We stayed in the Financial District near Union Square, so it was super easy to hop on any of the public transportation systems--which we used the entire time we were there! These guys did not ride in a cab at any point on our trip--hello thrifty travelers! We were pretty much locals by the time we left (alright maybe not).
The first full day we were there we went to the Haight-Ashbury area--famous for the Free Love, Hippie, Flowers in your Hair, Jerry Garcia mentality of yesteryear. We went a little too early in the morning for many of the hippies to be out and about, however one hippie was up and was kind enough to offer us some pot--we graciously declined (10am is a little too early to be toking, if you ask me). While in The Haight, we did take in some of the sights:
Let me interrupt this post really quick to let you all know that Hubby and I hoofed it all around San Fran--we walked and walked and walked until our feet were about to drop! But we had a great time doing it!
Anyway, on to the park--I got some cool pics of the flora and fauna, and the of the buildings, too. What a great park to have in your city and be able to explore, run through, and enjoy on a regular basis!
