    As the holidays roll around, it's always nice to take a step back from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and take a well-earned vacation.  You don't have to go far to enjoy a respite -- even a quick staycation will do.  San Francisco is where DearMissJ all started.  It is the city we love, and we love sharing it with you even more!  Here's a quick guide to our beloved city that SF locals will most definitely agree with.

    1. The Ferry Building: Perfectly situated along the Embarcadero, overlooking the bay, the ferry building is a must-see on our list.  We love the aroma of freshly baked Acme bread and perfectly aged cheeses upon entering.  Stands selling various locally sourced eats, drinks, and other pretty things, we love the old time feel these small businesses create.
    Find yourself in the city on Tuesday, Thursday, or Saturday?  If so, you are in luck.  Make your way over to the Ferry Plaza Farmer's Market and enjoy fresh meats, cheeses, fruits and vegetables or delicious street food unique to San Francisco!
    Tips: Coffee addict?  The ferry building has got you covered.  Try the famous Blue Bottle Coffee Co. for a morning, afternoon, or any time of the day pick-me-up.

    2. The Marina
    If you are looking for something more scenic, -- if that is even possible because the ferry building is beautiful -- head over to the marina and enjoy a panoramic view of the bay.  If you're lucky, it will be a clear day, and you will see the Golden Gate Bridge in the background.  
    Tips: Our absolute favorite vegetarian restaurant is located in the marina.  Check out Greens Restaurant for the best vegetarian food you ever did taste.  We love their brunch menu!

    3. Shop on Fillmore Street
    Fillmore Street and Pacific Heights is the upscale boutique district of San Francisco. Beautifully trees line the streets and make for great window shopping.  It doesn't hurt to buy a thing or two, or three.
    Tips: Try Smitten ice cream for a pick-me-up before you shop until you drop.  You won't regret.

    Bon voyage!  Enjoy the city we love the most!
