Also, you can park at BART after 3pm for free. All you need to do is get off at Embarcardero and just walk north until you see Pier 9!

Penolopy Bulnick (author) 2 years ago

First excellent question posed. Where do you park? Unfortunately there is no parking in the pier. At least not for us or you guys.

It sounds like the best bet is metered parking which should be free after 6pm, so you just need to feed the meter until then. Also, it sounds like Broadway, which is the street just before (south of) the pier, perpendicular, is your best bet.

Sounds like a great vacation idea. I live on the east coast but my sister lives in SF, next time you run this tour maybe I will visit her.

Doh - saw this too late. Definitely interested if you do another one, and I can probably find 5-6 more people who'd love to come visit...

Penolopy Bulnick (author)  Patrik2 years ago

kentkb2 years ago

Jeebuz! That's what I get for leaving the house!

Thanks @Penolopy for helping.

Penolopy Bulnick (author)  kentkb2 years ago

Are you going to be able to come, or should I go with the next person? I just want to make sure since it is tomorrow!

Your timing is perfect, I was just going to email you. My wife sprained her foot, and I am on House Husband duty.
I will have to miss this one, but will love to come some other time!
Thank you again for your help.
Cheers to you and the great Instuctables team!
Penolopy Bulnick (author)  kentkb2 years ago

Thank you for letting me know and I hope your wife's foot gets better!

Penolopy Bulnick (author)  kentkb2 years ago

Number 17 dropped out and since you showed interest first of all those who didn't get a spot, you are now number 17 :D Let me know if you have changed your mind and can't come!

One day, one day :)

Oh my, I would love to visit one day! It's a long way from The Netherlands to San Francisco though. Can I visit if the time is ready for me to plan a trip to California?

Yep. Just email service@instructable.com ahead of time and we can make sure someone can show you around :)
