- San Francisco
Went ther 20 years ago on honeymoon, and going back in 3 weeks for a two week vacation.
Fishermans Wharf – meh
Marin County / Mount Tamalpas
Oakland – nip in and say hello to the founding chapter of the Hells Angels
Many great restaurants
There is a big bridge near-by, which is worth a visit
The build up to The America’s Cup
Mosie down to Santa Cruz and chill out wit the surfing dudes.
Get up early – hire a car and drive to Yosemite

Go see a Giants game if you can but if you’re new to baseball, try to find someone to explain what’s going on. I took a colleague there and despite his protests that it was “only rounders”, by the end of the game he was hooked and bought tickets for two more games while we were there.
It’s a really walkable city too so don’t feel obliged to use public transport. I walked from downtown, through chinatown and back to my hotel near fisherman’s wharf.
Go down to the Mission district for burritos and bikes or if you can, rent a bike and see it all from the saddle.Posted 4 years agoPigfaceMember
Its weird I have been there about 10 times and never stayed for more than a few hours. Just circumstances, everytime I have been there has left some incredible memories, cycling over Goldengate, my first Buritto down in the Mission district, seeing Soul Asylum playing at Rought Trade records they were billed as the next Husker Du out of Minneapolis they werent 😆
Actually that is wrong I stayed in a crappy motel in the Sunset area and was “entertained” by at least 3 men rutting furiously in the adjoining room. Terrifying 😯Posted 4 years agophilconsequenceMember
hire a bike – there’s a laundrette on lombard street that has a tiny bike hire shop attached to it, cheaper than anywhere else to rent from and the same quality bikes. go riding, ride over the bridge, ride around golden gate park or whatever tis called, ride around the coast from the bridge to get into the park, back through and around the city…. mrsconsequence and i rode about 30miles doing that and never got bored 🙂Posted 4 years agoBigButSlimmerBlokeMember
Trams are a must, obviously.
They are but try and talk to the driver, one we had told us a lot about them and was incredibly enthusiastic – he recommended the cable car museum where the cables are run from. Not big but it’s on a cable car route anyway so you can just hop off.Posted 4 years ago
If you head over to Sausalito (nice bike ride over the bridge), try to find the bay area tidal model, very cool. ferry trip back is good as well
Alcatraz is a must. Sadly deceased now, but I met a former inmate (Darwin Coon) who was one of the last inmates transferred out.
