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

One of our favorite walks goes through Chinatown and North Beach, up to Coit Tower and down the Filbert Steps to Levi Plaza. There used to be lots of colorful parrots up there, but we haven't seen any recently.

This is one of my favorite features of San Francisco and I bring friends here. Start at the top by Coit Tower and walk down admiring the splendid views of the Bay and the great quirky architecture. You might see a parrot or two. You end up at the lovely Levi Plaza which is a nice green space amidst the office buildings.

In my younger days used to time how long it would take to reach the top. Interesting hike for those in good shape

Just like the Greenwich steps slightly to the north side of the Coit Tower area, this hike should not be missed. The views of the city are hard to beat, and in many cases, truly breathtaking. I've been up and down the steps several times, and it is certainly a challenge when going up, but going down isn't exactly a walk in a park either. No matter what you are doing, whether going up or going down, this short hike shouldn't be missed. It's a great companion hike to the Greenwich steps.

If you like a challenge and are semi-fit you should try this. This is the way up to Coit Tower, on Telegraph Hill. You basically are walking up through a vertical neighborhood. As you rise the view get more expansive. There are some very attractive properties along the route. You do not have to run up the steps, just a leisurely walk with rest stops along the way is the way we did it. I tried to count the steps, but lost count at around 300+.
