I am spending eight days in San Francisco in May with my husband and baby daughter. My husband will be working some days in the week so I will be doing sightseeing solo with my little girl. We have rented a house in Noe Valley near 24th street and I would love some advice on the easiest way to get to a few places from NV, on my own, with my baby.
I have been doing a lot of reading on here and plan to bring our carrier but some days I will need to use our stroller (I am thinking of getting a v light umbrella one for the trip) and I want to make public transport usage as easy as possible.
I would like to go to the Ferry Building for the market in the week and the Golden Gate Park to go to the Academy of Sciences.
I also want to ride on the historic cable car(s) and/or trolley (still getting my head round all the different transport in SF) - what's the nearest point I could do this from Noe Valley?
Lastly I am also considering doing a hop on hop off bus tour and/or some walking tours in the Castro/Haight - has anyone done these with a baby in a carrier or stroller? Do you think it would be straightforward?
Thanks in advance for any help.
