STS TRAVELS// San Francisco

Hello friends! So I want to start a new little series of posts called STS TRAVELS. These posts will be about our travels, places we love, restaurants we are obsessed with, basically anything you would want to know about different places we have visited {I may even do our favorites right here in AZ}. They won't be super frequent, but whenever we go anywhere cool I'll be sure to share with you!

If you follow me on social media, I'm sure you saw that we spent a week in San Diego + ended our trip up north in San Francisco. Every year we look forward to our family vacation in SD, this year for Jeff's birthday we decided to fly to SF, see a Giants game + explore. We haven't had a vacation like that - just us two - since our honeymoon. We had SO much fun. Here are some snapshots of our trip + places we loved.
 Airport essentials {not pictured - headphones lol}
Fisherman's Wharf - we had the funniest ride. Long story short, we had been waiting for one of the cable cars for probably 30 min when a Ritz Carlton limo pulls up. A guy with a strong New York accent offered to take us to fisherman's wharf for $5 each! Us along with another couple jumped it...lets just say it was a wild ride! Luckily the other couple was SO sweet + ended up chatting with them trying to ignore our limo driver yelling into his phone.

Boudine bread bowls - to die for!
Alcatraz - we didn't have time to tour it, but it is definitely on our list for next time.
Ghirardelli Square - we didn't get any chocolate but we did find a beer garden :)  

Buena Vista - MUST TRY! These little glasses are filled with delicious Irish Coffee. Lets just say these bad boys helped me walk up the biggest hill in SF.  

Lombard Street - after walking up the biggest hill in the history of ever....we made it to another hill but this one was zig-zaggy!

My cute hubby riding the cable car!

Cesarios - The yummiest Italian restaurant we found for dinner a few blocks from our hotel {we stayed at Park 55 in Union Square} 

AT&T Park! 

We met the nicest couple at the game that were sitting by us. They gave us a ton of suggestions for sight seeing + restaurants.

Golden Gate Bridge - it was AMAZING!  

***Not pictured - after seeing the Golden Gate Bridge {which we Ubered - such a sweet Uber driver} to Pier 39 + walked around. We really wanted to go to the Italian District because we had heard great things about it so we Ubered - again- for dinner!

Calzones - It was the cutest authentic pizza place in North Beach

After dinner we realized we were about a block away from China Town. Since the sun set so late it was still rather bright out so we didn't actually realize it was already 9pm. Note to self - don't walk through China Town when it is closed... 

Dragon's Gate - Although almost everything was closed, it was still fun to sight see.

Mr. Holms Bakery - ...need I say more. SO YUMMY! 

 Painted Ladies - aka houses from Full House aka not the real house they used but was in the intro...you get the picture. I had to see them though! They were adorable.

We truly had so much fun. I am so lucky to have married my best friend. Where is the next place we should go?!
