See Your Own Backyard: Movies, Ducks, Boat Tours, Wax Museum, Hornet, Air Tour

If you're been meaning to check out some of the local attractions that mostly the tourists seem to visit, you're in luck. On Groupon today, there's a slew of offers for local family fun at discount prices - links at the bottom:

Okay, this isn't actually a tourist thing, but I had to mention it. Regal Movie Theaters (including United Artists theaters) are offering ticket deals at half off. For $13 get two movie tickets. Read the fine print. No expiration date.

$29 for a holiday twilight cruise (normally $58), includes food, drink, live music. Good November 4 through March 31.

Wax Museum
$16 for TWO tickets (value $32) for this Fisherman's Wharf favorite.

USS Hornet
This Alameda aircraft carrier is awesome. $16 buys you admission for two (normally $32), or $29 buys you admission for 4

Bay Voyager
This Oakland company takes you on two hour boat tours (a rigid inflatable motor boat) to see various historic buildings, island and ships in day or at night. $69 allows two passengers or $139 for four.

Wildlife and Eco Tour
These 90 minute California coast and tributaries tour run $19 for one person, $38 for two, or rent the whole boat and bring 46 friends for $699. (half off)

San Carlos Flight Center
Enough with the boats already. Take an aerial tour for $199 instead of the usual $400, and you'll get a one hour Bay Area tour for up to three people.
