Travel: San Fransisco

Over the Thanksgiving long weekend, we went to San Fransisco. It was my first time there and I just loved the look of it…the store fronts, old signs, trolleys, and cool neighbourhoods.
The weather was that perfect sunny California weather I dream about, and I learned that October is the best time to go because it’s the peak of their best summer weather. The weekend couldn’t have been more action packed — America’s cup was happening, it was fleet week, there was a big football game, a blue grass music festival, a parade in Little Italy, AND President Obama was staying at our hotel!! True story. We didn’t see him, but everything was on crazy lock down. Security guards everywhere. It was so interesting to see.
A great Italian restaurant we went to was Delfina that I highly recommend, and we ate delicious sushi and Mexican at random spots. China Town and Little Italy were highlights, and I especially loved North Beach area. It just had a really cool vibe. One thing I would NOT recommend, is going only for a weekend. It’s too far from Toronto to go for 3 days, and the worst decision I made was taking the red eye home. Not glam. A few pics…
