We had a lot of fun here at About.com Travel a couple of weeks ago creating a master guide of things not to do in destinations all over the world. Every where from London and New York to South America and India were covered in the post.
I put together a list for San Francisco of course, which is half tongue in cheek but includes several tips that I think really can make or break a trip to the city by the bay including what to wear and how to approach renting a car.
For those visiting San Francisco for the first time, I also have a list of things you Should do before you arrive, just to make your trip smoother and to make sure it is as fufilling as possible. Here is my simple three step guide:
- Make Sure to Book Your Hotel Well in Advance. The best hotels fill up early, especially in the high season.

- Make Restaurant Reservations Before You Go. Top San Francisco restaurants often have waiting lists weeks long, choose your dining establishment and book your table well ahead of time.

- Book Your San Francisco Tours Way Ahead of Time. Booking your tour in Advance saves you Both Time and Money as big discounts are often offered by companies trying to fill slots ahead of time.
