Save money at the mini-markets!
Much like many of the old world cities in Europe, the streets of San Francisco are full of corner mini markets that are built right into the neighborhood. The offer inexpensive drinks and many of them have deli's that will make you a fresh sandwich for about $5.99 So if your exploring S.F. on foot keep an eye out for this mini markets and treat yourself to a inexpensive snack or lunch!
A typical cell at Alcatraz
This is a cell at Alcatraz. You can look inside them, even enter a few. Not a pleasant place to be-at least not by choice. Next year: free HBO!
By the way, in New York City an apartment this size usually sells for at least $500,000-maybe even a million, if it's in the right neighborhood!
As s big architecture-fan I was very impressed by all these lovely VIctorian houses. There are a lot of famous ones like the Steiner's Painted Ladies, the Red VIctorian, the Octagon House or the Haas-Lilienthal-House (picture), but you can find a lot of them just walking around the streets of San Francisco. Just open your eyes and admire the coulors and the style!

View all the bridges and the Bay -
The outer areas are very beautiful -
For some reason the grasses all look so very green in April,
The bay is beautiful during the day, but even more so at night - The food...... absolutely the best halibut with stuffed crab meat ..... Sour dough bread ... yum....
Check out the restaurants on the water ... nice views and guaranteed great food.
visit the San Francisco bay...
visit the San Francisco bay with a boat. I recommend the company Red & White Fleet. It goes from Pier 39 until the Golden Gate Bridge. It's a long trip and it passes just in front of the Alcatraz Island too.
