Shopping

Hi All

Thank you for valuable contribution and suggestion.

Is it true that there is another Macy not far from the Union Square where the local used to patronize because their prices are cheaper ?

On the public transport, is there any 2 or 3 days bus pass for unlimited travel within SFO ?

Thank

Tom

Hi

I think I remember passing a Macy's in the area you are talking about. I'm not a shopper, though.
Now, I do know about the bus pass. I got one for 3 days several years ago and have since realised that it is generally cheaper to just pay the regular fare and get a transfer when you get off.

Macy's (Union Square) is split (or used to be) into two stores across from each other. It's just different departments not less expensive. Check http://www.sfmta.com/cms/home/sfmta.php for information on Muni bus passes. It will have the most updated information. Always get a transfer pass from either BART or MUNI so that you can move from one transport to another without having to purchase a new ticket.

For "outlets" that allegedly have lower prices (but not necessarily) you'll have to head to Napa which I believe are the closest. Prices are not always cheaper at the outlets.

Check the J. Crew store in San Francisco. According to my daughter in college at the UCSF, it is the best for stuff and prices.

There are one, three or 7 day visitor passes for the SF Muni system available. They cover the streetcars, trams, buses and cable cars but do NOT cover BART or ferries. Multi-day passes (like a 3-day pass) also have to be used on CONSECUTIVE days. The website below details cost and where to buy them. I purchased mine at a visitor kiosk right outside the station at Union Square.

Macy's Mens store is across the street from the main store. You will also find a Macy's in Stonestown. You can pick up a Muni pass at the visitors center located at the Powell Street Station.

i still stand by jcrew, but you have to go all the way out to stonestown mall, which is off the city center. i would just stick with h&m if you're looking for discount clothing. then order jcrew on line at a later date.

Travel Tips for San Francisco

Layover at San Francisco International

by Kaikoura

If you really want to see a bit of SFO three hours will not give you much time to do anything. Contact your travel agent or you carrier and find out if you can take a later connecting flight to Japan or earlier flight to SFO. If you have 6hours on your sleeves you can do it. As mentioned above, the three hours will only be enough getting out and back into airside at SFO.

Check SFO website below. It says pax with 4hrs layover could use the BART from the airport to the Bay area. But personally I would want 5-6 hrs lay over if I ever have to get out from a busy international hub like SFO. You would not want to miss your flight.

http://www.flysfo.com/web/page/orphan/visit/index.html

So call your airline and ask for some advice. When you arrive in SFO go to the transfer desk and advice them of your plan. Some airports can give you a pass to go out so you do not have to go through the long queues. But again, check this with your carrier.

If you are from a visa waiver country you can go out of the airport anytime. If not just make sure you have a transit-visa or a US visa. Most charming and captivating city! I love the Victorian homes that lines her narrow streets. The tram, the crooked street, two of the most popular/beautiful bridges in the world; and yeah, I love the view from Twin Peaks!

Fishermans wharf

by assmac123

When you are in san fransico you will go to fishermans wharf --when you are down there try the clam chowder it is very good and a local dish-it is like soup stuff in a bowl made from bread you eat the bowel and its contents tastes yum yum. the people are the best thing there everyone speaks to each other it is a very nice city not like a lot of the other citys in america where the people can be a bit pushy and rude- it was a really nice place to go and visit.

SF Convention & Visitors Bureau

by Freebeacher

Make this your first stop in the city, especially if you arrive by B.A.R.T. The Powell Street station opens up into Hallidie Plaza practically at the front door of the center. The plaza is at the intersection of Powell Street and Market Street and there is a cable car turn-around next door. Free maps and guidebooks, as well as brochures for activities can be found here. There are "hotlines" in various languages to assist travellers from many places.

Lombard Street

by GUYON

Between Hyde and Leavenworth, Lombard street snakes to reduce the slope of street which was 26 pct and becomes 16 pct thanks to the curves. So the horses were able to climb the street.
Now, it is a one way street (West ---> East) and a lot of drivers use the way only for fun.

It is also famous because it is covered of flowers. A French guy, from Limousin, had the idea. He leaved at the 1010.

More pictures in the Travelogue Several films show a car pursuit in this street.

San Francisco's icon

by acemj

The Golden Gate Bridge is arguably the most famous bridge in the world and has most certainly become the symbol of the city. One of the most famous stretches of Hwy 101 is this bridge, which connects SF with Marin County. Its construction was an engineering feat that many people thought would be impossible in this blustery, jagged landscape before its opening in 1937. The two main cables contain 80,000 miles of cable, enough to circle the globe 3 times.
There is a $3 toll to cross the bridge, but you can bike or walk across for free. The views of the city and the bay are well worth it!
