    Firstly, you have to book tix in advance! Be sure to layer and west something warm. We went in august and I still wore yoga pants, T-shirt and a hoody. Gotta layer in San Fran!

    The island is getting run down to be honest! But this shouldn’t detract you from seeing this piece of history.

    Be prepared for birds and bird poo and an obscene amount of flies. I’m not sure how to solve this issue but the flies are out of control.

    If you’re in San Francisco you can’t miss it, it’s beautiful and truly amazing- we rode to the other side for a better look out.

    Attended a match and as a first timer on a baseball stadium this spot was simply breathtaking. Views and overall show, including the action itself was very well worth the trip. Highly recommended.

    The gardens were beautiful. We didn’t have a lot of ti e so could not explore as mulch as we wanted to.

    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.

    I spent an evening walking the trails her, going from Sutro Heights to the old Sutro Baths. The views, the flowers the landscape, steps etc, so beautiful that I crossed paths with three different couple having wedding photo shoots.

    While in San Francisco you have to ride the cable car, the wait was 75 mins but definitely worth it for this authentic experience. We purchased a $8 one way ride and its well worth the price. The cable car last stop is very close to Union square. Highly recommend.

    This place while beautiful would have been great if we had come as a couple but with our full family there there was nothing interesting or appealing for our kids to see. We had a beautiful view for lunch at Hog Island Oyster Co. But kids were so disappointed in the lack of sights and shopping that even a decent meal could not turn it around.

    We didn’t hire a car whilst staying in San Fransisco so hiked up the steep hills from Fisherman’s Wharf to see this iconic road. As I have knee problems and struggle going downhill we used the stairs at the side which are no problem at all. The road is in a beautiful area with expensive houses each side and is a must to see.

    SFMOMA has a great and wide collection, 7 floors of different kind of arts.
    wheelchair accessibility is great, and the set up is very big so enough space also during COVID times
    great cafe with outside sitting area, with some statues / art.
    easy to spend 3-4 hours here

    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.
