My wife and I love San Francisco, we go whenever possible. Would love to come down and have you show us some local flavor away from the touristy bits.
I'm afraid I'm not much of a guide when it comes to San Francisco Kevin. I've lived in the East Bay (Oakland), the North Bay (Vallejo) and for the last 23 years in Marin. I've been musing about where I might take Nikki when she finally arrives for the last stop on the Great Lens Adventure and think it really needs to be San Francisco. But because folks on the thread from around the world don't really have experience with the city, I'll likely do some tourist things myself... though I won't talk about them yet. I'll let the photos tell the story.
When I lived in the East Bay I spent a fair amount of time in San Francisco where I had good friends, but the city has changed a great deal since then and apart of a general sense of neighborhoods and how to navigate around town, you probably know the city better than I do if you visit often.
I am planning on visiting the de Young museum, both to see the building and to see a collection of Dutch Painting from the Mauritshuis, the national gallery of the Netherlands . I visited that museum a couple of years ago, especially to see Vermeer's the Girl with the Pearl Earring, which is part of the exhibit at the de Young. I'm looking forward to that...
It seems we have a few folks from northern California on the thread at the moment. Pretty cool...
