Onto part 2 of the beginnings of our honeymoon plans. Yes it’s well over a year before we go but what can I say, I’m a planner! See Part 1 for our New York Plans. Unlike New York, we only have 2 full days to spend in San Francisco (with two half days on top) so we’ve got a lot less time on our hands. San Francisco has been a dream of mine for years and it’s the only one out of the three destinations that I have never been to before. So Topher and I get to explore it together for the first time. Excited isn’t a strong enough word.
Anyway, in terms of activities the main three priorities for us are The Golden Gate Bridge, then Topher wants to visit Alcatraz and I want to visit The Disney Family Museum. You may or may not have noticed my extreme disney love so a trip there is a must. Besides that, it’s going to be a lot of wandering around and eating! I want to see Chinatown and Golden Gate Park too. No plans as to where we’re staying yet. Maybe we’ll airbnb it since it’s the birth place of the site? Unless anyone has any great recommendations?
Anyway, important stuff now – food! Again, we’ve got a few places in mind. Absolutely no dinner plans though – these are all breakfast, lunch and snacks. So purely based on pinterest searching I’ve found a few places including Tartine for a famous morning bun and Brenda’s French Soul food for beignets. Ever since I saw the film Chef I have been craving beignets like mad! Maybe finally I’ll get to try them? For lunch I’ve heard great things about Ike’s Place sandwiches – nothing better than an amazing sandwich, am I right? Unless we’re talking grilled cheese because then there’s nothing better than The American Grilled Cheese Kitchen. Then for dessert it’s going to be the battle of the ice creams. In the blue corner is Humphry Slocombe which is known for their ingenuity when it comes to flavours. And in the red corner is the tried and tested Bi-Rite Creamery who have a snickerdoodle flavour that satisfies my need for cinnamon all day everyday. And randomly I have a sweet shop on my list called Miette that looks so instagramable I could squee. Sorry Topher!
Have you ever been to San Francisco? Any tips?
