Alcatraz Cruise Tour
An Alcatraz Cruise Tour will irrefutably be one of your most memorable cruise tours in a lifetime. The thrill and adventure that the Alcatraz Island offers its tourists is phenomenal.

Sightseeing in San Francisco
If you want to venture beyond the waterfront, then a day date on the roads of San Francisco might be a good choice. City sightseeing in San Francisco is a great date idea, especially if the weather is warm and conducive for walking. Some of the things that you and your partner may want to experience are listed below; however, don’t restrict yourself to just these options as there are plenty of other activities to enjoy.
Visit Telegraph Hill
Telegraph Hill is an amazing place for couples who want some quiet time, away from the hustle-bustle of the downtown. San Francisco has approximately 44 hills; Telegraph Hill is one of the original ‘Seven Hills’ of San Francisco. As vans and buses are not allowed to enter this particular hill, you will not find many tourists here. It’s a beautiful hill that offers picturesque views of the cliffs. Coit Tower, atop the hill, is the spot that the two of you must visit and take some photos. It is a good idea to contact a local San Francisco sightseeing tour company as they will help you to arrange a half day SUV tour.
Take a Cable Car Ride
You are going to love the cable car experience. The cable car ride starts with a climb up Nob Hill and then moves ahead toward Chinatown and Russian Hill. You then need to come down to Hyde Street and the Fisherman’s Wharf. In order to avail the cable car ride, you need to stand in queue for your turn, which can sometimes be quite long, but it is worth the wait.
