San Franciscoers! Or member who have been..

I'm flying to San Francisco for a work conference May 20, 21, & 22. I'll have a little play time but not too much. What are the best things to do there? It's my first time to San Fran.

Just walking around in San Francisco is a major fun in itself. Take some time and go to China Town, Golden Gate Park, Fisherman's Wharf. Or take a short car ride to Sausalito (other side of Golden Gate bridge), Berkeley, Palo Alto, San Jose.

And the food is quite amazing no matter where you eat.

Have fun

All good ideas. And never, ever refer to San Francisco as "Frisco". People around here refer to it as "The City".

Pier 39/Fisherman's Wharf is a tourist spot. Lots to see. You can walk up and down the pier and go to a lot of different souvenir shops, etc.. Good seafood. You can take a Bay Cruise that goes around Alcatraz Island and underneath the Golden Gate Bridge.

Only a few minutes away by car is Union Square and the downtown area where you can do a lot of shopping and walking around. I think the Pier and downtown will take up pretty much the whole day and going to those two areas would be a good first time visit. Lots of walking so wear some comfortable shoes.

Don't forget the famous Crookedest street, cable car turn points, Legion of Honors, Ghirardelli square, Contemporary Jewish Museum (opened a few months ago). And, of course, don't forget shopping, which is pretty great in San Francisco.

+1 ...Downtown area : Market street, Union square area is great are for shopping (or window shopping). Make sure you visit the Old Navy store on Market Street. A few years old but still quite an amazing place.
