Making the most of a business trip to San Francisco?
My company has just approved me for travel to VMWorld 2014 at the Moscone Center, which I've always wanted to go visit in person as a lot of cool things have happened there.
That being said, I' haven't been to San Francisco since I was an infant, and want to try make the most of my time there. :) I've also never been to a conference like this, so I am going in with a couple assumptions:
1. I'll have no free time (this is probably not true, but I'll assume my free time is limited)
2. I will try stay near the Moscone, and hope to walk or public transit
I suppose I am looking for ideas of things to do, places to see, and great food to eat. (For example: I hear there is a 5k run at VMWorld where you can see Alcatraz and the Golden Gate Bridge and that does interest me.)
Now to try and get all my documents and flights/hotel in order!
Alcatraz is a fun trip and actually quite enjoyable without too much crowding. You basically pay for your ticket there, but then can take any boat back you see fit. If you're there on a Thursday that is their night tour day which I've been told is really cool.
Do the Wharf just to get up there and see the stuff, as well as hit In-N-Out but it's pretty touristy and not too exciting.
The Bridge is worth checking out just from a marvel stand point, even in the fog, since it's so old and big. You can also spend time walking through Crissy Field and Fort Mason while you're there.
It's a bit hard to make some recommendations because they could require some time to accomplish. I'll defer food options to the locals though.
Thanks all for the suggestions so far!
At the risk of linking a pdf here. That VMWorld 5k run does indeed go through crissy field and follows in interesting looking route
