The writer Mark Twain once supposedly wrote: “the coldest winter I ever spent, was summer in San Francisco.” But despite its changeable northern California climate, the City by the Bay is one of the world’s great metropolises. Sprawling around the gleaming expanse of San Francisco Bay, the gold that came down from the hills during the rushes of the 1800s made the city’s fortune. These days, though, you don’t need the boom and bust wallet of a gold miner to afford a stay in ‘Frisco. The city’s selection of boutique hotels cater for all budgets and all tastes.
San Francisco offers couples or families a rich tapestry of experiences and flavours. You can hang out with the seals at a restaurant down at Pier 39; or find your inner hippies and go hang out in the Haight-Ashbury. For romance, you can ride any streetcar you desire, or drive up the coast to Sausalito, ground zero for the seventies rock star lifestyle made famous by the likes of Fleetwood Mac. Down in Golden Gate Park, you and your partner can get that iconic Instagram selfie with the bridge behind you; or roam for hours up through the colourful suburbs on the undulating streets of San Francisco.
