    Places to stay away from?

    My girlfriend and her female friend are going down to San Francisco, California in September for about 4 days, 3 nights.

    What areas should they stay away from and also, what are some things they can go do/see while they are there? They are both 20 y/o.

    The 'nuts and fruits' section of...errr, the whole town.

    I wouldn't go to San Fransisco if I won a paid trip with spending money. That town has turned its back on our troops and our nation. OMO

    The town period. After my last roommate who lived there talk about it I realized two things, one roaming bands of BG's, two she was dangerous crazy. So in final I think the town of San Francisco is avoided.
    I know not what this "overkill" means.

    I have family that go there all the time and they have had nothing but great times. If you are going to give advice of where not to go, shouldn't you have been/lived there first?
    I too have been there, albeit some years ago and I had a great time too. No problems at all.

    I have a brother in law who goes there frequently and enjoys it. He's a hippie wannabe and is living out a 60's fantasy.

    I'm just one root in a grassroots organization. No one should assume that I speak for the VCDL.

    I am neither an attorney-at-law nor I do play one on television or on the internet. No one should assumes my opinion is legal advice.

    lol, I'm not the one going. They are. They are also not politically motivated on places they visit. The best thing about my girlfriend is that she is Pro-2A, so I really don't care about her visiting Cali. I have family in Suisun City, but I would never go there to live or spend much time.

    I am just looking for places in the city that might be areas that are known to be dangerous that they need to stay away from...

    San Francisco is a great place to visit! In the later days of my military life, I spent quite a bit of time in the Bay area, and got to have a real appreciation for it. Most especially the eating and the drinking! I've gone back both for business and pleasure quite a few times.

    There are lots of obvious spots to go, just to get the feel of the traditional tourist areas, such as Fisherman's Wharf/Pier 39, Ghirardelli Square, the Buena Vista (for Irish coffee), a drive down Lombard Street, Chinatown. Then you can cross the Golden Gate Bridge and visit Sausalito (Casa Madrona is a great place to stay and used to have an excellent restaurant, too.). On that side of the bay is Muir Woods for the redwoods.

    There are lots and lots of really unique places for drinking and dining that are off the beaten path as well (like Port Costa). Places like Red's Java House, or the Fog City Diner, or Pirate Cat Radio (and cafe -- probably the only place to get a maple bacon latte anywhere).

    And then there's the wine country, with tons of places to visit and enjoy in the Napa Valley (Milat Vineyards and V. Sattui Vineyards, both in St. Helena).

    There's no reason at all not to have a great time in San Francisco and the surrounding area.

    If you get the Travel Channel, watch the San Francisco episode of Anthony Bourdain's program, No Reservations.
    Cheers,
    Rod
