I visited San Francisco for the second time this past weekend. I had a great time, though my trip was a lot different from my trip to SF the end of last year (you can read about it ). This time around I felt less like a tourist. I didn't go to Fisherman's Warf or to the Golden Gate Bridge. Instead of going there with an agenda, I decided to just go with the flow and let my California native boyfriend take me for a ride–literally and figuratively. Kevin rented a 2012 Mustang for the weekend and was zipping around town like a little boy with a new toy.
We stayed at the Hilton San Francisco hotel in Financial District, andoverall, I was happy with the hotel. On Saturday morning we walked from our hotel to Caffe Greco for breakfast. We split a scone, almond croissant, chocolate chip waffles, fresh squeezed juice, and coffee in large saucer cups. It was delicious. We also ate outside in one of the “”parklets,”” which I thought was an interesting thing.A parklet is a small urban park, often created by replacing several under-utilizedparallel parking spots with a patio, planters, trees, benches, cafج© tables (Wikipedia). Kevin shared that the several parking spots the city of San Francisco allowed for the creation of parklets caused quite
a stir. It made me enjoy my breakfast on the parklet even more.
After breakfast, we walked around a bit and came across two awesome pieces of street art.
On Sunday we checked out the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. It had some cool pieces, but it isn't nearly as good as the NYC MoMA. Here are some of my favorite pieces featured in the SF MoMA.
