Memorial Weekend in America’s most European city, 60 years on from the Summer of Love. The squares were full of youngsters picnicking. Golden Gate Park full of families and couples out for a stroll or a cycle.
We stayed airbnb in the desirable Noe Valley area, taking the J line tram into downtown. Joined by Hilary’s sister Stephanie we simply enjoyed being tourists.
Built on 43 hills, this is a city with views. Also a place with charm and elegance. We were surprised how many of the historic buildings survive.
