ALCATRAZ ISLAND/ALCATRAZ CRUISES
  Pier 33, Hornblower Alcatraz Landing, SF | 415-981-7625 | Cost: $26.00 pp
       
  Not exactly a hidden gem in San Francisco but a jewel non the less.
Once home to some of America's most notorious criminals, the federal penitentiary that operated here from 1934 to 1963 brought a dark mystique
to the Rock. Many people, though, are unaware of the wealth of other stories to be learned on the island. A visit to Alcatraz will unlock the mysteries of this historic island. Best to purchase cruise tickets in advance, fee includes
boat transportation & tour* (2 1/2 hours)
 
2.
CAMERA OBSCURA
  1096 Point Lobos, San Francisco, CA 94121 | 415-750-0415 | Cost: $3.00
       
  This San Francisco landmark was built to resemble a vintage camera, but the origins of the camera obscura are far older than modern photography. Using mirrors and lenses, a living image of the surrounding ocean and beach are projected onto the screen. The difference between seeing that scene outside or seeing it on the camera obscura is the difference between reality and a dream.

the Golden Gate Bridge, this is the ideal spot. Mon, Thu-Sun 10am - 5pm
