10 Things NOT To Do in San Francisco!

Get more Tips here!
Today we check out some don't do's of San Fran, based on'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.”

The "Golden Gate Bridge doesn't refer to the color of the bridge, it is named for the straight it spans. This is called the "Golden Gate" because it is the entrance to the San Fransisco Bay, where most of the Gold went.

Here's a very useful tip, homeless and high/drunk people are EVERYWHERE, usually they don't do harm, just DONT STARE

Author Donny Domingo ( ago)
1) Don't go into the worst parts of the Tenderloin unless you're packing heat or in a big group. BTW - the worst part happens to be the bit closest to the Bart station around Powell and Union Sqr.
2) Don't give money to panhandlers.
3) Don't engage in conversation with random creeps on the street - they will try - believe me.
4) Even if it's 60 degrees in midtown, take a jacket if you go west of Van Ness, it might be 40 in the Sunset or Richmond.
5) Don't go to a music event in Golden Gate Park and make friends with random hippy meth tweekers. A girl from Canada did that and lost her life.

There is no tech industry, the activity in the bay area is an extension of Hollywood and the gay community. Essentially they devise clever ways to stick stuff in the human body in a sadomasochistic way. Now its VR, next they will be sticking chips up your ass.

previously lived in the bay area for 10 years or so and never needed an umbrella, it only rained in late winter for a short period of the year, and it got cold at night and hot during the day. exept in winter (same time of year it rained) you only needed a light or medium jacket. there are places in the east bay that get slightly over 100 degrees while itll be in the 70s and 80s in san francisco and other places near the ocean, ive even had it cold with rain in san francisco county, drive up 101 past marin county to sonoma county and its sunny and 80 degrees all day, it was always wierd when you get sent home for rain then drive home and its perfect weather 30 minutes or so away.

i don't understand why ppl keep saying that - sf locals & bay area natives have been saying "frisco" & "san fran" for as long as i've known. i lived in sf for 4 years total & have always heard "frisco" & "san fran". all my friends who were born & raised in sf say "frisco" & "san fran". i've been living in the bay for almost 30 years now & ppl here still say "frisco" & "san fran" yet all these travel posts keep insisting on this myth - i really don't get it.

as a San Franciscan I strongly disagree with your first tip and you do not need an umbrella everywhere you need to always bring a jacket or sweater everywhere some people don't even bother with them when it is raining because the wind will destroy it anyway and your bus stops right there

you spelled colour wrong

Author Arielle Gentelle ( ago)
Sorry guys but some of this info is rubbish, I don't know where you got it.

No one, ever has brought a milk carton to cow hollow. Useless advice.

There is no need for an umbrella at all times as SF has been in a drought for the last few years, and it doesn't rain that often in the year. However do have extra layers on, that you can take on and off at all times as the weather is temperamental. (FYI redundant point since you already mentioned to not show up with only summer clothes).

And lastly no one is dumb enough to call an ambulance for a fog horn, which has a very distinctive sound.

Please be mindful of talking about RELEVANT tips.

Dude where do you guys get your info from, I'm a FRISCO native, and we all say frisco unless you were born before the 80's, or we just say the city. Idk man, maybe think about a natives perspective, ask the people who grew up there, the SF natives, which there are becoming more rare with all this gentrification happening.
