    An unplanned drive out to this side of the bridge but glad we did. Battery Yates is a neat piece of history you can explore and also provides some amazing perspectives on the bay and bridge. Fort Bake...  more »

    We have visited this fort on previous visits to the San Francisco area and walked among the old "batteries" which still sits here.  Walking on these grounds gave you a sense of what it was like back in the 1900s, when these forts were active around the San Francisco Bay Area.   The old parade ground still exist but a "Children's Museum" (East Road) of sorts has been built on the grounds which we visited while our kids were small.  From the pier, you can see the Presidio, the Golden Gate Bridge, and the rest of the Bay Area when it's not "fogged in."   We also stopped into the "The Marine Mammal Center" which is located off of Bunker Road and along the coast.  This whole area which falls under the Golden Gate National Recreation Area is a wonderful place to take your family to enjoy the views.

    You need to check it out when you visit San Francisco. Super historic and protected with amazing views of the Golden State Bridge. Very windy so bring a jacket or sweater. Bring a camera to take lots of pics. Enjoy the scenery!

Where to stay in San Francisco

From inexpensive hostels in quiet residential areas to high-end hotels near the city center, San Francisco has accommodations for every budget. Key consideration is what kind of neighborhood you want to stay in. You'll find luxury hotels in Union Square, which has prime shopping, is near theaters, and is on the cable car line. Many hotels are in the northeastern portion of the city, near the tourist-driven neighborhoods of Chinatown and Fisherman's Wharf, both easily explored on foot. To get away from the tourist crowds, consider the smaller inns and family-run bed and breakfasts in some of the city's more charming neighborhoods, such as Noe Valley or Pacific Heights. There are also boutique hotels scattered around town. Avoid staying in the Tenderloin. If you plan to have a car with you, ask about parking availability and fees. Parking is often difficult and expensive.
