San Francisco is amazing! The public transportation system is awesome and easy to navigate. Toured Madame Tussauds Wax Museum, also walked down by the Warf and saw a sea lion! Lots of great food, trolly was fun too. Met a few ladies from Denmark on the trolly. If you don't want to wait in a huge line for the trolly, walk up the street a few blocks and catch it there. Nice retired Vet told us that trick ;-) Get your Alcatraz tickets up to 3 months early (won't let you get them further out than that). Ended the night with my mom, my six fabulous cousins, and myself at the Cobb's Comedy Club (#BertKreischer #TaylorTomlinson) and Karoke cab driving us home. What a great adventure!
