San Francisco

20Aug13

San Francisco is one of those places that isn’t just known for one monument or moment in history.  It’s chock full of character and hosts attractions galore.  When I think of San Fran, I think of wavy haired hippies chillin’ on the steps of Jerry Garcia’s place near Haight/Ashbury.  I think of the first time I visited as a kid and came home with a stuffed panda named Bobo (who we then go on to be the inspiration behind the naming of a family dog years later).  I think of the Golden Gate bridge and the intro to Full House.   It just brings to mind so many different things, all of which are distinctly San Frantastic.

I visited this City by the Bay in June and relished in copious clam chowder, sourdough bread, and Ghiradelli chocolate.  I also bought a ticket for a hop on/hop off trolley and tried to squeeze as many sights as possible into my 2.5 day stay.   Here’s what I came away with.

  1. Was looking for the pics of the Golden Gate Bridge! I want to visit San Fran one day (I don’t live that far away..could do it in a roadtrip) but the Golden Gate Bridge just looks so romantic!
