Originally, we were going to go to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic...but October is hurricane season, and i didn't want to take any risk of RAIN and HURRICANE on my HONEYMOON!!!!!!! Also, My idea of a vacation is sitting on a beach, tanning, with a nice drink in hand-while hubby is more or the history, sight seeing type. I decided that San Francisco was a fair trade...romantic yet lots of history....so it was really a win win.
I'm really crazy when it comes to planning vacations and getaways. I seriously DO MY RESEARCH (I'm pretty much like that with lots of things). I mean, Literally. I actually google mapped San Francisco, and (digitally) walked up and down streets. Isn't google map the best invention, EVER?!!
First, I'd like to say...San Francisco is definitely for lovers. Actually, all of California is. There is something in the air, i tell ya. Being from NY...you totally see/feel/smell it. It's such a different lifestyle...definitely something I could get used to!
We booked our hotel by Fisherman's Wharf (Pier 39). The reason i choose this location was simple....EVERYTHING is within walking distance. Parking on the street is very expensive in SF, since it's mostly tourist...so i wanted something with walking distance to all the attractions. But best of all, the hotel had a rental car service, so if we wanted to go out, and needed a car...we could rent and return the same day. PERFECT! :) We booked 6 nights at the Sheraton Fisherman's Wharf on Mason street. And i made sure to google map everything within 1 mile of there. I actually felt like i knew where i was when i got there!!! ;)
We then walked back to our room, which was only like a 3 minute walk from TJ's...to put our drinks on ice:
Hubby shown here with the ice bucket! :)
I of course had the crab cake (my fave).
After that we walked around the pier some more...until the sun set...and that was the end of day 1. I will post more tomorrow, but i hope you enjoyed Part 1 of our honeymoon so far!! ;)
