San Francisco oozes romance and there's no lack of things for romantic couples to do. Where better to view a dazzling Pacific sunset than from the Golden Gate Bridge? Snuggle up to your sweetie on a Cable Car ride through the hilly streets or on the chilly bay cruise over to Alcatraz Island, where you can take the guided tour and get locked into the pitch black solitary cell together.
Hold hands as you take in the serene beauty of the Japanese Tea Gardens or the Conservatory of Flowers, while strolling through glorious Golden Gate Park. Climb around the Sutro Bath ruins and enjoy the crashing waves before heading into the Cliff House to share a bottle of wine.
The beach is always a romantic spot, and Baker Beach is no exception. Its epic view of the Golden Gate Bridge and the Marin Headlands provides a pretty backdrop for a picnic or a cuddle session while watching the sunset. For something a little more offbeat, frolic around the Musee Mecanique at Fisherman's Wharf and feel like teenagers in love again. You could share a chowder sourdough bread bowl afterward.
Relax with your honey and feel like movie stars at the posh Nob Hill Spa in the Huntington Hotel. The south-facing downtown views through the floor to ceiling glass by the pool are fabulous. End a special night with ice skating at the Yerba Buena ice rink, followed by a stroll through the peaceful oasis of Yerba Buena Gardens.
