48 HOURS IN SAN FRANCISCO

 

 

 

On our last California vacation, we had 48 hours in San Francisco before heading over to Monterey, California. San Francisco is a beautiful and busy city. There is so much to do! Here are a few ways we were able to maximize our short time at San Francisco.

 

1) We booked our hotel stay at through American Express Fine Hotels & Resorts. By using our Amex we got a room upgrade upon check in, we extended our stay by receiving late check out at 4pm and early check in at 11am, free breakfast for 2, free Wifi and a $100 credit.

 

2) We booked our room at Taj Campton Place, and our stay was beyond excellent. The service is amazing, our room was gorgeous. This hotel is located withing walking distance to Union Square, Cable Cars, Alcatraz, Chinatown, Fisherman’s Wharf, and Golden Gate Bridge. A car is not needed and helped get to all of the sites quickly.

DAY 1

In these 48 hours in San Francisco, we were able to visit Ferry Building Marketplace, Union Square shopping area, Christmas tree Display, Fisherman’s Wharf, Golden Gate Park, and even had time for a quick work out at the gym.

During our 48 hours in San Francisco, we did get a lot accomplished and did not feel rushed. Upon arriving at SFO from Miami, Fl, we picked up our rental car and headed straight to the hotel. We checked in, dropped off our luggage and walked over to The Ferry Building Marketplace for lunch and sight seeing.

At The Ferry Building Marketplace, we did our sightseeing and customary selfies before getting in line at Hog Island Oyster Company Restaurant. At first sight of the long line, I actually wanted to find a different choice for lunch, with a shorter line, but after seeing the delicious plates of food and the smile on the customers as they took their first bites, I opted to stand in line. It was a great thing we decided to wait. The line moved quickly and the food iwas amazing.

After lunch we did catch a quick Uber to Union Square, and of course that also was complimentary. As American Express provides all Platinum members a $15 free Uber credit monthly. At Union Square we visited Neiman Marcus. It is such a gorgeous store. We did our shopping and headed to see the Christmas Tree display at Union Square.

The Christmas tree is gorgeous and there is also an ice skating rink right next to it. They play beautiful holiday music while you ice skate. The perfect way to get into the holiday spirit. After taking pictures and spending sometime soaking it all in we headed to the hotel to shower and get ready for our special dinner at Michelin-starred restaurant Campton Place.

NIGHT 1

The following day we woke up, had a quick work out in the hotel’s roof top gym and had our complimentary breakfast at the hotel. We then went to the Golden Gate Park. The park is gorgeous, we spend a few hours at the Japanese Tea Garden. A must for anyone visiting San Francisco.

Since we did have a $100 credit at the hotel, we returned to the hotel and had lunch at The Campton Bistro. The lunch was as amazing as our previous night’s dinner. We also had cocktails at the bar, all compliments of Amex. We then checked out and headed to our next stops, Monterey and Napa where we spend an amazing week.

ON THE RETURN TRIP BACK TO SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA

DAY 2

On our return back to San Franciso Airport, we had a few hours before our flight. We finished our San Francisco vacation by visiting the famous Fishermen’s Wharf. We stopped at Pier 39 to visit the cute Sea Lions. Visited the Wharf, did a bit of shopping and exploring and had lunch at the famous Fog Harbor Fish House.

You can visit San Francisco in 48 hours, there is so much to do and see. We do think that our American Express card helped us make the best of our vacation. If you do not have an American Express and are a traveler, we recommend that you apply for one. You can earn 60,000 Membership Rewards points after you use your new Platinum Card to make $5,000 in purchases within the first 3 months of Card Membership.

Am I the only one obsessed with zucchini? We use low carb zucchini to replace pastas, bake cakes and breads, for salads, to make soups, sauteed, you name it we’ve replaced it with zucchini. We do not have a preference, we eat it cooked, baked, sauteed, fried and even raw. If you have not have replaced a starchy pasta with zucchini you are missing out on a great thing! Zoodles are the next best thing to coffee!

Healthy Coleslaw recipe

 

 

There are times where we are just to busy too make anything from scratch. Ordering out is not very healthy either. At times like this, we like to have pre-cut veggies or pre-made salads on hand . This way we can whip up a salad in minutes. Most grocery store chains carry organic pre-made salads. They do sometimes contain unhealthy dressings or add on’s. We normally do not use those. We like to create a quick dressing and add our own TLC to the salad. This popular and easy to make healthy coleslaw recipe uses a bag of organic broccoli slaw and we added our own spin.

RAW KEY LIME PROTEIN CUP CAKE PIES

 

We are so excited about this Raw Key Lime Pie Protein Cup Cake Pie Recipe!! Ever since we visited Key West last year and had a slice of Key Lime Pie we knew we had to recreate a healthier version of this creamy and delicious dessert! As we know the original version of the Key Lime Pie is so rich and sweet but also loaded with unwanted calories and high in sugar. Our recreated version has added protein and uses a sugar free syrup as a sweetener. The sweetener can easily be exchanged for coconut sugar or Stevia if desired. This raw key lime pie is a no bake recipe and it is a great guilt free dessert!
