If you haven’t been before I think this is worth spending a couple hours walking around, but it’s full of tourists and traffic. Check out the sea lions and walk around the pier shops and food spots, there are some good waterfront spots to eat...More

Walking along the dock was so relaxing and the scenery was amazing. You could see Alcatraz, the seals, neat little shops to stop in and good food to eat

Loved travelling on the bay. The ferry services here are fantastic and well organised. Recommend catching it over to Sausalito

Joes Crab Shack is the best fish n chips. The wait was worth it. I have been here and the atmosphere is always great. The view of the bay is a plus.

Lot to see., plenty to eat. Go at sunrise as you will be almost alone, get better pics and not get jostled by the tourist crowds

I live in SF and I always appreciate this beautiful city. I bring my family to spend an afternoon at pier 39. Clam chowder with bread is something must have every time when we are there.

I loved walking along the bay - probably my favorite spot in San Francisco! Even better, we found a bay cruise for only $15 per person. For one hour, we got to go around the bay and see the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz up...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... More

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
