I've never been to San Francisco, but I have heard a lot of good things about it. Guess you want to uasent Gavin, huh lol! As far as L.A. goes, I went there in 1995. Perhaps this is me but my experience there wasn't the most pleasant. I drove through a riot this was during the O.J. hearing, and the general vibe I got out of it was just plain crazy! I had felt down about NYC and wanted out of here SOOOO bad. After visiting L.A., it changed my mind about NYC for the BETTER!If I do go back to Southern California, I'll stick to DisneyWorld and San Diego (which I've also heard good things about). NEVER L.A.
