Customer Travel Tip: Don't bother trying to stay in the Mission, stay anywhere around the eastern part of Market Street. Easiest place to go everywhere.

Liked: The atmosphere, walking around the different neighborhoods.

Disliked: Public transport could be better, riding a bike can be a pain in the ass with all the hills. And, as everywhere in the US, everything closes at 2AM.

Customer Travel Tip: You must do Alcatraz and you must book at least a month in advance. It sells out. Also hire a bike near fisherman's wharf and ride over the bridge. Chill out on the otherside and get the ferry back. Great day!

Liked: Lots to do. Varied activities from alcatraz to riding over the bridge to cool bars and restaurants.

Disliked: I have traveled more than most. I don't recall another developed city with such a massive problem of in your face homeless people or people with mental health issues. It was quite depressing and unexpected.

Customer Travel Tip: Visit areas nearby including Sausalito as it has much more culture than San Fransisco and is much more beautiful.

Liked: Sausalito...

Disliked: The number of homeless people bothering you. Whilst there is a lot of public transport it isn't clear which stop you're at, or which route to take to get to major places such as Fishermans Wharf.
