With both of us working busy jobs, Pat and I really have to make it a priority to get out of the house when spending time together. Even if it’s just a walk to the beach to catch the sunset, it’s better than another night on the couch watching re-runs.
San Francisco has so much to offer we feel guilty when we don’t take full advantage of it. Sometimes though, the hurdle of organizing things keeps us from getting out of our routine. It’s hard to take that extra effort when we’re stressed and tired.
HowAboutWe is the perfect way to clear away those last lingering excuses. The company organizes fun local dates for everything from dessert tastings to DJ lessons!
For our first date, we opted for a San Francisco city lights tour with Vantigo. Even though we’ve lived in San Francisco for over a year, we’ve never done an official tour. The owner of Vantigo, Erik, was our guide for the night. Erik drove us all over the city in Lillie, his 1971 Volkswagen Van.
Erik has an encyclopedic knowledge of the city. The ride was filled with fun facts about everything from the Transamerica building to Palace of Fine Arts.
I cannot say enough nice things about both HowAboutWe and Vantigo. It was so nice to just snuggle in the van and be taken care of for the night. The tour is great not just for visitors to San Francisco, but also for people like us who want to know their city a little better. It was the perfect date night for us and just one of the many, many planned dates that HowAboutWe offers.

So pretty! We live in Petaluma and keep saying we are going to go down to SF.
Thanks Amanda! Definitely worth the trip! 🙂

Good post, now I just want EVEN MORE to live in SF 😉
I’m new on your site but I’ll try to read as much as I can since I like DIY, food and of course SF where I plan to live with my wife sooner or later.
Thanks! It’s definitely a magical place. I love it so much!

We currently live in France, the move won’t be so easy but I’m sure it’s worth it 🙂
Definitely. It’s nice too for a visit as well.
