Hike up Telegraph Hill for extraordinary views. Take in the Haight Asbury street festival in June and check out the campy vintage shopping. We bought an old formal in pink! Stroll the Golden Gate Park, Eat at Scoma's, the Stinkin Rose, and the seafood on the wharf. Go with all the tourists to Alcatraz and BE SURE and get the headphones that make it come ALIVE. Have coffee at Buena Vista, where Irish coffee was created. Don't miss the wine country, both Napa and Sonoma. Be sure and have bellinis at the culinary institute!

Location, location, location! Close to it all. The concierge sucks, avoid. The rooms are basic, but the price is right. Denny''s on property open 24 hours is pretty convenient.

I would not THINK of visiting San Francisco and NOT coming here several times. THIS is where Irish coffee was invented and they do it Right! Real whipped cream, real stout Irish whiskey, real he-man coffee. They have got it DOWN! On the cable car line.

When your teens become vegetarians, what's a mother to do? These same people who refused to eat their peas and carrots growing up, exsisting only on grilled cheese, french fries, peanut butter and hot dogs, now refuse steak! So here's to families who eat together and enjoy it! Everything is great! Be sure not to miss incredible food and desserts.

Quote:
Like a scene out of a movie set, the streets are crowded with petitioners who want to legalize weed, huge snakes, yes they are real, wrapped around necks of bearded men, or are they men? is it costumes or is it drag? Street food includes shark tacos-- terrific! Live bands & vintage shops.
