URLs for San Francisco & weather alert! Mitch Turitz 19 May 1997 14:40 UTC
This is cross-posted, so I apologize in advance for any duplication. -- Mitch ----------- The following are URL (World-Wide-Web) addresses for San Francisco. You might find these interesting and useful if you are planning on attending ALA in San Francisco next month. Also, a word of warning about the weather: Mark Twain is alleged to have said, "The coldest winter I ever spent was Summer in San Francisco!" Summer in San Francisco can have a wide range of temperatures in a single day! Although it generally does not rain in summer here, fog and sun, cold and hot, are all part of living in the Bay Area. So bring something that you can be WARM in if the fog rolls in. You can recognize tourists in the summer in San Francisco because they are the ones in shorts, and shivering! Just a few of the many things to check out in San Francisco: The new San Francisco Public Library (http://sfpl.lib.ca.us/) Pier 39 ChinaTown Golden Gate Park Union Square North Beach The Golden Gate Bridge (it's painted Red, not Gold) San Francisco Opera San Francisco Symphony and outside: Wine Country (about an hour's drive North of S.F.) Yosemite (a few hours drive south and east, but well worth it) and, of course, visit many of the thousands of excellent restaurants in the Bay Area. -- Mitch and now for the URLs: --------------------- http://www.ggb60.com Golden Gate Bridge 60th Anniversary : take a virtual tour, order T-shirts, or just look at the bridge http://www.kpix.com/ The PIXPage: San Francisco's TV & Radio KPIX (channel 5 & 95.7FM) page with interesting links.
