tourist in san francisco

[Reference:  List of things to do in San Francisco - from my friend Andy]
By Car: There is a 49 Mile Scenic Route that takes you around San Francisco (and marked by small signs, but first print it out in case you miss the signs). This route takes you through or near several of San Francisco’s cool spots - be sure to stop and take pictures! - including: 1) Presidio & Golden Gate Bridge
a) Stop and walk to the middle of it from SF side
b) Optionally drive across the Bridge to the Marin Headlands for a fantastic view of the Bridge and San Francisco 2) Top of Twin Peaks - A birds eye view of the center of the city. You may want to return at night - clear nights are particularly beautiful. 3) Golden Gate Park - Golden Gate Park is larger than New York’s Central Park, and is home to several attractions. To name a few:
a) The de Young Museum
b) California Academy of Sciences
c) Golden Gate Park Aquarium
d) The Conservatory of Flowers
e) Buffalo (Yes, there are live buffalo in the middle of SF)
