Major Attractions in the San Francisco Bay Area

Don't miss these World-Famous Bay Area Things-to-Do!

Executive Inn & Suites Oakland is conveniently located on the east bay, near access to both East and West San Francisco Bay attractions. We offer luxury accommodations and waterfront views that are much more affordable than rates found on the &other side of the bay", so remember to "Stay Here" while you "Play There", and you'll have a lot more cash to spend on the things you came here to do!

After the fog burns off each morning, you'll find typical blue skies offering unique and changing bay area views from any of the 43 "official" hills over which the city is built, as well as from major sites located on them: Coit Tower, Lombard Street, Twin Peaks, Nob Hill, and more.

The San Francisco Bay Area attractions featured here are all in a class of their own. Most are known world-wide, and each is a part of the reason that this area is so popular as a travel destination. Whether it's the iconoclastic Golden Gate Bridge, Fisherman's Wharf and Pier 39 for shopping and much more, the Union Stree or South Market Districts, Coit Tower, or Alcatraz, you won't have to worry about things to do, just which to do first.

San Francisco Chinatown

There are two hospitals, numerous parks and squares, a post office, and other infrastructure. Visitors can easily become immersed in a microcosmic Asian world, filled with herbal shops, temples, pagoda roofs and dragon parades. In addition to it being a starting point and home for thousands of Chinese immigrants, it is also a major tourist attraction - drawing more visitors annually to the neighborhood than the Golden Gate Bridge.

Chinatown offers a taste of Asian history and culture, with countless shops, delicious ethnic cuisine, open markets, museums and more. Celebrate the Chinese New Year in February.

Dining: A food lover's haven, Fisherman's Wharf boasts some of the best dining in the world. Salivate over fresh Dungeness crab served steaming hote at outdoor stands or in a variety of gourmet recipes at the Wharf's many seafood restaurants. Smell the fresh sourdough bread baking. Savor some locally made chocolate. The Wharf's eclectic mix of international cuisine is sure to make a hit with your taste buds.

Entertainment: During the day, street performers are here to tirelessly entertain you: magicians, mimes, musicians, jugglers, clowns and fire-eaters take pride in their efforts to make you feel welcome at Fisherman's Wharf. At night the wharf offers live music, theater, dancing, comedy clubs and much more.

Alcatraz: Over the course of its history Alcatraz - known as The Rock – has been a Civil War fortress, infamous federal prison, bird sanctuary, the first lighthouse on the West Coast, and the birthplace of the Native American Red Power movement. Today, more than a million people come to Alcatraz each year to learn about the island's human history and to see its birds, tide pools and gardens. You can see easily see The Rock from anywhere along the Wharf's shoreline. Numerous cruises take you around and to the island.

Cable Cars: San Francisco is one of few places in the world where people can ride on a national historic landmark. Refurbished and equipped with new tracks, cables, turntables and cable propulsion machinery, San Francisco's famed cable cards operate much as they did on August 2, 1873 when Andrew S. Hallidie guided the first car down the Clay Street grade. Two of the three cable car lines stop in Fisherman’s Wharf. Catch the Powell-Mason line at Taylor St. and Bay St., or the Powell-Hyde line at Hyde St. and Beach St.

Hyde Street Pier: Hyde Street Pier is home of the world's largest collection of historic ships by tonnage, where visitors can board several National Landmark vessels, including the schooner Alma and the 1890 ferryboat Eureka. Hyde Street Pier also offers regular ranger guided tours, chantey sings, special programs and hands-on demonstrations for all ages.

Sea Lions: One of Fisherman's Wharf's most popular attractions, the amazing sea lions of PIER 39 hold huge appeal for visitors of all ages. Most of the year, you can find hundreds of these local sea mammals gathered on the docks beside PIER 39, cavorting, eating and basking in the sun. Their numbers vary depending on time of year, but their distinct barks can always be heard from blocks away.

Angel Island: The other island you see from Fisherman's Wharf is Angel Island, one of the last undeveloped islands left in the San Francisco Bay. It is maintained by the National Park Service and can be used for biking, hiking and picnics. Additional information is available at www.angelisland.org.
