It was my first time in NorCal. I stayed at a cute Airbnb in Berkeley (sidenote: I’m pretty positive the place had a ghost 👻) Nonetheless, the vibe in the little city was nice, very artsy.
I think San Francisco is amazing it’s a lot colder than I predicted. I am used to a dry heat being from Utah. I am happy my son pre-warned me to take a jacket. However, I still had to purchase a sweatshirt, which my 12-year-old happily snatched from me as soon as I got home. The most memorable place I ate was the Anchor Oyster Bar & Seafood Marker in Castro 😻. I loved the wine tasting at Pier 39. I went with the sweetness, and the Mirassou Moscato was my fav!
I had a blast just walking around it is so different from Utah. I am a vinyl collector, so when we came across 101 Music, I was thrilled. (We could use some more record shops in UT.) Anyway, I found some great records Mary Wells: Greatest Hits, Led Zeppelin: MotherShip, Bill Withers’: Greatest Hits, Bob Marley & The Wailers: In Dub Vol.1, and Etta James: At Last, all became new additions to my collection, and a super plus shipping was cheap.
Overall, four days is not long enough to discover all of what San Francisco has to offer; however, it was a great intro. Next trip, I would like to see some museums, check out the nightlife, and see the Golden Gate Bridge without being covered in fog.
The spots I hit up in San Fran were Pier 39, Chinatown, Russia Hill, Coit Tower, Union Square, Golden Gate Bridge, Oakland Bay Bridge, and The Castro.
Thanks for reading!
The sunset at the Pier is beautiful
