Without question a tourist mecca, but is that a bad thing? The Embarcadero Waterfront has an amazing collection of bars, restaurants, shops and views for days. As I mentioned, it's a major tourist hub, so count on the fact it's going to be crowded; no...More

This is one of San Francisco's urban renewal successes. In the 60s this was the site of a rundown wholesale food market, but that got swept away and replaced by these office buildings, hotels and a shopping center. The center works best for food and...More
