Feeling refreshed after my first trip to San Francisco, and wow, what a great city. It was quite the experience traveling with a puppy but we stayed at a great dog friendly hotel a block from Union Square, Hotel Metropolis. We were only there a short amount of time but I fell in love with the culture on Haight street, so many fun vintage shops and cafes, if you're ever there on a Tuesday grab a burger at Rosamunde's Grill, but for the full experience take it next door to Toronado's for refreshments. I think I could live happily in Golden Gate Park for the rest of time, and I think next time I visit I will make sure to walk through the Botanical Gardens. If you can plan it right the best place to see the Golden Gate Bridge is from the Hawk Hill look-out, but timing is everything! Go in the evening closer to sunset, the bridge will be lit beautifully we made the mistake of going in the morning so the sun wasn't on our side but still a great view! If you've never been I would definitely recommend a trip to the bay area, I had a blast, and here's a glimpse..
