And don’t forget to stop by our booth at the NAA Education Conference & Exposition. We’ll be handing out free San Fran survival packs while supplies last at booth #1107.
S.L.E.E.P. FIRSTThe last souvenir you want to bring home is bed bugs. Even the best hotels can have them, so we recommend you S.L.E.E.P. during your stay.
Survey all bed surfaces. Tiny, ink-colored spots are a sign of bed bugs.
Lift the mattress and furniture to look for bed bug hiding spots.
Elevate your luggage on a luggage rack away from the bed and wall.
Examine your luggage while repacking.
Place all clothing immediately in the dryer on high heat when you return home.
Travel with a jacket and comfy shoesSome believe Mark Twain once said, “The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco.” While the average June high of 66 degrees is not freezing, bring a light jacket, especially for when the morning and afternoon fog rolls in. Wear comfortable shoes, too. A flea can jump 150 times its own height, but you can’t, so good shoes are necessary for walking up Coit Tower, Twin Peaks or the city’s more than 40 named hills. If you forgot either of these, Union Square is a half-mile from the conference and has the city’s best shopping.
