What to do in San Francisco, California

We stayed in San Francisco for another half day, we drove down towards Fisherman's Wharf and grabbed breakfast at this really nice little place. I can't remember the name, but the coffee was good and they had some really fresh sandwiches.

Fisherman's Wharf is nice and give you a little bit of a European feeling, however all the seal lions are gone now which is kind of sad.

Anyhow, we had a nice walk and in the end Lori decided that he really needed to take the Cable Car up the hill once. Alright, I was driving the car to stay close to the Cable Car, which is not that easy, because it's hard to drive that slow.

We caught up with Lori and then headed towards China Town. I think the China Town in San Francisco is a really nice one because they have all these Chinese looking buildings and the atmosphere is much cozier than for example in New York or Los Angeles.

We checked out some shops and then headed back to the car to get out of the city and drive towards Menlo Park where we had another business meeting.

San Francisco, CA overviewWhile wandering through Chinatown's streets and alleys, don't forget to look up. Above street level, many older structures have ornate balconies and cornices. The architecture on the 900 block of Grant Avenue and Waverly Place is particularly noteworthy, though some locals decry it and similar examples as inauthentic adornment meant to make their neighborhood seem "more Chinese." San Francisco's charms are great and small. You wouldn't want to miss Golden Gate Park, the Palace of Fine Arts, and the Golden Gate Bridge. But a walk down the Filbert Steps or through Macondray Lane or a peaceful hour spent gazing east... Read more »
