San Francisco is a top holiday destination featuring scenic beauty and great ethnic and cultural diversity.
Attractions like Bodega Dunes and Exploratorium make great kid-friendly stops. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Ferry Building Marketplace and Ferry Plaza Farmers Market. Get out of town with these interesting San Francisco side-trips: Castello di Amorosa (in Calistoga), Goat Rock Beach (in Jenner) and Limantour Beach (in Point Reyes National Seashore). There's still lots to do: head off the coast to Alcatraz Island, snap pictures at Golden Gate Bridge, enjoy the sand and surf at Marshall’s Beach, and explore the activities along San Francisco Bay.
