One month left in San Francisco: What should I do?

Asked by Elfman (449points) March 3rd, 2007
Favorite things to do in the Bay Area that should not be missed? (Been here seven years so I've done a lot but let me know if there is anything extra special that may be off the beaten path...thanks in advance.

Marin Headleads. Point Reyes. The Gee's Bend Quilts exhibit at the DeYoung, if it's still there. Walk the Inspiration Point trail in Tilden Park (Berkeley). Eat upstairs at Chez Panisse (expensive, but won't totally break the bank!). Eat a chocolate thingy and a cheese roll at the Cheeseboard (Berkeley). I'll keep thinking...

while you pack, get rid of things. don't move things that you haven't used in the past 5 years.

Make sure you catch the view from the top of Telegraph Hill. Have you taken the tour w/audio of Alcatraz? Pisco Sours at Destino on Market. Truffles from XOX Truffles in North Beach. Take the ferry over to Sausalito and wander around town for the day. Drinks at the Top of the Mark and/or Carnelian Room. Walk from the Ferry Building to the Golden Gate Bridge. Walk across the Golden Gate Bridge (and back!). Take public transit out to the Palace of the Legion of Honor or China Beach and walk along the Coast Trail past the Sutro Baths to Ocean Beach then take public transit home. (That way you don’t have to walk the trail in both directions ‘cause your car’s in a parking lot back there>>>).
