2. Cross the Golden Gate Bridge

Thousands of cars cross the Golden Gate bridge each day but the best way to fully experience the beauty of the bridge (and the views) is by walking or biking across it. Bike hire is easily available at various locations throughout the city.

3. Eat Seafood at Fisherman’s Wharf

Eat fresh seafood as you walk around soaking up the atmosphere of this bustling neighbourhood. Pass waterfront markets, souvenir shops and historic ships, and don’t forget to say hello to the community of local sea lions basking in the sun.

4. Visit Alcatraz

The famous prison closed in the 1960’s and today is a fascinating tourist attraction, take advantage of the recorded tours and hear about the legendary stories, plus decide if you could make a run (or rather swim) for it.
