Yosemite National Park is one of the most stunning destinations in the United States. But where should you stay during your visit? We’ve found the BEST place to stay just outside of the entrance of Yosemite National Park. And, spoilers, there are UNLIMITED S’MORES. Yes, you read that right.
Redwoods. Vineyards. Mountain towns nestled in pine trees. Scenic coastal views. Otters. Sea lions. Ponies, for some reason? Fresh oysters. It kinda sounds like I’m describing a bunch of different locations, doesn’t it? Nope: I’m describing one small destination in Northern California, located just a couple of hours north of San Francisco. It’s the PERFECT romantic weekend getaway from San Francisco!
This is the story of our very first hiking disaster: the first time we ever attempted to casually complete a hike only for it to go horribly, terrible, very very wrong. Learn from our mistakes, laugh at our stupidity, and learn what to do if you find yourself bawling on the edge of a cliff miles away from civilization. But the real moral of the story here is never listen to Jeremy
when it comes to hiking.
Don’t call it Frisco. The fog is named Karl. You can be naked in public. There’s a herd of bison on the park. There are so many weird, unique things about San Francisco that totally threw me when I moved to this odd little microcosm, expecting to find some kind of cross between New York and Los Angeles (lol, no). I could not have been more unprepared for the culture shock I experienced: San Francisco is a city unlike any other in the United States. So I thought I’d take a stab at depicting this amazing place in the only way I know how: with a mildly helpful guide to random stuff nobody tells you about San Francisco.
Paso Robles, California is the Central Coast’s answer to Napa. But there’s so much more than just world-class wine: there are also spirit distilleries and craft breweries galore, plus an incredible local food scene. I’m not going to lie: we went full lush in Paso Robles. It’s the booze tourist’s dream destination! Here’s where to get your drink on, and what to eat in between delicious tastings.
We’re San Francisco coffee snobs. Like, if it isn’t single-origin specialty coffee roasted to absolute perfection and brewed to order using a system of convoluted scientific-looking objects made out of glass and wood that takes at least 15 minutes longer than necessary to create, we just won’t drink it. We asked a local barista friend for his list of the 10 best coffee shops in San Francisco that are up to our snobby standards. Bonus FREE map included!
