Getting Around
What a gorgeous way to get around ! Get there early enough to park -by 15 minutes- or take an Uber or Lyft and enjoy not waiting! Buy your tickets on the boat. Stop at the Ferry Building in SF to shop and eat to later set foot onto Market St. towards the City Center or onto the Embarcadero towards the Wharf. Check times for ferries that go all the way to Pier 41- near Pier 39 and Fishermans Wharf. Pier 33 will get you to Alcatraz if you've pre-booked tickets and you need to prebook!!!

Just a lovely ride to the beach, not to mention the DeYoung Museum, The Asian Art Museum, Conservatory of Flowers, Japanese Tea Garden, California Academy of Sciences, Lands End for a Hike, and the ruins of Sutro Baths. Eat at The Chalet, home to some of the city’s murals from the WPA and some mighty fine food AND views!

But really if you have the time taste Hangar One Vodka, the brand that put them on the map, St. George's Spirits: Eaux de Vie, Grappa, Gins! , Whisky, and Gene says they're always experimenting. Fun fact: their view of the city was grandfathered in when they began business! Let me know if you hear this has somehow changed because of all the new developments on the island, would you?
