San Francisco Tidbits 04/09
Below are links to interesting things I found while researching for this trip. I sent out this information in a email called "San Francisco Tidbits" to our friends who will will be meeting us for a couple of the days we will be there. Items below in bold are links.
San Francisco Tidbit #1
San Francisco Tidbit #2- Free Walking Tours
"San Francisco City Guides" offers free walking tours in just about every neighborhood in the city.
They are run by the public library and volunteer guides.
San Francisco Tidbit #3- The Ferry Building Marketplace
The old Ferry building has been turned into a fantastic food marketplace with food stalls, restaurants and a farmer's market on Saturday and Tuesday mornings.
San Francisco Tidbit #4- Alcatraz
I’ve never been to Alcatraz. Shocking, huh? Looks really neat and I want to go!
This is the government park website for Alcatraz:
Alcatraz is free, but you have to pay for the ferry to get out there. The ticket comes with an audio guide. $26
San Francisco Tidbit #5- MUNI Passports
San Francisco has some good transportation passes which cover 1, 3, or 7 days and all busses and cable cars. They do not cover BART, but if you plan on taking the BART from SFO into the city, you can buy the MUNI passes at the airport and then use them to get to your hotel from the BART station.
Basic fare is $1.50 for the bus and $5 for a cable car.
San Francisco Tidbit #6- Museums
There are tons of museums in SF, no time to see them all of course.
Two of the best are the Fine arts museums, the De Young and the Legion of Honor. http://www.famsf.org/index.asp
There is also a Museum of Modern Art which looks super interesting.
Then there is the Exploratorium which is fun, especially for kids. http://www.exploratorium.edu/index.html
Restaurants are linked on the Google map.
