    Probably going there soon.

    This is my first trip by myself so I don't want to be walking into the wrong places

    Stay near union square and you don't need to drive. Buy a transit pass for the week or however long you're there, really good system that's easy to get around on.

    If you like oysters and fresh seafood, look up swan oyster depot - it's an awesome little storefront shop that's only open during the day and been there since the early 1900's. Awesome staff, they like visitors from out of town. Sears Fine Foods makes awesome breakfasts (it's another early 1900's institution in sf) and it's right up the street from union square. Swan is only about 8 blocks off, easy walk and worth it.

    As noted above, chinatown there is pretty cool. Stay above geary at night as the tenderloin district can be pretty f'in dangerous after dark if you're in the wrong place at wrong time. Seen a couple of good bumfights down there wandering around drunk at night and a LOT of sketchy people. Out hotel staff gave us shit for wondering too far into the bad area, said we were lucky that no trouble happened.

    Edit - found the address for swan for you - 1517 Polk St

    Also, if you're a coffee fan Cafe Trieste is best bean in SF and is in North Beach on Vallejo St.

    Go to Ghiradelli Square - it's a fully functional chocolate factory with a freakin' awesome dessert place. Very busy and I believe it is just west of the wharf.

    If you like video games and other techno crap - go to Playdium (I think it's called). They have a Sony Playstation place that you can just sit down and play all the latest games for free. They also have a Microsoft store there that has some neat stuff as well.

    I took a tour of the giant red woods when I was there a couple years back. It was pretty awesome. The biggest freakin' trees that you've ever seen as well as some nice scenary.

    Oh yeah, go check out Castro too!

    if you hit up alcatraz... MAKE SURE you call couple days in advance or even book tickets online. I went there for a couple days and I couldnt get tickets.

    watch out for people scalping them .. or companies try to sell u timeshares and they will give you tickets.

    There's a place in SF in the Mission area (I think) called "Slanted Door". It's a really good fusion restaurant

    Go to Alcatraz for sure! It was way cooler than I imagined. Do the audio tour while you are there. You get to hear so many amazing stories from guards and prisoners, and its no extra cost anyways. I'd say this is by far the best thing to do in San Fran.

    Get a chocolate Sundae at Ghiardelli! They are soo good. I'll never forget the bum wading in the fountain there to pick out all the coins. He looked so happy for a soaking wet guy on a cold November night

    Walk around the streets and check out the amazing houses on all the hills. At night you can see through a lot of windows and see how the rich live. Some amazing places!

    Ride the street cars.

    Drive across the Golden Gate up to the redwoods and wine country.

    Drive across the Bay Bridge to Oakland and see some Gangsta's and slums (go during the day though).
