One thing that was of both culture and learning was the Mission Dolores. Supposedly, it is the oldest building in the city and hold a museum and cemtery in the back. If you stop by, you can catch a glimpse of the history behind the city.
The cultural diversity is incredible. Go with an open mind and just soak it all up.
Coming from the East Coast, it took a while to slow down and relax to the pace of the locals. Once I did, I didn't want to go back to the same hectic pace again. Enjoy it while you can!
You'll find that homosexual relationships aren't something that people hide in San Francisco and light drug use is only slightly less open. None of this does any harm to the tourist; however, it is interesting to observe.
Held in late June each year, the San Francisco Gay Pride Parade is the biggest one of its kind in the U.S. and is the largest parade in California after the Rose Parade. The route starts in the Financial District and goes down Market Street to the Civic Center where there is a stage with entertainment throughout the rest of the day. Lots of fun groups (e.g., Barbie Support Group, Dykes on Bikes), ethnic groups, floats, dancers, men dressed as women, balloons, and great music! It really is a lot of fun and everyone is in a great and friendly mood.
Check out the drag queens down by Fisherman's Wharf!! Definite culture shock for a midwestern girlie.
