    Typical things to do include the cable cars, trolleys, Fisherman’s Wharf, Alcatraz, Lombard Street, Ghirardelli Square, Chinatown. I like walking the streets where there is so much to see and do. Walk through Chinatown & Little Italy. Find the Golden Gate Fortune Cookie Company. Tour Golden Gate Park and the Japanese Tea Garden. See Beach Blanket Babylon, the longest running play…very funny. Eat at fabulous restaurants. Have a drink at the top of the Mark Hotel. Wander through the Ferry Building. Take the tour of the Golden Gate Bridge or walk across it.

    Oh….and at the Marin County Farmer’s Market they have a Chicken Truck – a large truck selling hot, fresh rotisserie chicken and roasted potatoes.

      You can almost always find good Italian in the North Beach area, but I don’t have any recent recommendations. Not sure about Mexican, but I’ve heard good things about some places in the Tenderloin.
