    Red face San Francisco in the Spring

    We are going to San Francisco in the early Spring, 2016. Any recommendations on what we should not miss? We are staying at the Inn at the Opera. Any good resources on Public Transportation?

    We were there for a couple of days in July, and we found that we liked the Hop-On-Hop-Off bus to take us everywhere. We then decided where we wanted to get off an explore. A multi-day pass allows for a night tour also.
    If you have time, take a tour to Muir Woods, about 45 minutes away. The redwoods are beautiful. We took a tour bus there, and it also stopped at the lovely village of Sausalito.

    Second the recommendation for Muir Woods.

    Also, I recommend a tour of Alcatraz. It's good to book those ahead of time as they can fill up. Golden Gate Park, and it's museums is worth time. Pier 39, Fisherman's Wharf and Ghiradelli Square are touristy, but fun

    We found a wonderful Italian restaurant near Union Square when we were there in October, Fino. http://finoristorante.com/

    Alcatraz tour tickets were booking a month in advance when we went, and we were shut out. Buy them way in advance.

    I second the recommendation for Alcatraz. We really enjoyed it. Also, if you are a bit adventurous, we loved the Segway tour "hills and chills". Riding down Lombard was a blast!
