We could not imagine any other places as romantic as San Francisco and its surroundings. Sweeping ocean vistas, verdant wine country, and charming historic city streets.
If you’re looking for specific ideas to make your perfect romantic weekend, whether it’s for Valentine’s Day or any other special event, check out five favorite romantic things to do in San Francisco.
1) Romantic open door dinner
Who doesn’t love a delicious dinner accompanied by incredible views? No Valentine’s Day would be complete without a romantic dinner with your loved one. Our first recommendation is to make a reservation to dine at Epic Roast House (with new their reformatted fully heated patio and dining room to meet social distancing guidelines) or Waterbar for a five-star seafood experience. At the same time, lovers can gaze upon monumental light sculpture known as The Bay Lights, lighting the Bay Bridge’s western span.
2) Hike on Lover’s Lane
Take your special someone with you off the beaten path and hike through San Francisco’s historic Presidio Park. Open spaces, trails, and inspiring sights provide plenty of opportunities to be alone with your loved one while enjoying the quiet beauty that you can only find at the Presidio.
Steal a kiss on Lover’s Lane and remind the story of the 1860s when the trail became the main route used by the off-duty soldier to walk into San Francisco and meet their sweethearts.
3) See the sunset from Treasure Island and grab a bite in Mersea Restaurant
Take your date off to enjoy the views of the entire San Francisco skyline from across the bay when the sun goes down and have a drink at Mersea Restaurant while enjoying these stunning views.
Mersea, which means “Island Oasis” in Old English, is a unique “container-style restaurant” that offers delicious comfort-casual American food located in the heart of Treasure Island. Ranked top 10 Restaurants in San Francisco on TripAdvisor site, this spot offers you the best skyline views of the city together with a fantastic choice of local beers, wine, spirits, and outstanding food.
4) Have a picnic in Dolores Park and enjoy the views of the city
Enjoy the outdoors of Dolores Park and its famous sights of the financial district. Pack your lunch, bring a case of sweet chocolate, and spend some time in the park as you admire the views of our gorgeous city.
5) Delight yourself in a Wine Country visit
A tour of Napa & Sonoma Wine Country is a different turn on the “bottle of nice wine with dinner component to Valentine’s Day.”
Instead of ordering on your waiter’s suggestion, why not become a wine enthusiast yourself?
Sonoma and Napa are the premium wine grape areas of North America. There are dozens of high profile and independent wineries to visit – not to mention the green scenery perfect for that ideal photo of you and your love.
We recommend you make reservations in advance, so you don’t miss the opportunity to show your love and have the best of your dates. Our preferred places for this select date are Viansa and Artesa Wineries. Check out the pictures underneath to see their amazing terraces with Sonoma and Napa valleys’ unbeaten views, respectively.
