San Francisco is a wonderful city, that is if you stay away from the Tenderloin section. Our first bad encounter using Airbnb – although not to the fault of anyone other than the shiesty Regency INN! Note, I said INN not hotel. When looking for places to hang our hats on our trip, we aimed for reasonably priced, decent enough neighborhoods, commutable/ walkable to typical touristy attractions and livable accommodations. The Regency turned out to be a dumpy motel/inn (and not the Regency Hotel) with cigarette burn holes in the sheets and no lock on the door in one of the worse neighborhoods of San Francisco. Needless to say, we were on the phone with Airbnb nearly the whole day trying to find new accommodations. We lucked out and and stay with some awesome hosts (who also work for Airbnb) right in the heart of Little Italy and walking distance to Fisherman’s Wharf!
Once we were settled we took in all that San Francisco had to offer, everything from the sea lions on the docks at Fisherman’s Wharf, Gherriadeli Chocolate Factory and riding the ever so famous San Francisco cable cars! My favorite attraction and must see had to be the Golden Gate Bridge. We were told that it could be a challenge and quite a walk to see the bridge by foot but we figured it out, walking over an hour through the Golden Gate Park. The views are unbelievable!
