San Francisco

City by the Bay

San Francisco is a top holiday destination featuring scenic beauty and great ethnic and cultural diversity.
Visiting Alcatraz Island and Sonoma Coast State Beach will get you outdoors. Let the collections at Exploratorium and Asian Art Museum capture your imagination. Change things up with these side-trips from San Francisco: Bodega Dunes (in Bodega), Armstrong Redwood State Reserve (in Guerneville) and Patrick Amiot (in Sebastopol). Spend the 13th (Thu) exploring nature at San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park. There's still lots to do: take in the views from Golden Gate Bridge, see the interesting displays at Musee Mecanique, get curious at California Academy of Sciences, and take a leisurely stroll along Fisherman's Wharf.

The Golden State
The country's most populous state, California includes landscapes that range from the forested northern coast to harsh southern deserts. Sandwiched right in the middle of the state is a fertile valley, home to farms, vineyards, and orchards. California's cities offer diverse attractions, from amusement parks and upscale shops to award-winning restaurants and innovative art galleries. Outside the state's big urban centers, places to visit include some of the nation's most rugged national parks, ancient forests, towering mountain peaks, and ski resorts. More than just a surfing destination famous for its beaches and winding coastal roads, California also boasts one of the world's largest economies, bolstered by the booming tech industries.
