the entirety of the bay is an amazing experience. we rode from the ferry building to sausalito, and also toured alcatraz and fire island. we also went to the golden gate bridge, fishermans' wharf, and various piers. the more we learned about the bay, it seemed there was more to learn! the beauty of it cannot be overstated.

So much to see, the bay views, the shops, even the "loud, smelly sea lions" were amazing. Had to see and have a crab chowder lunch
