Travel Diary: 1 Day in San Francisco


A few weeks ago we had the opportunity to visit the west coast for a family wedding. You may remember reading about the gorgeous fall dress I wore to the event. To make the most of this trip, we decided to add on 1 day to visit San Francisco and 2 days to visit Portland. That’s not a lot of time in either city, but we’re always up for an adventure. Today I’m sharing all of the highlights from 24 hours in San Francisco. Portland travel diary to come!

San Francisco

Here is my picture slideshow of San Francisco. Bare with me this is a really long post.

Fountains in front of the Yerba Buena Gardens.

A pool of water and some tiger lilly’s in the garden.
The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Matisse.

The fountain with the Moscone Center flags in the background and people just enjoying the sunshine.

A carousel I found.
Palm trees!

Cute little boats.

I couldn’t wait…

Ok, so, I officially love Westin hotels. Fresh flowers and fresh scents greeted me as soon as I arrived and a very simple, laid back west coast atmosphere. 

The scent of white tea hit me as soon as I entered my room, and it is now my new favorite scent. There is also a no-smoking policy throughout the hotel, which I can appreciate. Traveling for work, I have had room service at several different hotels, and this definitely has some of the best. I know most people don’t spend a lot of time in their hotels when they travel, but for me, when I travel for work, my room is more than a place to sleep, it is where I work. So, room service is important, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t tried the local cuisine. I will blog about that later. 

One thing I noticed on the girls in San Francisco are these black, straight leg pants. I have been coveting these for a while. I bought this pair of black, straight leg pants at H&M the other day.
