One of San Francisco’s most famous landmarks is the Golden Gate Bridge. The Golden Gate Bridge is a cable suspension bridge that spans 8,931 feet across the San Francisco Bay. Deemed one of the “Modern Wonders of the World,” this feat in modern engineer connects the northern tip of San Francisco to the Marin Headlands, which is commonly known as the gateway to Northern California.

Another world famous site can be glimpsed from the bridge on clear days- Alcatraz Island. This historic island served as a prison housing only the most dangerous and hardened criminals for 69 years. This prison was billed as being “inescapable” and housed many infamous criminals in its day- including gangsters such as Al Capone, Machine Gun Kelly and even Mickey Cohen. The island has not been an active prison since the 60’s but remains one of the area’s top tourist attractions. Rumors abound about the island being haunted by past inhabitants and most visitors do agree the infamous location leaves one with a spooky feeling and a shiver running down their spine. Famously known as “The Rock,” the island is now run by the National Park Service and visitors are allowed to tour daily.

Set along the shore of the San Francisco Bay, this fun and vibrant destination has fun activities for any tastes. For shopping, pay a visit to Union Square. There, you'll find everything from art galleries and antiques to specialty stores and clothing shops.

Home to stunning Victorian era homes known to the locals as “Rows of Painted Ladies”, the buildings have been immortalized in many Hollywood productions, including movies and television series alike. Many downtown San Francisco hotels are also known for their Victorian architecture.
