    Now what? I heard about some festival thingy called Artpop. Anyone heard of it? Know where it is? Google isn't helping much.

    I miss San Franciso. I visited for a week in 2008 and loved it. I remember riding across the Golden Gate Bridge on a bike, visiting Alcatraz Island and going to an amazing Aqua World of some kind (The name passes me). I was such a tourist but I loved it. The food was awesome too. From what I remember It was very expensive compared to other places we visited on the West Coast but definitely worth it. We visited Las Vegas the following week - what a contrast.

    I love San Francisco... Been out there more for business than pleasure... but even for business, you can find plenty of pleasure... icon_lol.gif

    I love the "night" tour of Alcatraz. Last boat out, costs a little extra and that extra goes right to the restoration funding, and they take you through places not on the "standard" tour. I've done it twice, and both times the extra location(s) were different. So worth it.

    I've been several times. It is a great walking city (some of those hills give you a good calf workout too).

    You get a great work out living here. Lots of hills, and steps to run all over town. (This is just one set of stairs on Telegraph Hill). S.F. will keep you in the best shape of your lives!

    Running the Lyon Street steps. One of my favorite places to run. Four blocks of stairs keep my fiancé and me in shape. (The brown house in the background is Senator Dianne Feinstein's house, by the way). This in in Pacific Heights, at the end of Broadway Avenue, up against the Presidio. There's a gate there, and you can continue your run all through the trees in the Presidio. In the background out in the bay, you're seeing Tiburon/Belvedere and Angel Island / great places to hike and cycle.

    Yeah, who wants low-life middle income people for neighbors?   icon_twisted.gif

    Yes, to move here. But to visit, is slightly less than NYC.
