Our first official move in our quest for travel was to Foster City, California, near San Francisco. It’s a beautiful area, with many great parks, restaurants and a lovely running trail along the bay. We also spent our weekends exploring as much of San Francisco as we could.

It’s a requirement to get a picture by the Golden Gate Bridge when you’re in San Francisco.

Alcatraz was one our favorite experiences in San Francisco.

I hate audio tours and never do them when I am touring. However, I had heard such incredible things about this one, I had to give it a try…and I absolutely loved it. It’s a must when you’re in San Fran. (Click here for more info.)

The Japanese Tea Garden

The Japanese Tea Garden inside Golden Gate Park is a little off the beaten path, and is a beautiful and relaxing place to visit.

This bridge made for a very interesting climb. Thankfully, I have a very loving husband who will hold my purse and shoes while I very ungracefully tried to get back down.

Fisherman’s Wharf

Fisherman’s Wharf. Quite the experience, and is possibly the most touristy place to visit in San Francisco. I was a big fan of Pier 39 – with all the sea lions!

Mmm…Clam chowder bread bowls. Yum! (Another must in San Fran!)

We also spent some time exploring wine country, while we were in California. Click here to see more on that.

    We are going to San Francisco for Thanksgiving. Did you by chance visit the Cartoon Art Museum? Thoughts? There is a TMNT exhibit that looked neat but that will be closed, so I’m wondering if they have only rotating exhibits or if anything cool that is permanent. Their website isn’t the best.

      The Cartoon Art Museum sounds awesome, Nicole! Unfortunately, we did not visit it while we were in San Francisco. After taking a look at their website and Googling around, it looks as though they might not have their November exhibit released or lined up yet. There are some pretty informative reviews on Yelp, though. If you do visit it, I would love to hear about your experience!
