Natural Bridges State Park Santa Cruz California

When we traveled to San Francisco, we did end up taking a day to drive down the coast a little bit. It is worth the trip, and if you do go, you absolutely have to go to the Natural Bridges State Park. Scientists believe that the arches in the park were formed over a millionContinue reading “Natural Bridges State Park Santa Cruz California”

Lands End Park San Francisco

  Typically, when we are traveling somewhere new, we are on the move (quite literally). At the beginning of the planning process, we usually make a list of all of the unique attractions that are part of the history of an area, and then decide which ones we really want to visit. Since we areContinue reading “Lands End Park San Francisco”

Pier 39 San Francisco (A Great Place To See Sea Lions!)

We live in the Philadelphia area in Pennsylvania and absolutely love the beach. There are a couple months (mostly July and August) that are great for swimming and we usually go to the Jersey Shore. On all of our trips going “Down The Shore” as locals in Philly call it, I have never seen aContinue reading “Pier 39 San Francisco (A Great Place To See Sea Lions!)”

Why I Recommend Visiting The Marine Mammal Center In Sausalito California

  If you are in the Sausalito area in California, I highly recommend a trip to the Marine Mammal Center.

Japanese Tea Garden San Francisco

  In San Francisco, there is actually the oldest public Japanese Tea Garden in the United States. It was originally in an exhibit within the 1894 Midwinter International Exposition. After the exposition left, the creator, landscape architect Makoto Hagiwara maintained the garden and became a caretaker of the property. He was known to have putContinue reading “Japanese Tea Garden San Francisco”

Cable Car Museum San Francisco

  For years, before I had traveled to the Bay Area, I imagined that cable cars lined the streets. It may have been a particular rice commercial that had first enabled me to have this vision. If you grew up in the nineties, I think you know what treat I am referring to! Once weContinue reading “Cable Car Museum San Francisco”

A Journey To Yosemite

  Yosemite was on my mind a lot even before we got there. It has always been one of those places we always wanted to go to, and luckily it is not too far away from San Francisco (where our hotel was.) There are different restrictions depending on weather or the time of the year,Continue reading “A Journey To Yosemite”

Twin Peaks Overlook San Francisco

  When we get to a city, one of the first things we generally will do is get a feel for the layout of the place. In San Francisco, we decided on the “Painted Ladies Tour Company” to get more interesting vantage points. Our guide was very knowledgeable and gave us in depth perspectives onContinue reading “Twin Peaks Overlook San Francisco”
