San Francisco ©
San Francisco is a top holiday destination featuring scenic beauty and great ethnic and cultural diversity.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at San Francisco Bay and Muir Woods National Monument. You'll find plenty of places to visit near San Francisco: Castello di Amorosa (in Calistoga) and V. Sattui (in St. Helena). Dedicate the 21st (Thu) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. The adventure continues: explore the striking landscape of Alcatraz Island, take some stellar pictures from Twin Peaks, get curious at California Academy of Sciences, and take a memorable ride with Cable Cars.
