Planning your trip to San Francisco

DSC_0483You close the lid of your vintage suitcase and tuck your plane ticket into your purse. You’re headed off for the City by the Bay…

Dialing Dreams soundtrack

Be serenaded by these classy numbers while you’re immersed in the world of Dialing Dreams. Or savor them while you’re out living the jazz experience – in San Fracisco!

  1. Operator, Please – Matt Dusk (The song that inspired my story#7 on his Good News album)
  2. I’ve Got the World On A String – Frank Sinatra
  3. Fly Me To The Moon – Tony Bennett
  4. I Left My Heart in San Francisco – Tony Bennett

Places to eat:

Enjoy a delicious meal.

  1. The Fog City Diner: When I ate here on my own trip to San Francisco, I could just imagine Nick and Belinda cuddled up in a booth together.
  2. Ghirardelli Square: Though Nick and Belinda didn’t eat Ghirardelli chocolate in Dialing Dreams, I’m sure they must have shared a chocolate bar or two while strolling along. Or a sundae with Ghirardelli chocolate sauce. (There’s a small cafe on the square, too.)

Jazz Clubs in San Francisco:

Visit one while when you’re out living your jazz experiences!

Accommodation:

The Hotel Whitcomb, where Belinda worked as a telephone operator, is a real San Francisco historic hotel. Here’s one place you could stay during your adventure in the City by the Bay.

Things to do:

DSC_0503Belinda’s daily ride on the Powell-Hyde cable car line can still be travelled today. And there are some great scenic city views when it stops along Lombard Street.

I’m sure both Nick and Belinda probably shopped for hats at the Gorin Brothers Hat shop. After all, it’s been around since 1895.

And here’s a list of vintage and secondhand clothing stores in San Francisco.

    Aw, this was a really nice post. Taking a few
    minutes and actual effort to generate a very good article… but
    what can I say… I hesitate a whole lot and don’t manage to get anything done.
