Weekend Getaways- San Francisco

Marcos is a California boy and when he moved from San Francisco, he left part of his heart there. We go to the bay area several times a year to get our west coast fix.  This fall, we rented this Airbnb in the mission. The mission is our favorite place to stay because you can walk to everything. You walk down the street and look at the neighborhood’s world famous murals, get the BEST tacos, and there is always some new place to get a mixologist to shake up a cocktail.

Mission San Francisco

All I wanted to do on this trip was walk through Golden Gate Park to the ocean, eat dim sum, and try some new restaurants.  We ate brunch at Tartine Bakery, walked through Golden Gate Park to the ocean, and stopped for Green Tea at the Japanese Gardens half-way through the park. Also, I never noticed there were Buffalo in the middle of the park! We had dinner at Thai Farmhouse Kitchen and crazy good pre-dinner cocktails at Range.

I learned on the trip to wear good shoes because I chose cute ones and my feet were tortured on those hills.

  1. Some well-traveled friends of ours recommended the Columbus Motor Inn (1075 Columbus Avenue
    San Francisco, CA 94133, phone: (415) 885-1492). We stayed there with the kids for a week. Not a luxury place by any means, but the location was very convenient, the room was reasonably big for a family of 5, cost was quite reasonable. That’s hard to come by in in big cities these days.
