Visiting San Francisco & Monterey this weekend with the boyfriend. We have lots of plans during the daytime – Big Sur, Golden Gate Bridge, Muir Woods, etc. – but nothing planned for the evenings..oops! Please recommend some fun and romantic evening activities for San Francisco & Monterey. We aren't interested in bars or clubs, and we'll have a car. (P.S. - two goals for this trip are to find the best San Fran-style burrito and dungeoness crab.)
I’ve been so excited about our daytime plans that I haven’t made any plans for the evenings. Most things seem to close by 6pm and I’m looking for things to do after dinner. My boyfriend’s fine with winging it, but I’m the type that needs to have a few options lined up. We aren’t interested in bars or clubs, and we'll have a car.
(By the way - yes, I'm searching Yelp and previous AskMefi threads
, but I couldn't find much in terms of things to do after 8pm that don't involve clubs or Fisherman's Wharf).
We’re staying in Monterey for 2 nights at Pacific Grove (next to Lover’s Point Park). During the day, we’re going to Point Lobos and Big Sur. We might visit the Taste of Monterey wine bar, but they close at 6pm. The Aquarium also closes at 6pm. Other than strolling Cannery Row, what are other things to do in Monterey/Pacific Grove/Carmel at night?
We’re staying 2 nights in San Francisco on Lombard St near Webster. Our daytime activities are the Golden Gate Bridge, Muir Woods, Golden Gate Park and maybe the Jejune Center. We want to explore Chinatown – is it better during the day or at night? Any particularly nice places to walk around and explore at night? The boyfriend isn’t interested in Fisherman’s Wharf.
As for food, we want to have some good, San Francisco-style burritos….the kind we can’t get here in Texas. Based on this thread
, Tacqueria Cancun sounds like the place to go. We’re also going to Tartine Bakery, Angkor Wat and Burma Superstar. Where can we get good dungeoness crab? We also want to eat at Greens – is the view better at night or during the day?
Thanks so much!
