My 5 year old and I are going to be staying in San Jose for a week with friends and want to visit San Francisco this Friday (9/13). What is the best use of our time both in how to get to the city and what to do in the city?
I was thinking of driving into Fisherman's Wharf getting there around 9:30am. I would park in a garage (which is the best value?) and then we would do a ferry tour or something, have lunch, do [something] in the afternoon and head back to San Jose 3:30 or 4:00pm and try to beat the evening rush.
Thoughts? Should we drive to SFO and take the BART in? What would be a good use of 5-6 hours in city with a 5 year old?
I should add that I'm willing to spend money for efficiency so the cost of parking doesn't bother me, but if there is a better way I'm all ears.
Thanks.Edited: 4:49 pm, September 09, 2013
