South Bay is the area below San Francisco distinguised by, among other places, silicone valley. This box shows a picture of the Golden Gate Bridge take from the Marin Headlands and has nothing at all to do with S.F. What gives?

This is very industrial and spread out. You'll need a car to do stuff, and there are not any real neighbors to walk the shops in yet. We went to a cooking demonstration here at a local, very well known appliance store, and had a wonderful time. Then we went on into the city for lunch and shopping.
