Guys, I’m in love. Not with a man, but with the city of San Francisco. My life here has totally turned around and it is just so, so good. Every weekend is bursting with great new things to do, people to see, and avocados to eat. Heck, even my weekday adventures in Sausalito after work have been pretty spectacular. It’s pretty safe to say that I am very happy about my move to San Francisco, so now that I’ve been here for two months, I feel like I can share a few of my favorite adventures.
My first San Francisco pick is Fort Funston. I heard about this not-so-hidden spot via Victoria of SF Girl By Bay on Design*Sponge. Previously a military lookout point, this dog-friendly spot offers an easy hike, gorgeous beaches, and one of the best views of the Pacific I’ve ever seen. Noodle and I went for a Saturday romp and, let me tell you, I have never seen him more excited.
Another great spot that’s more commonly known is Twin Peaks. I went with Danielle and Wil of Danfredo Photography when they got here with my car (more on that here). If you want the ultimate view of the city, this is the place to go. It is absolutely breathtaking. Stay for sunset, but be sure to pack some warm layers because it gets very windy.
If you’re in the mood for vintage shopping, plan a try on the first Sunday of the month to hit up the Alameda Point Antiques Faire. Technically not in San Francisco, this treasure is absolutely worth the trip to Oakland, just be sure to get there early. In true hoarder spirit, I scored all kinds of goodies: a mid-century modern desk chair, 5 vintage dresses, stacks of books, and all sorts of sweet tchotchkes. Oh, and they have food trucks! Check out the taco truck and the mini donuts truck for sure.
I’ve had a few other random adventures, too. I went on an impromptu sailing trip with a coworker around the bay at sunset. Talk about amazing. It was one of those moments where I was just so overwhelmed by the beauty of the land and sea.
