With LiNC just a few weeks away, we want you to get the most out of your time here! Whether you're coming from across the country, around the world or right across the Bay, here are some of our top recommendations of what to do in SF, from some familiar faces at Lithium.
Yerba Buena Gardens | @JennC Just right across from the Marriot Marquis where we'll be for LiNC, this is the perfect place to retreat for some fresh air! Check out the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial, a beautiful waterfall with famous quotes from MLK, or stop by Samovar Tea Lounge for a quick bite to eat.
Ride a Cable Car | @BeverlyD What better way to get around San Fran then to travel by a means that has been in operation since 1873. Basically, there are three cable car routes in operation, and it helps to know their respective destinations. Grab on and have fun!!!
Lunch at Delica (Ferry Building) | @JaniceK For a low-key lunch with good people watching, grab a bento box at Delica in the Ferry Building, sit outside watching the ferries come & go. Just watch out for the seagulls- apparently they like Japanese food (or any food for that matter)! Wash it down with a gingersnap from Miette bakery (also at the Ferry Bldg). Enjoy!
Golden Gate Park | @RichRe Whether you're an adult or a kid, you will enjoy this place and the sense of wonder that it imparts. It's set in beautiful Golden Gate Park and is the "only place in the world to house an aquarium, planetarium, and natural history museum, as well as innovative programs in scientific research and education—all under one living roof."
Zazie's | @SahanaU A local family-owned restaurant with the freshest produce and most delicious brunch menu. Pro-tip: Dine outside on the patio and order an elder flower mimosa to accompany your brunch entree.
Coit Tower | @NicolA It's just far enough from the conference location to be considered exercise and the stairs to the top will get your heart racing. If you need more incentive, you'll be rewarded with an amazing view of the city, including two bridges.
Land's End | @KellySull Perhaps one of the cooler hikes in the bay area- opens your eyes to the fact that in 7x7 miles of concrete jungle that is SF, there are always nooks and crannies to escape to (if possible) even more beautiful sights.
