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. Attractions like California Academy of Sciences and Cable Car Museum make great kid-friendly stops. There's still lots to do: head off the coast to Alcatraz Island, take in panoramic vistas at Coit Tower, take in the views from Golden Gate Bridge, and see the interesting displays at Musee Mecanique.
