BEST FREE ATTRACTIONS IN SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA

article and images by Carole Terwilliger Meyers

          Many San Francisco Bay Area attractions are free!  And some that charge admission schedule free days.  Note that free admission policies sometimes change, as do free days and times.  Do check at the attraction’s website to confirm.  And do consider becoming a member of your favorite museums, as that often allows you and your family free admission and to participate in free days and events especially for members.
