A leisurely day is planned ahead. All throughout the Union Square area. From Meals, Shopping, Drinking, A well deserved nap, and a Night Of Dancing till 7am! This is designed for One person, but can easily morph in to couples, friends, or whatever you prefer! It's San Francisco California. Where you do, what you want, when you want it!

Aerovergalineas's City Tips

  • Be prepared to pay for parking. "free" parking is a luxury!
  • Be very cautious on the street. Do not talk to strangers or vagrants! this trip is about you, No one else! always know where your wallet/purses are! Ignore "strange" people in the street! anhd HAVE FUN!
  • The smell of marijuana on the street is normal. It's California. Do not be alarmed
  • Do not give any money to people on the street, for any reason.
  • Avoid the area between: Taylor/Market to Larkin/Mc Allister and Polk/Ellis to Mason/Ellis. This is the worst part of the city!
