A Premier I.V. Doc Location
If you're going to San Francisco…be sure to bookmark this page! It's your launching pad to of some of the city's greatest hits. It also keeps The I.V. Doc's info handy in case you climb one too many of SF's legendary hills, soak up too much warm California sun, or are depleted by overindulgence or illness.
Yes, Fisherman's Wharf is over-the-top touristy, but there are lots of good reasons why: savory chowders and steamed crabs; postcard views of the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz and San Francisco Bay: Pier 39 shopping, restaurants and lounging sea lions; street performers, bay cruises, Segway rentals, Ghirardelli Square, and tons more!
Golden Gate Park
Take time to explore this lush three-mile expanse stretching eastward from Ocean Beach to the Haight-Ashbury neighborhood. Notable stops: the Japanese Tea Garden, the fine arts DeYoung Museum, California Academy of Sciences, the 2,000 species of the Conservatory of Flowers, trails, picnic areas, and numerous playgrounds for the kids.
No visit would be complete without claiming bragging rights to riding a classic San Francisco cable car. Hop aboard one of the three remaining lines, now a National Historic Landmark, and travel back in time to the days when the system spared horses from climbing the steep hills. Stop in at the Cable Car Museum to see the enormous wheels and underground cables that power the system.
Bars, Bites & Buys
