One of the best cities in the World. There is far too much to list with things to see and do and you could spend a lifetime seeking it all out. Food is a huge attraction and it showcases all that Northern California has to offer with many options. The Arts, whether it’s music on stage or in a gallery are World-class and doesn't get much better. The natural beauty of the Bay Area is the best attraction and worth spending as much time in it as you can.

Sailing, my personal favorite. San Francisco bay is considered one of the worlds best places to sail or race, a bucket list region for all sailors. The bay offers dramatic views with tons of sea life from our famous sea lions to humpback whales. Racing the bay is the best with races everyday of the week in the summer plus a lot during the winter too. A good resource for Bay Area sailing information can be found online at Latitude 38.

Consejos para la ciudad

Facilidad para moverse por la casa
Take the Larkspur ferry to San Francisco, easy and fast.
The ferry parking lot can fill up fast with weekday commuters so get there early or take a Uber. Get a clipper card to pay fare, its cheaper then buying one way or round trip tickets. The ferry also goes to the new Chase Arena for basketball games and concerts.
Formas de ahorrar
Parking in San Francisco can be expensive.
All parking meters in San Francisco are free on Sundays, which makes it a great time to explore the city. Use normal caution when leaving items in car because break-ins can happen.
Qué debes empacar
Dress in layers for the Bay Area.
The common recommendation because of the wide range of weather conditions, it can be cold and windy a few miles from hot and calm. Walking shoes are a must or hiking boots for the trails.
