This year we had the opportunity to be out on San Francisco Bay during the city’s annual Fleet Week celebrations – and it was amazing!

There are so many fun things to do in San Francisco and the Bay Area – and any time of the year is a great time to visit. We put together a list of 10 fun sightseeing tours that you won’t want to miss, including popular San Francisco attractions and scenic one-day trips to Carmel and Monterey, Muir Woods, Napa Valley, Sonoma Wine Country, and Yosemite National Park.
Looking for a fun way to see San Francisco’s top attractions – take a Hop-on-Hop-Off Bus Tour. It’s a great way to see the city’s sights, especially if you have a limited amount of time and want to see as much as possible. One of the first things we do when we travel to a new city is to take a narrated double-decker bus tour – you can hop on and off at your leisure or just stay on board and then go back to the places that you want to spend more time visiting. All buses are air-conditioned and offer free onboard wi-fi.
This is a wonderful time of year to visit the City by the Bay. Choose a 1 or 2-day City Loop Pass.
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.

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!
