Anytime is a good time to visit San Francisco, the beautiful “City By the Bay.” My mom and sister came out to visit us in SF recently from London, so we were busy researching fun things to do and looking for ways to save them money . If you’re planning on visiting San Francisco during the Holiday Season (or if you’re a local looking for fun things to do) and want to save some money, here are a few FUN SF Bay Area sightseeing tours that we came across that offer good value (save up to 30% on selected tours) including:
September and October are great times to visit San Francisco – the cool summer fog is gone. And in nearby Sonoma and Napa Valley Wine Country, harvest season is in full swing. As locals, we love playing tourist for the day – the “city by the bay” and surrounding areas offer so many fun things to do and see. Here are a few suggestions for visitors and locals alike:
1. Take a fun Alcatraz and San Francisco City Tour. Book early because it sells out almost every day. Once an infamous Federal Penitentiary, Alcatraz (“The Rock” ) was home to Al “Scarface” Capone, George “Machine Gun” Kelly and Robert “The Birdman” Stroud.The “Cell Block” audio walking tours are fascinating. See famous waterfront views of San Francisco Bay and the beautiful Golden Gate Bridge. Visit fun local attractions, including Chinatown, Fisherman’s Wharf, Victorian homes, North Beach… and more!
What a FUN day out! The NEW California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park recently opened on September 27, 2008. It’s a “must-see” – especially if you have kids!
It’s the only place in the world that houses one of the world’s largest Planetariums, an Aquarium and Coral Reef, a Natural History Museum, and a glass-domed Rainforest — all under the same “Living Roof.”
Treat your family to a fun museum adventure over the Holiday Season – we can’t wait to go back again!
