    Alcatraz.. I consider that a must see unless of course you have a record and don't really like being back in a prison :)

    Other popular things are taking a tour of the city on a segway.. and these:

    The Urban Safari
    Golden Gate Bridge
    USS Pampanito
    Ferry Building Marketplace
    Press Club
    Lombard Street

    Def see Alcatraz! But BOOK Early!!!! The tours sell out fast and I would suggest even booking your ferry ticket before you arrive.

    If you stay at Fisherman's Wharf you will have access to the best parts. Hang out at Pier 39 (visit the local sea lions who moved in after the '89 earthquakes and refuse to leave) and take a stroll along the Embacadero there are plenty of shops to ckeck out.
    Heasd back towards Fisherman's wharf area to check out the local seafood (they are well known for clam chowder and "Chippino").
    If you're a chocolate fan check out Ghiradelli Square, or the Boudin bakery for fans of sour dough.

    To see most of San Fran in a day I highly suggest hiring a "go car". check out www.gocartours.com for details. They are 1-2 person gps guided cars that will take you everywhere you want to go, the best part, you are your own tour guide (with the help of the gps lady, who also gives a history of the areas you are driving through) so you get to stop off wherever you like and spend as much time at each attraction as you please.

    Other sights I can reccommend not previously listed

    Bay bridge and Haight Ashbury .

    Absolutely everything that Anna said plus you have to take a ride on the cable cars!
    China town is pretty cool.
    Golden Gate is incredible.
    But pretty much everything down by Fishermans Wharf / Pier 39 as Anna said is very cool. over 11 years ago
