Rainy Night in San Francisco

I’ve been to San Francisco a couple of times, but my favorite trip by far was my high school senior class trip. We thought we were oh so cool because we were the first class to go farther than New York City and, therefore, *fly* to our destination. The trip out was a blast, since we had about half the plane in two planes, but my plane was late getting in. I don’t really remember the reason, but it was dark out when we arrived. We were starving, so my best friend and I went out with some of the guys to find dinner. It started *pouring*, and we had no idea where we were going, but we didn’t care. We thought it was hilarious that we were out late at night running through the streets of San Francisco trying to find dinner. That is definitely one of my best memories.

We saw a lot of touristy things during that week in San Fran (including the shooting of The Wedding Planner — why oh why couldn’t I have been in the group that actually met Matthew McConaughy??), but I still want to go back. We obviously have to so we can hit the Giants stadium in our quest to see all the Major League ballparks (I wish I could remember the name of it, but they all sell out their names so often I can’t keep up). Plus, I’d like to take one of the San Francisco tours there like the one from Trusted Tours and Attractions. I know they’re really touristy, but I’ve always wanted to do that in one of the big cities to make sure I see all the landmarks. I wanted to go on one the last time we were in New York so we could see things like the Metropolitan Museum of Art, but we just didn’t get a chance to. Plus, their online travel guides and newsletters could probably really help me plan a great trip. And, Trusted Tours and Attractions is offering the chance to win a $150 to Magellan’s, which is a travel supply company, just for signing up for their newsletter. That could definitely go toward a new set of luggage…:)

    If you ever make it out here, I can be your tour guide! I could show you the other awesome places in the city that you can’t see on the guided tours. I really do hope that you can get out here someday soon!

    We get dibs on taking you guys to Angel’s Stadium if you haven’t been yet. Or whatever it is called this week, LOL…YOu should’ve seen the drama when they changed their team name. Mind you, they’re not even close to L.A. but that’s a rant for another day. They have the worst stadium food ever but the seats are reasonable.

    That would be AT&T Park at the moment. 😉

    Alcatraz is awesome – even if it is touristy – I still love it!
