San Francisco is NUTS! And we wouldn't have it any other way...

From the Top of a Double Decker Sightseeing Bus- San Francisco, California. USA.

Five days a week, eight hours per day. I ride a bus. Not just any bus. A special kind of coach, two-stories high with stairs and wheels and wooden benches. It's not quite a cable car, but to visitors, just enough that they will spend quite a bit of effort to get "selfies" or family holiday cards aboard, even though the real SF MUNI Cable Car is just blocks away.

I'm a proud Guide in this crazy city, and from my perch witness the madness on a daily basis. It's insanity. It's ever-changing. It's North Beach, Chinatown, Union Square, Civic Center, The Haight, The Park, The GGB. It's a place where visitors still think it's "California," and dress for it all summer. It's protests and nudist weddings. 420 celebrations and high tech conventions. It's 20-somethings making $250 K annually, and school teachers just getting by. It's locals and transients, the displaced a block away from ladies who lunch.

I see it all from my bench. And it never gets old.

Ride with me as I journey through the streets of this quirky, historical, unique city. Find restaurants, bars, events, oddities and more.


Let's Go!

Tomorrow: My restaurant pick of the week. Cafe Divine in North Beach
