Reasons to Love San Francisco Right Now

Love comes in all forms, and this Valentine's Day, we thought we'd honor a type of romance that everyone can relate to: Love for your city. After all, urban living may be frustrating, crowded, gritty and just plain exhausting sometimes, but it can also be incredibly moving, full of moments of human tenderness, delightful experiences, and of course, delicious food. That's the part of city life we're honoring this month with a collection of happy stories to bring a smile to your day. (Psst, we've found reasons to love other cities around the country as well: Check out our guides to Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, and Washington, D.C.).
