San Francisco, the city by the bay, is one of my favorite cities. If you drive in San Francisco, don’t drive a manual transmission, the city is very hilly. Scenic, Lombardi Street is one of the most windy streets.
The island prison of Alcatraz, in the San Francisco Bay thought to be inescapable is now empty. You can take a tour at the end of the cable stop. Take a sweater it can be quite cool. It is cool most of the year.
Cable cars, notorious for breaking down — they are old, travel from Union Square to Fisherman’s Wharf where you can eat out at fish stands or enjoy a lovely seafood dinner with an ocean view.
Flying a kite in Golden Gate Park used to be so much fun. There is also a Zoo, and botanical garden in the park and lots of walking/jogging trails.
