San Fran - Most people think it's Lombard St., but it's actually Vermont Avenue between 22nd and 23rd.
Philly - Whatever street Ed Rendell is currently driving down.
Advantage - Push. Neither street can pass a budget...
Bob Saget Connection
San Fran - Saget starred as "Danny Tanner" on the cherished TGIF sitcom Full House.
Philly - Saget was born in Philadelphia, graduated from Abington High School and attended Temple University film school.
Advantage - Philly. Without Philadelphia there is no Danny Tanner. There is no America's Funniest Home Videos. There is no Half Baked cameo. There is no request to copulate on Murray Berenson's couch.
San Fran - Fisherman's Wharf.
Philly - South Street.
Advantage - Philly. The views at Fisherman's Wharf are great and I liked the seals, but after that it is far too "touristy" to enjoy for more than an hour. At least South Street has some fun bars, interesting stores and a few decent music venues.
San Fran - Alcatraz.
Philly - Eastern State.
Advantage - San Fran. Alcatraz is freaking cool. I'm fairly skeptical when it comes to things like this, but the audio tour of Alcatraz was one of the most interesting and engrossing tours I've ever taken. Combine that with the boat ride around the bay and the great view of the city from the prison and Alcatraz becomes a "must do" event when visiting the Bay Area. Also, Clint Eastwood never make a movie about escaping from Eastern State, so that alone gives the category to San Francisco.
