San Francisco is a hugely popular tourist town. Every day the tourist hordes can be found milling along the top of the bay and getting in the way of the hardened locals like me. 🙂
This Post-Thanksgiving weekend however has been bliss. No tourists! No people come to that either… as many people head out to visit family.
So without the tourists – what better time than to be a tourist yourself? That’s what we did by hiring a Go Car for the afternoon.
Today I learnt that:
- OJ Simpson went to Galileo High School which is right behind my house (and where the kids from there regularly smoke weed in my doorway!)
- Alcatraz is THE most visited landmark in the US
- Lombard Street isn’t the most crookedest street in SF – this one in Potrero Hill is.
A good fun way to see the city – though petrol fumes and getting beeped at by SUV’s does take it’s toll after a few hours!
