San Francisco: a Fun and Romantic Getaway
With its exciting blend of sights, sounds, tastes, and cultures, San Francisco is something that you and your significant other can definitely enjoy together. You can begin your adventure in downtown Union Square. This wide and beautiful public plaza is located in San Francisco's premier culture, entertainment, and shopping district. Shop to your heart’s content at major department stores like Macy’s, Bloomingdales, and Nordstrom. Have a quick bite at a quaint coffee or check out the various restaurant choices for some serious dining. You could sample classic American foods or sample dishes from around the world, thanks to San Francisco's multicultural population.
If you would like to step into an entirely different community without leaving America, Japantown is the place to be. This predominantly Japanese American neighborhood is sometimes called Little Osaka as the plan is patterned after the city of Osaka in Japan. Like Osaka, Japantown is brimming with colorful samples of Japanese culture most evident in the restaurants and shops and the architecture.
A visit to quirky Lombard Street is not to be missed. The entirety of Lombard Street passes through several hills and neighborhoods, but its climactic dive is located down the slope of Russian Hill which is set at a dangerously steep angle. The tight hairpin turns makes for a picturesque procession of slow-moving cars as descend past some of the city’s most expensive residences. Quite a few television shows and movies were filmed here.
The Marina District is another significant part of the city easily accessible from hotels San Francisco CA visitors prefer. Its famous Fisherman's Wharf offers visitors a wide range of dining choices; the local clam chowder is a must-try. Like Union Square, the Fisherman's Wharf houses an assortment of shops and restaurants. The famous Pier 39 is also located here, where people can admire the Golden Gate Bridge and the infamous Alcatraz from afar.
The Golden Gate Bridge is perhaps San Francisco's most majestic and iconic landmark. This 746 feet high and 90 feet long suspension bridge was opened in May 27, 1937. People staying at romantic hotels in San Francisco can travel to the Golden Gate Bridge as part of Route 101 or hop on a ferry ride with a quick Golden Gate Cruise.
The Golden Gate Bridge is a stark contrast from Alcatraz. This fortress island held some of the country's most notorious criminals until 1963 and promised little chances of escape.
