Straight to the Gate Access: Golden Gate Bay Cruise

475 reviews
It can be challenging to see top San Francisco sights in one day. This San Francisco Bay cruise from Fisherman's Wharf lets you see top attractions such as the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, Angel Island, and Sausalito from the water in a short amount of time. The open ticket can be used within a year of purchase, allowing you flexibility, especially with multiple departures per day.

I really enjoyed walking up tall hills and seeing in every corner a beautiful peace of art. Everyone in this city is so nice! Made me really consider being a resident ! Most of all the chinese restaurants are delicious!

It's a nice place to stroll through. The Eastern Bakery is awesome.Souvenirs are also fairly priced. Stay away from any place selling crystal - it's all cheap knock-offs. Definitely stay away from New Age Camera at 827 Grant. There are two sleazy eastern-blocks con men that work in that place and sell absolute garbage at ridiculous prices. Your best best is to take a few photos at Dragons Gate (Bush and Grant). Walk up Grant. Again, don't buy anything from anyone with a Russian / Ukrainian / Eastern Block accent.

We made it a point to come to Chinatown during our visit, mainly to eat some good Chinese food. But also to explore and enjoy the sights and sounds (i.e. commotion) that happens in Chinatown. It was great to shop around and the street art was really cool. Due to covid things are much less busy but the essence is still there. The main street is primarily for the tourists but off the side streets you can see/feel the everyday life and activity that goes on.

We picked a beautiful day to walk round Chinatown and had a wonderful time. We bought bits and pieces in several shops and took in the superb atmosphere and the hustle bustle of the shop staff and the customers. Thoroughly enjoyed by all of our family

A beautiful day in Chinatown however much has changed with COVID-19. Businesses are reopening slowly, most are closed and everyone that is open have mask. One of my favorite places to just people watch is Portsmouth Square where Asian gentlemen play Chinese Chase. The competitive camaraderie is so fun to watch. My recommendation is wait longer for personal travel. But if your in the area it's safe enough I feel.
