San Francisco is a small city making it easy for tourists to get around as sights are close to each other. San Francisco is filled with beauty, from pretty colorful houses, ocean views, rolling hills and more, so don’t leave your camera behind when touring the city of San Francisco. Fisherman’s Wharf and Union Square are the most popular and busiest for tourists. While walking around Fisherman’s Wharf you may come across Maritime Museum which has several murals portraying a modern art world encompassing wild and natural marine life. If you are wanting to visit Alcatraz Island you might have to book before you even get to San Francisco as you have to book at least two weeks in advance as the tours get booked out quickly. When making a booking make sure it’s one that takes you onto the Island and not just a sail past as you will be disappointed otherwise. Take a walk or a drive across the Golden Gate Bridge. The bridge is an internationally recognized symbol of San Francisco.
