"San Francisco and my European mis-adventures" lostsooner55's Profile
One of the world's most beautifully located cities, San Francisco is also one of the most unique and diverse. It's home to the North Beach, the Marina District, South of Market, Chinatown and Golden Gate Park. There are many "on the water" activities that tend to be overlooked by visitors. You can kayak in several parts of the Bay. There are dinner cruises available, as well as cruises to Angel Island, ( a good picnic, photo and hiking destination), and Sausalito. There are also cruises out to the Farallon Islands for photos and whale-watching, and boat tours along the Marin Headlands.
