Exploring Golden Gate Park by Segway is faster than walking and more fun than cycling. But if you think that the Segway on the Golden Gate Park Segway Tour is simply a means to get around this huge park of 4.1 square kilometers (1017 acres), think again. It’s as much about riding the Segway itself as it is about seeing the sights.
My very favorite part about the San Francisco CityPASS was the first ticket in the book: the MUNI Passport. San Francisco has great public transportation (and terrible parking) so having unlimited use of the city’s excellent transit system in the bag made getting around a snap. And yes, you can use it on the “little cable cars that go halfway to the stars” too.

I had never been on a helicopter before I went on the Viator VIP: Napa by Helicopter tour. We were set to fly by private helicopter from San Francisco to Napa for lunch and a wine tasting and would return safe and sound to the city only three hours later. I loved the idea of spending my lunchtime drinking wine in Napa, but it was the helicopter portion of the afternoon that was so intriguing to me. What would it feel like to fly in one?
Opened in 1939 and painted a striking red color called International Orange, the Golden Gate Bridge is one of the most iconic landmarks ever since. It falls into the same category of the Empire State Building, Eiffel Tower, Big Ben and the Sydney Opera House. It would be a shame not to enjoy such a […]
San Francisco sits on a peninsula surrounded by water with the Pacific Ocean on the west and San Francisco Bay on the north and east. The area’s unique geography, including our infamous fog, protected it from discovery by disguising the entrance to San Francisco Bay from eager explorers. Even today the water plays a huge role […]
