For your comfort and safety, please wear comfortable, closed-toe walking shoes (no flip-flops or loose sandals). San Francisco has many micro-climates, so dress in layers. Wearing sunscreen and, perhaps, a hat or a visor is a good idea. Also, bring water, a camera and lunch money, and be ready to enjoy a fun day.
