    Alcatraz is an amazing tour! The only bad part is the mask requirement on the boat, to be honest. The tour is included and you carry around a little cell phone sized device that tells you all about Alcatraz. You can go inside cells and walk all over the place outside. It is a very interesting place to spend your day!

    You need to stop and see this iconic SF bridge. Lovely! Fun to see how it works if you are nerdy like our family. Be careful in the parking lot - there were many cars broken into when we were there!

    Prices for Club Level are not cheap, but you must do it at least once. Celebrated my husband's 60th!

    This is such a beautiful place to walk around and take photos. Many people were getting wedding and graduation photos taken while I was there. The architecture, plants and wildlife are wonderful. Great place for a stroll or just to sit on the grassy side and read or people watch.

    We went specifically with the Japanese Gardens in mind and they were beautiful. But Golden Gate Park has much more to offer and really you need to spend at least a day there to fully appreciate what they have to offer.

    Gale force winds dislodging your camera/phone from your hands, standing on the edge of nowhere with no bottom in sight all to get some of the best views of San Francisco. It was all well worth it. Twin Peaks is a must see.

    This is a nice combination of an Aquarium, Rainforest/Atrium, and planetarium. So much to do. Cannot recommend the VIP tour highly enough. Very educational and you get to explore spaces unavailable to general admission--bone archives and Fish archives.

    Fantastic hike with gorgeous views - don't miss the shipwreck! We decided to spend 4 hours and walked the entire trail, visited the bath ruins, and continue to the small park south of the diner (now closed) where we had great beach and ocean views and views of the west side of Golden Gate park, including the two windmills. A lovely way to spend the day!

    We loved the cable cars. The perfect way to combat the hills of San Francisco. The drivers were really friendly and informative. For 8 dollars id say really good value for money too.

    This was one of the main things that I wanted to see while we were in San Francisco. The street was very interesting, and worth the trip down it. The view of the street from other parts of the city is beautiful.

    we were gutted to have gotten here to find out it was closed. We were hoping to have gone in and looked out accross the city especially as we timmed it to be there for sunset. Not sure if or when it opens?
