    Zikes....didn't know that it had been closed. Oh well.....you can still cross the bridge and take a hike up Mount Tam. My god the view of the Bay from up there. Spectacular!

    The best pizza I ever had was at North Beach Pizza, 1499 Grant Avenue @ Union St. It's just South of the Coit Tower in Little Italy

    A cable car ride is a MUST.

    Also, a nice drive around the Presidio is a nice, free thing you can do. A lot of history there.

    If I only had 8 hours, I'd probably just spend it there at the Wharf...lots to do there! (Check out the old WW2 sub there!)
    Happy Anniversary, MiceChat!

    Watch out for the scary bush guy Anyone else had the pleasure of meeting him?
    Marge: Barnacle Bill's Home Pregnancy Test? Homer, shouldn't we have gone with a better-known brand?
    Homer: But Marge, this one came with a corn-cob pipe!
    Marge: [reading from the test box] "Ahoy, Maties! If the water turns blue, a baby for you! If purple ye see, no baby thar be!"
    Homer: So, which is it? Blue or purple?
    Marge: Pink.
    Homer: D'oh!
    Marge: "If ye test should fail, to a doctor set sail!"

    Yes, on two trips in two years! He's a homeless guy who's created a little job for himself on the fringe of the tourist industry. It's funny to watch the unsuspecting ones pass by from across the street.

    The singing comedian at the Wharf Cable Car Station is not amusing at all if you have to wait for a car.

    Yeah! Bush Man!!!

    We get to see him each time that we are there. The kids don't want to do anything else until he scares them :devil: .

    It's a blast watching him get his next "victim". People sure do react differently. Most end up walking away laughing. Others don't

    He's a genuine tourist attraction himself!

    Skip Pier 39, it's a tourist trap with tourist junk shops and outlandishly overpriced restaurants.

    Fort Point is a simply awesome suggestion... it's a staggering view.

    Skip the GG bridge, it's going to cost you $3 (last time I was there, at least) to get back in the city, and there's nothing to do on the other side.

    Ghiradelli square is skippable. Ghiradelli chocolate is craptastic (hell, even Hershey is better... Ghiradelli is as bad as Russell Stover). Go to the Hunan restaurant on Sansome near the Embarcadero instead.

    Sutro Towers offers one of the best views you can get, if you can find your way up there ;-)

    Some of the best times I've had in SF is simply from walking up Market Street from 14th to the Castro and stopping in the little shops.

    Skip the trolley and ride BART/Muni, and see how real mass transit should work.

    I guarantee if you go to the Haight, at least 3 people will walk up to you and say, "Wanna buy some 'shrooms?" Funny the first time, disturbing the second time, scary the third time...

    Don't forget Jack London Square in Oakland, either.

    Had a wonderful day yesterday. The weather was picture perfect. When I have a bit more time, I will write up a trip report. For now, you can take a look at the pictures. There are two pages worth of pictures.

    Thank you again to everyone for all your suggestions.
    Anything listed on the park maps as an attraction is fair game for inclusion in the Rally.
    I cannot confirm nor deny the inclusion of any attraction in the Rally.



    May the Gumballs Be with You...Always.

    NO GOATS!

    Take a trip down Chinatown...they have AMAZING food if you like chinese! Fisherman's Wharf has great crabs and a good spot to stop (i like food!). If you like shopping, you HAVE to stop by Union square. Alcatraz is very cool, but takes a lot of time. Oh, abd good luck driving there! It's so confusing that i ended going the wrong way on a one way street!
