How To Have The Perfect Day in San Francisco | Travel Guide

What’s up,? You’re watching Vagabrothers, and this is our guide to San Francisco. Let’s go. Good morning Vagabuddies. What’s going on? Welcome back to the channel. It is a beautiful day here in San Francisco. We’re here for a couple of days, but we’re going to do our best to have the perfect day in San Francisco. What are we up to today, bro? Well we’re currently starting the day at Ritual Coffee, which is a local roaster here in Hayes Valley, which is a cool little pedestrian area. There’re all these sidewalk coffee shops, and although we were right around the corner from the Painted Ladies, the famous houses from Full House, we’re going to go try to show you the essence of the city.. different neighborhoods, different historical sites, cool bars and restaurants. So that is the goal for the day, and so far we’re starting off with this coffee. Everything’s from Costa Rica. It’s all direct trade “pura vita” coffee, and it’s pretty good. Let’s get this adventure started, shall we? We shall. We’re going to go to the founding birth spot of San Francisco. Stop number one is the San Francisco Presidio. Just in front of us is the San Francisco Bay, the largest natural harbor in California. The Golden Gate Bridge and the entrance to the bay, known as the Golden Gate, is just over there. But this is where it all began for San Francisco. Presidios were Spanish colonial military garrisons named because they preside over the area, and they were designed to protect the Spanish system of missions, which was the backbone of California. Twenty-six missions from San Diego to Sonoma to our north. There were four military garrisons: San Diego, Monterey Santa Barbara and here in San Francisco. It was built in 1776, designed to protect from all enemies, but never fought a battle. It was eventually taken over by the United States military, which recently turned it over to the park system. This is pretty cool. We’ve just stumbled upon actual archaeologists on a dig at the old Presidio site, and it says questions welcomed. So I’m wondering if we can ask some questions. What do you guys find down there when you guys are digging? What’s the most common artifact that you find? The most common artifact that we do find.. a lot of tile and like structural ceramic. So much tile… so it’s just like..oh, more tile, more orange piece. I mean just look look at this. There’s a tile right there. There’s the orange right there. There’s the…. here’s more right here. It’s pretty cool to see this going down right here. I remember being in elementary school back in San Diego and going to the Presidio in San Diego and having the opportunity to help archaeologist with an excavation, and I think that that was what really instilled in me the appreciation for archaeology, and one of the reasons why I studied anthropology and archaeology in college. So it’s really cool to come here to the Presidio, see young enthusiastic archaeologists digging up a bit of the past and trying to understand more about the foundation of this place. Most of what you see here is from the American period after California was annexed by the United States following the Mexican-American War. But the fortunes of San Francisco and California as a state would change drastically in the year 1848 with the discovery of one important metal….. gold. Our next stop is the Hyde Street Pier, and this is a great place to really get a grip on what happened here during the Gold Rush. In 1848, San Francisco had around a thousand people. By the end of 1849, there were over 25,000 people. What changed was when a man named James Marshall on the South Fork of the American River, not far from here ,found a large golden nugget. When Mr.Marshall found that large gold nugget on January 24 1848, he supposedly said,” Eureka,” which means in classical Greek, “I found it.” And it’s still the motto of the Golden State. Gold prospectors came from all over the world, some by land, but most by sea. San Francisco was a major port of entry for people trying to strike a rich. Gold here was so strong that the sailors that brought the miners here also got caught up in the fever and left their ships here in the harbor abandoned, creating what was known as the Armada of Golden Dreams. Many of the immigrants who came here are still known today.. Levi Strauss started a dry goods store and eventually jeans; Ghirardelli, an Italian immigrant, who made chocolate, and Wells Fargo, a bank that specialized in shipping gold bullion across the states from the mines. There’re many immigrants whose names we’ve never learned about in the history books . So to learn more, we’re going to head over to Chinatown. We have just exited the cable cars, and usually on our channel, we really encourage you guys not to do the touristy things, but when in San Francisco, most definitely ride the cable car. That was one of the coolest experiences I think I’ve ever had, man, honestly. You are easily amused, but it was very cool. The cable cars are definitely very iconic and so are these Victorian houses that we’ve been passing along the way. San Francisco is unique in the United States in that most of the city is the same style of architecture. It’s a building style that start in the 1800s, but really became uniform after the 1906 fire. Basically, there was a massive earthquake that ruptured gas lines and caused a fire that destroyed three quarters of the city, displaced half the population and killed thousands of people. It was rebuilt in this style that you see now, and there are still some historical bits from before, such as the place we’re going right now… Chinatown. Now we’re in Chinatown. Along with the 49ers came tons of immigrants from China, eventually making up one in ten San Franciscans. But they were prohibited from mining on the basis of race, and so they built up a huge service industry around the mining community. Chinese quickly realized that in order to survived, they had to adapt Chinese culture to American tastes, especially with food. And on that note, it’s lunchtime. Okay, so we’ve ordered a little bit of everything. There’s a bunch of different regional cuisines here, but we have some Cantonese style dim sum; We have some Taiwanese style chow mein; and we have some Cantonese style pork char siu. And everything looks incredible. And now we arrive to Marko’s favorite period of time, ever. We’re jumping forward through a couple of decades. But we’re right next to Chinatown, here at Citylights Book Shop. In the 1950s there was a generation of poets, writers, and Bohemians called The Beat Generation, most famously Jack Kerouac, Bukowski, Allen Ginsberg, Ferlinghetti, a bunch of people. they all kind of lived in Chinatown because the rents were cheap. And this bookshop was the center of their San Francisco Renaissance, kind of an alternative to post-World War Two conformity of buying a white picket fence house in the suburbs. These guys were out here having fun, and yeah. So if you like On the Road, a lot of it takes place here in San Francisco. but more specifically the Dharma Bums, Jack Kerouac’s lesser known novel features a scene where all these poets came together the first time at a poetry reading in a bookshop. This is the bookshop.. Citylights. The Specks Twelve Adlers across the street from Citylights bookshop, and this is where a lot of those writers we were talking about used to hang out after poetry readings or maybe before. It’s a cool spot. It’s one of those bars where you see like a ton of different memorabilia to keep your attention for hours at a time, and the beer’s not bad either. It’s one of those type of places where you can just drink all day long because it’s dark. It’ll be this dark in here when it’s actually dark outside. So it’s one of those places where you can spend a long time sitting and thinking, drinking and being creative. I’ll leave you guys with a recommendation. One of my favorite things is listening to Jack Kerouac read his writing over Steve Allen jazz piano. So there’s one that starts off, “There was a little alley in San Francisco,” assuming it means this one right here. I’ll leave a link in the description. All right so moving forward in history>>>>We have moved to the neighborhood of Haight Ashbury, and we are at the former home of the world famous, revolutionary rock band, The Grateful Dead. They lived in this house from 1966 to 1968. At the time, they were known as the Warlocks, and we actually just had a moment to speak to the current owner. He said when they bought it, the place was totally destroyed. There were 30 Deadheads living in this home, and the person who sold to him said that if you buy this house you will never find peace. There’s a constant stream of people coming. There is a constant stream[ Look at the tree] of people coming here and paying homage to the Grateful Dead. If you do come here, be polite, be respectful, but pay homage. And don’t don’t carve your name into the tree, okay? Obviously, Jerry’s been here. This is the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love 1967 when the counterculture foundation that the beatnik laid blossomed into full-scale alternative lifestyle here in San Francisco. Ever since then San Francisco has been a center of alternative culture in the United States, and we’re right down the block from where the hippie revolution took place in 1967 and then took over the world. Started here and spread everywhere else. Perfect place to catch a sunset for your perfect day in San Francisco is Twin Peaks. No, not the cult classic David Lynch show of the1990s, the recent Netflix reboot, but the mountain in the center of the city. Well, it’s actually two mountains. That’s why it’s called Twin Peaks. Touche` We’ve made our way down from the top of Twin Peaks to the Mission District, just kind of like the Latino District. This is where the mission was, and it continues to be “muy latino,” which is great. We are on our way to a restaurant, which supposedly has the best burrito in the country. We’re going to do our due diligence here and make sure it’s the best. We are from San Diego, which means we’re absolute snobs when it comes to Mexican food. We think we have the best burritos in the country. Let’s see what it’s like here. This is the carne asada burrito. It’s a good burrito. It’s a good burrito. It’s not the best burrito. So there’s definitely two sides this neighborhood. There’s what we just saw and we’re going to kind of finish it up at one of the newer spots, the newer side of the Mission District by getting a cocktail. A pretty sweet day. A pretty sweet city, epic city. Really dig San Francisco …great vibes, beautiful architecture, cool people and good restaurants, and good bars. You can’t really ask for too much more. Maybe a little bit more clement weather throughout the year. But today was a really sunny day, and we had a good time. Bless you. Bless you. I love S.F. We’ve got to spend more time up here. I know that we did not cover everything. If you are a local or if you’ve been here, and you have your own comments, throw them down in the comments section. And enough of this SoCal -NorCal beef. We love you guys up here. Honestly. Yeah. I’ve got to sneeze again. I think what he was about to say is: if you enjoyed this video, please give it a big thumbs- up; share with your friends, and subscribe and turn on notifications, if you have not already. Give us your tips down the comment section, and we’ll try to include it in a future video and hopefully come back here to San Francisco soon. In the meantime stay curious, keep exploring, and we’ll see you guys on the road. Peace.

  6. THE SHITSKINS HAVE A SAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Diseased Streets 18 February 2018
    An NBC Bay Area Investigation reveals a dangerous concoction of drug needles, garbage, and feces lining the streets of downtown San Francisco. The Investigative Unit surveyed more than 150 blocks, including some of the city’s top tourist destinations, and discovered conditions that are now being compared to some of the worst slums in the world.
    The NBC Bay Area Investigative Unit surveyed 153 blocks of downtown San Francisco in search of trash, needles, and feces. The investigation revealed trash littered across every block. The survey also found 41 blocks dotted with needles and 96 blocks sullied with piles of feces.

    Overall Sanitation Score by Block in Downtown San Francisco
    (see link for interactive map)
    We gave each block a score based on how many needles, instances of feces were found on the block, as well as if trash were present. Each needle is one point, each instance of feces is one point and presence of trash is three points.
    Overall Score
    0 (cleanest)
    (dirtiest) 15

    How dirty is San Francisco? An NBC Bay Area Investigation reveals a dangerous mix of drug needles, garbage, and feces throughout downtown San Francisco. The Investigative Unit surveyed 153 blocks of the city – the more than 20-mile stretch includes popular tourist spots like Union Square and major hotel chains. The area – bordered by Van Ness Avenue, Market Street, Post Street and Grant Avenue – is also home to City Hall, schools, playgrounds, and a police station.

    As the Investigative Unit photographed nearly a dozen hypodermic needles scattered across one block, a group of preschool students happened to walk by on their way to an afternoon field trip to citiy hall.

    “We see poop, we see pee, we see needles, and we see trash,” said teacher Adelita Orellana. “Sometimes they ask what is it, and that’s a conversation that’s a little difficult to have with a 2-year old, but we just let them know that those things are full of germs, that they are dangerous, and they should never be touched.”

    In light of the dangerous conditions, part of Orellana’s responsibilities now include teaching young children how to avoid the contamination.

    'There’s Poop in There'

    “The floor is dirty,” said A’Nylah Reed, a 3-year-old student at the preschool, who irately explained having to navigate dirty conditions on her walks to school.

    “There is poop in there,” she exclaimed. “That makes me angry.”

    Kim Davenport, A’nyla’s mother, often walks her daughter to the Compass preschool on Leavenworth Street in San Francisco. She said she often has to pull her daughter out of the way in order to keep her from stepping on needles and human waste. “I just had to do that this morning!”

    The Investigate Unit spent three days assessing conditions on the streets of downtown San Francisco and discovered trash on each of the 153 blocks surveyed. While some streets were littered with items as small as a candy wrapper, the vast majority of trash found included large heaps of garbage, food, and discarded junk. The investigation also found 100 drug needles and more than 300 piles of feces throughout downtown.

    A needle found on the streets of downtown San Francisco was one of 100 discovered as part of an NBC Bay Area Investigation into potentially dangerous conditions (Dec. 28, 2017).

    Dried Feces can Lead to Airborne Viruses

    “If you do get stuck with these disposed needles you can get HIV, Hepatitis C, Hepatitis B, and a variety of other viral diseases,” said Dr. Lee Riley, an infectious disease expert at University of California, Berkeley. He warned that once fecal matter dries, it can become airborne, releasing potentially dangerous viruses, such as the rotavirus. “If you happen to inhale that, it can also go into your intestine,” he said. The results can prove fatal, especially in children.

    Riley has researched conditions across the poorest slums of the world. His book titled, “Slum Health,” examines health problems that are created by extreme poverty.

    San Francisco Compared to Some of the Dirtiest Slums in the World

    Based on the findings of the Investigative Unit survey, Riley believes parts of the city may be even dirtier than slums in some developing countries.

    “The contamination is … much greater than communities in Brazil or Kenya or India,” he said. He notes that in those countries, slum dwellings are often long-term homes for families and so there is an attempt to make the surroundings more livable. Homeless communities in San Francisco, however, are often kicked out from one part of town and forced to relocate to another. The result is extreme contamination, according to Riley.
    Supervisor Hillary Ronen is convinced the solution to cleaning up San Francisco's dirty streets is contingent on adding more temporary shelter beds for the homeless (Jan 8, 2018).

    'We Aren’t Addressing the Root Cause'

    “Unacceptable. Absolutely unacceptable,” said Supervisor Hillary Ronen. “We're losing tourists. We're losing conventions in San Francisco. All of this is happening because we aren't addressing the root cause, which is we need more temporary beds for street homelessness.”

    Ronen believes San Francisco has been too focused on permanent housing for the homeless and that the city has neglected to provide enough temporary shelter, which can provide the homeless a respite from the streets. The city currently has about 2,000 temporary beds. Ronen, however, believes an additional 1,000 are needed, at a cost of about $25 million.

    “We need to find a source of revenue,” said Ronen. “Whether that's putting something on the ballot to raise business taxes or taking a look at our general fund and re-allocating money towards that purpose and taking it away from something else in the city.”
    Mohammed Nuru, Director of San Francisco Public Works, says cleaning human waste, trash, and needles from the city's sidewalks costs his department about $30 million each year (Jan 12, 2018).

    San Francisco Spends $30 Million Cleaning Feces, Drug Needles

    Until the problem is fixed, Mohammed Nuru, the Director of the Public Works Department, is charged with the towering task of cleaning the streets, over and over again. “Yes, we can clean, he said, “and then go back a few hours later, and it looks as if it was never cleaned. So is that how you want to spend your money?”

    The 2016-2017 budget for San Francisco Public Works includes $60.1 million for “Street Environmental Services.” The budget has nearly doubled over the past five years. Originally, that money, was intended to clean streets, not sidewalks. According to city ordinances, sidewalks are the responsibility of property owners. However, due to the severity of the contamination in San Francisco, Public Works has inherited the problem of washing sidewalks. Nuru estimates that half of his street cleaning budget – about $30 million – goes towards cleaning up feces and needles from homeless encampments and sidewalks.

    'Human Tragedy' in San Francisco

    A single pile of human waste, said Nuru, takes at least 30 minutes for one of his staffers to clean. “The steamer has to come. He has to park the steamer. He's got to come out with his steamer, disinfect, steam clean, roll up and go.”

    Asked if he’d be willing to give up part of his budget and allocate it to more directly addressing the homeless problem – which would likely alleviate his cleaning problem – Nuru said, “The Board of Supervisors, the mayor – those are decisions that they need to make." He added, “I want to continue cleaning and I want to be able to continue to provide services. The Public Works Department provides services seven days a week, 24 hours a day.”

    Ronen acknowledges that finding the money to provide 1,000 additional beds for the homeless may very well take years. The city is planning on opening three new Navigation Centers for homeless people by the summer, but two centers will also be closing.

    “We're not going to make a huge dent in this problem unless we deal with some underlying major social problems and issues,” she said. “There's a human tragedy happening in San Francisco.”

  7. I'm from San Francisco too and I love it here… I love this comment section and this video cus I'm used to people saying bad things about SF and why California sucks as a whole. It always hurts to hear those but seeing people compliment my home is very refreshing, thx for posting this

  8. you forgot the Castro & City Hall and literally La Taqueria is all hype, the best burrito place is El Farolito, literally a block away from L.T. !

  9. San Francisco, “the city”, is an amazing place to visit!! There is sooooo much to see and do, it never gets boring.

  10. Wow! You guys really killed it. Your vlog style is super inspiring and made mus want to go re-experience places in our own city. We are so glad you featured San Francisco so beautifully!

  11. I worked in San Francisco as a Production Assistant for a week. It was dope. Then the trip home happened…. Check Check Check it out!

  12. Hahaha Bolshevik blog)) It's funny) Hello from Moscow! Watch you're videos and enjoy beautiful places

  13. It’s amazing how most of these successful gold rush immigrants were Europeans and not Mexican or even African

  14. I'm thinking of moving to San Fran.. but is everyone going to talk about how their coffee is direct trade or not? Ugh..

  15. Great video and recommendations for visitors to San Francisco. One item: burritos are actually Tex-Mex cuisine and not considered authentic Mexican cuisine by the supermajority of Mexicans, except in a tiny area along the U.S.-Mexico border on both sides. The rest of the country doesn't consider it Mexican food. I know. Boring point.

  16. Ritual Coffee in Hayes Valley!!!  Great place to chill and have a bit of caffeine!  My…this corner sure has changed over the years.  I lived here back in the mid 90s…and…return almost every year to enjoy The City and the Hayes Valley/Fillmore area…among many other great areas in town.

  17. Thanks for sharing! You are so gifted. I love to travel also:)I not long ago shared my first ever movie – My travel diary in Queenstown. Eep!Would cherish your feed-back on my video/editing and so I am able to develop like you!

  18. What about reports of it being over run by homeless drug addicts defecating in the streets? The druggies shooting up and leaving used needles in the streets?

  19. Very good boys!!! You highlight a lot of important and original things about our lovely San Francisco.

  20. These videos are so informative and I love it! They give me such a great guide before my travels to think about content and where I want to go with it! I followed their advice and that was probably the best burrito I have, and ever will consume.

  21. La Taqueria is my favorite place. My grandfather would insist on going when he visited. So it’s nostalgic i guess. The chicken tacos is what to get.

  22. You guys left out golden gate park, but that's an entire day on its own. Another suggestion I have is to hike the (very short but still mildly sketchy trail) onto the bay battlements, it looks out onto the bridge and some of my best travel photos are there. You also get to see the old torn out battlements and brush up on your ww2 history. (Just be sure to pee before you go because the bathrooms are literally the worst I've ever seen)

  23. Want to know where to go on a budget? I'd recommend checking out Map2Next – it's a travel discovery platform that connects recommendations from top content creators, bloggers, and friends with maps to make things simple on-the-go!
    It's launching in SF in the next few weeks. Be on the email list:

  24. Best travel show on YouTube!! So cool to see that you guys covered a lot of sites and even the history of the city! I love the way these videos are done and the soundtrack is fantastic!

  25. you haven't given the palace of fine its justice, also if you want an awesome sunset I recommend standing at the hill right at the golden gate to the ocean side.

  26. wow probably the most fun and easy appreciation of history of SF that i found. Will continue to follow!

  27. Can somone tell me if i can get to six flags discovery in vallejo from san fransisco using public transportation ?

  28. Great tour. I love SF and have visited once when I was 21 😉.
    As you love books and audiobooks, check out the Book Scavenger series by Jennifer Chambliss Bertman. Fun and easy to listen to, great character development and the ADVENTURES.

  29. Great job on the history of SF, guys … but it would've been great if you had tried a more authentic Chinese restaurant that is indicative of where the locals would eat. San Tung (infamous for their dry-fried chicken wings) in the Sunset is a good start, and follow it up with some amazing egg tarts from Golden Gate Bakery (an institution!). El Farolito gets my vote for best burrito over La Taqueria, but everyone has their opinions. Also, SF is the home of small batch artisan ice cream shops – we have SO MANY. Gotta check those out – Bi-Rite Creamery, Humphry Slocombe, Marco Polo, Smitten, Garden Creamery just to name a few. Also, the thumbnail says "San Fran" – we locals wouldn't ever refer to The City by that moniker, we'd rather say the name in full, or call it SF. Never San Fran, please! Happy Travels, Vagabrothers!

  30. Ok guys I am in the north bay 14 miles out of San Francisco (across the Golden Gate ) You need to come to our side of the bay San Rafael, Marin County, 94901 (Going towards Wine Country ) and check us out . I grew up in SF but moved to Marin , look us up , Thoughts?

  31. Oily fried chow mein and greasy pork meat? Where are all the vegetables? It looks absolutely unhealthy!

  32. I have wax in my mustache and I'm drinking fair trade coffee, so you can plainly see that I'm pretty cool. Wait…Am I trying too hard?

  33. It's practically impossible to do a thorough list of places to see (things to do) in S.F. Having said that, your video was quite beautiful and well edited. I always take out-of-towners to see the group of people who gather in Washington Square in the morning to do Tai Chi. That entire neighborhood (North Beach) is perfect for a scenic walk. A bit later, after breakfast, we pay a visit to the Tin How temple on Waverly Place in Chinatown. In Chinatown you can't beat the red Blossom Tea Company (Grant Avenue) for high-quality tea, which is much better and fresher than the packaged stuff you get at your supermarket.

  34. I'm glad to know that it gets older than the 20th century there. I would think people from San Diego would have better food on everything. I notice that most places have sucky food, even in comparison to American towns in general.

  35. Wow. You managed to talk about the history of SF without once mentioning that they were built by indigenous people who were enslaved. So much for that anthropology degree.

  36. I love SF but it is starting to go in decline with high prices, high Homelessness rates, and feces everywhere.

  37. Sorry, jack, Lawrence we’re living in North Beach. A vibrAnt Italian community. Fun fact Amedeo Giannini, founder of the bank of Italy, took his cal
    Cash to his vacation house before the fire got it. He was able to do loans days later. While the he big banks had to wait for their vaults. To cool. The Bank of Italy became Bank of America.

  38. You guys made me cry. If you listen to the prevailing opinions about San Francisco you'd think it was a sewer. This is my hometown and it is the best place on planet earth. San Francisco is a beautiful place and always will be. As you guys have proven, the best is not hard to find if you take the time to look for it. Thank you!

  39. There's a new taqueria that's opened on Bush street called Tacorea, & I love their burritos. There's usually a line, and so worth it!

  40. As a San Franciscan I appreciated this well made video. As a drone pilot, I'd just like to offer a little advice in that you should calibrate the horizon before flight so your aerial footage is level. Most people probably wouldn't have noticed…but I'm sure some did. Keep up the good work!

  41. Ugggg, not "San Fran" as you come off as ignorant D-bags from out of town not knowing this simple, unspoken rule as only they say it, especially from SoCal (no hate except to those that can't respect SF). It's like calling LA "Los An" or New York "New Yo"; both sound dumb, don't you think? That's how San Franciscians interpret it. God and you people call yourselves "expert travelers" when you cannot realize this…

  42. i loved the fact that it was not the typical touristy view. I love history and enjoyed the stories about the past. Thank you!!

  43. shouldve done the mission during the day and the castro at night. also didn't mention North Beach when you were at City Lights. also forgot Golden Gate Park which was created by the same guy as Central Park in New York (except golden gate park is better cough). Other than that I really enjoyed the video and the history you incorporated

  44. Victorian architecture ended with 06 earthquake and fire. The style after this was Edwardian…not so grand as Victorian. There are no Victorians downtown.

  45. Kerouac, Cassiday and his wife lived on Russian Hill…Russell Alley just off Hyde (cable car). Ginsberg lived on Montgomery and Broadway in North Beach. Ferlinghetti lived on Telegraph Hill.

  46. I visited SF three times in the 1990s and my favorite district was The Castro – how could you omit it? An excellent place there is the Zapata Mexican Grill on 18th St one block west of Castro St, soon to go out of business due to owner retirement or just the high cost of doing businesd in SF – I had the best, most delicious burritos there.

  47. If you are looking for an awesome experience. Then check out our night tour of San Francisco:
