Sightseeing in San Francisco

For my friends at Mozilla, I'm going to keep updating this as I go but Tine, Grace, mcolvig, etc if you've got ideas for sightseeing activities for friends here at Mozilla, that would be great. We've got folks from Japan, Europe, etc.

So restaurant ideas, sights, etc.

  • Golden Gate Bridge
  • Ferry Building (Saturday Farmer's market)
  • North Beach
  • China Town
  • Cable cars
  • Golden Gate Park?
  • bar hopping on Broadway St

Stanford University tour hang out on University ave, UC Berkeley Tour hang out on Telegraph Ave

Updated: Check comments and also check out this virtual tour from Riya.  It's pretty neat, just drill down to San Francisco.

  1. Ideas:

    – De Young Museum in the Park (awesome building — lunch at Park Chalet would top it off nicely)
    – Calder Exhibit at the SFMoMa (its open late on Thursdays)
    – Tres Agaves (great Mexican food + Tequila bar)
    – Haight Street (Not that I endorse this…but some people enjoy walking around it)

    I will let you know if I think of more.

  2. Spec's in North Beach (say hi to Sean)
    U-Lee's (Hyde and Jackson) for the best Chinese ('stickers!) in the entire universe.

  3. A couple of ideas:

    I'll second your recommendation of the Farmers Market and the Ferry Building

    For great casual non-touristy food, the Zuni Cafe on Market is an excellent spot.

    I've never taken one, but everyone seems to love the Wok-Wiz walking tours of Chinatown

    On a nice summer weekend day, a trip down to Half Moon Bay is always enjoyable.

    And if they're good folks, they can always stop by my house ;-)
