In order to get to Napa, we had to fly into either Oakland or San Francisco. We chose San Francisco and decided to spend a night there before heading up to Napa.
We had dinner at La Mar Cebicheria Peruana right on San Francisco bay, and it was delicious.
We stayed in the Embarcadero area of San Fran near the Ferry building and Financial District.
Our hotel, the Harbor Court Hotel, was right on the water and had a great view of the Bay Bridge.
Here's a shot of the hotel lobby. The hotel offered complimentary wine and sangria from 5-6pm and cookies and ice cream from 9:30-10:30. Needless to say, I was a happy girl. The Harbor Court Hotel is a Kimpton Hotel, so everything was up to par.
This is an early morning view of the Bay Bridge from our hotel room window. Gorgeous.
Our check-in at Napa was at 4pm so we didn't have a whole lot of time to see the sights of San Francisco, but we tried our best and spent several hours checking out the bay area.
One of the many piers.
All of the boats at Fisherman's Wharf.
The weather was great... a far cry from the heat and humidity here in Florida, and although it was a quick day, we enjoyed San Francisco and want to plan another trip to go back and really see it all. But our main mission was Napa, so we said goodbye to San Francisco and headed north to wine country...
