Drive up to tilden park just past Berkeley technically in Oakland. Fantastic view of the entire bay area from te top of the hill.Edited By: jerichoholic Jul 28th, 2011 at 03:34 PM
I was there for a couple of days once. We did the Golden Gate Bridge, Muir Woods, found some nice restaurants, did the Fisherman's wharf walk through, went to Coit tower and took in the view and the best part was driving the PCH down past Half Moon Bay through Santa Cruz to Monterrey/Carmel and 17 mile drive through Pebble Beach. That coastline is absolutely incredible. My legal assistant says she did the Alcatraz tour and enjoyed it.
are you and your wife gay? if so you can go to the castro district............my uncle lives there so i been a couple times, i like goin to berkeley, alcatraz is cool, pier 39 w the seals and clam chowder is cool..anywhere around golden gate....just walk around city of sf...will try to think of more
giants game (if they're not in town just go on a tour. it's that awesome). fisherman's wharf is nice and touristy, just don't buy anything lol ($$$$). alcatraz, golden gate bridge. as for nightlife, everything is within 20 minutes by cab, so it really depends on preference
pics of W?
I thought Alcatraz was really cool. The whole wharf area and pier 39 is good too. Go to a Giants game if you can, that stadium is sweet.
go to Broadway, some great clubs there
cable car ride
Cal. Academy of Sciences in GGP
Pac Bell Park
alcatraz i hear is nice (never been, so i wont 100% recommend)
I'd say Golden Gate Park
The Buena Vista Cafe
Just about any restaurant in SF is money...
Like someone said, if you get a chance drive PCH and make a few stops. There's a ton of cool stuff on that drive. Rock fishing in Monterey Bay is pretty fun, plus if you like golf these trips sometimes make there way right off the coast of Pebble Beach, Spyglass, and Spanish Bay.
drink some great wine
if you are a beer man, Moonlight Brewery beers are really good. It looks like the Toronado has it on tap.
Recommend Death & Taxes (black beer) or Bombay by Boat (IPA)
whats the cost of livin like out that way? I think I would love to move to somewhere like SF
-alcatraz flash light tours are money
-anchor steam brewery tour always does the trick
-"4505 meats" at the ferry buildings farmers market for the worlds best hot dog
-rosamunde sausage grill (haight st location) for some killer sausages. wash it down next door at toronado and their killer beer selection
-get legit pizza at flour+water
-cant go wrong with catching an a's or giants game
-the 21st amendment brewery is killer
