Food Scene
We found the chowder soup to be better than average. But what stood out (for us) was the ability to sit and people watch amidst the busier tourists. However, for an even better soup, see Solaire.

Food's a bit pricy, as is true for any themed restaurant. Not as real as Forbes Island, but the imitation rock, jungle-like flora and animated animals, and waterfall are amusing to dine by.

Solaire is south of San Francisco, in Santa Cruz. The Clam Chowder is excellent, especially with sourdough bread. The Boardwalk at the Wharf is a carnival experience that dates back to the 1950s.

An excellent choice of the American burger, especially with a museum tour in the nearby the park. Burgers are grilled over an open flame, and the condiment section, WOW! Limited seating/parking.

Trip into San Francisco's past--1950s and earlier. Okay cuisine & bar, ocean view. Underneath is a display of artifacts from the "Fun House" 1950s carnival park. Below, a cave, Euripedes/Ken's?

Sightseeing
A nice stop before walking the Golden Gate Bridge. We liked the photo booth, where the backgrounds are digitally added in to make you appear as if you are standing on top of the Golden Gate Bridge.

The Japanese Tea garden is a tea hut with an amazing garden. We were married on the Moon/Drum bridge. Tea & cookies are okay, but the beauty is truly something to take in w/a museum tour and burger.

A museum with a lot of natural appeal, truly a couple experience. And the Japanese Tea Garden is across the street as well as Jenny's Burgers, about a half block out of the park, south on 9th Ave.

Nice focal point to begin a day-long tour of a nearby City, Santa Cruz. It's a sort of Coney Island. Website: https://www.google.com/search?q=Egyptian+Museum+in+San+Jose%2c+ca&rlz=1C1CHFA_enUS508US

Safari West is more than just a 400-acre open wildlife preserve. It also features tasty meals and lodging right there with the animals and other wildlife inhabitants. Why go to Africa or elsewhere?

Akin to the Safari West, but in lieu of just lodging among the creatures of the wild, the B&B includes breakfast by elephant. Great for a few photos and for promotional events.

San Francisco has a narrow climate range, about 40 to 80 degrees. It's nice to visit a place where one can skate upon ice. During holidays, there's an outside skating rink near Embarcadero.
