During your San Francisco day trips, there is so much to do. Visit the Golden Gate Bridge, learn about history at Alcatraz, or shop at the Saturday Farmers Market for local items. See a show at the Civic Center and have your pick of genre. From jazz, classical, and opera to stand-up comedy, ballet, and Broadway performances.
