    I'm going to make my first Supercharger run from Orange county to San Francisco this weekend. I plan to make a stop in Fremont but since they only give tours on Mon-Thurs I'm wondering what to do for an hour while I'm charging.

    We'll be staying in downtown SF at the Westin on Market Street (no charging station), any suggestions for charging in that area?


    Thanks

    The Moscone Center Garage (entrance on right side of 3rd St., its a small entrance so watch out for it) has lots of chargers in the basement. Its only 2 block away from Westin, and only 1 block from the W. If you don't need to charge, the garage at Jessie Sq is really close to the Westin.

    There's not much to do in Fremont, its a pretty far walk to anything.

    Hope you enjoy your trip.

    I agree. Not much to do in Fremont Tesla. The area is pretty industrial.

    Gilroy is all you need, at least you can eat & shop while you charge.

    @Soarteeth: here is my trip up to the Bay Area: Road Trip in a 60 kWh
    May be some useful information about the Superchargers and the area around them.

    btw, join us in the OC Tesla meets (you can join the OC Tesla group by going to the GROUPs tab at the top of this website).

    I stayed at the Westin at Market/3rd in SF last week and noticed a HPWC in the entrance circle by the main door. Thought you West coast folks might interested if planning a road trip this summer.
