San Francisco is a top holiday destination featuring scenic beauty and great ethnic and cultural diversity.
You'll get in some beach time at San Gregorio State Beach and Bodega Head. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Armstrong Redwood State Reserve and Muir Woods National Monument. Change things up with these side-trips from San Francisco: St. Helena (V. Sattui & Woodhouse Chocolate), Wine Country Chocolates (in Glen Ellen) and Castello di Amorosa (in Calistoga). Dedicate the 12th (Wed) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. And it doesn't end there: browse the different shops at Ferry Building Marketplace, stop by ARCANGELI GROCERY CO/NORMS MARKET, enjoy the sand and surf at Waddell State Beach, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Rodeo Beach.

To see photos, traveler tips, and more tourist information, refer to the San Francisco holiday planner.

London, UK to San Francisco is an approximately 14-hour flight. You'll gain 8 hours traveling from London to San Francisco due to the time zone difference.

You'll set off for Seattle on the 16th (Sun).

Nicknamed the "Emerald City" because of its abundant evergreen trees, Seattle is the cultural and business center of the Pacific Northwest, as well as a popular holiday destination.
Step off the beaten path and head to Dungeness National Wildlife Refuge and Snoqualmie Falls. For shopping fun, head to Chimacum Corner Farmstand or Pike Place Market. Get out of town with these interesting Seattle side-trips: W.W. Seymour Botanical Conservatory (in Tacoma), My Cheese Shoppe (in Puyallup) and Point No Point Lighthouse (in Hansville). There's lots more to do: look for gifts at Chukar Cherries, explore the wide array of goods at NORDSTROM, take a leisurely stroll along Hiram M. Chittenden Locks, and browse the different shops at Pacific Place.
