This was my fourth trip to San Francisco in so many years. It was the first destination Joe and I traveled to soon after we started dating. My brother lived there for a few years so I made a couple trips to visit then. This time Joe and I took advantage of cheap flights to get away for Valentines Day weekend. We visited a few of our favorite places and also experienced some new ones.
Revisited (out of love)
The poached eggs la mer and a grapefruit mimosa at Zazie.
A walk around Stow Lake and up to the top of Strawberry Hill in Golden Gate Park.
Guacamole and margaritas at Gracias Madre in The Mission.
Walking miles through the city.
Rich pasta dinner at Trattoria Contadina.
New Things we Tried (and also loved)
Botanical Gardens in Golden Gate Park
Sunday morning Dim Sum at Lai Hong Lounge in Chinatown
Ferry to Alcatraz
French dinner in the loft at Bouche
We had beautiful sunny weather the whole weekend so we spent most of our time doing outdoor things. I think my favorite part of this trip was exploring the Botanical Gardens. So many magnolias blooming! I had a hard time narrowing down the flower photos to share...
I am sure I will be back to San Francisco again soon! Be sure to share any recommendations you have for my next trip.
