I arrived in San Francisco in the late evening and by the time we had driven into the city my shuttle was lucky enough to be caught up in the end of Fleet week, the end of a Giants game and something to do with the America’s cup. Wall to wall bodies.
Over the next 2 days I saw a lot of San Francisco either on the bus or by walking. I started off on a “hop on, hop off” bus and saw the Golden Gate bridge again.
Then I walked for a bit and saw the crookedest street, which is part of Lombard St. It was actually a part of the street designed to stop the earliest cars careering down a very steep hill unchecked. (Now I bet that you didn’t know that
Then I visited City Hall. It has a gold dome, not golden but gold. Heaven knows why.
The walking tours of China Town and Little Italy were fun.
In one part of Little Italy there were very in to street poetry and pasted it on the pavement?!
I also found an original flyer for a 60s concert.
Then I went on a night tour on San Francisco and saw City Hall at night dressed to support the Giants!
