San Francisco Bay


With its ocean boundary being the Golden Gate Bridge, the San Francisco Bay is an estuary that shows up in many photos of the typical Bay Area tourist. Alcatraz Island and Angel Island State Park are two popular destinations in the bay itself. A bay boat tour — either to one of the aforementioned destinations or just around the bay — is a must-do. You’re probably not going to want to swim the cold waters, but consider one of the other aquatic activities popular here, like sailing, windsurfing and kitesurfing.
