Head to North Beach area. Start by taking the opportunity to ride the iconic trams (cable cars): E car - Embarcadero line along the waterfront or the F car - Market Street and Wharves line. Head to Pier 33, should you decide to do the Alcatraz Island tour. Be warned ... The iconic Alcatraz island tours are extremely popular and require pre-booking far in advance, to avoid disappointment. Alternatively, Fisherman’s Wharf (Pier 39) has may options for refreshments to prepare you for a day of walking. Boudin Bakery is famous for its pastries and clam chowder, a hearty start to the day ahead. The wharf itself is a lovely start (albeit lots of visitors at times), with the Sea Lion colony nearby. Here you can also catch scenic ferries to Marin, Angel Island, Vallejo, or Oakland. Be sure to check departure times beforehand as this is definitely something that needs prior planning. Head to the Marina District, here you’ll find the Wave Organ which is an outdoor art sculpture designed to make music by capturing the movement of the waves. This takes you to the world-famous Golden Gate Bridge, which is at least 1-hr walk, to the vantage point and back. Just 1 kilometre away is the Coit Tower on Telegraph Hill which offers tremendous 360-degree views of the City. Alcatraz Island: Piers by Bay Bridge: Golden Gate Bridge:
