I loved taking the Cable Cars around San Francisco. I went kayaking and sailing. Ialso went to a Giants' game and the Girreldelli factory.

Quick Tips:

You buy Bart tickets in the amount of rides you plan to take, so put multiple rides on one ticket.

Best Way To Get Around:

BART and the Cable Cars are the best ways to get around. BART is like a trolley, only smoother and faster.

It was the nicest hotel I have ever stayed at in my life. The beds were comfortable, and the view was breathtaking. It was a ton of money, but it was worth it. My kids were with my brother, so my wife and I had a great romantic night. It is awesome, and I loved it!

It is a ton of fun. It is thrilling, exciting, and a great place to eat at. The food is a bit pricey, but if you go to the hamburger place, buy Top Gun - it is addicting.

Story/Tip

It is an old jail on an island in the bay. I loved going to it, and they have a ton of things to do there. There are still things there from when it was an active jail. You also have a beautiful view of the city from the island.
