So now onto the fun part! The destination for this year's annual birthday trip is...
San Francisco and Napa!!
There were some close guesses in the comments last week (Carol's San Diego). We will be heading west to California, adding another state to our map. Although I have been to Los Angeles & San Diego before, Chris has never set foot in the Golden State. Since we both turn 30 this year, we decided to do a little more than a road trip.
One of the best parts about this trip is that we will be meeting up with my life long friend and her husband! C and I have known each other since we were babies - our parents met in Lamaze class when they were pregnant with our older brothers who were born 2 weeks apart. In 2011 we had the joy of being bridesmaids in each other's weddings. We've been talking about planning a trip together ever since our weddings, and finally pulled the trigger for a fun week out west in August. I love the timing because we get to continue our birthday trip tradition AND we get to celebrate C and her husband's 2nd anniversary out there.
Now for some advice! I know that some of you live (or have lived) in San Fran or have traveled to Napa before. I would love any tips/places to see/wineries to visit if you would like to share! We are going to hit some of the big tourist attractions like Alcatraz and the Golden Gate Bridge, but if you have any other spots we should check out or places to eat do share them in the comments! :)
