San Francisco is a top holiday destination featuring scenic beauty and great ethnic and cultural diversity.
San Francisco is known for nature, parks, and museums. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: make a trip to Golden Gate Bridge, take a stroll through Fisherman's Wharf, stroll around Golden Gate Park, and buy something for everyone on your list at Ferry Building Marketplace.

Plan my San Francisco trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

New York City to San Francisco is an approximately 9-hour flight. You can also drive; or do a combination of bus, train, and subway. The time zone changes from Eastern Standard Time (EST) to Pacific Standard Time (PST), which is usually a -3 hour difference. Traveling from New York City in November, expect San Francisco to be somewhat warmer, temps between 64°F and 51°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 23rd (Mon) early enough to travel to Yosemite National Park.
