San Francisco is a top holiday destination featuring scenic beauty and great ethnic and cultural diversity.
Castello di Amorosa and California State Railroad Museum are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Appreciate the collections at California Academy of Sciences and Cable Car Museum. Venture out of the city with trips to Bodega Head (in Bodega Bay), Healdsburg (Porter Creek Vineyards, Williams Selyem Winery, & more) and V. Sattui Winery (in St. Helena). The adventure continues: get to know the fascinating history of Twin Peaks, admire all the interesting features of Alcatraz Island, take in the views from Golden Gate Bridge, and take a leisurely stroll along Fisherman's Wharf.
