Our plane got into San Francisco at about 9:00 a.m. on a Friday and even though it was an early morning, it was nice to have the full day there.
Our hotel was called Parc 55 and it was a great location, right by the Powell Street cable car turn around. We went to a dim sum restaurant called Yank Sing that was highly recommended by my parents and travel books. It was in the financial district so after were were done with our great meal, we walked over to the Ferry building and then wondered around the Embarcadero, Chinatown, Little Italy, Grace Cathedral and the cable car museum and did tons of walking just seeing the city.
For dinner we went to a nice Italian restaurant called Kuleto's which was close to the hotel.
