San Francisco Bay Area Attractions & Museums

There's always something new to discover in the San Francisco Bay Area. The region abounds with iconic landmarks, colorful neighborhoods, major art museums, and, in the case of Alcatraz, one notorious former prison. Then there are theme parks, boardwalks, and steam trains-not to mention beaches, national parks, and wildlife preserves. You can't do them all on one trip, so view our attractions guide and check off your must-do's.
