Set Sail on the San Francisco Bay
Board the Freda B in Sausalito Harbor Yacht for an excursion around some of the most iconic sites in the San Francisco Bay. The classic tall ship, built to resemble a coastal schooner from the mid 1800s, takes you on a whimsical journey through the bay as you catch glimpses of the Golden Gate Bridge, Angel Island, Alcatraz, and San Francisco skyline. A deck bar will be serving an assortment of beverages including local craft beer, wine, and special Valentine’s Day hot drinks like Baileys hot coffee and Peppermint Schnapps hot cocoa. Dress warm and bring a blanket to share aboard the two hour trip. Visit the Freda B for tickets and more information.
Take a Walking Tour of San Francisco at Night
Discover the magic and romance of San Francisco at night with a walking tour around the city. Departing from Pier 7 in the Embarcadero, the tour covers about three miles of twinkling city streets. See the largest rooftop patio and gardens in San Francisco, Chinatown, Grace Cathedral, and maybe have time for a stop at the Top of The Mark for sweeping views of the city. The walking tour is going all out on Valentine’s Day with food and drinks at Jones or Mikkeller Bar and an optional stop at Pandora Karaoke Bar.
