Cool and foggy, very hilly streets that is what greeted me on my first trip to San Francisco. I loved it! For me it was too quick of a trip and I tried to get in as much as I could. The sights and food ( more on that later) were awesome. I was escaping the relentless heat and humidity of the east coat and to me the cool foggy weather was perfect. I was not able to get a clear picture of the Bay Bridge the two days that I was there but I guess that means I have to come back.
I can’t say San Francisco is walkable the maps are very deceiving. They should all be topographical maps. My suggestion is always use public transportation, cable car, street car, bus or BART it really beats walking. If a hill has to have steps cut into it is too steep.
So I tried to hit all the major “touristy” highlights, Fisherman’s Wharf, The Ferry Building, Grace Cathedral, and Alamo Square. Now that I know how to get around I can’t wait to go back.
