San Francisco is a top holiday destination featuring scenic beauty and great ethnic and cultural diversity.
Step out of the city life by going to Lands End and Twin Peaks. Get some cultural insight at Golden Gate Bridge and Cable Car Museum. Venture out of the city with trips to Phoenix Lake (in Ross) and Muir Woods National Monument (in Mill Valley). There's still lots to do: step off the mainland to explore Alcatraz Island, take in the spiritual surroundings of Grace Cathedral, engage your brain at Exploratorium, and steep yourself in history at Fort Point.
