City Crush :: San Francisco

Hey everyone!  I hope you all had a fantastic new year.  I spent time in Arizona soaking up the warm sun with family and friends.  It was a nice change from the cold of the bay area and it was an amazing time.

I'm starting a new series - "City Crush."  I'm picking one city a week and will showcase places to stay, where to eat, things to do and some fun finds.  I thought this would be appropriate because I'm constantly searching for the best destinations for my client at my day job.

So without further ado...first up is San Francisco.  I know - super appropriate because this is not only where I live, but a very popular destination.  I would love to know your thoughts and if you have a city that you are thinking about visiting - let me know and i'll add it to the City Crush list.

City Crush :: San Francisco

Places to Stay
Hotel Vitale, sits along the Embarcadero across from the Bay
The Clift Hotel, located in the heart of Union Square
Fairmont San Francisco, a historic beauty that sits atop Nob Hill

Where to Go
The Ferry Building, with loads of restaurants and farmers market
Union Square, a mini shopping mecca
Golden Gate Bridge, for a bike ride or stroll

Where to Eat
Perbacco, Italian that is out of this world 
Presido Social Club, comfort food and cocktails with a twist
Gotts Roadside, for the best burgers and milkshakes

Can't Miss Fun Finds
Smitten Ice Cream, so many unique flavors that one scoop won't be enough
Miette, a bakery that you will want to have at least one of everything
Blue Bottle Coffee, amazing and authentic coffee


  1. Such a great idea to feature cities!! San Francisco looks so beautiful!!

  2. Oh boy! These are going to be fun posts.

  3. LOVE this city! Thanks for a great review! My husband and I went to San Fran for our babymoon. Nothing like getting a workout climbing hills at 21 weeks!
    We stayed at the Fairmount on Nob Hill. Stunning hotel. We also ate at a local spot called Nob Hill Cafe. Best food ever. It was so good we had to go back twice for the cheese tortellini!
    Looking forward to other reviews!

  4. My husband and I are going to New York City this April for the 1st time, and I would LOVE to hear your input before we go so I can start planning:)

  5. Absolutely Shannon. NYC is one of my favorite stomping grounds. It will be up in a couple of weeks. Every Tuesday is City Crush day. :)
