I have been wanting to check out San Francisco, California for some time now.
I’m always looking to explore new places.
After researching best places to visit in November, San Fran came up!
We were a lil worried due to the fact that fire and devastation hit Napa and Sonoma this October.
However, it worked out just fine and they need tourists more now than ever. And here we are. 👯🍷☀️🚃
Sonoma Wine Tour: We booked a last minute tour thru our hotel. We were picked up right from our hotel and drove into Sausilito which looked like beautiful town to stay in. We stopped at two wineries, Jacuzzi Winery and Homewood Winery that included genorous tastings. We had beautiful views of the Sonoma vineyards, and we got to hang out in each winery for awhileWe stayed in Hotel Zephyr, a cute boutique hotel located in Fisherman’s Wharf.
Fisherman’s Wharf is a great place to stay since you are close to Pier 39 which has a lot of shops and restaurants. There are quite a few seafood restaurants to choose from.
They are known for their New England Clam Chowder and fresh seafood. We had a delicious meal at PierMarket.
At Pier 39, you can also take a cruise to check out Alcatraz and the Golden State Bridge.
Pier 39 also has a hang out spot for Seals where you can see them lounge and hear them “bark”.

I got baked in San Francisco. They are known for their cronuts. A croissant mixed with a powdered sugar 🍩 donut! Yum ! It’s a tiny space but be sure to get your pic in front of the neon “I just got baked” sign.They close at 2:30pm so be sure to get there early!
food in San Francisco.
I had the spaghetti 🍝 it was soooo fresh and tasty.
Simple and Al dente with fresh basil just how I like it.
As good if not better than Scarpetta! (another fav of mine)
Make reservations they get pretty busy! They also have Pizzeria Delfina next door!Tonga Room and Hurricane Bar

Once I saw the pictures of a live band on a floating boat/stage in a lagoon I knew I had to check this bar/restaurant out. Located inside The Fairmont Hotel in San Francisco. Offering Polynesian- Fusion cuisine, Mai Tai’s, and of course pina colada’s. You don’t come here for the food you come here for the experience. FYI they do not take reservations if you aren’t a guest of the hotel. Golden Gate Bridge: There are several ways to view and take pics of The Golden Gate Bridge. We took a cruise out to the bridge which was pretty cool. We went right up to it and got incredible shots. We also were able to get a clear view of Alcatraz. We also took an uber out to Golden Gate look out. I hear fog can be a problem. However, we got lucky and the fog did not disrupt our view at all. The famous Full House House ( I am a 80’s baby)and The Painted Ladies: Gorgeous Victorian houses painted in lovely pastel colors.
I also visited Chinatown where I ate Dim Sum and shopped around for cheap souvenirs.
Try to get a ride on a old school cable car if you can. The wait can exceed an hour!
