San Francisco is a top holiday destination featuring scenic beauty and great ethnic and cultural diversity.
You'll get in some beach time at Bodega Dunes and Rockaway Beach. Take a break from the city and head to Armstrong Redwood State Reserve and Goat Rock Beach. Change things up with these side-trips from San Francisco: Castello di Amorosa (in Calistoga), Santa Rosa (Charles M. Schulz Museum & Safari West) and Sebastopol Center for the Arts (in Sebastopol). Next up on the itinerary: see the interesting displays at California State Railroad Museum, contemplate the waterfront views at Monterey Bay, take a peaceful walk through Muir Woods National Monument, and enjoy the sand and surf at Fitzgerald J V Marine Reserve.

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

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airports are San Francisco International Airport, Metropolitan Oakland International Airport and Norman Y. Mineta San Jose International Airport. In October, daytime highs in San Francisco are 26°C, while nighttime lows are 15°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 14th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.

Massive granite mountains, towering waterfalls, groves of Giant Sequoia trees, and wilderness as far as the eye can see distinguish the landscape of Yosemite National Park.
Kick off your visit on the 15th (Mon): contemplate the long history of Bodie State Historic Park and then look for all kinds of wild species at Mono Lake County Park. On your second day here, make a trip to Olmsted Point, explore the striking landscape at Lembert Dome, and then trek along Four Mile Trail.

To find maps, photos, where to stay, and other tourist information, you can read our Yosemite National Park trip itinerary planner.

You can drive from San Francisco to Yosemite National Park in 4 hours. Alternatively, you can take a bus; or do a combination of subway, flight, bus, and taxi.
