    The Golden Gate Bridge is the most iconic thing about San Francisco and no trip to the city is complete without it. We drove across it to get to Muir Woods and unfortunately, due to bad weather they closed the vista points for photos. There is a toll to pay for when you cross it. On a clear day you can get some amazing photos of the bridge.

    Saw a Giants game. Awesome. Very friendly people. Burger was crap. So was my wife’s hotdog. Each covered about 1/2 the bun. Transportation to and from lacks from other stadiums. For a city they should have a better system.

    This was the location that my daughter and son-in-law selected for their wedding.

    The weather and venue were perfect.

    The grounds are beautiful, well worth a visit.

    Twin Peaks are the tourist attractions spot and situated in the western part of the city San Francisco. Two peaks are adjacent to each other. One can view the entire San Francisco city from the top of peak. Few steps are to be climbed to reach the top.

    This museum touches different sciences - biology (dissecting a cow's eye. seeing a chick's heart beating, shrimps), geology, physics (wheels, floating fabrics). So much to see and explore with kids. Worth the time and energy to visit!

    You won't need to read a review to determine if this spot is worth visiting. Just look at the pictures. If you plan to walk any distance, keep in mind that some of the hills are very steep and may be overwhelming if you are not in good physical shape. Do not bother parking in the Visitor Center lot if it looks crowded. There are plenty of other spaces on the street or across the street or futher up the street.

    Had to experience the cable cars and they didn't fail we had a blast on them, absolutely loved every minute of the ride up and down the hills. This is a must for anyone visiting. We got a day pass so you can go on as many times as you want.

    This is a very beautiful section of street with steps on a sidewalk. It is quite strenuous to walk this up hill most people may want to start from the top where there are great views.

    The views of the bay and city are lovely. If you walk/ride there prepare for a climb. But, this is definitely the best way there. It’s part of the experience to walk up the street to get there. When there, it’s a short elevator ride to the top. Place is small, but the views are worth the effort.

    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.

    I enjoyed a quick visit her for about 15 minutes. It’s free but the hours were only about 10-4. You can get a pass to ride cable cars all day for $13 which beats $8 per ride.
