San Francisco: Gateway to the Pacific....

“If you’re going to San Francisco…” you might as well take in the attractions this city has to offer. Fisherman’s Wharf is the main area of focus on our San Francisco trip. The wharf envelops the total atmosphere of this city by the bay. No visit to San Francisco would be complete without a visit to the Golden Gate Bridge and the Island of Alcatraz.
