San Francisco for honeymoon

26 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello VJers,

Me and my husband will be having our delayed honeymoon in San Francisco this coming August. I am looking forward for this trip because I really want to see the San Francisco bridge and the Alcatraz while my husband wants to go the wine country. What other parts of this state that we must see guys? We'll rent a car at the airport but we'll be there for 3 days only. Any suggestion's appreciated.

I gots to push the Russian River. There is Korbel Champagne in Guerneville, and Windsor offers Hot Air Balloon tours of the wineries and the Russian River Valley. The Sonoma Coast is an amazing sight, with good food in both Jenner, at the mouth of the Russian River, and at Bodega Bay, where the San Andreas Fault meets the Pacific Ocean.

And, of course, you can just follow the signs, in Napa and Sonoma counties, and never run out of wineries to visit, and wine to taste. Farther north, if you don't mind the drive, there is the Skunk Train, a day's ride there and back from Willets to Ft. Brag, where you can stop for lunch.

Congratulations!

We were there a last May for only a day and a half. We took a 3 hour bus tour, which took you out to places you may or may not get to, and you also get some good history.

I also love Fishermans warf, and pier 39!! Much fun. (or at least for me) You also need to go see Lombard Street. You will on the bus tour, but you're too far away. If you are renting a car, you have to drive down it! The worlds crookedest street! We also had to do a harbour tour, only cause you go under the Golden Gate, be prepared for wind!!

And of course, a trolley downtown. Easy to catch and fun to ride! Especially when they get stuck going up those hills!! What an adventure.

I love San Fransisco!! We didn't have time to do it all, and I hope to get back. I'd love to go through china town.

Have a great and wonderful time. I know you will!

in san francisco:

you must do fisherman's wharf/ghiradelli square and pier 39. if possible take a bay boat tour their fun you can see angel island, alcatraz and both bridges. chinatown/north beach (little italy) are neighboring areas and a nice walk. lombard street (the crookedest street in the world!) coit tower, the cliff house is beautiful and has romantic restaurants.

if you are going to do some driving you could also see hearst castle, monterey/carmel and san luis obispo too!

i live in san francisco so i can make some restuarant recommendations if you like...enjoy!

Chinatown is a colorful neighborhood where you can window shop and enjoy the best Chinese food on the west coast.

No trip to Frisco is complete without a drive over the Golden Gate bridge. There are turn offs from the road (just north of the bridge) where you can take photos of the bridge with downtown SF in the background.

For stunning scenery, drive south through Big Sur, or, as Mr. Bill suggests, north through the Sonama coast.

Don't forget to stop by Chow King in Vallejo, and Jollibee's in Union City. :whistle: A Filipino friend tells me that the Chicken Joy at the Vallejo Chow King is better than in the Philippines. :yes:

Enjoy!

Mike here,

We will be in Santa Rosa specifically to go to the Russian River Brewery. I love that place! I'm Much more into beer than wine, and California is great for good brew.

On the way up north I'm sure we will stop at a couple wineries. Thanks for the tips.

Hello VJers,

What other parts of this state that we must see guys? We'll rent a car at the airport but we'll be there for 3 days only. Any suggestion's appreciated.

If you have the time and looking for a bit of nature...A drive north up the coastal highway (Highway 1) with a return trip

through the highway of the Giants (Giant Redwood Forest) is a nice day trip.

Another,,, good trip if crossing the GoldenGate is to spend part of the day in Sausalito. It is just across the bridge on the right.

Of course,,, Food, Food, Food... China Town, Little Italy, and of course getting a little homesick Daly City is home to lots of Filipinos

including the presense of a Goldilocks.

Also, keep in mind. Depending on where you plan to spend your time... It is very expensive to park around SF and usually quicker and

easier to use public transportation. When traveling on business there we usually rent a car during the weekends when we do the day trips.

And use the subway/trolley/taxi during the week around the Warf and Downtown areas.

Enjoy,

We are just using the car one day so we can drive up to Santa Rosa. The two days in San Fran will be public transport or foot.

Thanks!

Santa Rosa is a nice place. There's a lot of wineries there and some state parks. Windsor is close to Santa Rosa. You might want to visit the Kendall Jackson Winery and the Charles Schulz Air Musem close to 101.


Hokey Smoke!
