What did you like most about it? What didn't you like? If you haven't why would you want to go?

I'm from San Francisco. I would highly recommend the following: Fisherman's Wharf Aquatic Park (right along Fisherman's Wharf) Ghiradelli Square Financial/Fashion District which is northwest of Market St. close to the piers, once there visit the Embarcadero Centers, nice shopping Pier 39 Golden Gate Park and the museum/aquarium which is nestled in the park along with the Japanese Tea Garden and Exploratorium (very cool, must visit that!) Ride a cable car, it's very nice.... Powell St. Chinatown is ok, it's pretty dirty in some parts.... JapanTown is nice Ocean Beach, The Cliffhouse (a must, to explore) very cool, Highway 1 runs along this, my dad and stepmom got married there overlooking the Cliff at dusk, it is one of my most favorite places in San Francisco...... Never been to Alcatraz, but I heard it's awesome too. Treasure Island is also cool..... I could go on and on.... The richer areas like Sunset, Nob Hill, Pacific Heights are nice too. Believe it or not the Castro St.area is nice (primarily gay community) they have nice coffeeshops and shops in certain parts. Little Italy area, the best foccacia bread ever!!!

Lucky you getting to live in San Francisco. We saw some of the things you mentioned, but we only had a day and a half there, so we didn't get to see it all. We did go to Alcatraz because that was my husband's top priority. What a cold, despressing place. I'm sure I'd give up hope if I were ever confined to a place like that. We liked Chinatown, too, but the people there seemed to think we were in the way. We liked the food markets which were packed with everyone yelling and pushing. My son walked clear across the Golden Gate, but it was too cold and windy for me. My husband and I are planning another trip in the next couple of years to visit his brother in San Jose.

San Francisco is one of my favorite city in California. I never get tried of going and going and enjoying the beautiful siteseeings and attractions that they have. Whether you want to sightsee, shop, dine, take in a show, relax or play (or all of the above), San Francisco is a home to a little bit of everything. I found San Francisco a really romantic place to be with.

We spent a day walking around San Francisco, and we loved every minute of it. We saw Chinatown and the wharf, went on a boat ride, took another boat over and toured Alcatraz. Then we went to a little out-of-the-way Italian restaurant that was out of this world. This was in July, and with the winds off the bay, it wasn't at all too hot. In fact, out on the water and at Alcatraz, it was too cold!

I've been to San Francisco a few times. THe first time I spent more time. I visited different areas like Fisherman's wharf, China town and Golden Gate Park. This past time, a few weeks ago, I stayed outside of SF.. so didn't see too much except fort he airport. I was there for a family affair in the outscorts of SF.

I have driven through San Francisco, but haven't had the chance to actually visit there. The only time we went to California was with my sister-in-law & brother-in-law to go fix my husbands Grandma's back fence so the hill didn't fall on our house. We would have loved to have gone more places to site see, but sadly time didn't allow it. My husband and I are hoping to travel down there next spring or summer, depending.

I was born in San Francisco, and have visited there back when I was growing up. I would Love to go visit there again sometime. I have always wanted to see the Golden Gate Bridge and Chinatown again.

I used to work in San Francisco. Right downtown at Union Square. It is a couple blocks walk from Chinatown. I recommend a visit to Chinatown. There are all kinds of neat little shops that you can go into and see some really cool stuff. Fisherman's Wharf is a great place for dinner. they have some of the best restraunts there. It's a really great city to visit because of how it is built right on the hills. Plenty of things to see and lots of places to eat. You can't possibly see it all in a day.

I have never been there. I don't know that much about the area, so not sure if I would want to visit there or not. Once we retire, maybe we should take a trip out there to see what it is all about. Have you been there? or do you live there now? What do you think of the area?

it's where the nearest international airport to us is located, so it's where we fly in and out of the US. however, i haven't spent time roaming the place, just went for a short drive around the city one time and took some pictures of the golden gate at the marin headlands. will definitely go back there later and have a tour of the beautiful places i heard of.

Yes I have been there, its a wonderul place to visit. My favorite bridge is the Bay bridge, I love how it is so long and its a double decker. Also the Japenese tea gardens in The Golden Gate park are wonderful. Of course the streets that go up and down are fun, Fishermans Wharf is a must see. Lombard street is also another must see, its the crookedest street in the world. I could go on and on, I would love to go back someday and do some more exploring. And you can't forget the cable cars.

I was born there and we returned for a visit when I was 16. It has the best pizza shop and beautiful scenery. I like the temperate weather and open attitudes.

Yes I have been there for a few days a very long time ago. Unfortunately I didn't see much of the city. I was visiting friends and didn't see much outside of the area they lived in. What surprised me most in San Fransisco was that it was hard to find an English speaking person in the shops and restaurants. They all spoke either Chinese or Spanish. I don't know if that has changed now or if it was only in that neighbourhood I was in. I would love to go there again one day and see some other sides of the city.
