San Francisco City Pass

I get a lot of requests for things to do around San Francisco. If you haven’t been to San Francisco before and want to see the sights I think it is really smart to buy the San Francisco City Pass. Unless you are going to be here at least four days it may not be worth it. Only $54 for an adult {although sometimes I see them even cheaper at Costco} the City Pass gives you:

-A 7 day MUNI pass for all Bus and Metro lines
-Unlimited Cable Car rides (usually $5 a pop)
-A Cruise around the Bay OR a Boatride to Alcatraz
-Entrance to Aquarium of the Bay
-The de Young Museum and the Legion of Honor
-The Exploratorium
-California Academy of Sciences & Steinhart Aquarium OR Asian Art Museum
-Entrance to the SF Museum of Modern Art

Besides being a really good deal it sort of gives you an agenda. Especially if you are traveling with kids. If you pepper these things with more charming activities like:

-Boatrides on Stow Lake in Golden Gate Park
-Ferry Building and a picnic on a pier
-A walk across the Golden Gate Bridge or down by Crissy Field
-Boutique shopping in the Marina, Hayes Valley, or Polk Street
-Alameda Flea Market {If it is the first Sunday of the month}
-Eat at good authentic SF restaurants

then you’ll have a nice blend of touristy/relaxing things to do.

    …and don’t freaking drive! I get lost so many times with those crazy streets it takes a little bit for the fun to start. 😉

    good post!

    What a great idea to do with kids. My husband and I love the Legion of Honor… that’s where it all started for us…

    We got this when we went to London, and it is a genius idea! A great way to save and see the sites that you really ought to see.
