    Victorian Homes

    by goingsolo Updated Jul 9, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Alamo Square district contains about 14,000 refurbished Victorian homes (according to Frommer's.) The Painted Ladies, shown in the distance in the photo, are the most famous of those homes. At one time, many neighborhoods had these impressive Victorian structures, but many were destroyed because the city believed that newer looking homes would be more marketable. Today, you can still tour this area between Fulton and Steiner streets and see the multi hued Victorians. As the owners are allowed to paint their homes whichever colors they choose and allowed to pick up to three colors, you'll find a colorful assortment in this area.

    Buskers Everywhere

    by davequ Updated Apr 28, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    All the great cities have talented buskers, street performers & artists, and San Francisco is no exception.

    This particular group (DeCadence) from Berkeley was performing on a Saturday morning near the Embarcadero.

    My foto and even their website do them no justice as their a cappella vocals, choreography, arrangements etc. were tight, outstanding, all delivered with tons of spirit.

    And it was free (but you have to drop some $ in the hat when someone is that good).

    SF sights and sounds . . .

    San Francisco has a great harbor and the ocean is an integral part of the spirit, if not the daily life, of the locals. The marinas, the yachts, the seafood, the smell of the ocean- they are all inescapable.

    Sightseeing at Union Square

    We went to the art exhibit at Union Square, shopped in the toy store and fabric store to name a few things. We ate lunch at the Cheesecake Factory.
