San Francisco is the hottest place to be right now, don’t you know? So here are the top things you’ve GOT to do while you’re there...
1. Golden Gate Bridge
The Golden Gate Bridge is THE place to be. Opened in 1937, it’s the most iconic landmark in San Francisco. We love it for its incredible views of the river and city (totally Instagrammable). Fill your phone with tons of selfies and make everyone else VERY jealous.
2. Union Square
Hunting for that new handbag? Or the perfect LBD? Union Square is the perfect place to get that shopping spree out of your system. With all the designer stores, dining options and bargains a girl could dream of, it’s worth making a day of it. Ready, steady, shop…
OK, so everywhere has a Chinatown, but San Francisco is home not just to the biggest (outside of Asia), but also the best in the world! Discover the secret alleyways, authentic restaurants and amazing photo opportunities as you surround yourself with dragons, lanterns and temples. And if you don’t want to break the bank, stop here for lunch.
4. Stow Lake
In the heart of Golden Gate Park, Stow Lake is the perfect romantic spot to go boating and admire the greenery and scenery. You may just pass a small waterfall, stone bridge and Chinese pagoda… this is a dreamy day out, if you ask us.
5. Baker Beach
It’s beach time, baby! Baker Beach is San Francisco’s public beach, where you can relax, enjoy the sun and read your book. Oh, and you can see the Golden Gate Bridge from here, too – win, win.
