B and I spent 3 days in the Bay Area and had a GREAT time. I’d been there before, to visit my roommate Caitlin (who now lives in Denver – remember when I visited her a few months ago?) but never spent too much time sightseeing, so exploring the area with B was awesome. And as we tend to do on vacations, we spent most of our time walking around, running around and exploring the city by foot as much as possible. Here’s what we ended up doing:
We stayed in Union Square, which was perfect. Our hotel even had a free sherry and tea happy hour each night which we took advantage of.
Lunching in Sausalito
Driving down Lombard Street

Loving the free chocolate sample at Ghirardelli Square – and then enjoying an awesome salted caramel hot cocoa
Hiking around the Haight, including up the famous Full House hill/park
Climbing up Coit Tower and catching the incredible views of the city and the Bay
Dining in Chinatown!
Tasting beers at the 21st Amendment and then watching a Giants Game – and a win in Extra Innings!
And that was just one full day (well 1.5ish days). Yup, we do it big and walked A TON (in addition to our training runs) to see as much as we could around the city. Stay tuned for San Fran, part two!
