First stop, the pier for calm chowder.
I think our next trip, we’ll do the Alcatraz tour.. I just didn’t feel like it would be appropriate for Rylie.
But Rylie did enjoy watching all of the seals
I had heard about Samovar Tea Lounge in passing but I wasn’t expecting too much. Boy oh boy was this place a gem! I LOVED this little lounge. First of all, the outdoor seating area has the most beautiful view of water fountains and rows of planted flowers/plants. The tea that is served is high quality and the food is yum. Definitely a nice spot to check out!
Took the cable car to Union Square for a little shopping in the city.
We hiked to Kirby Cove to check out this amazing view of the golden gate bridge from the beach. It was gorgeous. The swing is a little scary but I definitely recommend trying it to capture an instagram worthy photo. Just to note, the hike down is about .8miles. It’s pretty easy but hiking back up .8miles is a little tough, especially on a hot day. If you have a little one, I definitely recommend bringing a stroller.
We went to Stem Kitchen which I definitely recommend. The food is sooooo delicious! I LOVED the cauliflower salad! We enjoyed a juicy Cali Burger and Pizza. Keep in mind their menu changes constantly. I loved sitting on the back patio sipping my wine. They have a beautiful garden you can walk through and take photos.
Ferry Market was the place I was most looking forward to because everyone was hyping it up around me… I think because of that I was a little underwhelmed. It’s a cool place with little gift shops and food vendors. I did very much enjoy my avocado toast and ice cream!
Chinatown was a fun place for us to walk through. We didn’t stop and eat anywhere but we did pick up a few souvenirs at the gift shops.
Japantown for Belly Good Crepes.
On our last morning before we headed to the airport we took a quick detour to Mr. Holmes Bakehouse for their famous cruffins! YUMMY!
