Today we check out some don’t do’s of San Fran, based on www.sftravel.com’s article.
Don’t pack a tropical wardrobe; the mercury hovers around 60 degrees even in summer.
Don’t park on a hill or even a slope without cramping your wheels to the curb, setting the hand brake and putting the car in parking gear. It’s the law.
Don’t stand directly behind a cable car gripman; you’ll get the wind knocked out of you when he jerks back on the brake lever.
Don’t send for an ambulance if you hear a chorus of moans, groans, grunts and wails, it’s the foghorns.
Don’t carry a milk pail to Cow Hollow; the old dairy district west of Van Ness Avenue has become a popular shopping sector.
Don’t call cable cars trolleys; they’re powered by the moving steel cable you hear humming in the slot beneath your feet.
Don’t plan to go swimming in San Francisco Bay unless you’re a member in good standing of the Polar Bear Club.
Don’t board a public conveyance without exact fare; the drivers don’t make change.
Don’t be caught without an umbrella; the coastal mists are capricious.
Don’t color the bridge over the Golden Gate gold; it’s International Orange.
It’s ”the city by the bay” not “the city on the bay”
Above all, don’t call it “Frisco” or “San Fran.”
