We had been to this area before, in fact we were there during the Rodney King riots. We were down in China town when we saw a police helicopter fly over and tell eveyone to get off the streets. At the time we were staying on Nob Hill in the San Francisco Suites. By the time we got back there was a mob coming from Market street. We stayed inside for around an hour. When we went outside they had turned cars over, broken all the windows out of the drug store which was located in the Freemont Hotel. No trouble after that day, but it was still scary. The biggest riots were in L.A.
Here's a picture of what it looks like downtown.

We stayed in a campground in Isleston which was around 40 miles out of the Bay Area. They had a BART system, Bay Area Transit System, around 5 miles from us, so we decided to try it rather than drive into town. They dropped is off right at the trolley turn around on Market St. When we returned that night it was fully lit up like day time and it was 12 midnight. Great trip.
Susie loves to ride the trolleys.

I always go for the crabs and seafood when we go to the wharf.

When you hear about Alcatraz, now you can say you have seen it.

We took a tour and walked in the "Yard ". Then checked out all the cells. They let me sit in one of the cells where the movie was filmed. Remember the Escapee From Alcatraz?

Susie in the cell block.

This was an old post I did a long time ago when we visited SF in one of our timeshares. you can tell we were considerability younger.

Some of the pictures had been posted wrong so I decided to correct it and go visit again.
