San Francisco is a top holiday destination featuring scenic beauty and great ethnic and cultural diversity.
Attractions like Golden Gate Bridge and Exploratorium make great kid-friendly stops. There's still lots to do: steep yourself in history at Alcatraz Island, examine the collection at Cable Car Museum, make a trip to Book Passage, and walk around Golden Gate Park.

To find other places to visit, ratings, and more tourist information, read our San Francisco trip itinerary maker app.
