#TravelThursday – San Francisco Dungeon

Imagine if you will, walking down the streets of San Francisco more than 100 years ago. You’re tired, thirsty, and cold. Your quest for fame and glory has left you without hope, and the only gold in your pocket is the dust from wandering the mountainside and finding nothing.

You slip into the local bar, and are just able to rub two pennies together to afford the finest cheap alcohol they will give you. Then…boom, the floor slips out from underneath you. You wake up ever colder than you were before (if that’s even possible,) and soon realize that the floor beneath your feet is moving. You’ve been shanghaied!

At the San Francisco Dungeon, you can experience a taste of what life in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries in San Francisco was like, if you’re brave enough!

The San Francisco Dungeon is a uniquely thrilling attraction that will whisk you way back into the Barbary Coast’s most perilous past. See, hear, feel and (ahem) smell the chillingly amusing characters of the ‘bad old days’ as they come to life before you.

Will you lose yourself in fear or in laughter? Whichever way, it’s not looking good for your underwear.

The attraction is located right next door to Madame Tussauds on Jefferson Street (between Taylor St and Mason St) in the world famous Fisherman’s Wharf neighborhood of San Francisco. It’s all you need for a day out in one place (especially if it’s raining), and they can even save you money with combined tickets.

It is part theater, part themed attraction, and all fun. Check it out!
