Where I stayed
Whilst in San Fran we explored the city going to Nordstroms (a large shopping centre with the worlds only spiral escalator) and had a ride on the old trams! They're pretty cool as still very traditional and have the turntables at the ends where they have to get off and manually push the tram round. We also explored Fishermans Wharf and the different piers, sampling a massive pretzle and the like. Really busy and bustling it was a great atmosphere.
Our trip to Alcatraz was pretty cool
The only downside was walking about at night as we were staying in the downtown area which was pretty dodgy! Lots of people hanging about on street corners etc so we were rightly advised to not venture out in the evening. But all the good stuff was best explored in the day anyway.
