San Francisco Photo Diary
SF is one of those places that looks like it’s not a big deal but after visiting and living there, people can’t get enough of it. How can you not love amazing food, friendly people, fun and convenient transportation system, and amazing forests within driving distance? This amazing city offers something for everybody. Check out my San Francisco Photo Diary! For part I of this trip, check out my LA Photo Diary Post here.
My boyfriend and I have been to San Francisco before but never explored its touristy areas so we decided it was time. Because everything is so much closer in San Francisco, we managed to do a lot more. Including a visit to Alcatraz.
The perfect place to get a bowl of hot seafood soup but you may have to fight off some feisty seagulls. Just a few steps away, you will find Pier 39 where you will see all the sea lions cuddling!
Want to be transported back to the early 20th century? Stop by this spooky museum. The Musee Mecanique is an interactive museum filled with 20th-century penny arcade games located at Fisherman’s Wharf.
Make sure to buy your ticket in advance and to bring a jacket and/or a scarf. It’s very windy and way colder than on the mainland. They have a morning and night tour for those who are brave enough to visit at night. Also, you will find the BEST view of San Francisco!
Did I mention to check out my San Francisco Photo Diary?!
Japanese Botanical Garden – San Francisco Photo Diary
How cute is this?! Stroll around the garden and enjoy a snack in the tea shop. Food is not so great but the view is indeed worthwhile. The mini sandwiches were perfect!
We explore like tourists but when it comes to food, we eat like locals.
Craving Ramen? I’m always craving it, like I’m always craving tacos…For delicious ramen, head out to Slurp Ramen in Chinatown. I walked from the financial district to China town and enjoyed the little alleys leading to the restaurant.
Volta – Modern French Cuisine
This was one of our favorite finds in San Francisco. Newly opened, Volta offers traditional French cuisine with a modern twist. Make sure to order the Soupe de Poison and for dessert, Caneles De Bordeaux or as I call it, Tiny Cake. The Frenchies approved.
GOTT’S – craving an AMAZING burger? Head to GOTT’S! Their burgers are incredibly fresh and tasty. I swear if it weren’t because we were in a rush, I would have gotten back in line and ordered one more to take on the flight.
Food heaven? This little market is located inside the Ferry Building.
If you are looking for refined cuisine, check out Michael Mina’s restaurant. Michael Mina has restaurants all over the country but this one is the flagship restaurant with a Michelin star.
San Francisco has an abundance of stellar restaurants so it sounds to me, like a great excuse to go back and feed my love for food!
