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 Alcatraz Island and Don Edwards San Francisco Bay Wildlife Refuge. Visit Golden Gate Bridge and Fort Point for their historical value. Step out of San Francisco with an excursion to San Pedro Valley Park in Pacifica--about 32 minutes away. There's much more to do: browse the different shops at Ferry Building Marketplace, admire the majestic nature at Marin Headlands, see the interesting displays at Exploratorium, and steep yourself in history at City Lights Booksellers.
