Straight to the Gate Access: Golden Gate Bay Cruise

465 reviews
It can be challenging to see top San Francisco sights in one day. This San Francisco Bay cruise from Fisherman's Wharf lets you see top attractions such as the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, Angel Island, and Sausalito from the water in a short amount of time. The open ticket can be used within a year of purchase, allowing you flexibility, especially with multiple departures per day.
$34.00 per adult

My boyfriend and I are interested in plants from all over the world, so this part of Golden Gate Park was amazing! We parked farther afield and walked in, so we didn't have any trouble with parking (it was free, too!). The plants were organized by region, but even with the map it was very easy to get lost. Fine for us - we just enjoyed! The fragrance garden was a definite highlight. However, if you aren't into plants, it's little more than nice walking paths. (Also, if you have kids, definitely teach them how to read a map, it's very easy for a kid to get lost in here)

This will be on of the stops in your Tour or Hop on Hop off bus. Keep about an hour to explore all the things in and around the garden. Starting with SFO Public Library, The Garden and the Academy of Science all can be explored here. Picture perfect places all around.
