In July of 2007, my husband and I drove to San Francisco for a little getaway with just the two of us. At the time, our children were 6, 4, and not quite a year old.
On the first day of our vacation we used the San Francisco CityPass to take a cruise around San Francisco Bay. The rest of the day we spent down on the wharf exploring and eating.
This is possibly my favorite picture from the entire vacation. The Golden Gate Bridge:

We didn’t want to deal with parking, so we took the cable car everywhere downtown, which was really fun! Even though at one point my sandal fell off into the depths of the machinery of the cable car when I got on. I’m not sure how, but my husband was able to retrieve it for me, and it was only a little bit greasier than my other shoe.

We always get ice cream at Ghirardelli Square whenever we are in San Francisco! It’s a must!
One of our neighbors told us to check out The Blue Mermaid on Fisherman’s Wharf for their corn chowder. We did, and we approve!
