San Francisco is a top holiday destination featuring scenic beauty and great ethnic and cultural diversity.
Explore hidden gems such as Exploratorium and Ferry Building Marketplace. Shop till you drop at Union Square and City Lights Booksellers. Explore San Francisco's surroundings by going to Goat Rock Beach (in Jenner), Bodega Dunes (in Bodega) and Castello di Amorosa (in Calistoga). There's still lots to do: step off the mainland to explore Alcatraz Island, engage your brain at California Academy of Sciences, examine the collection at de Young Museum, and take some stellar pictures from Twin Peaks.

Take the guesswork out of planning a San Francisco vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

Appreciate the collections at Petersen Automotive Museum and The Getty Center. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to The Grove and Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Get out of town with these interesting Los Angeles side-trips: Montana Avenue (in Santa Monica) and Anaheim (Disneyland Park & Disney California Adventure Park). Pack the 6th (Sat) with family-friendly diversions at Universal Studios Hollywood. And it doesn't end there: get a new perspective on nature at La Brea Tar Pits and Museum, enjoy the sand and surf at Venice Beach and Boardwalk, make a trip to Santa Monica Pier, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Hollywood Walk of Fame.
