    Great history lesson. We opted for a guided tour which was free. There is also a self guided tour which was free. Small kids may be bored. Food is not allowed on the island. We had to wear a mask also. Did you know it’s a state park? You can eat on the boat ride over. Several snacks available for purchase. There is a restroom at the dock and on the island.

    We walked over the bridge and then walked to Sausalito - then we took the ferry back to San Francisco. It was a great day.

    We wanted to experience a uniquely american activity so we booked tickets to a baseball game at Oracle Stadium. We got in quickly once our electronic tickets were scanned and found our seats easily. It was a beautiful day and the crowd was cheerful, at least in the beginning until the other team began to do better. There were over 30,000 people there but the queues for bathrooms and food were well managed and waits were short. The views were stunning. We thought there would be big queues to get out but we got out very quickly and the large number of people on the street outside
    quickly dispersed.

    This absolutely beautiful structure is done in Beaux-Arts style architecture that was popular in the early 1800s, meaning there are a lot of both french and baroque influences making it super ornate and stunning to look at, every detail is a marvel. There are Grecian women looking over the edge "into" the theater, greek urns on the ledges, latticework in the rotunda, stunning columns in a russet red color, shell and floral stonework at the top of the pillars; everywhere you look there is something more to see. If you love architecture you should allow at least an hour to see this stunning sight.

    Gale force winds dislodging your camera/phone from your hands, standing on the edge of nowhere with no bottom in sight all to get some of the best views of San Francisco. It was all well worth it. Twin Peaks is a must see.

    I’ve been here before and it’s great, interactive activities for young and old alike. Disappointed at some things removed presumably because of the pandemic though. But still a good time.

    This is a nice combination of an Aquarium, Rainforest/Atrium, and planetarium. So much to do. Cannot recommend the VIP tour highly enough. Very educational and you get to explore spaces unavailable to general admission--bone archives and Fish archives.

    Was an excellent exhibit and very informative especially Walt's family photos and history. There was also a free bus going back into town.

    A must see if in Cornwall. £7 to park your car was a bit steep in my eyes, considering all the tourists that pass through. You also have to pay to get your photo taken next to the Lands End sign. Great views.

    I loved the cable cars. They went everywhere I wanted to go BUT everyone else loves them too! The waits are incredibly long during peak tourist season. It can take an hour just to get on one.

    The Wine Merchant was an excellent place with a great selection to taste and purchase along with some cheese and meat plates. The bar keep James knew his wines and told us of interesting places to visit. Found some good things there worth the visit...

    One must visit this place to see how the street here first goes up and then comes down. The houses built alongside the street are very pretty and makes quite a picturesque view to watch out for.

    Good place for city views. We visited and couldn't find the proper place to park. We had to visit one at a time driving around.
