, but semi-secluded nature walks can be had in the park’s many nooks and crannies. The Strybing Arboretum & Botanical Garden is a particularly tranquil place for that picnic. Come dusk, take in the sunset with a lovely Wine Country varietal at Ocean Beach. For an evening treat, satisfy your sweet tooth with a trip to SF dessert legend Citizen Cake.

Day 2 - San Francisco


Although this day will take you all over the city, it’s ripe with opportunities for grand romantic gestures. Stroll around the grounds of the Palace of Fine Arts and soak up the dreamy architecture and natural scenery. Then take to the waters on a scenic Bay Cruise. Drive up to the top of Twin Peaks for an amazing sunset panoramic view, followed by a sophisticated fine dining experience at Gary Danko.
