San Francisco, CA
The City by the Bay! My trip was everything I imagined and more. Personally, I hit a travel milestone after visiting San Fran because a year before I made a goal to visit the BIG 3 all within one year (San Diego-May 2015, LA-September 2015, and San Francisco-February 2016). I kept putting off my visit to SF so thank you Vanessa for finally "twisting" my arm to go. You were an absolutely amazing travel companion especially because you didn't complain (that much) about all the walking I planned. However, after 25 miles in 3 days, I think we were both greatly pleased by all the landmarks, neighborhoods, and architecture that we might not have seen. Of course, the list is long, but man was it enjoyable: Fisherman's Wharf, Pier 39, Alcatraz, COIT Tower, North Beach, Cow Hollow, Russian Hill, Nob Hill, the Painted Ladies, Transamerica Pyramid, Hayes Street, Market Street, the Embarcadero, AT&T Park, Union Square, Lombard Street, the Golden Gate Bridge, the Bay Bridge, Historic Cable Cars, Civic Center, Chinatown (during the Chinese New Year), the Financial District, Alamo Square, and the Ferry Building. Thanks for the wonderful distraction San Francisco, and thank you for the memories Vanessa. Until next time.
