It's a great place to see golden gate specially at night time. There are heaps of car parks around so I did not have a problem. There is one dinning place around as well where I had my meal once which was ok.

From every angle from the city I tried to look at the bay any chance I got on our vacation week there. Its magnificient on every angle. Water ripping, gusty current, and if you get a sunny day the beauty is excellent!

A most interesting museum about Walt Disney himself and how his career and ideas developed. Not really for small children but teens might find interesting. Easy to spend 3-4 hours.

My wife and I took a boat tour of San Francisco Bay with Alcatraz Tours. The trip was great . We saw spectacular views of the city skyline, Alcatraz prison and the two main bridges. There was a special offer of two beers for 7 dollars-get in!

We were unable to get tickets to Alcatraz, so settled on a tour past the island, and a tour of the bay. The cruise took us around Alcatraz, and up to the Golden Gate Bridge. It was a relaxing experience.

I've been to San Francisco a few times but this time the Golden Gate, and the Bay bridge really stood out for me. My aunt and I went bike riding on the Golden Gate and it was freeeeezing!!
