30 Beckett St, San Francisco, CA 94133, USA
Often, when I feel overly strapped to my desk, hankering for a trip to another land, I stroll into San Francisco's Chinatown. Once I'm off the main drags and into the residential neighborhoods or the commercial streets chockablock with shops...

1170 4th St, San Francisco, CA 94158, USA
Casey's Pizza serves New York-style, locally-sourced, and mostly organic pizzas from a truck. The owner, a East Coaster, spent a lot of time trying to replicate the pizza of his youth and has added the West Coast mandates of local and organic...

Most people come to Napa for the wine, but the Napa Valley is also an amazing place for people who love nature and the outdoors. Napa Valley Adventure Tours offers hiking, biking, and kayaking trips around the Valley. And of course, in addition to...

While summer is universally the most popular time to travel, October and November are, in many ways, the best months to visit San Francisco. The heat of the midsummer sun in the Central Valley of California means fog for much of the coastline...

Golden Gate Park, San Francisco, CA, USA
I have an aversion to hills, especially when riding a bike. This is not ideal, because I live in San Francisco and some days it feels like an entire city of hills. This bike ride is one of my favorites not only because it goes right through the...

982 Market St, San Francisco, CA 94102, USA
The Warfield Theater in San Francisco opened in 1922 as a vaudeville theater, but lives on as a live music venue in current times. Starting with entertainers that included Louis Armstrong and Charlie Chaplin, its prowess lives on with Pearl Jam,...

560 Jackson St, San Francisco, CA 94133, USA
There are a handful of stores in San Francisco that sell quirky and distinctive clothing, jewelry, and homewares. Eden & Eden is one. The brother-and-sister owners stock some vintage pieces and a nice selection of funky jewelry from the U.K. I've...

Presidio, San Francisco, CA, USA
A few blocks east of Goldsworthy's more prominent Spire is this installation of fallen trees snaking through the still standing ones. Wood Line is located within the cypress grove near the intersection of Presidio Boulevard and West Pacific...

375 Valencia St, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA
A key player in the "third wave" coffee movement is Four Barrel Coffee, founded by Jeremy Tooker—who has a particular love for light roasts and the bright, acidic flavors that come with this method. Don’t let that description deter you, though;...

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...
Save Place
Dolores St & 19th St, San Francisco, CA 94114, USA
Mission Dolores Park, aka Delores Park, is one of the most popular parks in San Francisco, especially when the sun is out and the mercury is up. On a sunny weekend, you'll be hard pressed to find a patch of green to plant yourself on, but that's...

One Ferry Building, #23, San Francisco, CA 94111, USA
In the bustling Ferry Building, the Wine Merchant is almost always busy. Judging by the crowds, even Saturday morning is not too early for a glass of wine when you're on vacation (we presume). Sit at the wine bar and watch the crowds drift by. The...

45 Rose St, San Francisco, CA 94102, USA
It seems like an obscure location—an alley behind Market Street—until you realize that it's steps away from Zuni Cafe. Hotel Biron is a comfortable, friendly place to while away a few hours with friends, or to sip a glass while you're waiting for...

2490 3rd St, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA
In fast-changing Dogpatch, Yield is a relative stalwart: It's been around for about eight years, just enough time to see this neighborhood, wedged between Potrero Hill and the waterfront, change dramatically. Yield is a friendly neighborhood wine...

3565 20th St, San Francisco, CA 94110, USA
Once a record store, 20 Spot retains some old-school touches: Shelves that used to house vinyl now hold bottles, and there's likely to be a record spinning on the decks. This little corner space in the Mission, with its friendly staff, serves a...

1116 Folsom St, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA
Terroir is the perfect place for a mellow weeknight drink. The organic (or biodynamic) offerings are always varied and are likely to be something you've never tasted before. The bartenders are knowledgeable and helpful, always willing to pour a...

359 Divisadero St, San Francisco, CA 94117, USA
Vinyl is a coffee shop and wine bar on Divisadero Street in the NOPA neighborhood. On a sunny day, sit by the large windows along the periphery; if the fog is closing in, cozy up at the bar. No matter where you decide to settle down, you can pop...

20 Yerba Buena Ln, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA
Knowledgeable bartenders, a wide range of wine and beer, and tasty, wine-friendly bites make the Press Club a convenient destination for thirsty travelers in or near downtown San Francisco. Just behind the Four Seasons, on Yerba Buena Lane, the...
