On this tour, students visited famous universities Stanford and UC Berkeley, and enjoyed other Bay Area sights such as the Exploratorium, Chinatown, and Pier 39, even getting to sample the famous Boudin sourdough bread.
This trip brought many new experiences and outlooks for the group. A lot of students got to experience riding a BART Train and trolley for the first time, which was considered amazing because it was nothing like they had seen back at home. Some students started considering applying to the Universities they visited, while others simply just enjoyed the three-day break they got with exciting experiences and new memories.
Despite the trip being fairly short, the students and teachers did their best to squeeze in as much as they can to get a taste of the city.
Both students and teachers loved the trip; many said that they would definitely go back, and some even started planning trips for the summer.
Sophomore Almila Tanar said “My favorite part of this trip has to be visiting Berkley because I got to see a new university.”
The teachers also agree that they had a great time and had some amazing experiences on this trip.Many of the students that went to the trip also recommend that anyone planning a vacation should really consider San Francisco.
Freshman Christopher Hutchinson recommends that “You bring a lot of money!”
Best and Worst of the San Francisco Trip (as told by the students):
Best Part: Visiting Pier 39
Worst Part: It was too short and cable car drivers are mean!
Must See : Golden Gate Bridge
Where they wished they had visited: Alcatraz
Arizona (the eighth grade Delta Trip) vs. San Francisco: Arizona, simply because San Francisco was too short
Was the trip worth it? : Yes! Good fun and a good price.
