San Francisco is a top holiday destination featuring scenic beauty and great ethnic and cultural diversity.
Step off the beaten path and head to Castello di Amorosa and Twin Peaks. Venture out of the city with trips to Muir Woods National Monument (in Mill Valley) and V. Sattui Winery (in St. Helena). The adventure continues: step off the mainland to explore Alcatraz Island, engage your brain at California Academy of Sciences, buy something for everyone on your list at Ferry Building Marketplace, and pause for some photo ops at Coit Tower.

To plan San Francisco vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

Miami to San Francisco is an approximately 7.5-hour combination of tram and flight. You can also do a combination of bus and flight; or drive.

Surrounded by mountain ranges, forests, valleys, beaches, and deserts, the metropolitan area of Los Angeles is home to over 17 million people.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Disney California Adventure Park and Tehachapi Mountain Park. Explore Los Angeles' surroundings by going to Disneyland Park (in Anaheim), Canine Creek Dog Wash & Pet Boutique (in Tehachapi) and Six Flags Magic Mountain (in Santa Clarita). There's still lots to do: kick back and relax at Venice Beach and Boardwalk, don't miss a visit to Hollywood Sign, see the interesting displays at The Getty Center, and admire the landmark architecture of Bradbury Building.

For reviews, more things to do, other places to visit, and tourist information, you can read our Los Angeles trip planner.
