Every year, thousands of families visit San Francisco to enjoy the many incredible attractions available in the majestic City by the Bay.

Angel Island
Angel Island is often considered the “less famous” Alcatraz, but this simply means that it’s less crowded and less expensive than its counterpart. It’s also the one-stop-shop for day trippers. Historical tours, hiking, biking and a cute café by the water--this island’s got it all, and it’s easy to do most of it in a single day.

Tour with Big Bus
The Hop-On/Hop-Off Big Bus San Francisco is one of the best ways to get to know the city and see all the top sights, including Fisherman's Wharf, Coit Tower, North Beach, Chinatown, Haight-Ashbury and the Golden Gate Bridge. Each tour features entertaining pre-recorded narration in 10 languages, so you’ll learn all about the city’s history, culture, and famous neighborhoods.

Ride a bike over the Golden Gate Bridge
Explore the beautiful, bike-friendly streets and waterfront paths of San Francisco all the way to the Golden Gate Bridge with an all-day bike rental from Blazing Saddles. Their easy-ride bikes, combined with their new, free mobile app full of helpful tips and sightseeing suggestions make the self-guided tours easy and fun for everyone.

Cruise on the Bay
Sail under one of the "Modern Wonders of the World." Glimpse sea lions and seals at play. Get an up-close look at Alcatraz, where Al Capone and Machine Gun Kelly spent their final days. And learn all the secrets of the fascinating City by the Bay. You can do this through Blue & Gold or Red & White Fleet.

Find thrills at a theme park
Experience thrill rides and attractions at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom, North America's only theme park featuring wildlife, marine life and thrilling rides. It's an incredible entertainment experience for the whole family, with one-of-a-kind adventures across three worlds.

Visit Alcatraz
Located one-and-a-half miles from Fisherman's Wharf, Alcatraz is one of the city's most popular attractions. A visit to the island includes a tour of the cell house where visitors can see where the prisoners lived.

Although the last inmates were transferred off the island in 1963, the main prison block with its steel bars, claustrophobic cells, mess hall, and library are still structurally intact.
