I just graduated from collage (Yeah!) and got a job (Ye-ha!) in the San
Francisco 
bay area where I've spent just over 24hr ever (urk...).

Anyone from the area have any advice? Places to avoid, things to look into 
or watch out for? That sort of thing.

Avoid Blue Oyster bar, if you are not one of those. Other than that, you'll be just fine.

Be careful in the Bay, naughty sharks sometimes attack surfers.

As the local ACCU group, we meet in Mountain View every second Wednesday, which has already heard a brief introduction to D: http://accu-usa.org/ Perhaps it's time to start the Bay Area D Interest Group: "The Bay Diggers" :D Ali

Cool, I'll keep that in mind. BTW I can't seem to find what ACCU stands for. -- ... <IXOYE><

Ha ha! :) Not surprising. As the acronym is now a misnomer, it is not being spelled out: The Association of C and C++ Users. As I said, it's a misnomer now! :) Ali

The Marin Headlands are awesome.  Spend some time out there exploring
old bunkers and missile sites. For general info--the Bay Area is a big
place. If you'll be living in SF, Silicon Valley, etc, it may help to
offer more focused advice.

I don't have a place yet, but towards the south end of the bay (Silicon Valley etc.) is where I'm looking. -- ... <IXOYE><

I'm in the East Bay area, working in Berkeley at a movie VFX studio in R&D, but
living in a small town north of Richmond.  I'm more of a suburbia guy, but I
don't want to be too far from a big city.  Places to stay away from: most of
west/north Oakland, the iron triangle area of Richmond.  If you have to go
there, do so only during the day.  Good places to see: Marin county has a ton
of neat stuff, and of course down south along the coastline toward Monterrey. 
There are some good bike/hiking trails up in the hills above Berkeley/Oakland
(Tilden regional park, Wildcat Canyon area).  Walks along the embarcadero in SF
are always interesting, of course.

One thing you'll find:  you will never run out of good places to eat in the bay
area, be they hole-in-the-wall places in SF or nice/authentic restaurants
elsewhere.
