Tomorrow morning bright and early I’m headed to San Francisco for a short of mother/daughter getaway. My husband will be along for work though so we get some great one-on-one time with our nine year old.
It will be her first time on a plane (plane tickets aren’t exactly budget friendly you know!) and our first time alone for more than an hour or so in well, a long, long time. We did something similar for my now 13 year old, so we are planning to make this a tradition in our family. Each kiddo will get a getaway with one or both parents for a week around age 8 or 9. The little dude can hardly wait.
The plan is to use a CityPass to get into some major attractions (including Alcatraz Island), and take it from there. We may plan a day trip to Muir Woods since it’s such a magical place.
I also plan to eat my way around the city with her at some budget friendly restaurants. She’s my little foodie, so we’re excited to try some of the amazing cuisine San Francisco has to offer.
Mostly I’m excited to see her impression of my favorite place to visit, and just be.
Have a recommendation for something we should do, see, experience or dine at while in San Francisco- let me know in the comments!
