Alcatraz you normally have to book days ahead (especially in the Summer).

Fisherman's Wharf is nice.

But in another post you did not want to know about the USA did you or more specifically a person who resides there.

Sweep,

Read my earlier posting and then try to comprehend what I said. :(

Your comments have nothing to do with this topic.

Chinatown is well worth a visit. Napa Valley if you are into wine, Mill Valley is over the bridge. Make sure you have a hot fudge sundae at Ghiradelli's Ice Cream and Chocolate factory at Ghiradelli Square. They are the best. Catch a ferry to Tiburon. :thumbs::thumbs:

Nearly forgot the cable-car. Take the one up Market St I think it is. Goes to Nob Hill.

I know what you said here in this thread earlier.
I also know what you said in another thread.

Your comment in the other thread had nothing to do with the topic either but you still posted it anyway.

Ride the cable cars is a must.
Take a walk up to Coight Tower.
We did a day tour that was on a bus around the main sites in San Fran that included a stop at the bridge so we could take a walk on it.

SWMBO is going to be there around end of June for 3 days. Passing through there on way home from Canada.

She says to ask all you guys if anyone can recommend some reasonable, central, safe (area) accommodation for a "mature" lady travelling on her own.

Thanks in advance. Sorry if I hijacked the thread, but she is interested in some of the suggestions so far.

I can recommend the Carlton on Sutter St. We stayed there 2 nights exactly 2 years ago. Very friendly staff, comfortable & nicely restored historic hotel, moderate prices. Complimentary wine hour before dinner!

Views from Coit tower on telegraph hill are great.
Salsalito on the other side of the Golden Gate is worth a visit.
Muir Woods National Monument was just great - again on the north side of the GG.
California Academy of Sciences which is in Golden Gate Park - great if you enjoy natural history.
Take a Muni ride to the beach.
Cycle around the Embarcadero to Fort Point. Great "underneath" views of the GG.

I am also interested in any feed back. We intend heading that way in early September and meeting up with two American friends, one of them was born and raised in San Francisco. It is their suggestion we make our base in the Napa Valley area :D
For the sake of all other road users there, Marc will be doing most of the driving.
