San Francisco is a top holiday destination featuring scenic beauty and great ethnic and cultural diversity.
Get a sense of the local culture at City Lights Booksellers & Publishers and Francis Ford Coppola Winery. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Bodega Head and Point Reyes Seashore National Park. You'll find plenty of places to visit near San Francisco: Dry Creek Vineyard (in Healdsburg), Napa (O'Brien Estate Winery & Oxbow Public Market) and Point Reyes Lighthouse (in Point Reyes Station). There's more to do: examine the collection at Charles M. Schulz Museum and Research Center.

For photos, more things to do, ratings, and other tourist information, go to the San Francisco itinerary maker.

London, UK to San Francisco is an approximately 14-hour flight. You'll gain 8 hours traveling from London to San Francisco due to the time zone difference. Plan for somewhat warmer temperatures traveling from London in May, with highs in San Francisco at 23°C and lows at 13°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 7th (Tue) early enough to travel to Seattle.

Nicknamed the "Emerald City" because of its abundant evergreen trees, Seattle is the cultural and business center of the Pacific Northwest, as well as a popular holiday destination.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Chukar Cherries and University Village. Get a sense of the local culture at Pike Place Market and LeMay - America's Car Museum. Change things up with a short trip to Museum of Glass in Tacoma (about 36 minutes away). There's much more to do: kick back and relax at Alki Beach, look for gifts at Starbucks Reserve - Roastery and Tasting Room, buy something for everyone on your list at Pacific Place, and explore the wide array of goods at NORDSTROM.
