Like several others here at CG, I'm getting married in january and going on our Honeymoon right afterward. Right now we're planning on a NYC honeymoon so that we could see some museums, a play and walk around the city and take it all in.

However, I was just thinking of some other places to go and SF popped in my head. So I was just wondering if the residents of the fair city could give some good insight.



Oh and if I goto NYC, I expect to get a lot of good restaurant suggestions from the locals.

Of course if you go to NYC you have to let DocDarm take you out on the town.

January -- you can have the wet SF, or the snowy NYC...  Me, I'd take SF, but I'm from the Boston area so I suppose I'm a bit biased  smile

San Francisco wouldn't have as much to do admittedly, compared to New York.  Alcatraz, redwoods not too far out of the city, Fisherman's Wharf, Golden Gate Park some of the obvious stuff off the top of my head.

NYC doesnt get much snow... everytime there is like 3 inches, everyone forgets how to drive and there are so many accidents, it's downright annoying.

You want snow, hit Michigan/Penn/Upstate NY...   theres a belt in there that just gets POUNDED..  Think Buffalo, then you will understand what I mean.  If he goes t San Fran, there is always a chance for shorts and a T-Shirt... if he goes to NY they are going to wear winter coats and be mildly cold.  But since it's the honeymoon, they wont make it outside most of the time anyways... So it's just a matter of preference.

Unless we're in the midst of the "D" word (drought), January in SF is usually rainy, cold and foggy.

Someone mentioned the chance to wear t-shirts and shorts while here? Only if you're going the human popsicle route. If it doesn't rain, it can be incredibly clear and sunny, but still cold. Okay, there's a snowball's chance of it being warm here in January.

There's Fisherman's Wharf, Alcatraz, several museums (SFMoMA, Palace of Fine Arts, Legion of Honor, Exploratorium, Cartoon Art), Golden Gate Park, wine-tasting in Sonoma or Napa, Beach Blanket Babylon, etc.

Tebunker, I'm getting married in April and we had almost decided to go to Prince Edward Island, Canada, but after looking at things a bit more we've decided to go to Mendocino, CA.  We're flying into SF, renting a car and taking 128 to Mendocino (ranked in the top 5 of the best drives in the country), staying at a B&B in Mendocino for 3 days (right on the Pacific).  Whale Watching, Deep Sea Fishing, Horse Back Riding and other activities are pretty reasonable there.  Then we're driving back to SF, staying there one night to see the sights and coming home.  

Just a thought, you may want to look at some other areas in CA as well smile
