I rode Amtrak to San Francisco to visit Kenny yesterday. It is a much better way to get to The City than driving. Instead of grinding it out in traffic, I was able to enjoy my coffee, read a book, listen to music, and watch the world pass by my window.
The train travels more or less along the Interstate 80 corridor and makes about three stops before Richmond. The Richmond station is a great place to jump on BART and finish the trip into San Francisco.
We had a great day, grabbed some lunch, walked over to a nice park, stopped at Rogue for cold beer and had a crazy-packed-rush-hour-Muni-bus-ride back to the BART station.
