We are visiting San Francisco in July for 3 nights. So far day 2 is very busy, we are booked in the Urban Trek tour #1 which seems to cover the main sights and then on the Alcatraz Night Tour (I realise this is a busy day but the night tour doesn't run on Wednesdays which is our day 1). Day 3 I think we will cycle over the Golden Gate Bridge in the evening we have tickets for SF Giants. Day 4 we have the morning probably local to the hotel before collecting our hire car from Union Square and heading to Santa Cruz.
Please could you let me know what to do with our first and last days? We are arriving at about 11:30 am and booked to stay in the Hotel Triton which I guess we will get to sometime near lunch. We shouldn't be overly jet lagged as we will have spent some days in New York prior to SF. We are a family of four with children aged 15/16 from the UK. I'm thinking on the last day maybe some shopping near the hotel, the car is booked from 1pm.
Thank you very much for your advice and time.
