San Francisco is a top holiday destination featuring scenic beauty and great ethnic and cultural diversity.
Get some cultural insight at Exploratorium and Anderson's Conn Valley Vineyards. Visit Fort Funston National Park and Marshall’s Beach for some beach relaxation. Change things up with these side-trips from San Francisco: Pescadero (Bean Hollow State Beach, Pebble Beach & Bean Hollow State Beach), Rockaway Beach (in Pacifica) and Wine Tours & Tastings (in Napa). There's lots more to do: take in the waterfront at Fisherman's Wharf, kick back and relax at China Beach, get to know the fascinating history of Twin Peaks, and take a stroll through Union Square.
