I'm looking for a recommendation for which neighborhood will put me within walking distance of good food/drinks/coffee.
My fiance and I are going to spend a couple of days checking out on my way home to NorCal. We love neighborhoods where you can walk to good local food, coffee shops, book stores and a general sidewalk culture.
Recommendations on neighborhoods or specific hotels? We'd rather not spend a fortune, but it doesn't have to been bare bones either. I'd say we could spend up to $125 a night, although under a hundred a night would be awesome. We will have a rental car to get around but prefer the shoe leather express.
