IŽm arriving early and planning to do some sightseeing. What are the hidden treasures? Nice places, shops and restaurants ... Anybody familiar with the town that can help?

It really depends on your interests, because there is so much to do in the area. If you're interested in trolling more of the fabric stores, etc, than we'll be able to do on Saturday, that's one thing; if you want to see vistas, that's something else; if you want to do what passes for Big City Shopping in SF, that's another thing. Then there's Big Trees (Muir Woods) and Bay Tours and Alcatraz and Angel Island and... and... it goes on and on.

The town is chock full of neighborhoods where you can shop and eat forever. There's Chinatown, of course, and Japantown, and I remember hanging around in what we called the Russian District. The Union Square neighborhood, near our hotels, could be a full day of shopping and eating, with a play to top it off if you so desire. If you want the kitschy, touristy but somewhat authentic San Francisco experience, travel the wharf from Ghirardelli Square to Pier 39 and Fisherman's Wharf. For that, you need a minimum of one of the following in a meal: sourdough bread, Dungeness crab, or Anchor Steam beer. I'd say a minimum of two, but crab season only goes to early June and sometimes slim pickings at the end of April.

Another possibility is a trip out to Golden Gate Park to the DeYoung museum to look at the Textile Arts exhibit. That's one for which I'd be happy to go along. There's other cool stuff in the GG Park, like the Academy of Science and the Tea Garden and the Conservatory and Stow Lake and the windmills.

Sooooo... what's early? Thursday? or earlier?

the bay is on the east side and the ocean on the west.It is only 7 miles of city.The transit systems are wonderful BART runs through and from the city to the east under the bay and to the south through all the commuter towns.There are streetcars cable cars,and buses, taxis everywhere.There is the Museum of Modern Art MOMA , The Palace of the Legion of Honor near the Bridge side of town. Of course there is the Golden Gate bridge itself and the Piers near the Ferry Building at the beginning of Market St.Market St. was one of the first commercial streets in the city and you will hear directions such as south or north of Market. Its a major orientation. Hope you have time to see some sights-the weather is due to be drizzly this next week.

That's a great idea.That way you will cross the bridge and have a view of the ocean and the bay.Muir woods has huge redwood trees. It is named after John Muir, a naturalist who explored California in the mid-late 1800's.He is considered the first environmentalist who wanted to preserve the wilderness and was instrumental in creating National and state parks.Perhaps the tour will take you up to Twin Peaks for a wonderful view of the city. I grew up on one of the other hills near there.

I can vouch for Muir woods...It is worth the trip out there. When I was there last June, we walked across the Golden Gate Bridge and back...now that is a hike but a very nice adventure.
