San Francisco in September - where are all the hidden gems?

by matt.safrica

Hi there,

We are South Africans visiting San Francisco for three weeks in September.

Besides all the usual touristy places we would love to get recommendations from San Francisco locals as to other places where we could visit and inexpensive places to eat (all the hidden gems, places off the tourist maps.....where the locals go).

Much appreciated.

Regards,
Matt

There are hidden gems all over San Francisco. Check out the VT pages and chose a few. It is great that you have a few weeks in SFO, you would love the place with great sites and venues. My cheap eats are in Chinatown, I posted the places on my SF page. The most expensive thing is accomendations. I hope you can sub an apartment for a month, or have friends in SFO to stay with. Cheers Tommy x

I agree with Tommy, just check out the "Off the Beaten Path" items on S.F. pages here at VT. Many members have written tips waiting for you to read.

gail 128 has a old post I am trying to copy and paste for you, she was spot on, here goes the copy:::

1. Camping - Presidio, must reserve in advance. 2. Don't drive in the City. Take public transportation. It's much easier than driving. But if you must, there are parking garages all over. 3. I've never been to Six Flags so can't help you there. 4. On July 4th we go down to Fisherman's wharf, pier 39, Ferry Building etc and in general near the Bay. There'll be bands playing at pier 39. Then at night there's fire works. It will be crowded and it will be cold. But it's lots of fun. 5. No need to avoid the City on the 4th. Most of the locals will be out of town. 6. Must sees are Chinatown, Union Square, all along the waterfront, Twin Peaks (If you have a car) Ferry ride to Sausalito and walk around Sausalito, Lombard street, Coit tower, Golden Gate Park, Calif. Academy of Science in Golden Gate Park (Must see for kids) Golden Gate Bridge, Palace of Fine Arts Exploritorim. 7. Dim sum in Chinatown, self service eateries in Westfield Shopping Mall in downtown (It's on the lower level) self service eateries in the basement of Macy's. Sushi in Japantown. Where are you staying? I can probably recommend more restaurants in that particular area

Don't forget the great old restored houses you'll find all over the city, including the Painted Ladies of Alamo Square: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:PaintedLadies2010.jpg

Matt, do check out the San Francisco pages for good insight from our members on where to go/what to do. I just finished up my pages from our trip there a couple of months ago and included a lot of free things to do - and a number of them are sort of off the standard tourist grid.

Travel Tips for San Francisco

Seal or sea lion ?

by Muya

I never thought about the differences between a seal and a sea-lion until I went to Pier 39. The Marine Mammal Center displays some leaflets that you can pick up for information. And I thought I would share my new knowledge with you, or at least those among you who like animals :-)

First of all, when you visit a zoo or an aquarium, the trained “seals” that you see are actually sea lions. Adult male have a sort of bump called “sagittal crest” on their head. Female and young male are light brown, they get dark brown as they grow older.

Some features that differentiate seals from sea-lions :

- ear flaps : all sea lions have ear flaps, whereas seals don’t
- flippers and claws : sea lions have long front flippers without claws, seals have short front flippers with claws
- way of moving : sea lions walk on land whereas seals crawl

Now, why are they so abundant around Pier 39? Well, simply because it is a comfortable place to sleep, because they find enough fish to feed on and because they are safe from their predators (mainly the great white shark and the killer whale).

And one funny fact for all movie fans… the war screams of the Orcs in the “Lord of the Ring” movie was a record of sounds made by young elephant seals !
Freaky :-)

Having the comfy shoes!

by AydanMirza

One of the most exciting and best spots in San Francisco is to visit its downtown area. The city is full of travelers and very crouded. You deffinately feel the atmosphere being fresh and friendly. When walking in San Francisco the best part is to have the most comfortable shoes. Do not make a mistake by wearing high heels and feeling uncomfortable. San Francisco is a smaller version of New York and it has an old city feeling.

Melting Pot

by Skibbe

Soak up the many cultures in San Francisco. It reminds me of New York in that there are so many of them that went into making this city special. Virtually every culture in America is represented somewhere in this city.

Cable cars, Alcatraz, Golden...

by dez.au

Cable cars, Alcatraz, Golden Gate bridge, Lombard st. are all great but the thing that was great for me was walking to all of these places and keeping my eyes open all of the time. All of the neighbourhoods are so incredible that if you arent paying attention with your head in a guide book you may miss something fantastic. Walking across the Golden Gate Bridge. It had me in awe from the first glimps I got of it and could find enough footsteps to take it all in. So I stoped, a lot.

Victorian Homes

by Gypsystravels

The row of Victorian Homes found here in ALAMO SQUARE is called 'Postcard Row' and is one of the most photographed residential areas in America. Bound by Webster, Broderick, Oak and Golden Gate Streets. Having a picnic at Alamo Square Park overlooking the downtown area.
