48 Hours in San Francisco


This past weekend, Brigitte and Becca and I traveled to San Francisco to visit my friend Sarah who was in town for a convention. None of us had ever been to San Francisco before so we embarked on this crazy 48 hour adventure. We tried to fit as many fun things into our schedule as we could. We ended up walking ALOT (about 30,000 steps according to Brigitte’s Fitbit to be exact). Here were some of my favorite spots in San Francisco.

Ghirardelli Square: Located near Fisherman’s Wharf, we took a stroll to Ghirardelli Square. At the square, they had the Original Ghirardelli Chocolate Manufactory. If you are of lover of ice cream, this is a must have. Their hot fudge is to die for. I got the Ocean Beach with Caramel and Hot Fudge, it was the bomb.com.

Alcatraz: Go. If you’re in San Francisco, go. This is a must see attraction. Definitely buy tickets ahead of time because the tours sell out. You get to take a nice ferry ride over to Alcatraz, where you can see views of the entire city. Once on the island you take an audio tour through the prison grounds. There’s so much history on this island and it’s crazy to see the actual location of the prison. If you like history, definitely go check out Alcatraz.

The Butler and The Chef: Brunch is one of my favorite meals, if you couldn’t tell by the name of my blog. This little French bistro is definitely worth the wait. Their food is AMAZING. Everything is so freshly made, and tastes so good. Not to mention they bring you pieces of fudge with your check. It’s SO good.

Dandelion Chocolate: Another fabulous chocolate spot in SF. This place is more for the refined palette, those who like dark and bittersweet chocolate. Brigitte and I went here and ordered basically everything on their menu. Although we weren’t able to finish it all, it was definitely worth the purchase. Also, get their homemade marshmallow, it’s everything.

Tacolicious: For our last meal in SF, we got some Mexican at Tacolicious. There was a huge wait, and it was because the food and drinks were delicious. Their queso and carnitas tacos were my favorite. For those drinkers out there who like a little spice in their life, get the Margarita Picante, it’s muy deliciouso.
