I could see the Golden Gate in 3 different angles: one from Sausalito, other from Fort Point and another from Coit Tower. Each angle has a different surprise... you can see San Francisco city from the point just crossing the Golden Gate and turning right in direction to Sausalito. From Coit Tower you can also watch the brave surfers in... More

The views, the dining (from seriously average to top drawer with prices to match), the trips, Lombard Street, Alcatraz, boat trips, tours, the cable cars etc. It has it all, so many must do's and most of them are worth it! So glad that we did San Fran and I cannot imagine that anyone would visit and not be left... More

I was lucky I saw this on a sunny day. We took a boat tour of the bay area. It was very informative and nice.

We walked from downtown to Telegraph Hill taking in the view of the Bay Bridge, then down to Fisherman's Wharf and along the waterfront to the Golden Gate Bridge. The sun was shining, but it was cold and so good for walking. The view of the harbour with the blue sky was magnificent. Plenty of cafes en route to stop... More

The Bay area has so many things to do surrounding it. It's beautiful at night with the lights from the Golden Gate Bridge reflecting the water. I love to sit on the benches near the walking trail and watch it splash on the rocks. Any where you go surrounding that Bay, is just absolutely beautiful.

Clean, beautiful views, lots to do! Northern CA is much more to my liking. So much to see and do around SF. Prices are not sky high either. Great for the whole family. Travel time was a little further back but still think it's a great place to see.
