“For nearly 50 years the San Jose Museum of Art has collected and shared artworks that define the time they were created in. The museum has various exhibitions including one that looks at life post 9/11. The museum is very hands on and encourages people to photograph the artwork and explore everything the museum has to offer. Since its opening the museum has been expanded to cope with the ever growing art collection that is on display to the thousands of visitors this museum attracts.”

“Open 10 - 5 daily Hiller Aviation Museum, located at the San Carlos Airport, is an Affiliate of the Smithsonian Institution. Within the museum, you’ll find a number of early and contemporary aircraft, including replicas of airplanes that were first built in the mid-1800s, and a number of “concept” designs that showcase some of the crazier ideas that aviation inventors have come up with. The open-hangar design allows visitors to wander and take in the sights and information at their own pace. ”

“San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge serves as the iconic symbol of the "City by the Bay." It is one of the most visited attractions and visitors love photographing it, walking across it, and learning about Golden Gate Bridge history. It's one of the world's most beautiful spans. The real "Golden Gate" is the strait that the bridge spans. It was first named "Chrysopylae," meaning "golden gate," by Captain John C. Fremont in 1846. Golden Gate Bridge Vista Points These are the two spots most Golden Gate Bridge visitors like to go the most: South (San Francisco Side) Vista Point: Parking spaces are almost always full, spaces are metered and if you let the meter expire, you'll pay a fine that could cost as much as a meal in a very nice restaurant. You'll find restrooms, a gift shop, cafe, and an exhibit showing the cross-section of a bridge cable. If you find this parking lot full or if you want to spend more time than the meters will allow, try these options: Drive away from the metered lot and turn left out onto Lincoln. You will find a gravel lot a short distance away on your left. If you are approaching from the Presidio on Lincoln, the lot is just across from the two-story houses that were once the Presidio officer's quarters. Weekends and holidays ONLY, you'll find more paid parking in a nearby satellite lot on the southwest side of the bridge. From there, walk toward the bridge and through the underpass to get to the vista point. North (Marin Side) Vista Point: Parking is free for up to four hours and there are restrooms. This lot is accessible only from northbound US 101 and if you drive across the bridge and plan to go back into San Francisco afterward, you'll pay a toll. The toll booths are all-electronic, so it isn't quite so easy as pulling out some cash. Find out how to pay in the Golden Gate Bridge Toll Guide, which is written with an out-of-town visitor in mind. ”

“A very nice and beautiful hiking spot. The parking is plenty and there is a lot of shade during the hiking which allows you to start anytime. Halfway to the vista point there's a cute farm where you can see nice farm animals chilling and roaming around. There are even wild deers roaming around sometimes if you are lucky enough to catch them. Most hikes are pretty easy (about five miles) and offers a great view when you reach the top. You can also challenge yourself with PGE trail which is nine miles. ”

“@ Andy Goldsworthy Art @ One of my favorite hidden gems in San Francisco is the artwork by Andy Goldsworthy Art in the Presidio. Goldsworthy is a British artist that uses the surrounding environment to craft his art. He uses sticks, mud, leaves, and other items for his pieces. He currently has four pieces on display in the Presidio. They are called Wood Line, Spire, Earth Wall, and Tree Fall. The first three are in the open and on display all of the time. The fourth is inside a building which is open on the weekends. All four are free. Location: Presidio Hours: Open 24/7 ”

“Alcatraz was the site of the first lighthouse in the Western United States but became a federal penitentiary from 1934-1963, housing famous convicts such as Al Capone and George "Machine Gun" Kelly. Now, this once infamous prison island is part of the Bay Area’s 80,000-acre Golden Gate National Recreation Area. Located one-and-a-half miles from Fisherman's Wharf, Alcatraz is one of the city's most popular attractions. A visit to the island includes a tour of the cell house where visitors can see where the prisoners lived. Although the last inmates were transferred off the island in 1963, the main prison block with its steel bars, claustrophobic (9 x 5-foot) cells, mess hall, library and "dark holes," where recalcitrant languished in inky blackness, is still structurally intact.”

“One of the most photographed locations in San Francisco, Alamo Square's famous "postcard row" at Hayes and Steiner Streets is indeed a visual treat. A tight, escalating formation of Victorian houses is back-dropped by downtown skyscrapers, providing a stunning contrast. The grassy square itself is an ideal midday break. One of 11 historic districts designated by the Department of City Planning, the area includes several bed and breakfast inns.”

“Visiting the California Automobile museum is a unique and interesting experience – and that is in large part due to the expansive collection of over 150 vehicles on display. Walking through the exhibits will take visitors past cars from 1885 and all the way through to 2011. It is walk through the history of cars and California culture!
