Last week this guy and I celebrated our 20 year anniversary. We were able to swing a trip to San Francisco... by ourselves. This was our first trip sans kids ever. That's right we never had a honeymoon thanks to me starting a new job two days after our wedding. This trip was huge for us and we had so much fun. I will be sharing our trip over the next few posts. What we liked, what we didn't and things I would recommend.
We flew out early Tuesday morning and were there before noon. It was too early to check into our hotel so we checked our abgs and set off to find some food, get our city passes and explore. I was planning on getting our city passes before we left, but totally spaced it. We decided to go with them because they had the transportation and a few museums we were interested in.
We found a close place to eat and then set out to Fisherman's wharf where we could buy our passes. We walked up and down Lombard street on our way.
We were able to buy our passes. Do some souvenir shopping and also visit the Aquarium of the Bay. It was on the pass and we were there so we went. If I had to pay for it separately, I wouldn't have gone. I don't think it would have been worth it. The aquarium at the California Science Academy was much better.
After a few hours, we went back to our hotel, freshend up a bit and went out to eat. We stayed at Hotel Kabuki in Japantown. It was a wonderful hotel. I didn't take any pictures of it though. It was close to Filmore Street which has a variety of restuarants. We went to eat at Inferno Pizza. Ugh. Overpriced and not so great.
To be honest, the first day was hard for me. I was tired and missed my kids.
In the next post, I will tell about our trip to Golden Gate park and The California Science Academy.
