|Some 600,000 steel rivets hold each 746-foot tower together.|
I walked the Golden Gate Bridge twice and experienced both of its climatic sides as well as its Art Deco intricacies.

On my final day in the city, I also spent a crisp, gloomy morning fogged in on Alcatraz. I'd been once as a kid, and the one thing I distinctly remember from that first trip was the cellhouse audio tour. Narrated by Alcatraz correctional officers and inmates, the 45-minute tour really transports you back in time. Although the crowds and cost can be a deterrent, I definitely thought Alcatraz was worth revisiting.
