Weekend Escape : Seattle

To combat SF's freezing, foggy summer, we escaped up to sunny Seattle for a weekend. We spent the long summer days wandering the city and catching up with old friends. Great food, sunshine and tasty drinks filled our days. It was so nice to get out of the fog and be reminded that real, actual summer exists. Just not in San Francisco.

Fall Weekend in Portland

The leaves are colorful and crisp, the coffee is strong and the food is excellent. Portland, Oregon is the perfect weekend escape from SF. A short (usually very affordable) flight, and you're there. The food is cheap, there's no sales tax, and if it's possible the food options are even better than in SF. Food trucks, cool bars and tree-lined streets dominate the city.
