San Francisco is a top holiday destination featuring scenic beauty and great ethnic and cultural diversity.
Get in touch with nature at Alcatraz Island and Lincoln Park. Visit Golden Gate Bridge and Castello di Amorosa for their historical value. Change things up with these side-trips from San Francisco: V. Sattui Winery (in St. Helena), Davis Family Vineyards (in Healdsburg) and Armstrong Redwood State Reserve (in Guerneville). Next up on the itinerary: explore the activities along San Francisco Bay, get great views at Twin Peaks, take in the waterfront at Fisherman's Wharf, and explore the striking landscape of Muir Woods National Monument.

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.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Snoqualmie Falls and T-Mobile Park. Step out of the city life by going to Alki Beach and Hiram M. Chittenden Locks. Step out of Seattle with an excursion to Boeing Future of Flight in Mukilteo--about 32 minutes away. Dedicate the 5th (Tue) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. There's much more to do: see the interesting displays at Museum of Pop Culture, look for gifts at Chukar Cherries, stroll around Volunteer Park Conservatory, and wander the streets of Pike Place Market.
