We visited SanFrancisco at the end of December 2016. We stayed for 8 days and 7 nights. I explored and took many photos. I had to use a compact point and shoot Panosonic Camera. I walked around the city a lot. You have to be in shape if you live in San Francisco. So many streets go up steep hills. I had to take my time going up the hills. We managed to see a lot. Thank God we had a rented car. San Francisco is a very expensive city. The Omni Hotel wanted $ 55.00 a night to park your car. We found a parking garage in Chinatown for $ 28.00 a night just a few blocks away from the hotel on Kearny Street. We took an early morning tour that took us to the ferry terminal and took the ferry to Alcatraz. After touring Alcatcraz and returning by ferry, The tour took us around San Francisco and over the Golden Gate Bridge. It was a nice day, sunny in the mid -forties. People from San Francisco thought it was freezing outside. Being from NY, I felt comfortable. The following images were taken in San Francisco.
