Romantic Things to Do in San Francisco
There are more ways to see San Francisco than you can count, but some are undeniably romantic, from Champagne cruises to private tours customized just for you. If you’re visiting the City by the Bay with that special someone, here are a few ideas to explore with your sweetheart.
Cruise (or Fly Above) the Bay
Sip bubbly while cozied up to admire views of the shimmering city skyline from the deck of a yacht or catamaran. Options include dinner with dancing or a private sail at sunset. Being on the water is romantic enough, but soaring over the Golden Gate on a seaplane flight is unparalleled.
Sightseeing Made for Two
See all the highlights aboard a vintage vehicle with a dedicated guide, then catch a cable car followed by dinner for two. Alternatively, the Rose Garden at Golden Gate Park is ideal for strolling hand in hand. Hop on a Segway and set the pace, making your way to Ocean Beach for the sunset.
Cuisine and Craft Cocktails
San Francisco's culinary offerings really couldn’t get any better. You won’t go wrong with a prix-fixe menu at a top-rated restaurant or a food tour that introduces you to various tastings—and neighborhoods. Get acquainted with the cocktail scene, too. A small group keeps the atmosphere intimate.
Share a Sundae at Ghirardelli Square
Chocolate isn’t just for Valentine’s Day. Local chocolatiers and artisan bakeries throughout the city make boutique creations daily. Ghirardelli Square is a San Francisco landmark, known by chocolate lovers worldwide. Share a sundae with your sweety and taste a variety of colorfully wrapped bites at the Original Ghirardelli Ice Cream & Chocolate Shop.
