Greets fellow DEs, frequent posters, casual visitors, and lurkers,
Hi I am in the earliest planning stages for a two week trip to San Fransisco. I am on business, and will be near the area of 4th and Market.
Thanks for your wonderful "Top Questions" very informative stuff.
A couple of quick questions to get me started.
Should I fly to Oakland or San Fransisco, any advantage of one over the other? Price won't be a deciding factor for me.
I guess the most efficient way to Market is BART. Any tips, traps, concerns there? I'm very used to public transit. Also, is there a reasonable town car service?
Car rental? Is it worth the effort? I am an experienced driver in congested cities- this kind of leads to my next question.
I will likely have early afternoons and evenings to explore (and a weekend). I am not one to do tourist things, I am much more interested in meeting local people and seeing what's on their minds and eating or going to local hang outs. Someone told me in general SF folks lean towards being the friendly type.
That being said tips for cheap(er) drinks around town? I usually guzzle a couple of drinks at Happy Hour..I'm pretty sure the cost of living is higher is SF than my town so help in this area would be nice (can't expense alcohol).
Thanks and as payment for your wonderful advice I promise to pack up some sunshine from here for you in January.
