This is a great place for walking, with either kids or adults, especially around sunset. The city and harbor lights, moored yachts and giant cranes that look like frozen, frigid draft animals stolen from an imagery past, are all quite beautiful in the shifting sunsets. There is an excellent farmers' market on Sundays and a ferry terminal if you want to take a boat across the San Francisco Bay. You can spend no money at all, or stop for ice cream, food or drinks. I like Heinolds First and Last Chance Saloon, an old time building with a nearby log cabin, purportedly used by Jack London during the Alaska gold rush. There is very tasty Arabian food and cocktails at Dyafa, among the many choices available. The Plank Beer Garden, with bowling and other games for both kids and adults is popular. Walking nearby in Oakland, there is the Slainte Irish pub on Broadway, interesting and fun, and the Beer Revolution on 3rd Street. Check out who is playing at Yoshi's Jazz Club, an excellent music venue.
