My lovely fiancee
and I are getting married on September 22nd (yay!), and in the week after that we're going to San Francisco for our honeymoon. We fly in on the 24th and have to leave on the 28th in the afternoon, so we don't have a ton of time.
Part of the reason we're going to San Francisco is that I have relatives up in Kenwood who will let us stay there and tour the wine country for a day or two. We definitely still want to spend a couple of days in the city though, but I'm having trouble planning because it's been a long time since I was last there (and I have never been there as an adult). I've perused some questions like these
, but more current advice (including events going on that week) would be great.
Where should we stay and what's a reasonable price for hotels? For reference, we're both giant nerds and enjoy museums and the like. That said, we still like to go out to cool and interesting bars in the evening, and enjoy walking around and exploring during the day. Chinatown seems interesting and somewhat centrally located - would that be a good place to start?
Which leads me to my second question: what should we do? The only things I have any ideas about right now are going to see the Golden Gate Bridge, going to the Japanese Tea Garden/Botanical Garden in the park, and doing touristy crap at Fisherman's Wharf. Any other suggestions would be really helpful.
Also, any suggestions on where to eat would be great. We're up for pretty much anything and would be especially interested in more authentic Asian food that's more difficult to find where we live in DC.
