    Heading out next week and thought I'd check to find discounts of the touristy things to do in the area (Fishermans Wharf, Alcatraz, ect).

    Any tips would be appreciated as well. This is my first time and DH is playing tour guide (lived there for 5 years many moons ago). We only have 2 full days to play (Saturday&Sunday).

    TIA! :wizard:

    How about CityPass? It is $59 and you get:

    Muni & Cable Car 7-day Passport
    California Academy of Sciences
    Blue & Gold Fleet Bay Cruise

    Aquarium of the Bay
    San Francisco Museum of Modern Art
    Exploratorium
    OR
    de Young / Legion of Honor

    As a touring plan, I'd check out the 49 mile drive. http://www.onlyinsanfrancisco.com/maps/49miledrive.asp

    It's a nice way to hit all the major landmarks and areas on a marked path. Bring a labelled map, though, since some of the markers are not so clearly marked. When we take friends around the city, this is the plan we use. (I'm in the Bay Area.)

    The Entertainment Book is another good way to get a discount on attractions and dining. If you're going in 2009, you can get this year's book really cheap.
