• Why is the Golden Gate Bridge so popular but no one cares about the bay bridge?

    Best answer: The two bridges were completed within one year of another. Yet, the Golden Gate, which links the Pacific Ocean with SF Bay, is special contrasted to the Oakland Bay Bridge, which despite being longer (in two segments) only crosses the SF Bay. In addition, the setting (environment) of the GG Bridge is spectacular,... show more
    Best answer: The two bridges were completed within one year of another. Yet, the Golden Gate, which links the Pacific Ocean with SF Bay, is special contrasted to the Oakland Bay Bridge, which despite being longer (in two segments) only crosses the SF Bay. In addition, the setting (environment) of the GG Bridge is spectacular, spanning bodies of land that have great natural appeal and it was, and remains, an engineering marvel. Also, the GG Bridge has earned a reputation of symbol of SF, one that those who know it, feel is well-deserved. It has a magic, romance, and aura, the Oakland Bay Bridge has never achieved.

  • Why does it seem like there's so much more black people in San fransisco then demographics say?

    Is it because demographics don't include the amount of homeless ones that migrate there from all over the country because the reputation of taking good care of people and all the black neighborhoods are close to downtown so they come downtown and loiter in the streets all day and ones that come in from Oakland... show more

  • How does anyone afford to visit San Francisco for a week?

    Best answer: You could stay in an airport hotel or someplace in the East Bay near a Bart station. There is also the Water's Edge hotel in Tiburon or the Waterfront hotel in Oakland both just steps from the ferry to SF. You may have some luck if you try some of the motor courts near the marina [my personal favorite is the... show more
    Best answer: You could stay in an airport hotel or someplace in the East Bay near a Bart station. There is also the Water's Edge hotel in Tiburon or the Waterfront hotel in Oakland both just steps from the ferry to SF.

    You may have some luck if you try some of the motor courts near the marina [my personal favorite is the Hotel Del Sol] or the smaller motels/hotels in the Haight, Richmond or Sunset.

    Downtown hotels will be expensive and traffic is going to be awful with uber and lyft priced higher because of Dreamforce. I wouldn't be surprised if the same is true of airB&B. Smart of you not to rent a car. SF has a good public transportation system and even cabs would be cheaper than paying the rent and parking for a car.

    I've found that Trip Advisor is a good place to research hotels you can search by budget and location to idea of prices for the week of Dreamforce.

    Good luck.

  • I rented a car from FOX RENTA A CAR. Will they charge me for cleaning the seats?

    Best answer: Just wipe it off with a damp towel or paper towel.
    You won't get charged for that sort of dirt- they always go over the returned vehicles anyway.

  • What is so special about the Bay Area in California?

    I grew up in Placer County, CA (Loomis to be exact with a population of 6,000 people), and I love being surrounded by a lot of nature, and very little city.

    I grew up in Placer County, CA (Loomis to be exact with a population of 6,000 people), and I love being surrounded by a lot of nature, and very little city. I do not enjoy the "city life", I do not enjoy being around a lot of people, I enjoy having fishing, hunting, and skiing in my backyard. I am not hugely into food scenes, and am not a food snob. The Bay Area is unnecessarily expensive. After I have lived in Placer county for 23, the company that I worked for in Sacramento transferred me short term (for 2 year) to their San Francisco office), so I lived there for two years, and hated every bit of it. There was very little nature everywhere around me, there were too many people, and there was nothing to do unless you participated in city life. Everyone there thought that the Bay Area was the greatest thing ever, and when living in Placer County, everyone aspired to living in the Bay Area with knowing little about it. I understand that a lot of people enjoy the city life, and more power to them, but it is not for me; put me on some homestead in the middle of nowhere with my friends and family, and I would be content.

  • What is it like to go kayaking on Monterey Bay?

    Best answer: I kayak here all the time, my ideal chill and relaxing kayak is to start at the Breakwater or San Carlos beach and then head out to the mile marker buoy.

    Best answer: I kayak here all the time, my ideal chill and relaxing kayak is to start at the Breakwater or San Carlos beach and then head out to the mile marker buoy. This can be lots of fun especially if there are small rollers and definitely no wind. Depending on the wind conditions I drop down to Lovers Point and then turn around and head back! All in all maybe 5 or 6 miles of kayaking! This also will guarantee no animal encounters. If I want to see the animals I launch from the same location and then just jam down to the Aquarium/Hopkins Point and stay on the inside of the kelp.
