"Views and Romance"

I admit it: I'm a view girl. I'm all about the mood, the ambiance, the romance - and the scenery in front of me. Maybe my experience here had more to do with being in great company, but on a perfect night, I can't imagine a more romantic place to be.

A magical thing happens in San Francisco at night: the fog burns off, the clouds lift, and the panoramic views open up to reveal bridges and skyscrapers, waterfronts and oceans. Few places offer better views of the Golden Gate Bridge than the SF Maritime National Historic Park, and with its grassy fields, numerous park benches, and paved walking path right on the water, it is a perfect place for couples to go at night. The cityscape quickly becomes yet another backdrop as you cannot help but be drawn to the oh-so-familiar, oh-so-gentle lapping of the bay waters just off the shore, although you will quickly be drawn back in by the prospect of a drink at one of the restaurant bars or an ice cream sundae at Ghiradelli Square.
