City-Discovery.com names its top 10 Summer Activities in San Francisco

From the classic Cable cars the city is known for, to Segways and electric bikes, City Discovery presents its top 10 things to do in San Francisco this summer.


2010-08-19
TOLEDO, OH, August 19, 2010 (Press-News.org) City-Discovery.com names its top 10 summer activities in San Francisco, selected from over 30 attractions in the Bay Area. The travel website announced that its Top 10 picks are based on customer reviews, ratings and bookings. Popular attractions include the Golden Gate Bridge, cable cars, Alcatraz, and Chinatown.

Day tours in nearby attractions outside city limits, such as Wine Country, Yosemite, Muir Woods and Sausalito also found their way to the top 10.

The selected activities in San Francisco are part of a series of top 10 recommended summer activities in popular destinations on City-Discovery.com. Aside from highlighting themes such as sightseeing tours, off-the-beaten-path activities, shopping tours, food and wine-tasting, the top 10 series also featured itineraries by expert travel guides, pickup and drop-off transfers, and other travel options.

Top 10 Summer Activities in and around San Francisco
In San Francisco, sightseeing combining a three and half-hour Deluxe City Tour with a 45-minute Bay Cruise leads the list. This activity covers the city's major sites, Lombard Street, designer boutiques and department stores, as well as Twin Peaks, which offers sweeping 360-degree views of the city. The city sightseeing and bay cruise can be scheduled on different days.

Also very popular is the City Pass San Francisco, offering skip-the-line access to many of the city's most popular attractions, priced at over 40 percent less than tickets purchased separately.

The pocket-size booklet contains five premier attraction admission tickets, and a ticket allowing for a week's worth of unlimited Muni transportation and cable car rides. A map, attraction details, transportation directions, best times to visit, destination tips, and money-saving coupons make the San Francisco CityPass an organized and budget-friendly travel solution for both action-packed weekends and longer, more leisurely-paced city explorations.

The Motorized Cable Car Tour with Bay Cruise is a two-and-a-half hour tour aboard authentic San Francisco cable cars, as well as a 45-minute cruise along the San Francisco Bay. The driver-guide gives a narration of the city's history and attractions while passengers sit back and enjoy the ride. Featured attractions are the Golden Gate Bridge, Pier 39, Fisherman's Wharf, Palace of Fine Arts, The Exploratorium, Fort Point, The Presidio, and Japan Town.

San Francisco Fisherman's Wharf Waterfront Guided Segway Tour is a fully narrated tour exploring the city's waterfront on Segway. Featured attractions include the Municipal Pier, Aquatic Park, Fisherman's Wharf, Cable Car turnaround, Ghirardelli Square, National Maritime Museum, views of the Alcatraz, and the Golden Gate Bridge. If time permits, a loop through North Beach (San Francisco's Little Italy) will be included.

The Electric Bike Tour over the Golden Gate Bridge highlights the diverse history of the city. This four-hour guided tour across the famed Golden Gate Bridge reaches quaint Sausalito, with a return by Ferry. The tour features UltraMotor A2B electric bikes, designed for bikers of all abilities. Bike-fitting, safety orientation, and test drive are provided for.

The Alcatraz and GoCar SF 1 Hour Tour Combo explores the city on a GoCar, what Time magazine once described as "The most amazing invention of the year." It includes a cruise to Alcatraz Island, famously called "The Rock". The comprehensive audio tour exploring Alcatraz Island, site of the first lighthouse and US Fort in the west coast, gives much light to the history of the infamous penitentiary.

An Evening in San Francisco Including Chinatown Walking Tour and Dinner offers a multi-course feast in one of Chinatown's epicurean centers. Dinner will be followed with a guided walking tour of the mysteries and marvels of Chinatown, and by a ride through the city, across the Bay Bridge to Treasure Island.

For trips outside the city, Yosemite in a Day by Bus is one of the most popular on City-Discovery.com. Yosemite National Park embraces about 1,200 square miles of scenic wild lands right at the heart of Yosemite Valley, one of the natural wonders of the world. The site is a half-mile deep depression carved by glaciers during the last ice age and has soaring 3,000-foot high granite domes and powerful waterfalls.

Muir Woods and Sausalito with Bay Cruise combines three great tours. Muir Woods and Sausalito are but two of California's unique tourist attractions just north of the Golden Gate Bridge. In Muir Woods a few of the remaining groves of virgin Coastal Redwoods will be visited. In Sausalito, with its Mediterranean ambiance, must-sees are the village of art galleries, quaint shops, and waterfront restaurants with views of San Francisco across the bay. This activity includes a 45 minute narrated cruise on the Bay.

The Wine Country Tour highlights Napa Valley, Sonoma, and all that the Northern California Wine Country has to offer. It walks participants through the ins and outs of wine production as it takes place in both large scale and small boutique wineries. Wine tasting at selected wineries is part of the deal.
