I lived in San Francisco for a few years in my mid-late twenties. It was really an important, formative time in my life; I learned a lot about myself, made incredible life-long friends, and most importantly, was able to share the experiences with my best friend, my sister. I normally visit a few times a year but last year I only went once! So needless to say, a trip was long overdue. We had lots of girly time, drinks and snacks, some shopping, some gossip, a free day at the MOMA and more. I have many fond memories and am often nostalgic about SF, but at the same time, I know I'm in the right place.
Have you ever been? It truly is an enchanting city with gorgeous views and delicious restaurants. The biggest tip I could give you? Go for a walk, get into the neighborhoods. The Richmond, Mission, NOPA, Hayes Valley, and for a bit of calm, the Presidio. The main attractions are great, but in all of my travels, I've always had the best time when I strayed from the beaten path.
What’s your favorite thing to do when on the road, traveling?
