San Francisco is a top holiday destination featuring scenic beauty and great ethnic and cultural diversity.
Alcatraz Island and Cable Car Museum are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Discover out-of-the-way places like California State Railroad Museum and Pescadero State Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Armstrong Redwood State Reserve (in Guerneville) and Castello di Amorosa (in Calistoga). There's still lots to do: shop like a local with Exploratorium, take some stellar pictures from Twin Peaks, don't miss a visit to Ferry Building Marketplace, and take a stroll through Union Square.
