if you go to san francisco























i love san francisco, but i don't think it's a particularly tourist friendly city. and if you are like me, who doesn't want to spend their entire visit with other tourist, you may need a little help to find the places where the locals go. i collected some of the places that i love in the city, click on the links and will take you to their site. have a great time in san francisco, but never in "frisco"!
