I read your entire trip report, so far, last weekend and loved it! I'm doing an ABD - BSM adventure in Hollywood / DLR. After that, I'm going up to SF for 4 days, planning to spend most of one day, or however long I need, at the Disney Family Museum on a Sunday, but the other 3 days still need a little planning. I have some tours scheduled for those days. Just wondering your opinion on Alcatraz? Would you have felt it was really worth seeing if you were traveling alone and didn't have the boys / men with you? I'm arriving around noon on a Saturday and still need to plan the rest of that day. I was considering spending it at Golden Gate Park rather than taking a trip to Alcatraz but just wondering about your opinion. This will be in mid-July which is normally quite cool in SF apparently. I appreciate your restaurant reviews, too! Certainly planning on trying the Dim Sum restaurant you enjoyed! Looking forward to more of your reports!
