Since I’m moving back down to Southern California at the end of September, I’ve been trying to meet up with Nikki as much as I can since I won’t see her as much anymore. We decided to head to San Francisco and check out Ripley’s Believe It or Not and the Aquarium of The Bay. She’s been in the Bay Area for many years and I’ve been here for 7 years and we both had never done Ripley’s and she had never done the aquarium.
We met at my house and then headed to Jack London Square to catch the ferry to San Francisco. I hate driving to San Francisco because of the hills and all the one way streets, plus the ferry is pretty fun. We got there and started walking to Ripley’s but then decided to get boba first (of course!). We finally got to Ripley’s and it was pretty cool and interesting.
After that, we decided to head to Pier 39 to check out the aquarium. It was fun to walk around and look at all the fish and sea creatures they had there. For dinner, we both were craving some sort of seafood so we decided to go to Pier Market. We shared calamari and we both got a clam chowder bread bowl and salad. It was super fun hanging out with her and the kiddos.
We were calling this trip part of our “Bay Area Bucket List” but then we couldn’t really think of anything else to add to it. Have you been to the Bay Area? What is something you enjoyed doing?
