We spent three night in San Francisco and I quickly fell in love. We happened to be there for New Years so it was a bit hard to find parking at times. They do have great public transportation, but KJ was having asthma flair ups so it was easier for us to stick with our car. Every time we were without the car the Mr had to carry little man and let's just say he's not that little anymore. We stayed at an amazing Airbnb. It was our first time going that route and we will for sure be doing it again. Plus it being mid-way through our trip it was nice to be able to eat in and do laundry. We already have a list of future airbnb's we would love to stay in. We had family come into town for a visit and it was so much fun. Again this leg of trip kept us close to the car because of KJ so most of our adventures were based around things you can see through a window.
Drive down Lombard Street. It really is quite beautiful and the kiddos were just in awe.
Pier 39 was worth the crowds to be able to see sea lions up that close. It also has great views of Alcatraz.
We explored China Town for a bit and went on the hunt for the ladies who make fortune cookies in the alley. The kiddos were giddy once we found them.
Of course the golden gate bridge is stunning, but all the bridges had me in awe. Part of the adventure was driving all the big bridges.
Ferry Plaza Farmers Market reminded me of Chelsea Market or a Pikes Place. Tons of good eating and great shops. It's also the first time I laid my eyes on Heath Ceramics after having a long distance crush and now I'm officially head over heels.
We also took a drive through Presidio, an old base, and we loved it so much we did it again the same day. It really was oh so beautiful.
Our airbnb was in the Berkley Hills so a few times we stayed close and ate in what they call the Gourmet Ghetto. It has an insane amount of places to eat. We tried the Crepevine and the GF pancakes did not disappoint. KJ even ended up finishing them off for me.
I really wanted to try Mission Heirloom, but we could never fit it into the schedule especially around New Years hours. Next time!
