okay, so i made a post last week. it wasnt the best post. so let me try again.
basically, i have my "little black book of san francisco" handy. i've read it. yet, i still find myself deathly confused on how to get around the city to the sights i want to see.
the basics, again: staying in north beach. have a reservation for a car rental. i had to book a car rental with orbitz, because i need the car later in the trip for yosemite/death valley.
okay, so, the plan is, theres this parking garage literally right around the block from my hotel, charge 25 bucks a day, has free in and out, etc etc. so i'm gonna leave it there for 4 days.
i arrive on 10/16. i already have that night planned. cobbs comedy club. awesome.
now, here's a list of things i want to see in the next 3 days: the haight, golden gate park, golden gate bridge, soma, the bay area, riding along cable cars, union square.
now, i know golden gate park and the haight are right next to each other, so that works. but, how do i get to golden gate park? should i drive? can i leave my car in the park and walk to the haight for the evening/night?? very confused. i know the "F line" ends right near haight. should i take that?
also...golden gate bridge...how should i get there?? i've heard people saying they take buses. i've also heard people take a 2 hour walk, starting at the SF bay and going all the way around?
also, where exactly do i go to get the best pics of the bridge? how do i get right under it? etc etc.
the book i have doesnt go into tremendous details, thats the thing.
also, just wanted to get some opinions on golden gate park...is it "worth it" to check for 2 or 3 hours? are there alot of locals that hang out there? i'm trying to hang with the locals. : )
