Weekend in San Francisco, CA

February 12, 2016

A friend recently asked me which California city she should check out on her first time visit. I asked her what she was looking for in her visit, whether it was sun and beach (San Diego), shopping and pretty people (Los Angeles), or culture/arts and nature (San Francisco). In my opinion, San Francisco is the perfect blend of all three popular California cities.

My weekend consisted of eating at Fisherman’s Wharf and the famous China Town, hiking the beautiful trails at Golden Gate Park, strolling through the Japanese Tea Garden, and shopping at Union Square and the Ferry Farmer’s Market. The city is 7 miles X 7 miles, so everything is close, but expect some congestion due to all the traffic lights.

Wine tasting in Napa Valley, CA

Napa Valley has a special place in my heart because that is one of the first trips my husband and I took when we started dating. Eight years later, we came back over the Thanksgiving weekend to enjoy the wineries with family. There are so many great wineries to choose from, but since we were limited on time (typical), we narrowed it down to our top three. Keep in mind that we’ve been here before, so we wanted to try new wineries.

Make sure to map out the wineries you want to visit, so you aren’t driving back and forth. There are lots of tours and transportation options depending on how much you plan on ‘tasting’.
