Sailing, my personal favorite. San Francisco bay is considered one of the worlds best places to sail or race, a bucket list region for all sailors. The bay offers dramatic views with tons of sea life from our famous sea lions to humpback whales. Racing the bay is the best with races everyday of the week in the summer plus a lot during the winter too. A good resource for Bay Area sailing information can be found online at Latitude 38.

Kaupunkia koskevat ohjeet

Liikkuminen

Take the Larkspur ferry to San Francisco, easy and fast.

The ferry parking lot can fill up fast with weekday commuters so get there early or take a Uber. Get a clipper card to pay fare, its cheaper then buying one way or round trip tickets. The ferry also goes to the new Chase Arena for basketball games and concerts.
Tapoja säästää

Parking in San Francisco can be expensive.

All parking meters in San Francisco are free on Sundays, which makes it a great time to explore the city. Use normal caution when leaving items in car because break-ins can happen.
Mitä kannattaa pakata mukaan

Dress in layers for the Bay Area.

The common recommendation because of the wide range of weather conditions, it can be cold and windy a few miles from hot and calm. Walking shoes are a must or hiking boots for the trails.
