    Great tour for history buffs.
    Was interesting to hear the stories about inmates and what life was like on Alcatraz.
    It was quite cool on the island and on the ferry.
    We booked the night tour but due to the time of year it wasn’t actually dark so didn’t get the full experience.
    Also the night tour has limited options for a return ferry so we sat around for a while waiting.

    Attended a Giants game, on 8/2, the park was beautiful and clean. Transportation was easy to use getting to the park and back to my hotel.

    Great views of San Francisco! Is a slightly challenging walk (especially if you don’t like hills!) however it is do-able. Safe for solo female travelers as there are always people walking around (and up and down the trail).

    Spent several hours here with a 12, 6 and 4 year old. They had a blast. There is so much to see and do. Definitely worth going.

    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.

    The views of the bay and city are lovely. If you walk/ride there prepare for a climb. But, this is definitely the best way there. It’s part of the experience to walk up the street to get there. When there, it’s a short elevator ride to the top. Place is small, but the views are worth the effort.
