My 12 yr old son and I are going to be spending two weeks in the Bay area. We are staying in Burlingame close to the airport and have a list of things to see in San Francisco and the surrounding areas. What is the best way to get into San Francisco? Drive or by train? Which train BART or Cal? Here are a few of he places we would like to hit.
Basically the touristy stuff.
I am also wondering if the Tanforan Mall area is OK. Heard this area in general can be kinda of rough. But I used to live in NYC so I'm not sure what their standard for rough is.
And if you have an areas to avoid list that would be great too
