With the right travel companion, big cities can feel wonderfully intimate—and these stole the hearts of T+L readers.

No. 3 San Francisco

3 of 21

Like the fog in summertime, romance hangs thick in the City by the Bay. Stroll through Golden Gate Park and then cross the Great Highway to watch the surfers at Ocean Beach. For exquisite nighttime views of the Bay Lights installation on the Bay Bridge, settle in to one of the waterfront restaurants at the Embarcadero (Waterbar is known for its oyster bar). San Francisco is also less than 90 minutes from Napa and Sonoma valleys, earning it the No. 1 ranking among cities for wine lovers.
