    Top of the Mark bar on the top of the Mark Hopkins Hotel on Russian Hill. You can see everything from up there.

    Coit Tower. Just down the hill, unmarked is 202 Green Street. It's where Philo T. Farnsworth invented television.

    On September 7, 1927, Farnsworth's image dissector camera tube transmitted its first image, a simple straight line, to a receiver in another room of his laboratory at 202 Green Street in San Francisco. Pem Farnsworth recalled in 1985 that her husband broke the stunned silence of his lab assistants by saying, "There you are — electronic television!"

    Yes, we saw that in a tourist brochure and we plan on spending at least a half day to get a full appreciation of that monumental event.

    If you only go for half a day, make sure it's in the morning. You don't want to miss the daily reinactment of my birth. The woman portraying my mom is also a groundling

    Re: San Fran/ At&T Stadium

    Last time I was in San Francisco, I was there for a Lotus Notes convention for work. One thing I did that was pretty cool was I hopped a cable car at the end of one line and rode it all the way to the other end. It was really interesting to see the differnt neighborhoods we went through. I expected it to be mostly tourists riding, but at least on my trip, there were a surprising number of locals hopping on and off.
    Burn down the disco. Hang the blessed DJ. Because the music that he constantly plays, it says nothing to me about my life.

The Golden Gate bridge kinda interests me but is there really any thing museum wise to check out or do you just look at the bridge and nothing else?
    As a Bay Area native who's played tour guide many times for family/friends, here's some of the usual stuff:

    Alcatraz, Treasure Island, Presidio, Pier 39/Fisherman's Wharf, Chinatown, North Beach, cable cars, Coit Tower, Golden Gate Bridge, Lombard Street, Union Square, Golden Gate Park

    And then what I'd say are some of the not-as-well-known:
    ride BART, Exploratorium, Cal. Academy Sciences/Steinhart Aquarium (in GG Park), Japanese Tea Garden (in GGP), Sony Metreon, Land's End, Disney Family Museum, Roebling Museum, Palace of Fine Arts, America's Cup races...also concerts at America's Cup Pavilion, Sammy Hagar plays Sept 7th.

    You can also tour the lovely Bayview/Hunter's Point District on your way to Candlestick for 49ers/Packers on the 8th...just make sure no way you'll run out of gas, and if you get a flat, just drive on the rim.

    Before/after a Giants game there are a lot of great restaurants/pubs right there in Willie Mays Plaza, across the street, or within a couple blocks...Public House, Zeke's Sports Bar, The Paragon to name a few we really like.

    Of course all that is just in SF, there are MANY more things elsewhere in the Bay Area and beyond: Jack London Square (Oakland), Telegraph Ave (Berkeley), Marin Headlands, North Coast, Pebble Beach/Carmel/Monterey, Napa, Lake Tahoe, etc...if you ever make it out again, highly recommend Lake Tahoe, any time of the year it's awesome.
