San Francisco is a top holiday destination featuring scenic beauty and great ethnic and cultural diversity.
Visit Alcatraz Island and Twin Peaks for their historical value. Fisherman's Wharf and SoMa are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Get out of town with these interesting San Francisco side-trips: St. Helena (Pride Mountain Vineyards & Anderson's Conn Valley Vineyards). There's still lots to do: stroll through China Beach, take a leisurely stroll along The Embarcadero, snap pictures at Golden Gate Bridge, and take a stroll through Chinatown.
