Well, I am officially 39 days away from 40, and I still have 39 things I’ve never done before to post. Great timing!! (Not really, it’s actually the redemption of a
slacker mom of 3 kids who are 3 and under)
So, let’s see if I can do it. One post a day. 39 more things I have never done before. 40 by 40( also known as a new local’s guide to experiencing the Bay Area (inexpensively))…
We have lived in the Bay Area for over a year, and have taken several guests to San Francisco. However, one thing Reggie and I realized is that we would often tour San Francisco, driving past landmarks and attractions, but not really experience it. So, Reggie and I decided that our first overnight outing away from the children (we have children!!! – plural) would be a trip to San Fran. A quick 35 minute, $4.10/per person trip on the train (which was much calmer than fighting the traffic, looking for parking and paying for gas, parking and a $5 toll) and we arrived at our destination- Hyatt Regency San Francisco – Embarcadero, with a view overlooking the bay and Ferry Building. For those who have doubted or shied away from “discount” hotel sites because “you never know what you’re going to get”, you’re right. You don’t. But, we decided it was only one night, and since we could select the area and grade/star we wanted, we decided to take a chance. Found this on Hotwire.com. Half price.
Yep, I’m a believer.
