Save Place
Twin Peaks, San Francisco, CA, USA
The best views of San Francisco are from the top of Twin Peaks, the two hills that are located in the geographic center of the city. Only from Twin Peaks can you get a 360-degree view of the entire city. If you are lucky, on a clear day you can...

431 Balboa St, San Francisco, CA 94118, USA
I may move to San Francisco, for the sole reason of being close to Sushi Bistro. Just a few blocks from Golden Gate Park on Balboa Street, the restaurant looks unassuming from the outside. But, once you open the menu, you'll enter a world of...
Save Place
I discovered this Marin Headlands view of the Golden Gate Bridge on one of my very first trips to San Francisco. In my three-plus years living in the Bay Area, I still haven’t found a view to top it. My favorite time to visit is just after sunset,...

600 Guerrero St, San Francisco, CA 94110, USA
With no sign above its unassuming storefront, Tartine is most easily recognized by the line that snakes out its door and down Guerrero Street. People patiently wait for flaky pains au chocolat (the best outside Paris, in my opinion), decadent...

If Chinatown is one of San Francisco’s most historic neighborhoods, continue walking for another ten minutes and you’ll arrive at one of its newest attractions, the Ferry Building. Actually, the building itself is not new, having been completed in...
Save Place
Tahoe City, CA, USA
To obtain the air angels breathe, you must go to Tahoe (Mark Twain). One of the most amazing places on Earth, Lake Tahoe - Try the bike ride around the lake, and if you want to stay in the finest lodge, consider Sunnyside and explore the...
Save Place
138 Emerald Bay Rd, South Lake Tahoe, CA 96150, USA
Leave behind the powerboats roaring around Lake Tahoe and find your bliss by kayaking the sparkling waters of Tahoe’s biggest bay. The water is typically calm here, especially in the morning, so even beginners can have fun. Pick up a rental...
Save Place
Lake Tahoe, United States
Lake Tahoe feels like a place unto itself, which straddles the states of California and Nevada high in the Sierra Mountains. Each community surrounding the lake is as unique as the lake itself with beautiful scenery from every angle. You can ski...
Save Place
Alamo Square, San Francisco, CA, USA
Alamo Square is home of the "Painted Ladies," eclectic musicians, and some of the most incredible views of San Fransisco. The trolleys won't take you all the way there, but cabs are easy to catch. We couldn't have chosen a better way to burn the...
