The Burbs does SF – Day 1

This weekend I traveled to San Francisco to visit fellow blogger (or as I like to call her, my West Coast Bestie), Sabrina of Sabrina and the City. I can tell you hands down, that there is not another person in SF that loves this city as much as she does. As a result, pal Jessica and I were treated to an unforgettable visit, jam-packed with the very best SF had to offer. Over the next three days, I’ll document our fantastic stay. ย Here is a run down of our first Day.

Day 1
Sabs lives in an area of San Fran called Pacific Heights so we started there and walked down Broadway to ogle the multi-million dollar homes. Apparently, the president was in the area a few weeks ago and held a campaign fund raiser in one of these homes — maybe it was at this $38 million one?

After seeing all these fabulous homes, we ended on the Lyon Street Steps where a lot of people come to run up and down the stairs for a workout. It’s also where we saw our first Heart of San Francisco.

After that we walked down to Lombard Street to see the crookedest street in the world.

We then caught a the cable car from Lombard down to downtown to Union Square (pro tip: if you’re in SF and want to experience the cable car, take it from one of the interior stops as opposed to the end stops in order to avoid the long lines).

In Union Square, we visited the rest of the Hearts and did a little shopping before we headed to our last stop before dinner.

Our last stop, and the most exciting in my opinion, was Alamo Square. Being children of the 80s and growing up with Full House on TGIF, we just had to see the iconic painted ladies on Postcard Row,

and the actual “Full House” house at 1709 Broderick Street about a mile away.

After almost 6 miles of walking, we headed home, showered, and went out to dinner at 620 Jones and then drinks and dancing at Le Colonial. It was a great end to a wonderful first day!
