1. Visit the Cable Car Barn and Museum at Mason and Washington and see the operating cables and sheaves of San Francisco’s cable car system. The museum is a trip through the history of San Francisco’s famous cable cars.
2. Walk across the Golden Gate Bridge that San Franciscans claim is the most famous bridge in the world. It is truly a symbol of San Francisco. Don’t just look at it, experience it on this 1.71 mile trek. The view of the city from the center of the bridge is spectacular.
3. Walk Lombard Street considered the crookedist and steepest Street in San Francisco. The crooked section was created with sharp curves to switchback down the one-way hill past lovely Victorian mansions. The street is paved with bricks. On your walk, you may even catch a glimpse of the famous ghost that haunts one of the homes.
4. Spend a rollicking evening at Beach Blanket Babylon in North Beach, the longest running musical review in the city. Situated on Beach Blanket Babylon Boulevard, this hilarious show satirizes politics and society with show-stopping renditions of popular songs. The costumes are gaudy and fun.
5. Stop in at the Buena Vista Café at 2765 Hyde Street and enjoy an Irish coffee or two or three. Fraternize with San Franciscans and tourists in this casual, homey café. Buena Vista claims to have served the first Irish Coffee “ever stirred in the United States.”
