It's definitely a fun place to visit in San Francisco. Parking is a bit expensive in the area, but is worth to spend 1-2 hours there. There are a few rides for kids, plenty of gift shops, food of all kind, and option to see some good views while walking there. It is somehow close to Alcatraz island, and could... More

Great spot for fun and food. Of course we had to have the crab sandwich and it was amazing, there is an old fashioned penny arcade that was lots of fun. The seagulls are huge and can be a bit over friendly.

We took a cab from our hotel to Saulsilito but returned on a ferry. Quite fun and a different experience. They offer drinks while you are on board and some amazing views! Quick and inexpensive trip!

The SF Bay are is just beautiful. There are a million things to do. From sight seeing to club hoping to museum visits. The city itself is full of beautiful people also. Cross the Bay bridge over to the east bay (Emeryville, Oakland, Montclair) to see some the most gorgeous ethnic variety of women; yes women. Sorry SF but the... More

To experience downtown San Francisco to the Bay at Fisherman's Wharf, board a historic streetcar on Market Street and enjoy a scenic round trip ride from Castro Street to the Wharf. The collection of restored streetcars from across the world is impressive and the scenery is wonderful. One can also get on and off is a shorter ride is the... More
