    San Francisco Bay is one of the attraction in USA and it is large tidal estuary in the state of California. Bay area is dominated by the large cities and thickly populated. Many tourists spots are there and foreign travelers will enjoy the tours and the food.

    Great spot for bird watching and strolling along the lake shore. Lots of little kids having fun in nature.

    There’s a 5 mile paved trail around the lake. Beautiful area to walk and take in the view. There seems to be plenty of parking, it’s fairly level and of course, plenty of dogs.

    Stopped for a few more Utes to view the lake area with gentlemen sailing their remote controlled motorized toy boats. Very unique to watch the fancy toys the men had out on the water.

    The bay itself isn't much and the long causeway-bridge certainly doesn't rival those that enter the city proper. But if you're willing to drive 15-30 minutes, the hotels here are nice and about half the cost.
