Suggested Weekend Schedule:

Your workshop weekend will offer time for play as well as learning. Plan to arrive in San Francisco by Friday afternoon. It will not be necessary to have a car unless you prefer to have one. Lyfts and public transportation are readily available and many hotels and restaurants are within walking distance to Fort Mason Center, the location of the workshop.

After settling into your hotel on Friday, take some time to explore the neighborhood and grab a bite to eat before heading over to Fort Mason Center for the evening presentation of Marriage Prep 101. The class will be over at 10:00 PM when you can retire to your hotel.

On Saturday morning head back to Fort Mason Center for a 9:00 AM class start. We will provide a continental breakfast. We will also serve a delicious catered lunch at noon followed by a short break. After lunch, many couples like to stroll along the piers or drop in to any of the events going on at Fort Mason. Then come back at 1:00 PM for the afternoon session of the workshop.

After the workshop is over at 5:00 PM, you will have the evening to further explore the City. Great restaurants, theater, cultural events and beauty await you.

Dinner on Saturday night at any of the amazing restaurants of San Francisco will be an unforgettable experience. if you prefer to stay nearby, try the nationally-known vegetarian restaurant Greens which is located only steps from our meeting room. Greens serves the best vegetarian food you can imagine and offers a stunning view of the sun setting over the Golden Gate Bridge. We strongly recommend you make reservations in advance for Greens or any other popular San Francisco restaurants.

Sunday is your day to further explore San Francisco and the greater Bay Area depending on your schedule. If you choose to stay, you might take a boat ride around the Bay or hang on while taking a trolley up and down the City’s famed hills. Visit any of our world class museums or rent a bike and ride through Golden Gate Park (closed to cars on Sunday!) or head up the Marin Headland. Visit North Beach and retrace the steps of Allen Ginsberg and the Beat Poets or head downtown for some shopping. Ask your Innkeeper or hotel concierge to suggest other local attractions to visit.

Contact us if you would like personal recommendations for hotels and restaurants. We hope you enjoy a wonderful workshop weekend in San Francisco, the beautiful city by the Bay.
