I didn't realize there were tolls over the bridges, if I had known that I may have booked the hotel in San Francisco proper. The first time over the bridge I didn't have cash, so I was basically screwed, $25 fine coming my way... I learned quickly its wise to carry a decent amount of cash there. Despite some of those things it really has become my favorite city. The people are very friendly, the food is awesome, the weather is awesome, tons to do and see, etc. I see another vacation to the city in the future. Chinatown, the Wharf, and Twin Peaks were my favorite places.

Glad to hear you had a good time. I'll be there in Sept and can't wait! Where did you end up staying hotel wise?

We stayed at a very cheap motel in Vallejo, won't name it because I won't recommend it. We didn't stay in the room except for sleeping, so quality wasn't that important to us. Seriously, Twin Peaks is pretty neat, it suprised me a lot. We went 3 times, first it was too cloudy to see much, but still fun actually, watching the clouds whisk by hills and tall buildings, the second time at night (cloudless), and the third time we were nearby and it was cloudless so we stopped again. But make sure to take a jacket, it's very windy and cold on top of the hills. We also drove to the ocean near the Cliff House which was beautiful.

Btw, we are from Kansas and we stopped in Denver our first night. Ate at an awesome Korean restaurant, but don't recall it's name.

I would suggest taking the night time Alcatraz tour. Not as crowded and it really allows you to understand the feeling of just how desolate feeling life must have been for the inmates there.

Debating on doing that but I think it might freak us out too much

It's a little creepy, but not so much that anyone will get freaked out.
