Tourist attractions, suppliers and places worth visiting


San Francisco Bay, California


San Francisco Bay, on the Pacific coast roughly half way up California, is virtually enclosed by two peninsulas, one pointing northwards and one pointing southwards, which nearly join each other. The Golden Gate Bridge joins the tips of the two peninsulas.

The southern peninsula (which points northwards) has the city of San Francisco at its northern tip.

The northern peninsula (which points southwards) is called the Marin Peninsula or Marin County and has Muir Woods National Monument and Mount Tamalpais situated near its southern tip, both of which are well worth a visit.

The island of Alcatraz lies in San Francisco Bay, and forms part of the Golden Gate Recreational Area.
