USS Hornet Museum

USS Hornet, Alameda, CA
11 reviews

Great attraction featuring WWII, Vietnam, Korea and NASA Apollo history. You get to explore a good portion of the ship plus they have docents who actually served on the ship. Allow a minimum of 2 hours for a very basic visit. They also offer memberships and special events. Oh, the views of SF are lovely too!!

    This is a nice marina. There are a lot of marinas on alameda island, but this one is located on the south side of the island, making it immediately available to the bay. Unlike the marinas in the oakland estuary, this means you are can sail freely immediately upon clearing the breakwater, which is pretty nice. There are not too ...

    This is a rigorous sailing education. I was initially skeptical as it seemed a little bourgeois, but the instructors are top notch, and the standards for passing a class are rigorous: you can re-take a class if you fail, but no one get a pass unless they prove they mastered the material and can sail in the demanding condition of ...

    One of the coolest gyms I have ever been to... There are THREE soccer courts inside, a basketball court, a BAR, and a full gym... Even a full rock climbing wall and boulder. They do have a kids area, what does this gym NOT have?

    Now that the bridge has the updated lighting system, it has become quite a landmark attraction in San Francisco. The bridge is simply gorgeous at night from the waterfront.

    The Bay Bridge provides the black and white divide that neatly opposed the Golden Gate Bridge as entrances to the city. Bay Bridge, access to 80 and the route to Berkeley and business travelers commuting to the city. At night, the bridge is lit with light and the glow cast will remind you of Christmas.

    The Fox Theater in Oakland is simply one of the best (the BEST) music venues in the Bay Area. It's historic, beautiful and wonderfully staffed. I've seen Keane here (yes, Keane -- imagine everyone chanting my name and seeing it written across the illuminated stage!) near the front of the stage and it was very comfortable. Last night, I saw ...

This helps when you are cruising into a new store for the first time. Pro Tip #1: They have great sales on various sized plants. I have purchased ...

    This is a beautiful church. Right across the street from the lake. I've actually never attended it for any services though, I was there for a work function in their conference center that they rent out. Parking is a bear for this church since you are in downtown Oakland, it will not be cheap, especially during the week. I've seen ...

    Very cool brewery and taproom, although a little out of the way if you are taking public transit out of San Francisco. All their beers are well balanced and worth a trip to the brewery! Recommended Beer: Prohibition Ale.

    One of the most memorable concerts I've been to took place here. I saw Tyrese open for Brian McKnight,and the size of the theater made for a somewhat intimate experience. The sound quality wasn't too loud during the performance, so my group was able to make conversation without distracting the other people around us.

    The festival is really neat and it's HUGE! My friends and I came early, which I recommend. By late afternoon, there were long lines for virtually all the food/drink stands and the crowd was shoulder-to-shoulder. It was tough to get around, but luckily, we were ready to get out of there. Great festival to go with friends or family...and you ...
