San Francisco

Among the many awesome things at Cal, it's near San Francisco!!! A mere 30 minute ride of the BART for $3.65 (I think) and you're in one of the largest cities in our nation! Also, you can take the F bus there, but I heard that it makes frequent stops, so it takes up to an hour to get there.

Popular places to visit in San Francisco:

1. Fisherman's Wharf
-lots of interesting stores and clothes at really good prices

2. Pier 39 (there are other Piers, but this one is the most popular)
-Aquarium of the Bay
-Sea Lions K-Dock
-a lot of seafood restaurants. Look at these sourdoughs!


*****There's also an interesting street attraction: There's this guy called the "Bush Man." He covers himself with a shield of leaves and twigs and just squats there on the sidewalk until....Boo! He jumps up and scares some unsuspecting passerby. It's quite entertaining for the people who know what's going on.

3. Alcatraz: the prison on the little island, but it's closed now
**Personally, I think the Alcatraz is beautiful. You can actually take a cruise to the island and tour the Alcatraz. My family was here last weekend and we all went up to San Francisco. Here's the Alcatraz:

If you're interested in submarines, you can take a tour of this WWII submarine. I think it's on Pier 40.

Have fun!!!
