Events And Tickets in San Francisco

San Francisco is an amazing place to visit. There are tons of things for tourists to do in the city by the bay, from hanging out on the beach and eating at the famous fisherman's wharf to hitting the City at night for a Giants game and a good old fashion night on the town. I wanted to go ahead and write about some things to do in San Francisco for anyone planning on visiting who's never been, or for those that live in the bay area that are looking for something new to do.

First off, this is a Giants Blog, so you know I need to mention the San Francisco Giants. My favorite thing to do in San Francisco during the spring, summer and fall is attend Giants games at the beautiful AT&T Park. Now the Giants don't get the Yankees or Red Sox Tickets coming to town for interleague play this season, but there still will be plenty exciting match-ups coming up in 2009 and plenty of cheap San Francisco Giants tickets available as the Giants write another chapter in their rivalry vs. the dreaded LA Dodgers as well as the cross bay rival Oakland Athletics while attempting to reach the postseason for the first time since 2003.

After an afternoon or evening at the ballpark, go out and hit the town! Right across the street from the yard lies the famous Momo's Restaurant, an Amercian bistro. The drinks are a tad pricey, but they have very good food and a nice outdoor/indoor venue with a view of AT&T Park and the San Francisco Bay. The other hot spots are mostly located on Broadway where there is a whole strip of bright lights and extravagent venues. And to cure your hunger, grab a bite to eat at the reasonably priced Mels' Drive-In located on Van Ness, Mission or Geary St. in downtown SF, a traditional favorite since the 50's.

If your not much of a "downtown" kind of person or not much of a sports fan, then check out Fishermans Wharf, the beautiful San Francisco Bay and the monumental Golden Gate Bridge or take a tour out to "The Rock" and check out Alcatraz while getting a look at the City from out on the water, it really is a site to see. There also is the option of heading north of the Golden gate an hour or so and hitting Sonoma County's Wine Country.

I hope anyone who needs this finds this post helpful and informative. If you have any more questions about what to do in the City and where to do it, don't hesitate to e-mail us or check out Best Show Las Vegas' Sports Blog about upcoming shows/concerts that are coming to the Bay Area.
