Planning a date can be a tall task, but it doesn’t have to be. I’m going to make it easy for you fellas. So, stop Yelping and Googling, just follow along, she’ll love it. Whether it’s the girl you keep flirting with on Bumble or your better half, this walk through the Marina will put a smile on her face & keep a few extra dollars in your pocket. On this stroll, you’ll wind your way from the manicured gardens of the Presidio, up the iconic Lyon Steps, & then down charming Chestnut St. for a delicious treat & a craft cocktail.

About Your Guide
Hi, I'm Corey. I like sporting bow ties, but I'd rather be wearing my backpack, getting lost in the winding alleys of a place I've never been, while eating a donut. San Francisco is my home, although I've lived in Paris, Austin, and Santa Barbara. I've traveled all around the world, my most recent trip was to Sri Lanka and the Maldives with my wife, Myriah. I like parentheses (most excellent for interjecting trivial thoughts), I played soccer in college (but, now I just yell at the TV while watching it), and will eat any street food I encounter (yes, that includes rotten things, bugs, the occasional snake heart, and of course . . . durian).
