Fondest memory: When you think of San Francisco, the first thing that probably comes to mind is the Golden Gate Bridge. This bridge is a symbol of San Francisco and can be considered one of the wonders of the world. The Golden Gate Bridge, as its name suggests, is to many like the gateway to America. You should not miss the bridge while you're in the Bay Area; it's hard to miss it really because you can see it from everywhere (even across the bay in Berkeley).
Favorite thing: Driving from the northern wine country, through Marin County (home of Skywalker Ranch), you clear a hill and there it is: the Golden Gate Bridge, red and bold, shrouded in wispy mist rolling in from the Pacific, linking two green hills on either side of the Bay. San Francisco's skyline, though not as expansive and conquering as New York's (but where is?), lies beyond, crowned by the sharp Trans Am Pyramid but adorned with rolling city hills. That is a great view, one of the most famous in the world.
There are so many great things to do in SF, that it's hard choosing just one. One thing that springs to mind was driving across the Golden Gate bridge - it was totally exhilarating.
Fondest memory: San Francisco was a beautiful city. It had a strange feel of a small old town about it, what with it's beautiful wooden houses and lack of crowdedness. I'll keep forever the image of watching the fog roll across the bay.
Visit the Golden Gate Bridge: there's good view-points at either side, and if you are feeling energetic, you can walk or cycle from one end to the other. If you come by car, the bridge gets quite busy and queues are common. There's also a toll charge on each of the bridges.
Alcatraz is a good visit as well, but booking is advisable as the tour is very popular. Alcatraz has been featured in a few films and was a high-security prison on an island. Now closed, the tour includes the ferry-ride out to the island.
Fondest memory: Is Fisherman's Wharf and the famous Cable Car's.
Very beautiful city, nice streets with bouldings on the mountains
Fondest memory: You have to see Goldan Gate Bridge, Alcatraz-prizon, Union Sq, China Town. And very nice beaches and coast nearby.
Walk across the Golden Gate bridge. The traffic is a little anoying (due to the noise) but it's one of those things you just have to do.
Fondest memory: Having some great seafood down by the pier.
Favorite thing: The Golden Gate Bridge is one of the two major bridges that connect the city to the rest of the bay!!!
Visit Golden Gate Bridge. San Francisco's most recognized emblem.
This view of the bridge is from Palace of the Legion of Honor.
Walk on the Golden Gate bridge. Also drive to Sausalito in the other side.´
Don't forget the Bay brige
Fondest memory: The atmosphere of Pier 39 and the Fisherman's Wharf area.
Crossing the Golden Gate Bridge like 3 times. It was great. What a view.
One day clear, the other day foggy!
