Then, fly along the coast over the Golden Gate National Reserve past Baker Beach and the Pt. Bonita Lighthouse then left over the legendary Golden Gate Bridge herself!


Next, it's on to Crissy Field, Downtown San Francisco, Oracle Park – Home of the Major League Baseball World Champion San Francisco Giants, then over the infamous island prison of Alcatraz.
