OVERVIEW

Known as the City by the Bay, the picturesque metropolitan sprawl of San Francisco has so much to offer honeymooners, from history and culture to iconic landmarks, delicious food and a buzzing nightlife. The only problem you’ll have on your San Francisco honeymoon is deciding what to add to your itinerary and what will have to be sacrificed until your next visit.

Finding a romantic honeymoon-worthy hotel in the city certainly won’t be an issue, as San Francisco is home to its fair share of accommodation options, including such atmospheric and luxurious hotels as the Argonaut and Hotel Nikko. Whatever your tastes and budget, you are guaranteed to find a hotel to suit your needs.

Deciding what to see and do each day will be a little trickier. San Francisco boasts a number of intriguing cultural and historic landmarks. Guaranteed to be on your bucket list is Alcatraz, the notorious former prison, so make sure you book yourselves onto a tour in order to truly soak up the atmosphere and the history of this remarkable place. Then there is the popular Pier 39 at Fisherman’s Wharf, with its much-photographed sea lion inhabitants, and the Golden Gate Bridge and Golden Gate Park, with its well-manicured grounds and delightful views.

Couples who are keen to indulge in some retail therapy should also head to Union Square, which has plenty of options to satisfy the most enthusiastic of shoppers, and when you’re done ‘shopping til you drop’ why not opt for a scenic meander through Chinatown? Alternatively, if you are keen to soak up some art and high culture, take a tour of some of the city’s fascinating museums. The Legion of Honour is packed to the rafters with mesmerising ancient treasures, while the de Young museum is an inspiring spectacle in its own right thanks to its majestic architecture.

After all that sightseeing you are sure to be feeling peckish, but never fear, San Francisco is home to a plethora of wining and dining venues dishing up alluring flavours from across the globe. If you’d like to enjoy a romantic meal of delicious French food head to charming bistro Café Jacqueline, but if you are fans of fresh seafood then Hog Island is the place to go. Why not share a plate of oysters? They are known for their aphrodisiac properties after all, making them the ideal honeymoon dish.

After a mouthwatering evening meal, if you’re still feeling up for some excitement, change into your clubbing gear and head to SOMA, San Francisco’s vibrant nightlife district, where you can dance the night away with your new spouse. What better way to end a romantic day in the jewel of the Bay Area?
