staffodl saidOk, so I will be going to pride in San Fran, and it will be my first time there. I will be going with two bi/ lesbian friends, and our hotel is right by the parade route but its a little ways from where all the festivities will be. My question is, is that I have never been to San Francisco, so what is the best way to get around? And I am looking for suggestions on where to go for the best night life, and in general what are the best things to see while we are there for 3 days. Any info or secrets would be greatly appreciated for this first timer.
Hey man, welcome to San Fran for Pride 2009.
. best way to get around is either by Muni train or buses around SF or walking on foot. Parking is bad here during pride. Take the Blue Super Shuttle when you arrived by air - to the city (cost about $15).
. best clubs here are (in my opinions) - Badlands, Trigger, The Bar, Moby Dick, Colossus (Underwear Party), Toad Hall, The Midnight Sun, Eight Lounge, Club Dragon...some are located around the Castro, be sure to pick up a SF guide or one of those gay SF guide.
. best thing/attractions to see - Japantown, Chinatown, Golden Gate Bridge, Fisherman Wharf/Pier 39, Alcatraz, Market St/Downtown, Union Square in downtown, AT&T Park in SoMa, Civic Center/City Hall, Castro gay area, TwinPeaks! (just some suggestions).
. Not sure so much about secrets or infos - just enjoy yourself and your stay during pride.
