A Magical Bay Area Day
Liza Sweeney

Hot Air Balloon Ride
Start your morning right with a hot air balloon ride over Sonoma County's beautiful wineries and landscapes. This one is probably best enjoyed in the spring or fall months, when the air is clear and it's not too hot!
Nopa Brunch
For delicious cocktails and superb food, have brunch at Nopa on Divisadero St. It's the ultimate brunch experience, but reservations can be tough to come by! Be sure to book ahead.
Baker Beach
Baker Beach has breathtaking views of the Northwest Bay and of the Golden Gate Bridge. The water might be chilly, but it's still fun to take of your shoes and dip your toes in!
Dinner at Foreign Cinema
The food is fantastic at Foreign Cinema; don't skip out on the oysters! They play a film every night at sundown, so that's the ideal time to go. Get a table by the wall and you'll have access to an old-fashioned box (just like at a drive-in) for listening to the movie!
Local Edition
With a jazz-age vibe and jazz-age cocktails to boot, Local Edition is the perfect place to get your night started. My particular favorite is the bloody mary, which has a pho broth base!
Yoshi's San Francisco
Nothing caps a night in San Francisco off right quite like attending a jazz show at Yoshi's! Grab a cozy table in the corner with your significant other or dance up close with friends. Either way, their sushi is a necessary late-night snack!
