Best place to hang out in a parked car in San Francisco?

This is not a sex question, I promise. Owing to some logistical ridiculousness, I'm going to have to spend part of a weekday sitting in my parked car, somewhere in San Francisco. No leaving the car. Where's the prettiest place that can be appreciated from a parked car? [more inside]

Bay Area beaches: out to murder me or what?

When and where in the SF Bay Area can I safely boogie board? Are there safer beaches? Safer tides? I see scary reports of several drownings a year, and it seems like all the beaches say, "Hazardous rip currents, if you go swimming you're an idiot." Baker Beach and Ocean beach don't seem especially hazardous to me, but the conventional wisdom is that they aren't safe for swimming. [more inside]

Help me plan 5 hours in San Francisco

I have a long layover in SFO next week just before a very long trans-Pacific flight. Of the time I have there, I have about 5 hours total I can spend in the city (after transport each way). I have two goals: tire out my 1-year-old, and meet up with some friends for drinks and snacks. Can you help me plan where to go for these? [more inside]

San Francisco bike riding

I live down in Monterey but I have this Thursday off randomly and I'm thinking of doing the following: Driving up to Ft Funston with my bike, parking at Funston, riding to the Golden Gate Visitor's center, doing the SF Public Library walking tour and then riding back to Funston. Is this an insane idea or doable? [more inside]

Hotel recommendations in SF for a romantic getaway?

My ladyfriend and I are going to San Francisco for a romantic getaway, and I'm trying to find the perfect hotel. Looking for something in the four star range, more or less. I can't seem to find any consistency in the hotel reviews except for the five-star hotels. Any recommendations? Views aren't necessary and I'm flexible with location, but a clean and comfortable (luxurious?) room is a must. Right now I'm looking at the Palace Hotel and the Argonaut, any thoughts on those?

Best Place To Catch Cable Car in San Francisco?

I have family coming to visit me in SF and they want to ride a cable car. I never take the cable cars and need advice. I always see a HUGE mass of people waiting in line at the cable car stop next to the Powell BART... How can we avoid that line? Is there a perfect stop to jump on that will have (a) shorter lines and (b) a good chance that nieces/nephews can hold on to the outside poles? We'll be walking all around the city so the exact location isn't important as long as it's a cable car with some cool hills. Thanks in advance!
