    Golden Gate Bridge

    851 reviews

    It's about a two-hour/six-mile walk from the Ferry Buidling to the Golden Gate Bridge if you follow the water's edge. It's a long walk but you'll pass by/near some classic SF sights: Pier to Alcatraz, Fisherman's Wharf, Ghirardelli Square, Fort Mason, Palace of Fine Arts, Crissy Field, and Fort Point. Clearly if you stop at all of these spots, it'll ...

    The Alcatraz tour is another must when visiting San Francisco. There is so much history, and the view of San Francisco from the island is unbeatable.

    Golden Gate Park

    Large park containing a wide variety of attractions. Best to go at weekends when it was closed to traffic. My favourite part was the Bison Paddock

    Fisherman's Wharf

    410 reviews

    A tourist hell and prime location to be wiped off the map this beautiful city, it's a hokey nightmare of the worst kind, and fails at any kind of authenticity. Do not mistake this for the real San Francisco.

    Riding a Cable Car

    202 reviews

    Getting to ride a cable car is a bit of a nightmare. Be ready to stand at least one hour in line to get your chance, but it's absolutely worth it. As you stand, you get to see the cable car riders turn the cable cars around on the tracks to make the trip back, it's actually kinda entertaining. Once ...

    Lombard Street

    213 reviews

    I found this oddly entertaining to look at (considering that you really just look at it), but it's definitely out of the way (and up a long hill) so you have to want it.

    Union Square

    215 reviews

    Great place in downtown San Francisco for free festivals and shows. Been to quite a few events hear from salsa to Korean art festivals. The hearts that they recently put up seem to be a real tourist attraction where tourists always take pictures of themselves with them.

Since I first visited in 2012; the park has undergone a major transformation to include Buena Vista Street (a replica of 1920's Los Angeles), and Cars Land where you can experience the thrill of Radiator Springs Racers. Home to California Screamin', Grizzly River Run, The Twilight Zone ...

    Santa Monica Pier

    206 reviews

    Santa Monica Pier is one of those places that you HAVE to stop by whenever you visit the Los Angeles area just to say you've done it/been to it, and then NEVER have to revisit ever again in your lifetime. I seriously don't see anything that's really that exciting about this pier. There are lots of other piers that have ...

The museum itself is free including the excellent multimedia iPod guides and any walking tours they offer. The terrace cafe offers fresh salads and sandwiches with a gorgeous view. Parking is $15 but ...

    Monterey Bay Aquarium

    148 reviews

    A visit to Monterey is not complete without a visit to the Monterey Bay Aquarium. It is hard to believe that it has been around for 20 years already. The highlights of the aquarium for me are the giant tuna in their 1 million gallon Outer Bay Exhibit, watching the antics of sea otters as they swim underwater, the bat ...
