San Francisco Bay affords fascinating and unique venues no matter where you are in the Bay Area. However, it can be experienced best from The City and its environs. Travelers will find something interesting to see wherever they are! Sailboats, ferry rides, the bridges and...More

The Hilton at union square is quite handy and we used the hop on hop off bus to get around. We walked a couple blocks from the hotel to union square and bought tickets for the bus at 40 dollars each. It stops at many stops along the route. You can get off and they tell you where to get back on. We got off at Coit tower to get the best view of San Francisco, then Lombard street, it's a long walk but well worth it when you get to the top and see the beautiful area and winding road. The bus also stops at fisherman s wharf and I would highly recommend the codmother for fish and chips lunch, the bus also goes over the Golden Gate Bridge and stays there 10 minutes for photos or you can wait for the next bus. There are a few stops on the way back to union square but we didn't have time to do them.
If you want to do Alcatraz you need to book tickets in advance or you might not get them on the day as they sell out fast
Enjoy, we loved it and would go back
I would vote for the East Bay as a base with sojourns into the City, but I would stay more on the Berkeley/Kensington/Solano side of things rather than Oakland. Weatherwise, fall and spring are the sunnier times for SF... More
