We walked from the first to the last peer looking for a nice sheltered cafe to enjoy the view of the Bay. We found none, only one or two approximations that met part of the criteria... Temperature was 15 degrees Celsius in the middle of...More

This is our second visit to iii city and again it’s been great. If you’re traveling on a budget and want to chill by a pool at the end of the day, stay across the bay. We have children that like a pool and there’s...More

The disparity between what you expect you will experience in San Francisco and what you actually experience is shocking. I worked for a good part of my career in Emergency Services on Skid Row of one of Canada’s larger Cities, but nothing could prepare me...More

Wonderful place to go for a morning/evening walk. One of the best places to take pics. A little bit busy but that is what makes this place so special.

Great views, interesting city and area. Must go to: Golden Gate Bridge, Chinatown, Ghirardelli square, wharf area. If you can, go to Palo Alto and Stanford University.

We live in Merced and it's a 2 hour drive for us and its worth it to take friends to San Francisco. This trip we went to Napa on a tour with another company and then headed over to restaurants in Fisherman's Wharf. Great times.

The view of the bay is definitely the best part of a visit to San Francisco. There are some very nice views from Sausalito in particular.

The Hilton at union square is quite handy and we used the hop on hop off bus to get around. We walked a couple blocks from the hotel to union square and bought tickets for the bus at 40 dollars each. It stops at many stops... More

I would vote for the East Bay as a base with sojourns into the City, but I would stay more on the Berkeley/Kensington/Solano side of things rather than Oakland. Weatherwise, fall and spring are the sunnier times for SF... More
