  2. 2. Alcatraz Island Located about 1.25 miles offshore from San Francisco, Alcatraz Island is home to a now inactive federal prison. The infamous landmark was designated as a historic location in the mid-1980s. Today, it offers a variety of sights for interested visitors, such as the lighthouse and the parade grounds.
  3. 3. Pier 39 Pier 39 doubles as both a shopping district and a popular tourist attraction. The pier includes a long list of sub- attractions including an aquarium and a video arcade, but perhaps its most captivating quality is its community of sea lions, which can be spotted resting on the marina docks.
  4. 4. Cable Car Museum As far as free museums go, the San Francisco Cable Car Museum is arguably one of the most interesting -- if not the most unique. The museum is literally dedicated to the history of cable cars; it showcases a variety of old models as well as a gift shop and several other captivating exhibits.
