"How do I get to Embarcadero from here??"
For a street that's only perhaps five blocks long (from Market Street to Bryant Street), Main Street runs the gamut for street ambience. It even changes its personality from daytime to evening. On the Market/Mission Street end, there's the Federal Reserve Bank - complete with terrorist-deterrent concrete blocks and 24-hour guards. On the other end, you're just a half block from the killer views of The Embarcadero. At night walking along Main Street can be a bit dice-y - what appears to be a pile of loose newspapers could have someone sleeping beneath them. But you can't beat parking along Main Street and then walking to a baseball game in June. The parking's a lot cheaper than the spaces closer to the ballpark, and you can enjoy The Embarcadero on your way.
