if you’re going to san francisco… August 6, 2010

…be sure to wear some big heavy coats and scarves.

Yesterday Ann and I packed in a full day, mostly on foot, of city sights and quintessential must-dos. We started with a walk up to Coit Tower, then headed down to Ghirardelli Square and Irish Coffees at the establishment that claims to have invented them. Next was a Trolley Car ride (ding ding!) and then an unplanned walk through a not-so-nice part of town on our way to Haight Street and Golden Gate Park.

We ended the [long] day with a pretty rad night tour of Alcatraz and then drinks at a trendy prohibition-era bar that required a password (“Books”) when we rung the doorbell.

Overall? I’m ready to leave. The city is dreary and, frankly, just as hectic-feeling as NYC. I can’t wait to get under some sunshine again.

    San Francisco is best in October. Apparently, that’s the warmest month with the most sunny days. When we visited for our honeymoon (a million years ago), it was freezing down by the wharf, but once you were a couple blocks away, it was quite pleasant!
