Fog / Weather, San Francisco
Favorite thing: Considering its proximity to the ocean and some small hills/mountains to the south, foggy skies are a definite possiblity. But it's not all bad, especially when it's been clear all day and you're near the ocean and you can smell the saltiness of the ocean riding in on the fog. Sometimes I miss that smell more than anything else.
Favorite thing: San Franciscans are the Nicest people You'll Ever Meet!! and by the way the picture on the left is real. It hasn't been digitally re-mastered. SF does get real foggy and cold at times. It's weather isn't your typical California image (sunny and everyone's in bikini's). So dress warm and enjoy.
'Wear some flowers in your hair'...just kidding. I'd have to say do anything....or nothing. There's a warm feeling that will follow you no matter where you go.
Fondest memory: Believe it or not, it's the fog. I love it.
Do a lot.. Visit as many restaurants as you can in diffrent areas of the city.. From Japanese to Chinese to Indian to Mexican to Peruvian to Euthopian to Italian to Thai to more.. Lots of cultures meeting in this one little city make it fantastic.. You should also catch some shows or just go at some club to check out the local music scene.. definitely a must.. During Christmas time, go to Nordstorm to see the big Christmas Tree, do the Union street and Union Square thing, to drive up behind the Golden Gate bridge and see a great view to check out Ashbury Height for the music scene to indie films and plays... So much to do and so little time.. Do visit the neighboring cities for other great things such as Napa for wine testing, spa, hot air ballooning, Point Reyes, Clear Lake, Half Moon Bay, and more and more and more....
Fondest memory: hmmm. Fondest Memory.. so many I have.. I think it's going to a comedy club or theater or museum or exploring restaurants to sitting at the park on a foggy day and watching the ships sail by..
Favorite thing: This is Ocean Beach. A good stretch of sand, but its usually foggy and cold in the summer here, so bring your thermal under wear. Across the street used to be an old amusement park called Playland. Parts of it are preserved in a museum near here.
Walk across the Golden Gate Bridge when the sun is shining. The views are absolutely incredible. Bring a jacket though because it can get mighty windy.
Fondest memory: San Francisco has a huge mix of people and so it shows in the city's culture. There are many great restaurants, shops, music and of course, dot-coms.
Frisco is a well-worth visiting city, so there are so many
cosy places to be visited that I´d say I´d take someone
Fondest memory: Looking at from my window at Berkeley and see the rolling
fog often enveloping the Golden Gate Bridge.
Perhaps I really miss its feelings, its people, etc.
experience the fog, as its icy fingers curl over the city, and finally shroud its mistress, like a jealous lover
Fondest memory: Impossible to have just one... this is the greatest city in the world.
