San Francisco Tips
- BRING A JACKET! It can be foggy and cold year-round; don’t leave home without a jacket!
- BOOK ALCATRAZ! Tickets can be hard to come by, so book your Alcatraz tour ASAP!
- MAKE RESERVATIONS! Popular restaurants are busy year-round (read below for some of our favorites).
- BRING WALKING SHOES! There are lots — and I mean LOTS — of sites to see, so bring comfortable shoes!
- NEED DIRECTIONS? San Franciscans are friendly — don’t hesitate to ask!
- SFPD ARE FANTASTIC! They will gladly help with directions or with assistance if needed!

The Yellow Submarine – Marc and Paul grew up with Jack and Eli and have been eating at their mom’s sub shop in the inner Sunset since childhood, and they still make the best subs around, hands down (in our humble opinion)!
