Things to do in San Francisco


Someone on Open Salon asks what to do in San Francisco during a visit next month. Loads of people commented with suggestions, me among them.

A friend of a friend has been visiting during this exact rainy spell. It’s due to stop raining on Tuesday and that’s when he’s leaving. Sorry about the rain, dude. But if you’re getting cabin fever on this very rainy day, here’s what I’d do: go out to the Palace of Legion of Honor (pictured). The art is great, the cafeteria is nice, and the view is fantastic, whether it’s a rainy day or not. In fact it might even be better on a rainy day.

    Perhaps you’re thinking of the Conservatory of Flowers in Golden Gate Park.

    Westin/St. Francis tower elevators- best free ride in town! Musée Mechanique in Fisherman’s Wharf, fun for a dollar. Alcatraz is not over-rated. The little sparrow cars are a fun unique way of touring the touristy bits.
