Aquarium of the Bay

Aquarium of the Bay is located at San Francisco's popular PIER 39. Its focus, as the name suggests, is local aquatic animals from the San Francisco Bay (and nearby waterways). There are three main exhibit areas, each with a specific point of focus. The most thrilling is the underwater tunnel, though the touch pools and naturalist talks also help make this an exciting and interactive way to get to know the bay.

The Snøhetta expansion (completed in 2016) doubled the amount of exhibition space at the SFMOMA. The seven-story structure also expanded the gallery areas and outdoor public spaces, giving a big injection of destination architecture to San Francisco's South of Market area. The SFMOMA's permanent collection is a whopping 33,000 works, and there are always temporary exhibitions as well. When in San Francisco's SoMa make time for the SFMOMA.

Alcatraz

Once a notorious offshore prison where some of America's most infamous criminals, like Al 'Scarface' Capone, and 'Birdman' Robert Stroud were incarcerated, Alcatraz is now a visitor attraction operated by the National Parks Service. Reachable by ferry, the island is the site of the oldest operating lighthouse on the West Coast of the U.S. and home to large colonies of gulls, egrets, and cormorants, which add to the island's atmosphere as they circle overhead.

From the stunning copper façade right through the collection, San Francisco's de Young Museum is a journey into the world of contemporary art and design.

PIER 39

Home to the Aquarium of the Bay, the Magowan’s Infinite Mirror Maze and many more attractions, San Francisco's PIER 39 has a lot more to offer than sea lions - although, you won't want to miss a peek at those pinnipeds sprawled all over the jetty. Located at Beach Street & The Embarcadero, PIER 39 is a great family attraction in itself. Open late, this tourist hotspot is home to various waterfront bars and restaurants, retail stores, kiosks and food carts.
