Go the Distance in San Francisco

In Going the Distance, Drew Barrymore and Justin Long's characters try to keep their long distance relationship alive by regular commutes between New York and San Francisco. If you're heading to San Francisco to re-kindle a long distance relationship, spend a special holiday with a long-term partner or just indulge in a holiday fling, the city has no shortage of romantic spots. Here are some of our favourites:

- If you time it right, a walk along the waterfront in Crissy Fields will provide romance-inducing views of the sun setting behind the Golden Gate Bridge.

- Stroll through the Golden Gate Park's Conservatory of Flowers. What better place than a flower sanctuary to nurture a budding - or full-flowered - romance?

- Don't be put off by David Lynch's odd television town Twin Peaks - the San Francisco version is named for the nearly identical summits, one of which is the second highest point in town. Pack a picnic and take your lover to enjoy sweeping views across San long as the city isn't shrouded in fog.

- Clanging cable cars climbing the steep streets of San Francisco. It's the image everyone associates with the city so why not jump onboard and sneak a kiss with your partner as you watch the city roll by.

- Booking a room in any one of San Francisco's many historic grand dame hotels is sure to impress a partner. Try the Fairmont, the Huntington or The Palace San Francisco.

- Catch the ferry to quaint Sausalito and while away an afternoon sipping a local pinot gris at a bayside restaurant.
