Great restaurants and strolling. Semi weekly events like a night market make this place quite lively. Parking is underground. Good shopping nearby. Saw someone kayak to a restaurant here. Very interesting scene.

For a slightly different Bay Area tour for out of town visitors, start at Jack London Square. Plan a coffee, lunch or dinner, or local wine tasting, then hop on the ferry for the best way to have a view of the new bridge, and head to SF for a leisurely stroll on the Embarcadero. Sunny days or starry nights,... More
