Scenic first trip to San Francisco 🌁

Visiting San Francisco (and California) for the first time was just incredible. I flew in with my husband for a work party, but we stayed the weekend to explore more on our own.

As a visual person, I especially admired how much design there was to take in. We spent the week walking around, riding transit, and exploring the different neighborhoods. I love San Francisco's remarkable design touches, including its architecture and scenic landscapes.

Like other metropolises, SF feels dazzling, but there's a unique charm to it I can't quite put my finger on. I'm very much looking forward to more trips to this west coast city!

My husband and I marveled at the gingerbread houses on display at the Ferry Building. Our favorite was the California Mid-Century Modern display, so clever!
Photos from the 2021 Inkling Holiday Party held at Urban Putt. The mini-golf course was unlike anything I’ve seen!

On Saturday, we rode a ferry in to Sausalito per a suggestion from a co-worker. The sun was warm and lovely outside!
Sausalito is a secluded bayside getaway right outside of San Francisco. We had a wonderful time exploring the town’s eclectic shops and restaurants.
We saw Redwoods at Muir Woods which was very impressive!
Ending the trip with this view of the Bay Bridge—I had a blast visiting SF for the first time!
