Post by : Admin on Jun 08,2022
As we continue to help you explore our backyard here in San Francisco, we know that our area has so much to offer that it can be hard to decide what tourist spots to visit. We’ll help you out by sharing some of our favorites and most iconic sites in San Francisco.
This slender white concrete column rising from the top of Telegraph Hill, has been an emblem of San Francisco’s skyline since its completion in 1933. Its observation deck provides 360-degree views of the city and bay, including the Golden Gate and Bay bridges. With stunning views of the city, the murals inside the tower’s base tell a story of life in California during the Depression. Pioneer Park is located at the at the bottom of the tower with beautiful gardens and trails for exploring.
Take a short ferry ride to tour the inside of the Alcatraz prison cellhouse. Step back in time and experience the legendary island that has been a civil war fort, a military prison and one of the most famous federal penitentiaries in U.S. history. With historical garden, views of San Francisco Bay, and an exhibit: Red Power on Alcatraz: Perspectives 50 Years Later on display in the New Industries Building, you are sure to step back in time.
Day and night tours are available. Guided tours from the dock to the main prison building include a personal narrated boat tour around the island. Several programs and presentations are offered only at night. The road and walkways are steep. You will walk ¼ of a mile just from the dock to the cellhouse with an elevation change of 130 feet. For those with mobility issue they do offer support. A complete guided tour is about 2 ½ hours.
House of Air
Just minutes from the Golden Gate Bridge, House of Air is a world class trampoline park. The facility is open to host trampoline jump time, physical and aerial training on trampolines, trampoline dodgeball, trampoline basketball dunk zone, rock wall climbing, obstacle courses and so much more!
