Bay Area visiting?

2007-06-09 14:05:49.001055+00 by Dan Lyke 3 comments

Got a Flutterby reader coming out to San Francisco for "...a job interview + a couple days of sightseeing...". Suggestions?

Coit Tower Bay Cruise / Alcatraz Chinatown North Beach Ferry Building Game at PacBell (or whatever they're calling it this year) Ride the streetcar at least once, just because it's the touristy thing to do, and if you're friendly, you can probably take pictures of cute asian tourists and make them smile Fort Point

That's probably more than a couple days...

Traveling Flutterby reader here...

Awesome town! Been all over the central area on foot from Van Ness to Masonic... Japantown, Haight-Ashbury, a bit of Golden Gate Park... Mission District ( i think - need to confirm on my map...) Heading to Potrero today... Haven't seen a trolley yet - lots of street cars (the noises from the wires caught me off guard more a few times until i got use to them... Heading to Chinatown this evening with any luck... North Beach tommorrow... thanks for the tips!

Mission District is Mission from about 16th through 24th (or where Mission meets Valencia), Mission up where it's parallel to Market is the north side of "South of Market".

Glad you're having fun! We got cable cars and street cars, the street cars are the ones with the overhead wires that are (mostly, at least along the Market to North Beach lines) restored from an earlier time and look really quaint, but'll shake you to bits, the cable cars are the ones with the steel cables running under the street that are the classic San Francisco look. They're in that triangle between Market Street, Embarcadero and Van Ness.

I may end up in the city tomorrow or Wednesday, if I do I'll try to coordinate with you!
