Carol at Wayfaring Views lists and describes some of San Francisco’s off-beat bits. Some of these places I’ve been to – and love – some are waaay outside my experience. It’s all good. San Francisco is a city I fell in love with right from the start when my shuttle pulled up at Fort Mason. Many subsequent visits have only pushed it further into my heart. Carol writes with love, and that’s the way the City should be written about.
San Francisco defines counterculture for the US. Starting with the gold rush through the civil rights movement and into the dotcom boom, successive waves of hopeful newcomers full of ideas and itching for a better future have infused the city with creativity and an anything-goes attitude. The city is open, liberal, creative, sexy…and kinda weird. Sure, go to Pier 39 or ride a cable car or whatever, but if you want a true taste of the city, then make time for some of these cool things to do in San Francisco.
