    Well worth the trip over on the Alcatraz Ferry from Pier 33 (the only way to access the island). Staff were really helpful, cellhouse audio tour was very interesting, and there was much, much more to explore on the island, not forgetting spectacular views back towards San Francisco. Highly recommended.

    That's one of the must seen landmarks of San Francisco. Be careful because it can be so windy over there. We took the bus and got off at the parking lot. We then walked to Fort Point. It's a free museum and offers a nice view when you're on their rooftop. The assurance to take some pictures with no tourist!

    I love to share my culture and my love of live with everyone

    Sat in the View Level on the first base side, great view of the game, but the view out over the bay, beyond the outfield wall, was spectacular.

    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.

    The gardens have amazing specimens and history. Japanese Tea Garden was hyper maintained. If I had the time, I would have stayed all day.

    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.

    I could stay inside the rainforest all day. So magical and informative.

    So impressed with all the things you can do at this museum.

    They have a planetarium, a four story rainforest, a coral reef section, a bioluminescent “twilight zone” and two amazing exhibits right now. Sharks and venom: fangs, stingers, and spines exhibit. So fantastic. I loved sitting in a room and watching all the sharks swim by plus being able to put my hand inside a box to feel what a boa constrictor squeeze feels like.

    You definitely need more than one day for this museum.

    Can’t wait to visit their after dark event this month.

    Most of the walk is easy. Scenic views of Marin Headlands, SF Bay and Golden Gate Bridge. Very limited parking. Go on a weekday if you are visiting from out of the area.

    Taking the trolleys is just something you do in San Francisco. We did the long tour and it was so much fun. The trolley drivers are great at the tour and its amazing what they do. Really enjoyed the entire experience,

    The Empanadas and Red Bay coffee was so good, we went back for a second morning. Great collection of stores in the building, and lots of vendors outside for Saturday market.

    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?
